Hello There,

Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Shayda, pronounced “Shay-Dah”. My name has Persian roots, meaning “a deep love that can only be expressed through actions rather than words.”  I aspire to reflect the meaning of my name into my life each day. I believe in the power of good energy, spreading love wherever I go & helping others realize how life is, truly, what you make it.

I am a Licensed Associate Professional Counselor & Therapist at TRU Integrative Health and Wellness, located in Atlanta, Georgia [Buckhead].  I earned my dual Master’s of Science Degree specializing in Marriage, Couples & Family Therapy and Mental Health Counseling at Barry University and a Bachelor’s of Science in Psychology from University of Georgia.  Currently I am working toward my Ph.D in Mind Body Medicine with a specialization in Integrative Mental Health at Saybrook University.

I believe therapy can help individuals at any age and from all walks of life.  I pride myself on the ability to connect with people and engage those who may feel doubtful or uncertain about therapy.  I believe every individual was born with a purpose, and that with motivation, support, guidance, and positive nourishment individuals can thrive. This desire to help and motivate others is what drives me to achieve my own personal & professional goals.  As a strength-oriented, solution-focused counselor, I am committed to creating a space for openness and acceptance while providing exceptional counsel to every client.  Through therapy my main goals are to help my clients to live to their full potential and to find healing and purpose in their lives. I am passionate about empowering children, adolescents, and adults to express themselves and heal through their own creative process. Every individual’s experiences and life stories are special and unique, therefore, in my practice each individual receives a unique and tailored environment for their specific needs.  In sessions I incorporate several modalities when practicing therapy and counseling including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), narrative, solution-focused, mindfulness, and client-centered approaches. I am dedicated to helping others discover or rediscover the innate strengths that will allow them to align their beliefs, emotions, and values for a more fulfilling life.

At TRU, I welcome children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. As a bilingual therapist, I am able to also work with Farsi speaking clients during therapy. Providing support and working with a wide range of presenting concerns including, pre- and post-bariatric surgery support, grief & loss, anxiety, depression, relationship issues, self esteem and self-image, interpersonal issues, emotional regulation, emotional blockages, dissolving limiting beliefs and emotional patterns, transition & adjustment issues, trauma and women’s issues.  I also provide pre-marital and couples/marriage counseling for a variety of relationship issues, parenting and multicultural counseling.

Meanwhile, in my free time I am a creative. I make jewelry, I paint, I love to do DIYs, read & work on my photography. I’m always looking for inspiration to fuel my creativity. I’m a true believer in loving what you do, and doing what you love.  My website also is the platform I use to share my creativity, raise mental health awareness and talk about topics related to all things wellness, self care, mindfulness and therapy. I love all things wellness, healthy, natural and positive! More than anything I love to share the things I love with others! I am a mental health and self-care advocate. I strive to always be authentic, share topics and experiences that have I have learned from with all my readers!
