Shakenya Burch, Ed.S LPC, NCC, CPCS
Owner/Therapist

I am originally from Birmingham, AL. In my free time I enjoy exploring the city with my friends and family. I love reading a good inspirational or romance novel. I am a devoted podcast listener and foodie. Mental health has been my passion since 2011 and I love that I get to help others manifest the life that they have always dreamed of. I have watched people come into my office broken, lost, and hopeless and leave rejuvenated and thriving. As someone who has seen her rock bottom, I know how difficult this journey can be. My therapy style is very intentional and personal. If you're ready to do the work, then I'm ready to assist you. I offer a somatic look into healing that incorporates the mind and body.

Therapist

Hey hey! I’m Amber :) I am originally from Charlotte, NC. I moved here to Atlanta, GA in pursuit of furthering my education in psychology and received my Master’s degree in Clinical Counseling Psychology from Clayton State University. In my free time, I enjoy watching a good movie or binge watching TV series, as well as skating, going to brunch, and traveling. I strongly believe that we should prioritize our mental health, like we do our physical health. I understand how difficult, and sometimes scary it can be, to do that. I understand how sometimes, maybe even most times, your thoughts can take over and you feel like you no longer have control. I understand how certain messages you have received from peers, family, and the world may have you believing you aren’t good enough, you aren’t worthy, or you aren’t valued and appreciated. Life is hard, and it is even harder when you feel inadequate, hopeless, or unprepared. I understand, and I want to help.
I offer a safe, nonjudgmental space for you unpack whatever it is you are dealing with. I pride myself on being genuine, warm, and compassionate, and as a cognitive behavioral and person-centered therapist, my goal is to help you restructure any negative and/unhealthy thought patterns and core beliefs you may have, while also structuring our sessions to cater to your specific needs. My approach is collaborative and solution focused. I want us to work together to come up with your personalized goals to help you get back to or become who you want to be.

Jaclyn Tenorio, LMHC
Therapist

Hi, I'm Jacky! I was born and raised in Miami, Florida. My favorite things to do always have to do with the outdoors; hiking, swimming, running, and I'm looking to add camping to that list here in Georgia! I am a Dog Person, a Christian, and a Vegan (yes, you can be all of those things - haha). I first learned about mental health and psychology when I went through my own personal trauma as a teenager. Finding therapy a huge relief from the stresses of my adolescent life, I felt like I had finally found my true calling. Since then, I've worked hard to create a career around helping others find that same acceptance and peace that I felt when I finally felt understood by someone; my therapist. My approach will always be at your pace, in your time, and with your goals in mind. I am ready to support you as you learn about yourself, be there with you as you feel your feelings, and help you find your way to yourself again.

Dr. Patricia Maul-Jones, LPC
Therapist

Loving life and living out loud is what I ascribe to do. I was born in St. Louis, MO but spent most of my adult life in the San Francisco, Bay Area of California. In my free time I enjoy dancing and acting and I am usually performing with a dance group or in a play at any given time.  I also love to travel and I have touched 6 of the 7 continents including living in Liberia, West Africa for 4 ½ years.  Needless to say, I have seen a lot and experienced a lot and I bring that wealth of wisdom into my therapy of empowerment.  I am also an open-minded believer in God with a heavy background in Biblical studies. I have a way of transforming your difficult/complex situations into simple, resolvable solutions.  I am a calm, loving, funny, insightful therapist.  Our sessions will feel like a warm embrace that will leave both of us feeling reformed, inspired and enlighten.

Calvin Bartelle, LMSW
Therapist

Hi, I’m Calvin! I am a Richmond, Virginia native and recently relocated to the Atlanta metro area. In my free time I enjoy exploring the city, traveling, urban modeling, and being around friends and family. I am a dog dad, an avid learner, and a fashion junkie. My approach can be described as interactive, conversational, and personable. At the same time, my approach is rooted in science and intended to assist you in reaching your goals using various evidence-based techniques and creative methods. As a black queer person, I understand the difficulty in finding spaces that feel authentic and safe. Through navigating these identities, I learned to be intentional in creating safe spaces that are comfortable and reassuring. Processing emotions can feel daunting, so I am caring and compassionate throughout the therapeutic journey. Our sessions will feel warm and genuine, as I have a way of naturally blending deep emotional work with fun and humor. My goal is to join you as you take back your life, challenge negative thoughts, uncover your potentials, and define what it means to be you! So, I want to invite you on a collaborative therapeutic experience to help free yourself from the weight of past traumas, stress, and negative emotions and empower you to reach a place where you deserve to be. Anything can be done if you are trusting of the process.

Tasha Fortenberry, LMSW
Therapist

Hello, I am Tasha, a California native who has traversed back through the southern states of Louisiana and Georgia where I have gained purpose and humbled development of character. With over 20 years of experience in the profession of Social Work, my first job as a Head Start Social Worker helped to lay the foundation in understanding early childhood development and family systems of care. Over the course of my career I have worked with populations from children, adolescents, adults, grandparents, parents, couples and kinship care relatives who all seek to achieve their greatest potentials - whether for their individual needs or for the needs of the family. My therapeutic approaches to therapy include system theories, psychodynamic, family theories, motivational theories, and CBT. I also believe in the use of Spiritual Social Work to explore how one's spiritual beliefs influence thoughts, beliefs and habits that are outside of the normative religious/spiritual belief system(s). With an undergraduate degree in Sociology, I also take into consideration about culture and its influence on how it shapes thoughts, behaviors, relationships and social interactions. Cultural Sensitivity and Cultural Humility are the hallmarks that I use to navigate my profession in building rapport with clients who are of similar and/or different backgrounds where I always ask for permission to explore the connections to the progress and/or barriers towards their ability to self-actualize their greatest potential. My assessment practices entails the use of: Intergenerational Transmission of values, morals, beliefs; Intergenerational Trauma; African American Family dynamics and parenting styles; Family; Gender Hierarchies; Intimacy standards; practices; Parenting Styles; Systemic supports (i.e. family, communal, educational, peer/friendship/acquaintances); and general biopsycho-spiritual assessments to help tailor a person- centered treatment plan. The integration of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs in the therapeutic process is also one of the motivational theories that I like to use as a reference. I believe that some of the ways to create a harmonious therapeutic relationship is to always acknowledge when some content may be difficult, uncomfortable, easy, or realistic. Respect, empathy, compassion, integrity, optimism, humor and honesty are a few of the traits that many of my clients express appreciation for in my therapeutic delivery of services. I support the free-will of my clients in the monitoring of psychotropic medicines, legal homeopathic medicines and/or specialized dietary habits that will enhance their holistic level of functioning.

Kares Clarke, LMSW
Therapist/Clinical Team Lead

Hello, I’m Kares. I’m originally from Dayton, OH. My educational background includes a Bachelor of Social Work from the University of Cincinnati and a Masters of Social Work (mental health clinical track) from Kennesaw State University. In my spare time, I love to travel, try DIY home projects, and read. I specialize in depression, anxiety, fears around abandonment or attachment troubles. My therapeutic style is integrated and wholistic. While I am an eclectic style (which she tailors based on the client’s needs), I lean towards a humanistic behavioral approach. I believe that behavior is something that was learned over time that can also be unlearned. This could be explored through attachment -informed psychotherapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy and more. I believe that people have the power to heal, the power to change, and the power to create a happy life. I strive to create a safe environment where the client feels secure exploring their thoughts and feelings.
