Atlanta Women’s Therapist and Counselor, Melissa Lester Olson, LCSW specializes in Women’s Issues, Trauma Resolution, Binge Eating Disorders, LGBTQ Issues, Coming Out Later in Life, Relationship Issues, Depression, Anxiety and Stress.
My practice is a combination of talk therapy and body-focused therapies with a strong focus on mind-body connections. These include Meditation and Mindfulness, EFT Tapping, Hypnosis and other neurological trauma resolution methods. My work is deeply meaningful to me and I am committed to provide you with the best therapy experience possible.
Because the work I do incorporates body-focused approaches, as well as use of the unconscious, you benefit from the most current and most effective therapy available. Best of all, the skills we use together are skills you can use on your own as well.
My own Meditation and EFT Tapping practices help me connect with my Self and others in deep and meaningful ways. And because of this, it is my privilege to share these practices with anyone who seeks a greater sense of well-being and connection.
My extensive EFT Tapping Training has transformed my work as an Atlanta Women’s Therapist & Counselor. Because EFT is a rapid and effective trauma therapy, I encourage you to ask questions and read the research. However, as with any experiential therapy, nothing takes the place of the first-hand experience itself.
Additionally, I am trained in Hypnosis by both ASCH and ASMI and pursue Consultation and Training at all times. Hypnosis can also be incorporated into your counseling and therapy work.
My own Therapy, Meditation, Hypnosis and EFT journey of 25+ years reminds me daily that real transformation is possible. And real transformation is always my goal for you.
Most importantly, because of my own diverse background, it is important to me that I work with a wide range of women. This includes women of all shapes and sizes, cultures and religions, abilities and disabilities, ages and races, sexual orientations, socioeconomic status and occupational status.
Finally, I am fortunate to practice in a very unique space that i think you will love! I am proud to call myself an Atlanta Women’s Therapist & Counselor – and grateful for the privilege to work with you.
