My Approach to Helping
I'm glad you're here! I am Angie Lester, a Clinical Social Worker licensed in Georgia with many years working in the field of mental health as a Community Support Individual providing psychosocial rehabilitation and case management, and as a Psychotherapist.
I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, personality disorders, and mood disorders. I have also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma andor emotional abuse and PTSD.
I am an experienced marriage and couple's counselor and enjoy helping couples to experience better communication and connectedness.
My counseling style is direct and solution-focused. You will be treated with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, in a non-judgmental and supportive environment. My approach combines Trauma-Focused Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectal Behavioral, CBT-I, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Imagery Rehearsal for PTSD therapies. I will personalize our sessions and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
