Kadesha Adelakun, LCSW, CAMS, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Kennesaw
Are you struggling with sadness, motherhood stress, anger, relationships, or family? Are you feeling emotionally drained? Or maybe your child is having behavioral challenges, racial identity issues, or a hard time adjusting to a relocation, divorce or separation, or other change(s) in their life? I help rebuild and reunify individuals and families by teaching coping skills and better communication skills to children ages 3-18, adults, and families. I use different therapeutic interventions to meet the needs of my clients and achieve results. I help children and adults learn how to understand, control, and share their emotions appropriately, and make better choices.
In addition to talk therapy with adults and adolescents, I also use play therapy with children who have a hard time appropriately expressing their feelings and experiences. I specialize in family therapy, perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, race, ethnicity, and cultural identity issues, working with children and adolescents with behavioral challenges, and parenting.
I provide clients with a safe, comfortable, and non-judgmental environment, to openly talk about their thoughts and feelings. I take an open-minded approach to client wellness and consider the client's work life, family traditions, cultural, and spiritual beliefs. I provide support for developing a new way of seeing and moving through life.

The Ebony Journey (on Facebook)

The Ebony Journey is a group for anyone (no matter your race), who are interested in being aware and sharing information, resources, and events, which emphasizes black and brown people. The goal of this group is to assist with balancing some of the images that children see or find (easily) in mainstream society. To help black and brown children see and be exposed to more (positive) images of people that look like them, while assist with exposing ALL children, no matter their race, to more (positive) images of black and brown people (dolls, books, events, activities, etc.), promoting and embracing diversity.
