More Info About My Practice

My name is Annisa Pirasteh. I am a therapist & counselor, conveniently located in Midtown Atlanta. I currently practice at The Launch Pad ATL. I have a MS in Marriage & Family Therapy from Valdosta State University and am completing an online doctoral degree in Family Therapy from the University of Louisiana.

The focus of my therapeutic practice centers on collaborating with individuals, couples & families from all walks of life. I have assisted clients with issues such as anxiety, depression, grief & loss, lack of self-worth, career issues, transitional life issues, physical/emotional abuse, and family/parenting issues - to name a few! My work with couples includes communication issues, pre-marital therapy, co-parenting & parent coaching, filial therapy, as well as divorce/separation. I am an LGBTQ+ affirmative therapist and am passionate about serving the community!

I am one of only a few Farsi speaking therapists in the Atlanta area. I work closely with the Middle Eastern and South Asian communities. I also have a deep respect & understanding of a variety of religious/spiritual practices, including Christianity, Islam, and The Baha'i Faith. I am here to provide a welcoming space for clients from all cultural & religious backgrounds.

I also provide coaching services to assist my clients in creating a plan for a happy and healthier life!

I currently practice under the supervision of Tequilla Hill, PhD, LMFT.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Not sure if therapy/counseling is right for you? Well, guess what?! Therapy is "right" for everyone! Therapy/Counseling is a wonderful space to explore your life and all the possibilities ahead- even when things are going well! It is commonly thought that therapy is only for those who have a problem or specific issue; however, therapy & counseling can be powerful tools in developing a plan & direction for the life you want to live and the dreams & goals you want to achieve. My creative, solution-focused approach to therapy empowers clients to utilize their own strengths & resources to overcome specific mental health issues as well as coaching them towards their unique successes!
