Meet Our Counselors
Habiba Jessica Zaman, LPC, NCC
Hello, my name is Habiba Jessica Zaman. 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 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.
Jennifer Hawkins, LAPC, MA, NCC
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.
Kaylan Maloney, MS, LAPC
I graduated from Walden University with a Master of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. My therapeutic approach includes the use of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I have completed CBT training through The Beck Institute and have been able to use these skills to help clients process emotional distress, depression, difficulties with adjustments in life, and anxiety.
How we process our thoughts influence our behaviors and can change how we think about ourselves and our situations. With the CBT approach, clients discover underlying issues, explore how experiences relate to the present, work toward goal achievement, and help clients discover and create an enhanced sense of self.
The relationship between counselor and client is essential for the process. Therefore, it’s important to me that clients feel safe, heard, and understood. I enjoy working with clients on the journey of creating a better quality of life.
Chelsea Green, LAPC, NCC, MA
Hello, my name is Chelsea Green and I received my master’s degree in clinical mental health counseling from Mercer University.
Let’s take this counseling journey together! I believe in helping my clients reach their full potential and helping them attain the skills necessary to succeed in all of their ventures. I am passionate about helping clients overcome obstacles that keep them stuck and emphasize the need for self-care and self-love. I utilize a cognitive-behavioral and person-centered approach to help clients put their negative thoughts and actions behind them to lead to positive thoughts and more beneficial behaviors. I view counseling as a collaborative effort between the therapist and the client; we’re in this together. I have experience working with adults and adolescents to process distress, anxiety, anger, depression, family/peer conflicts, and more. My goal is for clients to feel comfortable and open up without fear of judgment.
I am currently accepting new clients in person and via telementalhealth. If you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment, I can be
