Greetings, my name is Bettina J. Sellers. I have a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia, and I have been in private practice since 2018. Although my civilian counseling career began in 2015, my counseling experience began as a Non-commissioned Officer in the Air Force during my 20-year career.
I have unconditional positive regard for my clients, and I meet them where they are, as I give them helpful tools to navigate life’s changes and challenges. I work with teens dealing with a wide range of challenges such as anxiety, career planning, depression, life changes, sex trafficking, sexual abuse, and sexual identity to name a few.
I use an integrated theoretical approach to Psychotherapy, utilizing evidence-based treatment modalities such as the person-centered approach emphasizing the importance of the therapist/client relationship, Solution-Focused Brief Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I help my clients gain the necessary insight, to make positive changes that can lead to a more fulfilling life.
I like working with adolescents, because in this age of bullying, peer pressure, and social media they are often overexposed and inundated with too many outside influences, it can be a very confusing and scary time. I enjoy watching their growth from the first session until they are ready to use their new tools, fly on their own, and conquer the world. I have facilitated various teen groups to include anger management, grief and loss, sexual identity confusion, and sexual assault.
I also have experience in ADHD, Family conflicts, Parenting challenges, Self-esteem, Suicidal Ideation, as well as extensive multicultural competency training.

Bettina is compassionate yet firm. She truly can read a situation, get to the root of the problem, and provide guidance. We couldn’t be happier.
Very sweet and uplifting person! Always good at helping me talk through and sort stuff and at giving me the mental boost I need.
