It might be difficult to navigate through this thing called life at times. Especially since it isn't equipped with a GPS! We're all just trying to navigate and stay on a straight and narrow route. Have you struck a few bumps on the road and realized that you're letting your anxious thoughts take the wheel? Are you bringing too much baggage from previous relationships with you on this trip? Have you lost confidence in the next step because of a drop in your
self-esteem? Do you have any family troubles that are starting to show up in your rearview mirror? If you've discovered that those potholes have thrown things off balance or are preventing things from working smoothly, it might be time to consider an ALIGNMENT!
Aligning Minds Therapy Services is a Georgia/North Carolina-based virtual mental health group practice that provides therapy services for children and adults.
Our goal is to assist individuals in achieving balance and alignment in all parts of their life by using therapy as a tool for healing from earlier traumas, gaining a better knowledge of their present circumstances, and removing anxiety-inducing ideas about the future.
Our clientele includes those suffering from prior trauma, depression, anxiety, work-life balance, adjustment concerns,
self-esteem, marital troubles, and family conflict. Cognitive-behavioral therapy, person-centered, solution-focused therapy, and a range of mindfulness practices are all employed as part of a collaborative therapeutic strategy.
A Healthy Life Is Within Reach
Hey!! My name is Yolanda, and I am the owner of Aligning Minds Therapy Services. I am a proud HBCU graduate from North Carolina! I graduated from Winston-Salem State University with a bachelor’s degree in social work in 2011 and Clark Atlanta University with a master’s degree in social work in 2013. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 8 years of clinical experience. I’ve worked in psychiatric hospitals with adolescents and adults, conducted community-based treatment, dealt with people battling with substance misuse difficulties, and even served as a crisis responder for suicide prevention.
When I’m not working as a therapist, I like to relax and spend time with my family and friends. I LOVE MUSIC! Whether it’s going to concerts, seeing live bands, or singing Karaoke; music has continued to be the source of my strength. If there is music, I’m there! I am also a lover of sports and fitness.
Honesty, transparency, and authenticity are my guiding beliefs. My clients can always count on me to provide a welcoming, supporting, and judgment-free environment. While I recognize that life might get the best of us at times, I will always urge my clients to make a commitment to showing up for themselves. Showing up is a form of self-love, and we all deserve to love ourselves more. Showing up is half the battle.

Hello, My name is Shannon. I am originally from Mobile, Al. I am a two-time HBCU graduate with a bachelor’s in social work from Alabama Agricultural and Mechanical University and a masters in Social Work from Clark Atlanta University.

I enjoy spending time with family, dancing, and traveling as my forms of self-care. I love being surrounded by water, if it includes swimming or water sports count me in. I’m known for being the chef of the family as I thoroughly enjoy cooking southern cuisine for my family and friends. I have a background in dance ranging from ballet, tap, jazz, modern and hip hop. I was the captain of my high school and college dance teams, and I also had the honor of being a part of two traveling dance companies. I think it’s safe to say that I LOVE DANCING!!
My specialties are anxiety, depression, self-esteem, and issues related to life’s transitions. My approach to therapy is gentle and healing! While healing looks and feels different for each client, what remains the same is the need for compassion, support, and patience. I continue to remind my clients that healing is not linear and to always give themselves grace. YOU ARE DESERVING OF THE GRACE THAT YOU EXTEND TO OTHERS.
