More about me

Licensing: LPC, Ph.D.
Years in Practice: 23
State: GA

I was a hairdresser in Atlanta for 20 years listening to client’s problems while working to make their outside beautiful. I often wondered how I could help with their inner self/beauty. Then my daughter started college and she talked me into going with her. I received my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Mercer University in 1997. A few years later I finished my Masters of Arts in Psychology from Argosy University, and then completed my Ph.D. from Northcentral in 2011.

I am an LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) in Atlanta Georgia. I worked in a private hospital for addiction and psych patients for almost 25 years. I also worked in private practice two days a week; 10 of those years. I recently retired. Presently I work on Thursdays at Georgia Recovery Centers with mandated clients who are felons. I use CBT, DBT, Client Centered, Mindfulness and Positive Therapy in an eclectic approach to therapy. I am a warm and supportive therapist but will help you tackle your struggles head on with a certain amount of tenacity. Together we will prioritize, establishing goals and the steps it will take to get through those struggles. We will work as a team to help you find a place of inner peace, contentment and accomplishment while moving forward; that you so truly deserve. I am looking forward to our journeys together!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

She always listens and gives me advice I need and not necessarily what I want to hear

She is all good.

Dr. Yearta has been a huge help so far. I’m only about 3 weeks into therapy with her, but she’s made it so easy and comfortable. Dealing with heavy anxiety and panic-related issues, she challenges me and helps me set goals to get better over time.

Responds when I send messages, very thoughtful and kind. Does not invalidate my feelings. Focuses on my strengths.

Dr. Yearta has been working with me the past couple months. She has been helping me overcome past traumas and helping me through my divorce and her guidance has helped me tremendously. I highly recommend her she has been essential through navigating this tough time in my life. Thank you Dr. Yearta for all that you do.

Dr. Yearta is a great therapist! Not only does she respond back in a timely manner but she really cares and takes the time to get to know you. She’s easy to talk to, really nice and finds helpful worksheets that pertain to what I’m struggling with. Definitely would recommend her as a therapist!

Dr.Yearta is AMAZING! She's very caring,loving and always responds when she gets time. I'm blessed to have her as my therapist.

A.R.·Sep 28, 2021


Dr. Yearta has helped me through one of the toughest periods I’ve gone through as a young woman. I feel fully seen, understood, and accepted when we speak. She gives me tangible solutions but she also just lets me speak and get it all out. She encourages me and reminds me of my strengths. I’m so thankful to have found her.

M.E.·Sep 24, 2021


She is the greatest! I feel very comfortable talking to her and I was nervous to sign up for therapy to begin with and now I am so thankful I did. I feel like I’m talking to a very dear friend who I’ve know for a while. From our very first session, she got me. She pointed out things or put a name to my problems and stresses that made everything come to light and let me know for sure what I was experiencing in my life is not right and very unhealthy for me. Now I feel like I am on my way to becoming the person I used to be before all the stress and problems in my life, a time when I was very happy. Dr. Yearta is the best!

R.O.·Sep 21, 2021


I have found Dr. Yearta's support to be a great comfort. I would recommend her to help anyone dealing with loss or stress.

J.O.·Aug 30, 2021
