Kelli specializes in working with individuals who have experienced abuse and other traumatic events. Her work with individuals who have a wide range of experiences has given her a unique perspective when providing counseling. Her desire is to help individuals find freedom from their past experiences and trauma. Specifically, her goal in counseling is to meet clients where they are, help them identify their innate strengths, and partner together to learn how the things they have been through in the past have influenced them. It is her desire to create a safe space where clients can learn that their past does not define them and that they get to write the ending to their own story. Kelli has experience working with individuals dealing with childhood trauma and abuse, domestic violence, grief, relationship issues, depression, and anxiety.

Mikela Hallmark

Mikela Hallmark

Rise Counseling and Consulting

Atlanta, GA

Are you an overachiever or high performer? Would you call yourself a perfectionist, or do you worry about not being “enough” despite knowing that you're doing well at work or at home? Mikela is a licensed professional counselor (LPC) who loves helping people release judgment and shame to increase their ability to fully experience their lives, embracing their humanity and imperfections while still going after their goals. Sometimes this takes working on relationships, healing from trauma, shifting unhealthy thinking patterns, managing anxiety, setting boundaries, releasing unrealistic expectations of self, and/or accepting yourself. She has training and background in dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), Gottman Method (couples work), eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) and trauma work, and more. She has been a therapist for about eight years and worked in business prior to becoming a counselor. Mikela is known for gently nudging her clients to release the judgment and shame they hold toward themselves. She helps them learn to set boundaries and enjoy being in the moment as opposed to living in the past or worrying about the future.

ADHD Anxiety Grief Depression

Sandi Harding

Above and Beyond Counseling Services

Woodstock, GA

Life brings with it many challenges! Some challenges come with excitement to push us forward while others leave us overwhelmed and feeling ill-equipped to handle. As a registered nurse and pastoral counselor, Sandi has spent the past 30 years working with individuals and small groups through times of loss, grief, unexpected events, and life’s transitions, equipping them to find strength and perspective through a Christian lens. Her personal experiences have provided understanding, empathy, and the desire to share what God has taught her through the difficult times of life’s journeys. She knows the pain of divorce and the struggles of raising three children as a single parent; a child’s unplanned pregnancy; the loneliness of an empty nest as her children left home; the uncertainty when her job was terminated due to budget cuts. As her parents aged, she cared for her father while in hospice and supported her mother for her 10 years of widowhood. Although no one wants to go through the pain of loss and grief, Sandi found that her faith and dependency on God grew! She used her pain in leading Divorce Recovery seminars and small group ministries to single parents, caregivers, and cancer support groups. Sandi returned to college for a degree in counseling and a master’s in leadership. In 1999, she made a move from Pittsburgh, PA, to Atlanta to accept a job as a Faith Community nurse and when that program closed, God “called her” to Rwanda to serve as a missionary. Five years ago, she was ordained a deacon in the Anglican Church of North America. She serves on the staff of Resurrection Anglican Church in Woodstock. All three children are married and she enjoys her 10 grandchildren! Sandi states, “There is a connection through our faith and health. I have counseled many who have unresolved issues that they have carried for years—things that have been buried into their hearts, ‘secrets’ that have weighed them down. Relationships that have not reconciled keep them struggling with anger, bitterness, and lack of forgiveness. God is the great physician and He wants us to give Him our burdens. My calling and passion is to walk alongside those who are hurting to help them navigate and see God’s perspective and the hope of a new beginning when they trust in him.” “I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not disaster, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
