WELCOME TO OUR PRACTICE
Intown Counseling & Wellness is a private counseling practice dedicated to holistic and balanced living. We provide therapeutic services that are tailored to meet your unique needs with the belief that everyone can lead a more fulfilling and mindful life. Through personalized guidance and interventions we strive to help people achieve success in their everyday lives. We each possess the ability to better regulate our emotions, manage our relationships, deal with pain and anxiety, quiet our ego and build lives that brim with purpose and meaning. We can learn to see our thoughts and emotions for what they are. We can learn to distance ourselves from them and view them from an unbiased perspective. With the help of a counselor, you can gain insight into your feelings and thoughts and learn practical ways to overcome ineffective responses and negative patterns. Therapy can provide you with support while helping you lift out of confusion and distraction towards clarity, meaning and direction. A way towards detachment, rediscovery, purpose, focus, discipline and free of ego, anxiety, anger, bitterness and baggage.
During therapy you will learn about mindfulness, which has to do with the quality of awareness that a person brings to everyday living; learning to control your mind, rather than allowing your mind control you. Mindfulness practice is the means of familiarizing oneself with awareness itself. The recognition of an innate, ever-present awareness is the foundation of positive mental health – psychological and emotional resilience and an overarching sense of wellbeing that can be effectively cultivated and relied upon. While learning to focus on the present moment, you’ll simultaneously work on your ability to control your attention. Few things affect our lives more than our faculty of attention. If we can’t focus our attention—due to either agitation or dullness—we can’t do anything well. You will also learn and gain insights to help you overcome mood disturbances including distress tolerance skills and emotional regulation skills.
Visit us at our beautiful offices located in the Morningside neighborhood or schedule a session at a time that’s convenient for you using your phone, tablet, or computer. Our physical office is conveniently located between the intown neighborhoods of Virginia Highlands, Druid Hills, Emory Village and Decatur. We are also easily accessible from Midtown and Buckhead. Our location offers a huge range of amenities, including access to several nature trails, picnic spots, Nickel Bottom Garden, South Fork Peachtree Creek and varied ecosystems within the 12 acres of Zonolite Park! Come a little early or instead of driving home immediately after your session, enjoy an up-close view of nature nestled within our busy city. Soak in the healing combination of professional support, nature, fresh air, sunlight and quiet before you get back to your busy day! On the other hand, you can’t beat the convenience of teletherapy. Using either our online platform or telephone, you can visit with your counselor from the comfort of your office, your car, your bedroom, your garage or wherever you feel most at ease or find most convenient. Whatever you chose, we are committed to providing a safe space for you. At Intown Counseling & Wellness, you’re free to be yourself and communicate your concerns in a supportive and nurturing environment.
While we have long hours available for therapy services, we process appointment inquiries Monday – Friday between 10 a.m.- 6 p.m. One of our staff members will do a brief telephone intake with you and match you with one of our therapists. Our staff consists of a diverse team of highly trained and specialized clinicians, each possessing a wide range of expertise and experience. We strive to schedule you with the best and most appropriate mental health professional based on your presenting concerns as well as any preferences you may have. If there is a particular therapist you would like to work with, please mention his or her name when you call.
