I offer shame-free trauma and addiction treatment in Athens, GA. Nearly 75% of individuals struggling with substance misuse have a history of trauma. The risk of developing a substance use disorder is directly linked to a person's exposure to adversities such as childhood abuse, toxic stress, and dysfunctional relationships. I'm proud to specialize in helping those seeking recovery find the deep healing required for success. In the face of an invisible epidemic, trauma and substance misuse, you need an ally who sees you, knows your worth, and can help you move towards the life you deserve.

I believe every person can overcome their history and trauma to lead a rich fulfilling life.  I know that every person deserves and can achieve radical healing, and that it shouldn't take a lifetime to get there.  If you are relentlessly and courageously pursuing your own healing, you have come to the right place.  I use a combination of deep listening, EMDR, parts work, and other somatic modalities to help my clients achieve profound and lasting change.  I expect that you will see significant progress in the time we are working together, and if you don't, I will help you find someone who can offer you that.

The unpredictability of life creates an underlying level of sadness or anxiety that is all at once overwhelming.

Telehealth only. What makes today so different? Today is different because something happened that made you decide, "Hey, I really need to do something about my life. I need to talk to somebody." Hi! I’m Dr. Leslie Ring. Some clients come to me because the bottom just fell out of their lives, a setback at school or work, a betrayal discovered, or the death of a loved one. For others, they just don’t want to keep living like this anymore. Old hurts from childhood or previous relationships keep robbing them of their peace of mind, creativity, fun, and closeness with others.

My ideal client is anyone who is contemplating a change in their lives, big or small. This may include specific, actionable areas such as changing a certain behavior or more broad, general changes such as how to better improve your mental well-being or develop healthier relationships. I believe that everyone is capable of change and, many times, already possess everything they need - they just don't know how to access it. I work with clients to develop an individualized change plan to turn big decisions into easier action steps. I view my role in this process as a "change consultant and coach" to help people live their dreams.

Everyone experiences wounds in life, be it loss, illness, abuse, a difficult relationship, neglect, or any other overwhelming issue. Sometimes even experiences that "should" bring joy like graduating, starting a new job, marriage, or having children can render us feeling like we are in crisis - or stuck. I work with clients to help them get unstuck from feelings of anxiety, depression, and emotional reactivity. When we can identify the patterns that keep us in pain, we can begin to develop new ways to cope and manage the stress of our lives.

Teletherapy
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Athens, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Athens listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.
