More Info About My Practice

My name is Annisa Pirasteh. I am a licensed therapist, conveniently located near Midtown & Buckhead. I have a MS in Marriage & Family Therapy from Valdosta State University and am currently completing a PhD in Family Therapy as well. My vast education and life experiences make me uniquely qualified to work with a variety of clients, from all walks of life.

The focus of my therapeutic practice centers on collaborating with individuals & couples looking for a place to work through issues in a positive, friendly and supportive environment. 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 support through divorce/separation. I provide PREPARE/ENRICH services for premarital couples looking to prepare for marriage, as well as committed couples looking to enrich their relationship.

I am an LGBTQQIAAP+ affirmative therapist and am passionate about serving the community. I have worked closely with clients through coming out processes & reconciliation with family. My office serves as a safe & inviting space for ALL clients.

I am one of only a few Farsi speaking therapists in the Atlanta area. I provide therapy to Iranian-Americans who can speak some English. I work closely with the Middle Eastern and South Asian communities, providing a supportive space - as the daughter of immigrant parents myself. 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.

In addition to my therapy and counseling services, I provide Life Coaching sessions to assist clients in creating a plan for a happy and healthier life. Ask me more about these services during a FREE, 15 minute phone consultation!

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Not sure if therapy or counseling are right for you? I encourage you to see this as one step in your larger self-care plan. Therapy 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!
