You are likely here because you want relief, growth, or lasting change. Wanting more for yourself is adaptive. Seeking help is difficult but healthy. As a psychologist, my mission is to help you envision where you want to go and to collaborate with you to craft it into a reality.

Actualization looks unique to each individual. Some of the growth and change that I commonly help people with include: decreasing or resolving symptoms, shedding unhelpful ways of coping and developing healthy coping skills, working through past traumas in order to live with purpose and peace in the present, letting go of self-destructive and repetitive patterns, developing healthier interpersonal relationships, gaining insight into limitations and strengths, becoming unstuck, as well as enhancing performance at work and school. Please read my Services page to learn more about the psychotherapy and executive coaching services I provide.

In my practice, all healing and change occur within a collaborative and respectful relationship that is embedded in genuine compassion, nonjudgement, and shared power. Part of what makes my work effective is my ability to connect with clients. I do this by bringing my authentic self into our work, remaining curious, and staying attuned to whomever I am sitting with. I work from a place of deep value and respect for all bodies and identities. With thought and intentionality, I integrate various techniques into our relational space based on what you need, your preferences, as well as current research and literature. Please read my About page to learn more about my approach.

About Dr. AnneMarie Jeffries

I am a licensed psychologist in private practice in Atlanta. I have experience working with people with a broad range of concerns. I honor differences and have worked with people whose backgrounds and contexts reflect diversity in its many forms.

My therapeutic work is grounded in an interpersonal approach and is highly integrative. This means that I regard relationships as fundamental to our experiences as people. Similarly, I hold deep respect for the therapeutic relationship and view it as paramount to the therapeutic process. When I sit with you, I bring my authentic self into the room along with genuine compassion, warmth, and nonjudgment. People who work with me feel safe, understood, respected, and empowered in our relationship. This space is necessary for change and often is the core avenue for healing.

I am attentive to the unique needs of each person I sit with and am flexible, creative, and collaborative in my treatment approach. While my work is grounded in an interpersonal approach, I consistently integrate various therapeutic approaches based on a person’s needs, preferences, context, as well as the literature on what is effective. Humanistic, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), and Experiential Therapy are some of the therapeutic approaches I draw from to enhance my work.

It is important that my work is effective for you. I collaborate with my clients to develop shared goals and maintain an ongoing dialogue that is welcoming of feedback and involves assessing our progress as we go.
