More Info About My Practice

Hello & welcome! My name is Annisa and I am an Associate Marriage & Family Therapist in the metro Atlanta area. I currently practice in Midtown at The Launch Pad ATL. I have a MS in Marriage & Family Therapy from Valdosta State University and am currently pursuing 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, intimate partner violence, co-parting, filial therapy, as well as divorce/separation. I am an LGBTQ+ affirmative therapist and am passionate about serving the community by providing a safe & positive therapeutic experience.

I am one of only a few Farsi speaking therapists in the Atlanta area. I work closely with the Iranian community, as well the Middle Eastern and South Asian communities. I also have a deep respect & understanding for a variety of religious/spiritual practices, including Christianity, Islam, and The Baha'i Faith, among others. I am here to provide a safe space for clients from all cultural and 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 is right for you? Well, guess what? Therapy is "right" for everyone! Therapy is a wonderful space to explore your life - even when things are going well! It is commonly thought that therapy is only for those who have a "problem" or for those who are weak & flawed; however, therapy can be a powerful tool 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 and resources to overcome specific mental health issues as well as coaching them towards their unique successes!
