About Riché “Shae” Ivie-Williams
Outside of sharpening my skills on how to best help my clients, I can be found doing things that I enjoy the most: Pumping my way through a great workout. Enjoying time with my husband and two kids. Searching for the next best foodie spot in Atlanta.
I’ve been a psychotherapist for 7 years. I am compassionate and caring towards my clients. I combine holistic/wellness approaches such as mindfulness, relaxation, stress management , client-centered and cognitive behavioral therapy to help my clients make the transformation to live authentically.
My clients enter counseling to overcome stress, anxiety, past trauma, and navigate their way through new transitions in life. I address these needs to help my clients to reveal their true selves to live authentically to help transform their lives in meaningful and lasting ways.
Counseling can lead to the transformation that many need to live the life they are meant to love.
I have known many clients that feel completely alone and are not sure where to turn for help. As a therapist, we are trained to listen. Therapists provide a unique experience to listen and help you find the solutions that are best for you. Sometimes our friends, families and colleagues can be good listeners, but they often don’t know how to help us find the best solutions to our problems.
In counseling with me you’ll…
Learn how to think and respond to your problems differently
Learn to listen to yourself and communicate your needs to others
Integrate self-care and wellness into your daily lives
Heal from past trauma
Getting clear on who you are and how to live authentically
This is why counseling will me will be different from seeking advice and support from your loved ones or friends.
Added Privacy and Convenience
Over the years, clients have expressed how stressful their lives are and how overwhelmed they get by traveling to and from a therapy office.
It is my belief that going to therapy should not feel like another thing to add to your to-do list but a benefit added to your day. Therefore, I have also added online therapy to help my clients feel at ease where they are, lessen the worry about being seen, or having to find time for travel to and from an office.
