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.

Erin Holcomb

Erin Holcomb

Path for Peace

Woodstock, GA

Erin is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC); a National Certified Counselor (NCC); and a Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor (CPCS). She earned a master’s degree in community counseling from the University of North Georgia and a bachelor’s degree in early childhood and special education from the University of North Georgia.  Erin has dedicated her career to helping children and adolescents overcome hardships, regardless of the severity of the issue. While working in the school system, she helped elementary-aged children meet their academic goals. Later she helped adolescents and their families achieve stability while working as the Assistant Director of Cottage A/Youth Services for both the inpatient and partial programs at Ridgeview Institute. Erin enjoys working with individuals, groups, and families. She has experience working with clients in crisis and with mood disorders including anxiety, depression, and anger. She also enjoys working with families in conflict, clients with behavioral difficulties, and resistant clients.  She uses Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques to help children and adolescents learn healthy coping skills. Erin has extensive training in DBT, which can be greatly beneficial for adolescents. The technique can help with issues, including but not limited to suicidal thoughts, self-harming behaviors, anger or explosive emotional outbursts, isolation, anxiety, panic attacks, and disordered eating. DBT can also help adolescents more effectively communicate with their parents, handle difficult situations, and understand and navigate their emotions.  ​ ​Erin believes that behaviors are meaningful rather than random. Often when children act out, they are trying to get a need met or communicate with someone. Understanding the cause of behavior can help bring positive and lasting change. Erin believes that the use of art therapy allows children and adolescents to communicate in a natural manner so that the cause of behavior can be understood. She also feels that using creative expressive therapies can help bring positive change into children’s lives.
