OFFERING TELEHEALTH APPOINTMENTS ANYWHERE IN GEORGIA AND IN PERSON APPOINTMENTS IN STOCKBRIDGE

Welcome to Tiny Planet Counseling! We’re glad to have you! My names is Tahja Barnes, and I am a therapy intern here at Tiny Planet Counseling. I received my bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Human Services from Clayton State University. I’m currently pursuing my master’s degree in Clinical/Counseling Psychology from Clayton State University. My ideal clients are kids, teens, young adults, young women, and minority populations with concerns ranging from stress, anxiety, depression, behavioral problems, and neurodevelopmental disorders. The goal is to help clients understand what they’re experiencing and feeling, as well as learning how to cope. Clients want to work towards improving their mental health in order to live a more fulfilled life. I can help you achieve your therapeutic goals by assessing the presenting problem, offering a new perspective, while also focusing on your strengths and setting goals. I have experience working with elementary, middle, high school, and college students. My approach to therapy is integrative, primarily utilizing cognitive-behavioral and person-centered techniques. No one person is the same, so no therapy experience will be the same, which is why I work with you to assess the best way to help you achieve your therapeutic goals.

Making the decision to seek therapy is a big step and can be difficult at times, but you should be proud of yourself for walking this road, and doing what’s right for you. I aim to make every session a space where you feel safe and comfortable to open up and share your experiences with me. I look forward to working with you and supporting you on your journey to mental wellness.
