Sometimes in the midst of struggle, it is hard to be hopeful. When it is hard, it is my privilege to hold that hope for you. I work with both men and women , as well as couples. I am passionate about working with couples through affair recovery and other difficult transitions. I am trained in the Gottman method and use this approach along with techniques from Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to help my couples reach their relationship goals. I also have a passion for working with trauma, grief and loss, addictions; and as a first-generation American, the complexities of a multi-cultural existence.

I offer particular welcome and safety to Black folks, People of Color, those in minority Religious traditions (Neo-pagan, Muslim, etc) immigrants, gender non-conforming folks, Women , and Queer people.
Real talk. We live in an overwhelming world and mid-pandemic many people are more tired, stressed-out and overwhelmed than ever. Can you relate? I am passionate about helping folks gain insight into their lives and their behavior so they feel more grounded instead of unmoored. If you're struggling with fear, stress, indecision, or grappling with a rough experience, I can help you develop the inner strength to get through it. I can empathize with where you're coming from, because I too have been through the wacky washing machine of life. Take a look at my website to see if you're interesting in working together.

I have a strong passion for helping women , adolescents, and families of color begin the healing process from past trauma and move toward wholeness and wellness.
“Helping one person might not change the world, but it could change the world for one person.” Does it look like you have it all together on the outside but on the inside your world is slowly falling apart? Are you making the same mistakes in relationships but unable to do something different? Constantly attempting perfectionism but your own needs are often unmet. Feeling stuck and lacking the confidence needed to make the right decisions to change? Struggling between choosing the life you have and the one you want?

If you are looking for a Black woman therapist to serve as a support and guide along your journey to healing, liberation, affirmation, and wellness, then I am the counselor for you.
You’re trying to navigate all of the transitions that come with being a teenager or young adult in the world. Maybe you feel overwhelmed and isolated as you try to do it all on your own. Transitions aren’t easy, whether you’re moving from one career to another, out of relationships that no longer serve you, or from college to graduate school. As hard as it can feel when you’re in the midst of it, these changes offer an opportunity for you to explore where you come from, who you are, and who you want to be.

I am a licensed psychologist with 20+ yrs of experience. My practice focuses on working with women at major transition points in their lives. I believe we come into this world with unique gifts that provide a framework for who we are. That framework is further shaped - in both healthy & painful ways - by life experiences with family, peers, loved ones, work, identity, & society. Psychotherapy offers the opportunity to understand how we've come to be the person we are today, make peace with the past, recognize our unique gifts, and move into the future with a clearer vision of the life we want to create and how to get there.

Note: I am immediately available for scheduling appointments Hi! My name is Dr. Lana Holmes. I am a licensed clinical psychologist based in the metro Atlanta area. But more than that, I am a Black, bisexual, woman ; a nerd; an Air Force brat; and a punk rocker at heart. I know that those of us who are marginalized and oppressed bear particular kinds of suffering that can be difficult to describe and understand, if you haven’t faced it. That’s why I connect my lived experiences with years of clinical education, training, and work; for a deeper and more authentic style of therapy.

I work with women , parents, and emerging adults (age 15+) using evidence-based practices to treat anxiety, OCD, depression, HSP, overwhelm, chronic pain, and insomnia.
Do you (or your child) feel stuck in anxiety, depression, overwhelm or lack of motivation? Or maybe you're struggling with chronic pain, suicidal ideation, rage, or generally feeling that life is out of control? Your brain and body are always in service to your survival, so when life becomes too much, you can get stuck in survival mode and unable to function optimally. How would your life change if you could discover the underlying strengths of those wild and sensitive parts of yourself, and the supports you need to get unstuck?

Are you stuck and needing to process childhood trauma? Is your child sad, anxious or angry, and you know they need help? Do you feel like no one understands the challenges of creating a family (infertility, perinatal loss, miscarriage, IVF, adoption)? I shifted careers into mental health counseling in 2016 after 20 years of community advocacy to address injustice and empower women , children, and communities. I am a healing-centered, trauma-focused therapist now because I believe you - and your family - deserve guidance and support to reimagine and re-author your life narrative.

To navigate between locations within the same country, enter a new city or zip code into the search bar.

Learn more about how to find a therapist.

Is online therapy a good option?

Therapy conducted online or over the phone can be just as effective as in-person therapy, as long as there is a strong alliance between the client and the therapist. To find a therapist who provides telehealth services to clients in your area, click “Online Therapy” on the directory homepage and search by your city or town or your zip code.

What’s the difference between a psychologist, a therapist, and a counselor?

Therapists, psychologists, and counselors are all licensed mental health professionals. In the United States, psychologists have earned a doctoral degree. The terms “therapist” and “counselor” are used somewhat interchangeably, but generally therapists offer longer-term, mental health care, while counselors offer shorter-term care that may focus on one domain, such as marriage, career, or academic challenges.

What type of therapist is right for me?

Clients should consider factors such as insurance coverage and their primary reason(s) for seeking therapy to determine the type of professional best suited to their needs. Someone struggling with mental health challenges such as depression or anxiety, for example, may wish to seek out a clinical psychologist, psychologist or therapist, while someone navigating career obstacles or marital upheaval may benefit from seeing a counselor who can offer short-term, targeted support.

Is everyone in the Psychology Today Therapy Directory a licensed therapist?

The Psychology Today directory lists providers who offer legitimate mental health services to the public, including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, and counselors. Many have been licensed by the country or state where they practice; providers whose license or primary credential has been verified by Psychology Today are signified by a “Verified” symbol. Some clinicians or organizations provide services for which their state or country does not offer licenses, such as pastoral counseling. They may be selectively included without the “Verified” seal.

What type of therapy is right for me?

The type of therapy best suited to a particular individual depends on several factors, including their primary reason for seeking therapy, their preferred timeline (some therapy types last for a set number of sessions, while others are open-ended), and their personality and preferences—some may prefer a more structured approach. For many individuals, multiple types of therapy could provide a good fit.

Is online therapy cheaper than in-person therapy?

Many therapists charge the same amount for online therapy as they do for in-person therapy—though clients may still find this cost-effective if it cuts down on their transportation costs. Health insurance plans often offer equivalent coverage for online and in-person therapy; indeed, in many places, they are legally required to do so. Text-based or on-demand therapy apps may be cheaper than traditional one-on-one psychotherapy; however, the practice may be less effective and is not likely to be covered by insurance.
