About Me

Hello! My name is Dr. Atiya Nathan! The decision to seek therapy is a decision that does not always come easy. Please know that your decision shows your commitment to healing and I commend you for taking this first step. Go, you and praise God for leading you to my page!

I won't bore you with a lot of details about myself so I will try to keep this short. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker who is dually licensed in Mississippi and Virginia. I currently work for the Department of Defense as an embedded Social Worker for the Air Force. I love my work because I work hands-on with Service Members in their space, where I am able to see their daily work and triumphs! As a military spouse with lived experience on stress and transitioning, I enjoy working with those who serve as well as civilians. In the evenings, I work part-time as a contract therapist where I see a variety of clients who have experienced physical or emotional abuse, anxiety, depression, difficulties managing stress and workplace expectations, issues with self-esteem, goal-setting and even parenting issues.

I'm a Kentucky "gal" and I graduated from the University of Louisville where I earned a B.A. in Communication (2004), and a M.S. in Social Work. In 2019 I graduated with my doctorate in Education with a focus on Character Education from Regent University (Virginia). Finally, I am a Clinically Certified Anxiety Treatment Professional.

My counseling style is interactive and compassionate. I am a strength-based therapist; I love helping you to see your best self. Additionally, I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Solution-Focused techniques. My favorite part of counseling is working alongside you as you march towards healing and peace and seeing your transition. My career as a Licensed Therapist is a humbling one and one that bring me great joy. I see it as a calling and not work. As a therapist with a Christian worldview, I believe that healing comes from God and I'm incredibly thankful for the gift of counseling and to be used by the King. I'm very aware that on my worst day I'm a sinner and on my best day I'm sinner. It is with this understanding that I work with my clients. I don't know all of the answers but I work hard to find them.

Please feel free to message me through BetterHelp to schedule an appointment and for any questions. Also, please feel reach out regarding my schedule because I may have some openings.

God Bless You,
Atiya

Dr. Nathan is wonderful. When I was going through a rough patch, she had the perfect things to say. She is very helpful. I highly recommend her.
