I see psychotherapy as a collaborative process in which the client is able to learn more about her or his thought processes, emotional states, motivations and ineffective behavior patterns. I have been practicing for over 30 years, and so have experience and training in working with a wide variety of issues. I utilize multiple treatment modalities, dependent upon the client's needs and preferences, including talk therapy and some of the newer energy therapies.

Feeling overwhelmed? Anxious? Angry? Depressed? Lost? We all face struggles in our lives, and more often than not, it's easier to bear those struggles when we have someone to talk with, to help us hear ourselves and gain a better understanding and perspective than we were able to envision before. Whether you are a young adult seeking direction, a parent with anger issues impacting your family, a person trying to maintain addiction recovery, or a high achiever trying to alleviate anxiety, I see it as my role to help you identify your innate strengths and develop your self compassion in order to help you flourish.

With everything that is happening around us, it’s no surprise that one can begin to feel intense anxiety and have feelings of depression. As parents, it can become very overwhelming because of those ‘never ending’ expectations, and of course, questions on how does culture factor in our new normal. There’s a beautiful quote by Morgan Harper Nichols that I find pertinent in therapy re self-care “you are worth the quiet moments, you are worth the deeper breaths, you are worth the time it takes to slow down, be still and rest”.

Do you find yourself feeling anxious no matter what you do? Anxiety leaves us feeling stressed, fearful, and insecure. You may be fed up with constant negative thoughts, self-doubt or feeling overwhelmed with making decisions. You might not even remember a time that things didn’t feel this way. One thing is for sure: you’re ready for some relief. You’re ready to feel confident about yourself and your decisions. You’re ready to stop asking others for reassurance and begin trusting in yourself. Most of all, you’re ready to stop letting anxiety limit you from fully participating in your life.

Life often seems to move so quickly, barely allowing a chance to take in all that we have experienced. Especially in times of change or intense grief, you may want a space to process your experiences-both the mundane moments and major life-changing events-in order to understand what is going on inside. Therapy can be the perfect space to sort through your experiences, search for meaning and understanding, and discern the path forward that is right for you.

Hello! My name is Kishla Preston and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Georgia, Alabama and Florida. I have been practicing for the past 8 years and have loved every moment of it. I have had the heart to help other since the age of 10. So much so, that, in high school, I ended up taking custody of the 2-month-old child of a family friend until he was age 2, while his mother gained stability. That be said, I have a special place in my heart for child, young adults and mothers. My personal goal for every client I meet is to make their lives a little bit better than it was before we found one another.

If you or your teen are struggling with anxiety, depression or adapting to changes in life, psychotherapy can be very helpful. Slowing down and taking the time to learn to self reflect and understand what’s happening that’s making you unhappy is an invaluable investment in yourself.

Trauma, life stress, and emotional difficulties can cause persons to encounter challenges at home, work, and school. Some experiences are routine, although sometimes events create less positive outcomes in family/peer relationships or school/work performance. Persons can feel overly worried or hopeless; engage in damaging behaviors; or face changes to socializing, eating, or sleeping habits. If you are experiencing challenges, I can help you help you modify old patterns using various expressive creative modalities.

What type of Decatur mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Decatur?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
