About Us

welcome to Awakenings Counseling Center!

We Are A Counseling Private Practice

Awakenings Counseling Center – Atlanta is located in the North Atlanta/Sandy Springs area. We are a team of licensed counselors & therapists offering several services to our community. 

Here at Awakenings, our goal is to help you explore what could be if you let yourself try something different. We may be biased, but we believe counseling really works.

The practice was founded by Dr. Melanie Covert with it’s first office location in Cartersville, GA. Over the past several years, we’ve added more therapists and resources for our clients. In 2022, we opened the Atlanta/Sandy Springs location. Today, we offer individual counseling, couples/family counseling and group therapy. As we continue to grow, we plan to offer even more services for those in need. This includes assessments, continued education for counselors and more. 

Awakenings Counseling Center is a safe space for people from all walks of life. Here we can assure you that your concerns will be treated with respect. Our team includes culturally (BIPOC) informed, LGBTQ+ allied, Trauma informed therapists for everyone. 

We also believe that counseling should be accessible for everyone. This is why all of our therapists offer a designated number of sliding scale rates on a rolling basis. In addition, we offer services at a discounted rate with our graduate level clinical interns.
