Welcome to our Atlanta counseling practice!

Everyone else thinks you’ve got it all together. Inside, though, you feel like you have to fill a role to fit in your own life. You have to be perfect, maybe rehearse what you’ll say ahead of time, and then tell yourself that no one cares about you since they can’t get close enough to know the real you. You know how to appear confident but deep inside, there is this voice telling you that no one sees you. You crave the feelings of safety and acceptance. You want to feel connected to the people you love. Instead, you feel desperate to maintain control and feel stuck in painful relationships.

You are finally ready to work through barriers that stand between you and whole-hearted living, shed the weight of your past, and fall in love with your life, family, and yourself. You’re ready to give up feeling guilty for taking care of yourself and invest the time to transform the way you think about yourself.

Let’s get started taking care of you and making the change you have set your mind to. It takes courage to reach out for support and imagine something better for yourself.

Pamela Madsen, MS, LPC, NCC, RYT-200 (she, her)

I work with high-achieving adults, teens, and couples. My clients tend to be pretty hard on themselves, worry about things both large and small, and feel best when they are in the driver’s seat of life. Life has many ebbs and flows, so at times we need some additional support to get through the uncertainty that life hands us. I collaborate with my clients to identify and achieve their goals, build greater connections in relationships, and experience satisfaction in their lives.
