Jessica Newman Buchholz, Psy.D.

My true passion lies in providing psychotherapy services for individuals age 12 and up as well as working with families, couples, and groups. I believe that therapy should provide a safe, supportive, and collaborative environment that works to meet your individual needs and goals. Therefore, the therapeutic process will vary from person to person, as I strive to utilize techniques that work at your own pace, incorporate your strengths and treatment preferences, and help you experience growth and change to overcome challenges and reach your full potential. Although I have a special interest in working with survivors of trauma/abuse, I enjoy working with individuals with various concerns, including, but not limited to: anxiety, depression, health/wellness, self-esteem, relationship/family difficulties, and life transitions/stressors.

In terms of my training and educational background, I am licensed as a clinical psychologist in the state of Georgia. I completed my Bachelor of Arts degree in Experimental Psychology from the University of South Carolina and received both my Masters and Doctoral degrees from the Georgia School of Professional Psychology at Argosy University. I have experience providing psychological assessments and psychotherapy services and have worked in various mental health settings, including private practices, a residential treatment facility, college counseling centers, and an outpatient community mental health center. Within these treatment settings, I provided a range of clinical services to children, adolescents, adults, groups, and families.

Lastly, I am also involved in several professional organizations. I am currently a member of the American Psychological Association (APA), the Georgia Psychological Association (GPA), and the American Group Psychotherapy Association (AGPA). I am also a member of the Board of Directors of the Atlanta Group Psychotherapy Society (AGPS) as Membership Chair.
