Empower Counseling – Complex Trauma and Anxiety – Atlanta Suwanee Gwinnett

We help struggling people trade anxiety for confidence.

Our clients struggle like you do. Despite being smart, funny, and hardworking, life is hard.

When they first come in, they feel frustrated that their relationships are one-sided. They try their best to take care of everyone around them, but they worry that maybe their best just isn't good enough?

Nights are often sleepless because they can't shut their minds off. Not only is there an infinitely long list of things to do, but their feelings of anxiety, stress, and sadness are overwhelming.

They feel numb and disconnected at work. Even when they stop to think about it for a minute, they can't even remember the last time they enjoyed their job.

Their guilty feelings about not being able to meet their own standards get in the way of the life they want in so many ways. They aren't the kind of partner they want to be. There is pretty much always the feeling that they suck at being a parent. And their confidence at work is practically non-existent.

Before they came to see us, they thought the solution was more of the same: to just work harder, smarter, and faster. They didn't feel like they had time to take care of themselves. And, if they stopped to think about it, they were worried that their problems were their own fault. They were miserable at the thought of being forever stuck in the pit of exhaustion and shame.

Like our clients, you deserve to take time to care for yourself.

Healthy relationships are not out of your reach.

If you want to be confident in who you are, we'd love to help you get there.

Call now. You don't have to figure it out alone. We can help.

How we approach Complex Trauma and Anxiety

Above all, we believe that counseling is not one-size-fits-all

We believe the work in therapy is done in the professional relationship created between client and therapist. Because of this, we know the fit between you and your therapist is incredibly important in the healing process. You deserve to work with a great therapist who really gets you!

On top of that, you deserve to work with a therapist who really gets what you're going through. While it's true that all therapists get training to treat a broad range of issues, no therapist can be an expert in everything. So, we don't try to treat everything.

We specialize in complicated cases where people feel stuck.  We often see the clients who have tried therapy before, but didn't feel like it worked well. Our clients often describe an overlapping and chaotic cluster of painful symptoms. By focusing on complex trauma and anxiety we're more able to effectively help our clients trade anxiety and stress for confidence and authenticity.
