Welcome!

Life isn’t always easy. Sometimes, even the strongest people amongst us need a little bit of help to work through some of life’s more challenging problems.

Everyone has battles to fight and hurdles to overcome at some point. When you decide to seek therapy or talk to a counselor, you could be hesitant, especially if you are have not been affirmed in the past.  When seeking help, you can feel confident that you are taking a courageous first step towards getting to a better place and being a better you.

My private practice, Katie Leikam, LCSW,is  in the metro Atlanta area, located in downtown Decatur, GA.  I am able to see clients via video throughout the state.  I realize that no two people are the same, and I tailor my therapy to meet your specific needs as an individual. I love helping people understand the things that are holding them back with an in-depth clinical approach. After recognizing underlying problems, clients can fully realize their strengths and adjust certain behaviors and thoughts to see things a different, healthier way.

My practice specializes in affirming therapy for gender identity and the LGBTQIA community offering solutions for transitioning, processing difficult emotions and working through family acceptance. Through years of experience and specialized training in working with the transgender and gender non conforming community, I’m confident that no emotional concern is too great to overcome and that your gender identity is not a problem to change. Through therapy, there is always a way to address the issues you face and learn coping strategies to help you both right now and in the future.

In my practice, I also work with people who have concerns with their relationships, or have recently left a relationship.  I work with clients to offer peace and move forward through depression, anxiety and difficult break ups.

Through a collaborative, specialized process tailored to your needs, we can get you on track to leading a happier, more fulfilling life by equipping you with the tools you need to more efficiently and confidently manage life’s challenges.

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

If you’re interested in becoming a better, happier, more fulfilled you, I’d love to work with you every step of the way. I offer free in person 20 minute consultations.
