Roderick Y Watkins, MA, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta
"We all make mistakes, have struggles, and even regret things in our past. But you are not your mistakes, you are not your struggles, and you are here NOW with the power to shape your day and your future." - Steve Maraboli
You have far greater potential than what you've realized. Through family and individual therapy, I guide people in moving beyond self-perceived limits brought on by mental illness and life circumstances. I provide treatment on a brief or long term basis using accurate assessments, evidenced based treatment, integrity, ethics, competence, and advocacy.
My areas of practice include depression, anxiety, suicidal impulses, stress, trauma, low self-esteem, and concerns related to sex. As well as delivering mental health services for people of color and the LGBT community. You deserve to be treated with sensitivity, respect and confidentiality. Take back your power, by taking control of your mental health.
