Working comfortably with a skilled psychotherapist who understands the implications of a psychological disorder on your physical health is an essential part of creating a healthy mind and body. At Pearls of Change Wellness LLC, we believe that “Together We Can.
Psychological intervention can help ease life’s transitions–everything from positive events like marriage, a new baby, or career advancement to more dire situations such as divorce, chronic illness, injury, or the death of a loved one.
The goal of talk therapy is to allow women to understand their underlying issues, the concerns of mental health conditions they are currently facing and give them tools and strategies for changing their behaviors or dealing with painful experiences.
Therapy can help expectant mothers, women who are facing postpartum concerns, and the partners of these women to address the various issues that pregnancy and childbirth are likely to cause.

Therapy can help older adults who may have difficulty with the transitions of aging to manage their emotions, find new sources of enjoyment and meaning, and find new support systems. It can help people face their fears of death if they have such fears and deal with grief as friends and family members pass on.
Therapy aims to find an expression of gender that feels most genuine and authentic for the client, given their own socio-cultural and geographic contexts. During this exploration process, therapists often assist clients in developing social connections and finding community.
Therapy can help you learn about what you’re feeling, why you might be feeling it, and how to cope. People who feel forced into therapy may feel resistant and find it harder to put in the work needed to change.
Anxiety & Depression
Often times depression and anxiety disorder can be treated similarly. In many cases, therapy can be tailored to an individual so that it works to reduce the symptoms of both disorders.
These sentiments of total overwhelm, frozenness, and emotional dysregulation are familiar to people who have experienced trauma. When our bodies and brains go through frightening experiences in which we feel utterly powerless, we may be profoundly impacted across the various planes of our life.
A person going through a divorce may feel guilt, fear, anxiety, depression, and grief. Working with a therapist can provide a goal and rational perspective. It can arm a person with the skills to work through the difficulties of the divorce. Those who use therapy to help them get over a divorce can often benefit.
Psychotherapy, or talk therapy, may help people overcome adjustment disorders. A person may meet one-to-one with a psychotherapist to work through the emotional and mental symptoms of the condition. Others may find group therapy helpful in redeveloping social and interpersonal skills.
CBT can help change negative thought patterns that develop because of stress. It is often used to help people find new ways of thinking about events that cause stress. These new ways of thinking can help reduce the impact of the stressor. Other types of therapy that can help with anxiety are often mindfulness-based.

It may help to talk through your concerns with a psychiatrist, psychologist, or other mental health professional. Through therapy, you can find better ways to cope with your feelings, solve problems, set realistic goals, and respond to situations positively. Sometimes family or relationship therapy also helps.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why do people attend therapy sessions?
People see a therapist for a wide range of reasons, including but not limited to stress management to a specific diagnosis. Sometimes an event occurs that causes an individual to seek out help, while for others, they may attend therapy because it provides a trained, objective person to help them work through some issues they may have been struggling with for years. Counseling can be beneficial because a client may feel a sense of control in their life and have the tools to make better decisions or changes.
How will I know if you are the right therapist for me?
The only way to know for sure is to come in for a session. Most people have a good sense of whether I am the right professional to help them within the first two sessions. However, I have tried to provide you with information on this website.
How long do appointments last?
Therapy sessions are typically 45-50 minutes, while corporate training runs longer per session. Clients usually meet on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, depending on the client’s needs. Length of time while in therapy will depend on the your individual circumstance. You and the therapist will determine that together.
How often will we meet?
To begin, we will meet once a week. I find it’s essential to gain some momentum in the beginning by meeting weekly, or progress can stall out. Once some or all of your goals are met, meeting less often will make sense.
Do you accept insurance?
If you are a client in Georgia or Texas, you can use your insurance to cover your session. Must be one of the approved providers listed.

What is your cancellation policy?
