Who am I?
My name is Mia Edwards, and I am located in Atlanta, GA. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology, and Master of Arts In Clinical Mental Health Counseling, from the Illustrious Clark Atlanta University. As a Licensed Therapist, my training is focused in the areas of Depression, Anxiety, Behavioral Issues, ADHD, Stress Related Disorders, Conduct Disorders, other Mood Disorders, and many more. My primary population ages are 3-35 and Senior Citizens ages 55+; with extensive training in working with young adulthood, and adulthood. Although I specialize in these age groups, I am one of the few African American Therapists in the Atlanta area, who work with children under the age of 6. I am passionate about teaching young children how to respect themselves, love themselves unconditionally, and enjoy encouraging them, by teaching that they are valued and needed in this world. When I am not being a super hero to our youth, I enjoy playing musical instruments, which brings me peace and balance. My literacy works are impactful in helping communities pursue the best possible outcomes for youth and adolescents. I maintain a unique balance of knowledge, skills, compassions, and tenacity. Understanding that it takes a village to raise a child, I have an organic nature to nurture the progression of youth development.I utilize empathy, art, music, and mindfulness activities in order to bring awareness, peace, balance, and relaxation; which brings my sessions to life, and makes my practice distinct from other therapists.. My therapeutic approaches include Person Centered (empathy and rapport building), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, and Play Therapy. The area of healing has always been a focus of mine, and with training in individual therapy, group therapy, sound healing, African Drum circles, healing circles and reiki, I have been able to help individuals that I have crossed paths with. My goal is to continue to influence, and help individuals which their fullest potential. I have so much to offer the world, and I just want to share it!
