Professional statement

Amariah Love is a psychotherapist based in Decatur, Georgia. She specializes in treating clients who are marginalized based on their sexuality, gender identity, or nontraditional relationship structures. She follows Clinical Practice Guidelines for Working With People with Kink Interests, developed by the Kink Clinical Practice Guidelines Project. She is a sex positive counselor with anti-racist values, and she approaches therapy with an understanding of how systems of power and intersecting oppressions affect the clients with whom she works.

She believes that the therapeutic relationship is the primary vehicle for change and growth, and uses an integrative, client-centered and strength-based approach. She tailors her use of interventions to each individual client, generally practicing with a blend of Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy, Internal Family Systems, and Feminist Therapy, supplemented by queer theory.

Amariah’s work often focuses on understanding the cyclical relationship between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors, increasing self-compassion, and improving the client’s relationship with themselves. She recognizes the beauty and value of neurodivergence and validates the adaptive brilliance of all neurotypes, rather than viewing any set of symptoms or adaptations of a person’s mindbody as flawed, disorders/disordered, or in need of fixing.

Amariah also utilizes Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), along with Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, to treat Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD,) with a focus on “Pure O” OCD. She can help clients with identifying the structure and order of their obsessive thought and behavioral cycles, which are often misunderstood and experienced as frequent and overwhelming episodes of anxiety, difficulty establishing and maintaining intimate relationships, and treatment-resistant Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD.)

Amariah is committed to creating an environment in which clients can feel safe, heard, and understood. She offers both virtual and in-person individual counseling sessions. Her office is conveniently located in Avondale Estates, and is a ten minute walk from the Kensington Marta station.

Message to clients

I identify as queer, non-binary, polyamorous, demisexual, kinky, and disabled. I am honored and incredibly lucky to do work which feels like a calling to me; counseling is a passion, an art, a way of giving back to my communities, and a means of resistance. My job is to help you improve your quality of life.

In psychotherapy, I believe that the therapeutic relationship is the primary vehicle for change and growth. My emphasis on relational work reflects this belief. I believe that you are the expert of your own life, and that my role is to create and hold space which facilitates your healing and the discovery of your strengths.

I am direct, empathetic, and authentic. I will meet you where you are, work with you to determine your goals, and help you to find solutions and concrete tools to improve your relationships - with yourself and with others - and your overall sense of well-being.
