BRIANNA MIKEL, MSW, LMSW
Hello, I am Brianna Mikel, a licensed social worker and therapist. Therapy is often stigmatized, causing you to feel ashamed in seeking help or understanding. As a therapist, it is my aim to foster an environment where you feel safe to unpack your vulnerabilities and emotional burdens.

*Therapy can be beneficial for people in various situations and stages of life, dealing with many different stressors and obstacles. I utilize evidence-based approaches in working with you to meet your needs. My techniques are modified as needed to ensure your therapeutic journey is most effective and rewarding for you.

I am currently a Licensed Master Social Worker in Georgia. I received my Bachelor’s of Science degree in Child and Family Development and Sociology from Georgia Southern University, and my Master’s degree in Social Work from Simmons University.
I have previously worked in various roles and settings in the social work field. I began my career working with children and families in child welfare. I then gained experience in outpatient addiction treatment, working with adults in abstinence-based recovery. Most recently I worked with individuals diagnosed with severe and persistent mental illness. I have experience in conducting assessments, group and individual therapy, case management, community resource linkage, ongoing community treatment, and crisis intervention and management.
Outside of being a therapist, my personal life consists of many different interests and hobbies. I enjoy hiking, traveling, zumba, puzzles, and experimenting in the kitchen with delicious desserts!
