About Me

Hi! My name is Akemi McGoogan,
I am a licensed clinical social worker in the state of Georgia. I received my Bachelors in Social work from NC Central University in Durham, NC (Eagle Pride!) and my Master in Direct Practice Social Work from SUNY Albany in Albany, NY. I have experience working with children, military servicemen/women, couples and young adults.
I am a knowledgeable, warm and goal oriented therapist. I use a variety of treatment modalities depending on your needs. I meet you exactly where you are with 0 judgement. I'd love to help you move from where you are to where you want to feeling free, happy and motivated.

As a Christian therapist, we can use the power of prayer, the holy spirit and scripture to help you overcome whatever obstacles that you have in your life. With God, all things are possible! It would be my pleasure to work with you!

She’s very good at her craft. She’s got a great way of breaking down your situation for you to see it plainly.

Akemi is very understanding, resourceful and a good listener. I do not feel judged when I share things with here and she provides tools to help me move forward.

This is my first experience with therapy and I am really enjoying it. Akemi is very knowledgeable, understanding, and wise. She has a calming presence and is easy to trust

Ms. Akemi has been amazing. Being able to vent to someone and not feeling any judgment has helped me out of the hole I'd fallen into. Akemi listened to how I felt and gave solid advice. Would recommend her to any family member or friend!!
