Angie Seech

Graduate Counseling Intern

Hello! My name is Angie Seech. I am a clinical mental health counseling intern who also holds a PhD in cognitive psychology. I decided to become a therapist because I believe transitioning into motherhood is a profound life experience and I wanted to be there to support other mothers. I am excited to be here and am really looking forward to partnering with clients to achieve wellness. I am hoping to work with the unique needs of all women and also have particular interest in clients transitioning into motherhood who are struggling with mood, anxiety, and thus not feeling at-home in their new role. My approach is evolving as I gain more experience in the counseling field, but for now I gravitate towards a holistic view of healing and enjoy learning about my clients and what works best for them on their journey.

I believe every individual has the ability to heal and to find peace in their present moment. I see a client’s strengths and work from a foundation of self-love and compassion. As a cognitive psychologist, I find it integral for clients to understand and work with their unique brains and styles of thinking. I believe showing self-compassion in this area leads to healing overall.

Prior to starting my clinical mental health counseling training, I was teaching groups about the brain changes that happen during pregnancy and the transition to becoming a mother. After having my first child, and experiencing some of my own struggles with the transition, I made it my mission to ensure that women (and their partners, families, and caregivers!) knew exactly what was happening to their brains during these life-changing processes. Through this work, I saw a greater need to help individuals one-on-one through counseling. Becoming a parent is a profound life transition and it deserves special attention!

Alongside of my work, I am also a wife to a supportive husband, a mother to two little girls, and a fur mom to a chocolate lab mix and two orange tabbies. In 2018, we moved to Atlanta and have since grown to love all that the city has to offer. In my free time I love to hike, create, connect with nature, spend time with my family, and practice dance-based movement.
