    “Your life should never be about proving others wrong. It should always be about proving yourself right. Change your focus.”

    -Carlis H. Hughes

    My name is Carlis Hughes, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia. My educational background includes an Associate of Science degree in psychology from College of Coastal Georgia, a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology & human services from Clayton State University, and a Master of Science degree in clinical mental health counseling from Mercer University.  My specialization is working with teens and adults who are making major life transitions.

    I am dedicated to working with individuals who are dealing with anxiety, depression, managing their anger, and trauma-related issues. To help individuals achieve their goals, I believe in meeting them where they are. Building rapport and having trust between the therapist and client are essential to maintaining the therapeutic relationship.

    I collaborate with clients to help them identify and resolve their problems. I pride myself on empowering individuals to gain a sense of autonomy for their lives.  I encourage clients to manage and cope with their emotions in a constructive way to make decisions with the best possible outcomes. My passion is working with people to find ways to enrich every aspect of their lives.

    I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Mindfulness to help clients to realize their goals and become a better emotionally healthier version of themselves. Are you ready to take this journey to the new you?

    I believe that being aware of what brings you happiness and serenity is the only way to “preserve your peace.” Inner peace is a priceless gift that everyone should have. If you are ready to take positive steps in your life, I am here to help you.
