MIRANDA CAMPBELL, MSM, MSW, LCSW (She,Her) is a therapist and founder of PORT Counseling, specializing in individual, couples and family therapy, and maintains a private practice in Atlanta, Georgia.
My aim as your therapist is to help you approach problems effectively so that you and your relationships flourish. Through a collaborative therapy experience, I will empower to you define your own definition of success, and help you get there. You will have the chance to gain insight on unhelpful thoughts and behaviors that lead to distress, and how to use traits you already have to interrupt those patterns.
The techniques I use most often in my practice include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral skills, Acceptance & Commitment Therapy, Online Therapy, and Behavior Modification skills training for parents.
WHO ARE MIRANDA’S CLIENTS?
I work with a wide range of emotional and behavioral concerns providing services that span from therapy for depression and stress management to parenting support, couples counseling and beyond. In a comfortable and supportive atmosphere, I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each of my clients individual needs to help attain the personal growth they’re striving for.
My clients often present with concerns pertaining to:
Living a life they did not envision for themselves
Wanting a new way to exist within their relationships
Feeling unheard and/or underestimated
Constantly beating themselves up
Feeling as if they are not a “good enough” ________________ within their family, interpersonal, and professional relationships
Experiencing a dip in their mood which has led to isolation and not having the drive to do the things they once had before
Difficulties with letting go of unwanted and unhelpful thoughts about themselves and others
WHY MIRANDA WORK’S IN THIS FIELD Before I even knew what a Social Worker was, I’ve been passionate about working to reduce the stigma of mental health. Over the years, I have found myself happiest serving in environments that reduce barriers to care for marginalized populations with mental health conditions. My work with people who live with eating disorders, mood disorders, and psychosis, has opened my eyes to the need for specialized resources and care. I truly believe that my work as a Clinical Social Worker is bigger than me and I am dedicated to supporting individuals and their families that would not otherwise sought services.
EDNA ABNEY, LAMFT, RYT is a therapist and certified yoga instructor, specializing in individual, couples and family therapy, using holistic approaches to help clients tap into their existing inner strengths.
EDNA’S APPROACH: My passion is helping clients find balance and grounding in the midst of challenges and confusion. My clients are overwhelmed with everyday life and sometimes find it difficult to navigate through the obstacles life presents. I invite clients to explore the conflict both, within themselves and their relationships. If you’re looking to improve your life, including work, hobbies, and close connections, I would like to extend support toward building a new path. Allow yourself to be mindfully present, with confidence, compassion, and fulfillment in your daily life.
My approach to therapy is a person-centered, holistic view in which I combine traditional therapy techniques with integrative approaches including mindfulness, meditation, and yoga. I aim to provide a safe person-centered space where my clients feel comfortable and uninhibited.
I find the opportunity to learn about my clients truly an honor, and working with them in reaching their goals a privilege. The gift of therapy is being able to see the challenges in the context in which they occur. Any concerns you bring to therapy, we will work through directly and collaboratively.
MORE ABOUT OUR PRACTICE
The practice space is a calm, and nurturing environment, that helps you silence the noise from the day-to-day stressors. Beyond the physical environment, We prioritize our belief in an inclusive treatment environment that is affirming to all genders, spiritual beliefs, and backgrounds. Our biggest tool within the relationship, is the use of ourself. If we do not present our authentic selves, how will the individuals we serve feel safe to do so. As a result, it is not unordinary for us to share laughter as well as tears.
OUR ADVICE TO POTENTIAL CLIENTS
Our advice for someone contemplating treatment is to take one step at a time. Start with the consultation and go from there. Thinking steps ahead often serves to detract from the present moment and thwart efforts to get help.
WHAT TO EXPECT YOUR FIRST SESSION Your first session, in some ways, may be the easiest. Aside from meeting someone new and embarking on the beginning of the changes you would like to make, we will guide you most through this session. This first session or so is intended to be a rapport building and information gathering session. We will gather information about your mental health, physical, and family history. We will then discuss and collaborate to identify what you would like to accomplish through our time together. And finally, we will work to make sure you leave with a strategy or tool to hold you over til our next session.
