AMY ROBBINS LPC, Clinical Director 

Amy Robbins, an Atlanta-based LPC, CPCS and Certified EMDR therapy clinician, has been providing therapeutic services to Atlanta area children, teens, adults, couples and families since 1999.

I see adults for a variety of reasons including divorce, relationships, grief, depression, anxiety, adjustment to life changes, trauma, parenting and the list goes on.

I strive to create a safe and nurturing atmosphere in which individuals can be supported in their efforts to change and grow as well as become reconnected to their strengths and dreams.

I would describe myself as laid back, open, honest, loyal, challenging (but in a loving way) and strength-based. I can hold the space for you. I can hold the space for you to dive in deep and be able to come up for air. I can help you get to where you want to go.

Most clients leave our first session feeling heard, connected, empowered, grounded and hopeful.

I am certified in EMDR Therapy, a trauma based tool that provides fast results. Many clients seek me out for EMDR Therapy. You have my permission to Google it. I find it to be an incredible therapeutic technique and I love to incorporate it into therapy whenever we want to.

EMDR Therapy is an important part of my clinical world and trauma work is important to me. I am a Certified EMDR Therapist and have an interest in utilizing this technique when clinically appropriate. EMDR Therapy has been very helpful in areas such as trauma, grief and loss, self-esteem, anxiety, and when one “feels stuck.” You have my permission to google away about EMDR. Or for specific information on EMDR Therapy please refer to this website www.emdr.com or www.emdria.org.

I see couples for therapy as well and utilize the Gottman Method as well as EFT for Couples. I am very open and honest with each individual in the couples’ therapy process and seek to help each couple get to a stronger place in their relationship.

I love working with teenagers in therapy. I love taking them out of the office to get coffee or a snack and process all the things that challenge this age group. Don’t be surprised to find your teens doing a sandtray, therapeutic art activity or bibliotherapy in my room.

Outside of the office, I love to hike, camp, kayak, garden and get to the water (Honestly any water will do- beach, river, waterfalls, lake, etc.). I am married and my kiddo goes to Drew Charter School.

I see clients office in the office Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. I am virtual on Wednesdays and Fridays.

My counseling rate is $175 an hour. I do not accept insurance. I am happy to give you a statement to be reimbursed (or applied to your deductible) with your insurance. Lots of options. Feel free to reach out to me at 706-406-3404 or Amy@amyrobbinscounseling.com

LALAH MANLY, LAPC

Reaching out for therapy can be intimidating, but my clients say I am not. I am here to offer you a grounded, secure presence for the work you have come to do. I believe therapy is a chance to pause in the rush of life to explore what we think and feel from a still and quiet place. It can be an empowering tool for feeding personal growth, challenging barriers, and reigniting dreams.

We will explore your strengths, what is working, and what is getting in your way. Together we seek to hear your inner wisdom speak more and more distinctly. I believe the therapeutic relationship is one of the most important parts of therapy, so it may be helpful to know I am often described as quiet, gentle, accepting, curious, and focused on strength. My intention is to offer and be a safe space for you.

As a therapist, I seek to empower you to consider how you want to deal with the storms in your life. I provide support, transparency, and confrontation mixed with curiosity. I focus on being authentic to give you permission to do the same. I respect that you are the expert in living your life. My main goal is to empower and support you in your work.

My services are welcoming for all sexual orientations and identities, people of color, immigrants, people of all abilities, religious minorities, and people of all sizes. I have experience working with coming-of-age topics, anxiety and depression, shame, relationships, intimacy, LGBTQ+ concerns, and change in general. My approach is humanistic, developmental, and trauma-informed, with exposure to existential and Internal Family Systems approaches as well. I am also excited to offer Brainspotting with clients who are interested.

A lifelong introvert and lover of experiential learning, I draw inspiration for my work from time alone, creating, personal therapy, parenting, and failing and recovering to try again another day.

As an APC, Amy Robbins LPC is my clinical director and Celia Webb is my clinical supervisor.

I work with individual clients who are 18 and older.

Reach out to me at Lalah@amyrobbinscounseling.com or call me at 470-781-4589.

I see clients in office (if vaccinated) and virtually. You can choose the best modality for you, even if that’s a mix of the two.

My rates are $135 per hour, and I have a few sliding scale spots if needed. I am not on insurance panels but can offer you a superbill which you can submit to your insurance carrier for possible reimbursement.

I look forward to hearing from you.

BEN LAMM, MS, APC

My name is Ben Lamm and I am an Associate Professional Counselor. 

I see adults in their 20’s and 30’s. These years can set the stage for the rest of your life. Whether you’re looking to make a change, connect with yourself, deepen your relationships, overcome roadblocks, or find a sense of purpose, now is the time to invest in yourself. 

Everyone has a story to tell. I will help you examine yours. I approach each client with humility, compassion, and understanding. 

We will slow down and dig into your experience of life, bringing awareness to what is going on in the present moment and what you need to move forward. 

I believe true healing takes place in the context of connection, and more than any particular technique, my goal is to build a genuine and collaborative therapeutic relationship with you. 

From this solid foundation, we will uncover old patterns, consider new perspectives, explore new skills, and solidify your values. All with the goal of cultivating a life that is meaningful to you. You already have the inner resources to make this happen, I will guide you through the counseling process.

I have always been fascinated by the human experience. Before I became a counselor, I was an actor.  My own journey of growth centered around learning to connect with and express my emotions, particularly the ones I had spent a lifetime avoiding. 

I hold an undergraduate degree from the University of Georgia and a Master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Georgia State University. I have extensive training in Crisis Stabilization and inpatient psychiatric settings. Amy Robbins LPC is my primary clinical director and secondary clinical supervisor. 

I am currently available Monday evenings, Tuesday mornings, and Sunday afternoons. 

My rate is $135 an hour. I reserve some sliding scale spots based on income. I do not accept insurance, but I am happy to provide you with a statement for insurance reimbursement. 

My email is Ben@amyrobbinscounseling.com or you can schedule online below.


NATALIE CASEY, LPC-eligible

Natalie Casey is a laid back counselor who believes in providing a safe environment for her clients that is empathic, non-judgmental and culturally sensitive.

As a therapist, I strive to help my clients reach their goals through self-exploration. Among many things, I practice goal setting, mind/body connection and focus on the here-and-now with my clients. Although I believe in meeting my clients where they are, at times, I will push my clients to help them achieve a greater sense of self. My clients are always in the driver’s seat and I will be their passenger to help guide and redirect them when needed.

I am a Brainspotting trained therapist and work with adolescents, families, and adults to overcome issues related to trauma, substance use, and family separation. I work with adolescents and adults that experience anxiety, depression, disordered eating, and adjustment to life issues. Some of my clients are neurodivergent, exploring their identity, or struggle with obsessive thoughts and behaviors.

I also see clients that need a safe space to explore their thoughts and feelings and yearn to reach their goals. I thoroughly enjoy helping clients navigate life transitions and better understand themselves and their interpersonal relationships.

I am an LGBTQ+ ally and consider my therapy to be welcoming for people of color, immigrants, people of all abilities, religious minorities, and people of all sizes. I am committed to social justice and will help my clients address issues related to marginalization, and cultural and societal expectations.

One of the most amazing aspects of my therapy process is introducing clients to Brainspotting. Brainspotting is a neurobiological modality that allows clients to identify, process, and release sources of trauma that the client may be unaware is connected to their symptoms of anxiety, depression, chronic pain, obsessive thoughts, dissociation, and a variety of other symptoms. Please reach out if you would like to learn more about Brainspotting.

My commitment as a therapist is to walk alongside my clients during the therapeutic process and provide a safe environment for everyone to feel trusted and heard. I will help my clients find answers and support their healing and growth towards a positive future.

I am eligible for LPC in 2022.

I see clients virtually.

My rates are $135 an hour. Please note that I have a few limited sliding scale spots if needed.

Please reach out with any questions or to schedule an appointment- nataliecaseycounseling@gmail.com

JESSE SCHWEPPE

Jesse Schweppe is an Atlanta-based clinical intern therapist working with individuals and couples using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT), Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT) and Brainspotting.

I see clients age 18 and up.

I work with individuals who want to talk through problems, get unstuck or heal from specific traumas. Some of my clients need a safe space and a good listener with an open heart. Other clients want to grow or become more creative, calm or content.

Two modalities I use, EFIT and Brainspotting, can help clients feel better and move forward less encumbered. In addition to those modalities, I am faith-informed and can frame a change process from the point-of-view of Christian or Buddhist reality. I am a member of the Green Memorial AME Zion Church in Portland, Maine and spent a decade as a student at Tibet House, The Tibet Center and Asian Classics Institute in New York, New York. I also have experience with exile, extreme illness, adoption, trans-racial relationships and creativity problems.

I help couples in all stages of intimate relationships using Sue Johnson’s revolutionary Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. EFCT is the gold standard in couples therapy for one reason—the emotional work done in-session positively changes the brain and our future interactions. EFCT allows couples to understand the inner workings of their feelings and relationships while helping couples strengthen their emotional connections in real time. Any couple can benefit from this effective modality, from couples who feel slightly disconnected to couples who are highly distressed. EFCT understands that relationships are our greatest source of joy and power. We are more independent, stronger and happier when we feel securely connected.

Ninety percent of couples who complete the EFCT process report significant improvements in their relationships. These effects are lasting for the majority of couples. Such results are a big departure from earlier forms of couples therapy which tended to focus on skill building and strategies for rational bargaining. I love using EFT because it is a natural, potent process. At all times, I try to demonstrate kindness and understanding in my couples practice because I know relationships are hard. Humans are exquisitely vulnerable. Our fears are intense. But our relationships can protect us from all the slings and arrows and create a unique type of happiness.

I also work with clients experiencing chronic pain or health issues. This is a sensitive and often overlooked area in the mental health field and I am grateful to walk alongside you during this.

Born in Montclair, New Jersey and raised in Maine, I have lived in New York City, China and India. Prior to becoming a psychotherapist, I worked in academia, finance and media. Always curious about our thoughts and feelings and how they interact with our bodies and perceptions, I have lucked into great mentors and teachers in Asia and New York City who helped me better understand those interactions including Pattabhi Jois, Sermey Khensur Lobsang Tharchin, T. K. Nakagaki, and Faxiang Hou. Those experiences inform my clinical work.

I see clients on Mondays, Fridays and Sundays. This can be in-person or remote using our virtual program. If in person, clients will need to be vaccinated.

For individuals, sessions are 60 minutes long and the fee is $115.

For couples, sessions are 75 minutes long and the fee is $135. Couples will need 8-16 sessions to complete the three stages of EFT. When beginning EFT, assume we will need to meet weekly for 12 sessions.

I welcome clients of all dispositions, creeds and identities. My practice is LGBTQIA+ affirming because diversity is a blessing.

I attend weekly group supervision at University of Cumberlands, Master in Counseling program as well as individual supervision with Amy Robbins LPC, CPCS.

To schedule sessions, or a free consultation, just reach out. Telephone number, 212-271-9452. Email, jesse@amyrobbinscounseling.com.

I look forward to working with you.
