I am a licensed clinical social worker in Georgia and Florida. I believe that each person is the expert of their life, and I strive to meet each person where they are with no judgement and no preconceived ideas. Counseling is not about labeling problems. instead, it is about finding solutions and coping mechanisms. I work with children, teens, adults, couples, and families presented with a variety of issues, with a passion for geriatric mental health. The decision to begin therapy can be life changing and takes great courage, and I will be here to help you every step of the way.
I am passionate about my work and abilities to help others reach their full potential. My areas of specialization include treatment for grief, depression, life stressors, divorce, blended families, and individuals and families associated with state agencies.
I believe the therapeutic process is sacred. Therefore, I create an atmosphere that is accepting and understanding. This allows for optimal healing and growth to occur. My approach is holistic, eclectic, and tailored to my client(s) needs. I want to make sure each client I encounter is cared for holistically, spiritually and emotionally.

Meta is simply amazing!!! We love her!!
After our first session, I immediately picked up the phone and spoke to my bestie about this revelation I had gotten in my session. It has changed my entire perspective and life. I don’t even know if Meta is aware of the impact that revelation has had on my life. She listens and is welcoming to answering all of my questions, allowing me to explore different emotions and concerns during our time together. I always hang up rushing to her schedule to get my next session in. I was very apprehensive if my first therapist match would be “the one”. Lucky for me, my first therapist match was one made in heaven! The world needs more Metas! But in the meantime, I hope that those who have access to her , value what she has to offer!
Meta Petty is such a gem! She is a great listener and I appreciate her being down to earth and empathetic to my journey.
She is great! She listens and understands.
My experience with Meta thus far has been very real, and raw when she needs to be. All the while being an ear for the venting and wise to gain understanding. I look forward to more sessions with her.
Imagine, if you will, shaking a coke bottle. If you spin the top all the way off, coke will erupt everywhere. Much like this, I felt like I was able to spew years of Information in a short time. However, Meta didn’t actually spin the top all the way off. She simply gave it a turn or two to release the pressure. This is how I can sum up my first session with Meta and today I am hopeful for the next 7 days, grateful for the last hour, and thankful for Meta and her ability to listen, empathize and advise me.
