It is my pleasure to help clients in their healing journeys. I have an Associate License in counseling years of experience treating couples and families affected by various Mental Health Diagnoses. Furthermore,I have a passion to make a difference in my profession as I am a Ph.D. Candidate for Counselor Education and Supervision. My mission is to motivate and inspire clients to eradicate fear and live in freedom. I believe that building a therapeutic rapport with clients is essential to their healing process. I consider all my clients to be the experts of their lives and encourage them to stand firm in their power.

I am also committed to helping my clients develop balance during transitions. As we earn more opportunities in life, we often face imposter syndrome and feel inadequate to achieve in our new life role. These transitions may include obtaining a new job, moving to another state, ending or starting a relationship, getting married, and parenthood. Importantly, I have training in Perinatal Mental Health to counsel mothers and families in dealing with the challenges of welcoming a new baby.

I use a Person-Centered therapeutic approach in guiding my clients in leading fulfilling lives. Additionally, I am trained in EMDR treatment, which allows clients to heal from trauma through bilateral stimulation. I often give my clients homework to ensure they continue the healing process and take care of themselves outside of the session. I specialize in providing treatment for individuals with PTSD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Depression, low self-esteem, and Adjustment disorders. My interest area is women who have been affected by sexual assault, miscarriage, and grief. As a therapist, I strive to be a catalyst for healing in difficult life experiences that alter a person’s sense of trust in the world.

Jessica Tiwari

Therapist

Jessica Tiwari (she/her) is a Certified Rehabilitation Counselor and Nationally Certified Counselor.  Her  experience working with people with disabilities has shown her the impact that our physical condition often has on our mental well being, social life, career and relationships. Jessica decided to begin working with women experiencing fertility, perinatal, and postpartum issues after realizing the lack of services and resources available to many women in these situations. She is passionate about making these resources more readily available to those that need them.

 

Jessica’s approach to counseling is a collaborative effort between her client and herself to work towards goals that align with the client’s values, beliefs and aspirations. She utilizes mindfulness based cognitive therapy to help her clients work towards goals while teaching techniques and coping mechanisms to relieve the client’s current symptoms and help the client process past trauma. She received her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Emory University and her Master’s in Clinical Rehabilitation Counseling from Georgia State University. She is currently taking courses to become certified in perinatal mental health to better serve the community.

Paige Dee

Therapist

Hi! I am Paige Dee (she/her). I believe every person deserves to live a life they find meaningful. However, a reality for many of us is that sometimes, living is tough, and meaningful wouldn’t be one’s word of choice to explain their life. Thankfully, significant benefits can come from being therapeutically supported while facing challenges and uncertainties.

Therefore, I approach treatment eclectically to support my clients and draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy orientations, including Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, and Dialectic Behavior Therapy. In addition, I draw from Intersectional Feminist, Person-Centered, Strength-Based, and Solution-Focused orientations.

This means that I am a therapist whose work focuses on the primary intersections of self-efficacy, social justice, and mindfulness. And I strive to help my clients positively adjust their faulty or irrational thoughts, behaviors, and emotional reactions to encourage effective changes and acceptance of themselves and living situations. When necessary, I work with clients to uncover how early-life experiences may affect them and how to improve held thoughts and feelings about these experiences. I enjoy helping my clients become increasingly more understanding of their current life situations by talking about what is going on and helping them recognize personal and new strengths and how to apply learned therapeutic skills to daily living.

I feel that empowering clients to be progressively more mindful and radically accepting of their present life is key to them uncovering paths towards a present and future they find meaningful. I am an Army Veteran who enjoys supporting fellow veterans and their families. I especially enjoy helping clients overcome anxiety disorders (i.e., OCD, PTSD, panic, phobias, and generalized anxiety, to name a few). I also have an enthusiastic joy for environmental sustainability and helping others feasibly accomplish their sustainability goals in ways that are not overwhelming. Also, through my years of educational studies, counseling experiences, and being a mother myself, I have developed a unique passion for working with perinatal persons, including their partners, from all walks of life.

I received my Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies with concentrations in Sociology and Psychology from Texas A&M Central Texas. And I received my Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adams State University. Currently, I am a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor (LAPC) and am working towards becoming an independent Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).

Lastly and most importantly, I look forward to supporting clients, just like you, by providing respect and empowerment that is deserved as they move through struggles and achievements of daily life and endeavor towards living a life meaningful to them!

Regine Henderson

Therapist

I know firsthand what it feels like to show up for myself, even when I don’t feel it. As a Black woman, I understand how hard it is to live authentically in a society that makes you feel like you aren’t enough. I’ve come to remind you that you are. Much like in my everyday life, I provide a non-judgemental approach to therapy; creating a safer space for you to be your whole self, unapologetically. I believe that everyone, regardless of background, family history or identity, deserves acceptance, love and peace of mind. My ideal client is someone who lives at the intersection of multiple minority groups, and I specialize in issues specific to Black Queer folx & women of color. I provide services that are culturally sensitive in order to create an atmosphere of acceptance specific to the individual needs of every client. I have experience in helping individuals cope with stress, anxiety, depression, life transitions, issues related to body image/self-esteem and the impact of organized religion (to name a few). 

My approach is person-centered; with the goal of decolonizing therapy while also creating a space that’s affirming of all sexualities & genders. I recognize that human beings are not one dimensional & that we all have our own unique path to healing. My practice is grounded in holistic wellness & I find joy in helping others focus on their strengths and grow into the person they want to be. I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples & have used it in my practice with relationships of all styles. My passion for maternal mental health has fueled me in my journey as a birth worker & my aim is to help lower the maternal mortality rate that disproportionately affects Black & Brown folx, through mental, emotional & physical support.

Lactation Educator and Certified Holistic Birth Doula under The Matrona, Taleah received birth doula training through DONA International and The Matrona. Additionally, Taleah is a trained ballerina, former rhythmic gymnast, and Barre instructor. Birth work is her calling, body work is her ministry.

Allow Taleah to help you through this process.

Now Offering at Push Thru:

Doula Services: Depending on your due date and when you book doula services, we will have up to 3 prenatal in person or virtual consultations. In the prenatal sessions, we will discuss current health history, create a birth plan, discuss nutrition and exercise. We will review comfort measures, labor preparation, what to pack in your bag, and postpartum care planning.

Starting 38 weeks, I will be on-call for you, leading up to your birth. Once you are in labor, we will stay in communication via phone/text to determine the best time to meet up with you. I’ll meet you at your home or birthing facility once you are in active labor.

Childbirth Education Services: You are having a baby, now what? Join me for 2-4hr comprehensive childbirth class. Learn the stages of labor, comfort measures, labor and birth positions, advocating for yourself with your medical provider, pain management options and induction methods, newborn procedures, and postpartum care.

Lactation Consultation: Breastfeeding is natural but doesn’t come natural for many, and that’s okay! Whether you require individualized support, or enjoy a group environment, lactation education focuses on benefits of breastfeeding, latch support and positioning, natural remedies to aid in milk supply, and more. Partners are encouraged and welcomed to join!

Janese Jones

Therapy Intern

My name is Janese Jones (she/her) and I’ve just started working as an intern at Push Thru Therapy. I am a graduating senior at Clark Atlanta University majoring in social work. I became interested in mental health because I believe that it is my purpose to assist individuals who are in need. In my family, we were always taught to hide our emotions or wipe them off our backs, so I felt as though I had to be strong. I understand how it feels to be afraid to ask for help because doing so will make you feel weak. However, the message I want to convey is that it’s acceptable to experience sadness and that seeking assistance when you feel you need it is also acceptable. After graduation in May, I intend to continue my studies to earn a master’s degree or to pursue other internships to gain more experience in the area.
