Have the courage to be who you are.

Life isn’t always easy. Are you struggling with your gender identity? Are you transgender and ready to transition and are looking for a place to start? Do you feel like your insides don’t match your outside? Or are you so anxious you feel like you can’t function in your life?

You know who you are and what your gender identity is. You’re looking for a professional to affirm what you have always known about your gender- who you really are.

I help people begin their transition and have a safe space to talk about their gender identity. I also help anxious and worried people remain calm and peace in their lives to feel less overwhelmed. I have worked with the LGBTQIA community for years and have listened to the stories and helped hundreds of clients who are transgender be their true, authentic selves.

If you are coming here, you might realize that life is getting too hard to deal with on your own. You might have had your first panic attack and it was scary. You realize you can’t continue living in a state of worry and anxiety about your relationship, work or how you get along with your family. It’s starting to affect your performance at work and with your partner.

I affirm the transgender community and the LGBTQ community, and I help people overcome relationship stress, religious trauma, and anxiety, and improve their relationships. I am WPATH GEI SOC v7 Certified and receive specialized training in working with the transgender community. I am a speaker at conferences throughout the nation and stay up to date with new research while working with transgender clients.

If you would prefer, I offer video distance counseling to anyone who lives in Georgia, South Carolina North Carolina, and Florida. My private practice, Katie Leikam, MBA, LCSW, is in the metro Atlanta area, located in downtown Decatur, GA. I am also a LISW-CP licensed in South Carolina and an LCSW in North Carolina.

If you’re interested in becoming an authentic, happier, more fulfilled you, I’d love to work with you every step of the way. I offer free 10 minute consultations via phone or video.

While my practice specializes in secular, affirming therapy for gender identity and the LGBTQIA community, I help teenagers, college students and adults, no matter their belief system. I help people who feel stuck get unstuck. No emotional concern is too great to overcome and therapy can lead to change. You’ll find a therapist that will really listen to you we will work together to create the goals you want to achieve.

Whether you’re a parent seeking an affirming teen therapist, navigating your college experience, or an anxious professional, we can work together to make good things happen.

If you are looking for a non-religious therapist, I am part of The Secular Therapist Network.

I want you to know that it is never too late to change and start living the life you’ve always wanted. We can build solutions and together.
