About me

Welcome! Thank you for stopping by!

If you are struggling with all things ANXIETY- overthinking, negative thoughts, feeling stuck, unmotivated, having difficulty in your career, pain, want to get ahead but you just can't, have anxiety attacks or difficulty with your children and parenting, depression, struggling in your career and your purpose? Read on... I may be a great fit to work with you!

I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Georgia. I received my bachelor’s in Social Work from NC Central University in Durham, NC (Eagle Pride!) and my master’s in Direct Practice Social Work from SUNY Albany in Albany, NY.

I am a motivational therapist and believe nothing will change unless you do! I believe in the law of attraction and manifesting anything we want in our lives. It all begins with our thoughts. I am passionate about helping change our thoughts from defeat to being empowered.

Although I enjoy working with all populations, I have a tender heart for clients affectionally known as “Mom!” I recently authored the books: “15 Minute Journal Prompts for the Postpartum Mom”, “Mindful Mandalas for Moms" and "Her Path to PEACE." I have experience working with children, military servicemen/women, couples and young adults.

I am a knowledgeable, warm and goal-oriented therapist. I use a variety of treatment modalities depending on your needs. I primarily focus on:
Solution-Focused Brief Therapy
Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Acceptance and Commitment Focused Therapy

I’m happy to refer individuals diagnosed with bipolar disorder, borderline PD, schizophrenia, eating disorders or substance abuse disorders to one of my colleagues.

I meet you exactly where you are with 0 judgement. I'd love to help you move from feeling anxious, confused, depressed or “stuck” to gaining clarity, feeling hopeful, happy and “unstuck”!

Let's make the world your oyster! It would be my pleasure to work with you.

Akemi McGoogan, MSW, LCSW
