Meet Our Counselors
Habiba Jessica Tran LPC, NCC
Hello, my name is Habiba Jessica Tran. I have a master’s degree in professional counseling from Georgia State University.
I view my clients as those in search of some type of change in their lives. Together we work towards growth by identifying the issues involved, establishing goals, and becoming increasingly aware of reoccurring patterns that prevent growth. As awareness of one’s fears, perception, desires and strengths increase, we are able to make successful life changes. Self-awareness by becoming more honest with ourselves, can initiate the authenticity that often results in healing, transformation and a fuller life. As individuals exist within cultural contexts, which heavily influence all facets of who we are including our world view, relationships, decision making and identity, I strive to utilize cultural sensitivity in my practice.
My primary style is trauma focused therapy and solution focused therapy with adults and adolescents to empower and directly address each individual needs. I often utilize play therapy for children to help better understand their own ability to solve problems and find their potential. I provide a safe, nurturing and judgment free environment for my clients because I believe a good relationship and trust are essential for change and growth. I work successfully with clients addressing most life issues, including family and relationship problems, self growth, depression and anxiety, life changes and adjustments, grief, abuse and trauma.
Nicole Fuglewicz, LAPC, NCC
Hello, my name is Nicole Fuglewicz. I have a master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Mercer University.
As a counselor, my primary goals are to meet each client where they are, to promote personal development, to encourage empathy towards self and others, and foster overall psychological well-being. I believe in working collaboratively with my clients to address their areas of concern and things in their lives that they would like to change.
Participating in counseling can be a rewarding and a life changing experience. I strive to create a safe, encouraging, and nonjudgmental atmosphere for my clients to engage on a path of self-improvement and discovery.
I believe it is never too late for change and I am thrilled to be in a profession where I can work with people who allow me the opportunity to be a part of their journey.

Matko Mosunjac MSW
One of two certainties in life is that there will be joy and success, accompanied by pain and failure. Sometimes when we experience the latter it can be difficult to go through it alone. Even if we ourselves think we can. I believe most success, progress, and innovations in life are not done alone, but with the help and aid of our fellow human companions in virtually any arena of life. I am here to simply be a fellow human being to aid and assist you on your personal path, because I can only show you the door, you’re the one who will walk through it.
And in order to reach that door being honest with ourselves, others, and the world in which we live in is the key essential step towards managing, mastering, and reducing the fears, anxieties, and worries that inhibit us from positive change and growth.
My focus and specialty is in CBT, Gestalt Therapy, Humanistic Approach, Psychoanalysis, and Narrative Therapy in regards to addiction, behavioral issues, anxiety, grief, depression, and OCD. My therapy environment is one that is comfortable, safe, judgment free, and open minded in order to foster the best possible client therapist relationship needed to meet you where you are currently at in life, and where you envision yourself to be for your future.

At some point, most people feel as though they have hit a plateau… feeling stuck, even. Some might describe where they are as “going through the motions” or “spinning their wheels”. Others feel that they are at a crossroad. They feel compelled to make a move, but feeling a lack of empowerment or vision can disable the projection to the level point in their journey.
