Professional statement

Amariah Love is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in Decatur, GA. She specializes in working with members of the LGBTQIA+, polyamorous, and kink communities. Many of Amariah’s clients experience marginalization because of their sexuality, gender identity, or because they engage in non-traditional relationship structures. They may face anxiety or neurodiversities that negatively impact their relationships, and engage in therapy as a way of finding more effective self-care strategies. Other clients seek ways to cope with OCD or PTSD, which interrupt their daily lives.

Amariah’s approach to therapy draws from anti-racist and social justice perspectives, and she engages clients in conversations about power structures and intersecting oppressions to better understand their emotional experiences. She practices Mindfulness-based Cognitive Therapy to help clients grow their self-awareness and understand how their thoughts impact their emotions and overall well-being. She also practices a therapy modality called Internal Family Systems which aims to understand and integrate all aspects of a person’s life, as everyone carries with them different parts. Her therapy is client-centered and strengths-based, and she offers clients the empathy and gentle guidance they need to feel supported and move forward.

Amariah earned a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Mercer University, and has nearly 10 years of experience supporting clients. She also has an extensive background advocating for the BDSM, LGBTQIA+, and polyamorous communities and is passionate about helping clients explore their sexual or gender identities to find a sense of self and to improve their self-compassion.


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.
