A safe space for the LGBTQ community

At ATC, we are committed to providing quality mental health services to all. Many of us are allies or members of the LGBTQ, Kink, and CNM communities. Although we specialize or train in sex and relationship therapy, we are dedicated to the overall health of our clients and can also provide services for general mental health, including anxiety, depression, stress, grief, trauma, and addictions or compulsive behaviors.

We understand that many members of the LGBTQIA community have experienced discrimination from healthcare providers and therapists due to their sexuality and gender. We strive to create a safe space for each of our clients to be their authentic selves without fear of judgment, discrimination or trauma. In our office, we are intentional about making sure each client has what they need to feel safe to explore whatever is important to their life and sense of self.

Our practice culture is centered on our key values: Transparency, Respect, Autonomy, and Open Communication.

Our approach to LGBTQ counseling in Atlanta, GA

Atlanta Therapeutic Collective offers a variety of services for members of the LGBTQIA community in Atlanta, GA. Read on to learn more about the services we offer, and schedule an intake appointment to connect with an LGBTQ-friendly therapist who can provide support on your personal journey toward acceptance and living the life you have always dreamed of.

Individual Counseling

Traditional, individual counseling is a wonderful option for anyone who wants to work on particular challenges or manage life's stressors, especially as a queer individual in Georgia. Individuals will work with a marriage and family therapist, professional counselor, or clinical social worker. We offer counseling in person at our Atlanta, GA, office and virtually to anyone who resides in Georgia.

Relationship Counseling

Relationship counseling, including couples counseling or counseling for any relationship structure, is a great option for any partnership seeking to improve communication, closeness, sexual satisfaction, learn healthy conflict resolution skills, and reduce life stress. Working with a marriage and family therapist in Atlanta, GA, is an excellent opportunity to focus on your relationship and any challenges therein. We also provide a safe environment for polyamorous, non-monogamous, and other non-traditional relationship structures with full acceptance and affirmation of your unique needs. We offer counseling in person at our Atlanta, GA, office and virtually to anyone who resides in Georgia.

Family or Framily Counseling

Family isn't just blood related. Family can be chosen. At Atlanta Therapeutic Collective, our therapists work with anyone whom clients consider family. This includes the traditional nuclear family of parents and children and also parents and adult children, siblings of all ages, romantic partners, platonic life partners, married partners, metamours, and paramours, and the list goes on. As long as clients consent, we will work with them!

Group Counseling

Group therapy is an excellent opportunity to connect with other lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, transgender, gender non-conforming, nonbinary, and queer individuals in Georgia while addressing mental health concerns and learning coping skills.

In this supportive environment, you will have opportunities to meet other members of the LGBTQ community, talk about the unique challenges of being queer in Georgia, and learn about mental, relationship, family, and sexual health. Group therapy can supplement individual or couples counseling or serve as a low-cost way to access mental healthcare.
