Tihesha Lemon-Deacon

(LPC, NCC, MAC)

About Me

I have over 15 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and adults in an individual/couples/family/group setting as a licensed therapist. I am licensed in the state of Georgia and I have a Master's degree in Counseling. I also have specialized certifications which you will find listed below. I have studied various treatment approaches to support clients in successfully navigating through difficult periods in their life. I have worked with a range of issues to include mood disorders, addiction, suicidal ideation, ADHD, marital/couples issues, military, and veterans issues. My goal is to help you utilize your existing tools and help you establish new tools to problem solve and provide you with clarity in your situation.
I am a compassionate and empathetic therapist that utilizes the cognitive-behavioral approach, but I am committed to helping you utilizing techniques from other theoretical approaches to fit your needs. I truly believe that self-awareness and empathy are essential to positive mental and emotional well-being, and also incorporate mindfulness and motivational interviewing from a humanistic perspective to support your needs.
I have experience with the many issues that couples face surrounding communication, intimacy, financial compatibility, family boundaries, and parenting that affect the marital relationship. I also work with couples who are considering marriage and would like pre-marital counseling to ensure that their relationship has the foundation that is needed to be successful and to work through the difficult times that arise in a marriage.
I am a nationally certified counselor, with certifications in addiction, sexual dysfunction, and telemental health.
I am committed to working with you to provide the support that you are looking for, I look forward to meeting you!

Tihesha's experience and knowledge has been invaluable to myself and my partner. I myself believe we have benefited from having her as our therapist, our relationship is improving and we are talking to each other much more. She allows a safe space for both of us to speak up about how we feel, and offers constructive feedback on sensitive situations.

I have found her tools and therapy so useful that i have even requested a one on one session with her to help support other issues i have going on within my life. I found this session very productive and feel i will continue with this every now and then when needed in the future.

Her communication between session's is great and we honestly could not recommend her enough.

I love Tihesha. She listens and makes sure she understands what you’re saying. She’s not bias to either person (couple therapy) and offers great support. She’s been great for us to have for our traveling life. She also goes out of her way to get to us in urgent matters if we need.
