About Me

Teens experience stress from so many different areas of life. It can be overwhelming trying to offer them support. If your teen is withdrawing, having difficulties at school or social settings, or coping with trauma, I would like to offer my support. When teens experience abuse, stress, anxiety, depression, low-self esteem, or trauma they may begin to act out or have a drastic behavior change.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia. I have more than 8 years of Psychotherapy experience. I have worked with ages 8- adult. My experience ranges from working with a wide range of matters such as: ADHD, Depression, Stress management, Low Self-Esteem, Anxiety, and social related issues, trauma, and grief to name a few.

My Counseling style is nurturing, caring, warm, but direct. I believe that labels sometimes put unnecessary stigmas on people. My counseling style combines Cognitive- Behavioral Therapy and a Person Centered approach. I use Mindfulness techniques to assist people with developing healthy ways to cope with current and future stress. I personalize treatment to meet each teens specific needs. I am here to assist and support teens in whatever area they need support. I use technology and other interest of teens to connect with them on a level that feels safe and comfortable for them. I understand that it can be overwhelming picking the right therapist. I am excited and honored you picked me to support you on this journey. I look forward to being your source of support.

I had a lot of hard stuff going on, and Latasha helped me through a lot of it! I felt so much more empowered and capable after a lot of our phone sessions. She's an incredible listener and I'm so thankful!

LaTasha has been wonderful! She listens and allows me to fully express what I’m dealing with. I would highly recommend her to anyone I know in need of therapy.

Latasha does a great job in understanding me. Sometimes in our sessions, I almost forget that I’m talking to my therapist cause everything is so natural. Would definitely recommend her to anyone.

Written by R.U. on Oct 07, 2021 after therapy with Latasha for 5 months on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and compassion fatigue

Latasha has empowered me in so many ways! She’s made me feel validated by validating my feelings and emotions. She has listened to me speak of my anxieties and reminded me to focus on what I can control as opposed to the factors I can’t. She’s helped me cope with my stress through using varying stress managing techniques. Some worked- some did not but she assisted me until I found one that worked for me. She has helped me with setting boundaries, learning how to say no, with feelings of guilt, coping with depression, etc. I am so thankful!

Ms. Johnson has been a tremendous help during a difficult time. She was professional, considerate, compassionate and a great teacher of all we discussed. Every session she would reinforce all ways for me to be successful outside of our sessions without making me feel overwhelmed. Truly grateful for her help.

This is a tough journey for me, and Dr. Johnson has been extremely helpful in helping me navigate it. She has calmed me down when my anxiety was through the roof and has given me activities to work on in between sessions.

Latasha is a wonderful therapist. Every conversation I have with her feels natural and she is an active listener. She is great at providing tools and resources to use, as well. When I originally began my sessions, I had really bad insomnia and anxiety. With her help, I learned how to manage my anxiety and I am now sleeping so much better. My life has improved because of her. She’s the best!
