Welcome!

I respect that you may be pursuing therapy for any number of reasons. You might be in pain or unhappy and want to feel better. Or maybe you’re feeling stuck and would like help getting “unstuck.” Perhaps, you need help navigating life transitions or developing a deeper understanding of yourself. Whatever the reason, wanting more for yourself is adaptive. Seeking help is healthy. Therapy can provide relief and facilitate healing, growth, and lasting change. By reaching out for support, you are bringing yourself closer to the relief and change that you desire.

I hope that my website provides you with information about my therapy practice that helps you get a sense of whether I am a good fit for you at this time.

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.
