Atlanta Psychotherapy Guild


Oakdale The Atlanta Psychotherapy Guild is a group of licensed psychotherapists of many disciplines who have joined together to offer high quality therapy to the public as well as to provide a collegial and life enhancing venue for professional wellbeing.  Currently our members include social workers, pastoral counselors, licensed professional counselors, clinical nurse specialists, marriage and family therapists, psychologists, and psychiatrists.  The Guild was founded in 1995.

The Guild has a web site  which presents information about members' practices to potential clients.  Each therapist's web page features a philosophical statement, picture, credentials, experience, areas of specialization, and location of practice.  We believe this information is helpful to potential clients in choosing a therapist, and is a useful marketing and advertising tool for Guild members.

In addition, the Guild has monthly lunches, quarterly salons, and annual events which allow members to network, get support, learn, and enjoy being with like minded friends who understand and share the vicissitudes of being a therapist.

Because we are a relatively small group and because we are local, we have the advantage of seeing each other quite frequently and getting to know each other well.  We know to whom we are referring and can feel confident about those referrals.  It is a place where  new therapists in the area can connect with colleagues and begin networking.  The Guild can respond to the needs of members whether for a salon topic, a change in the web site, to help promote a group or a workshop a therapist may be offering, or to disseminate information to colleagues about practice interests.

The membership fee for the Guild is $90.00 a year plus a one time web site creation fee of  $75.  We are able to keep the fee low because we are a volunteer organization, with a volunteer board, and members pitch in for events.  The low cost makes the Guild affordable for new and seasoned therapists and makes it possible to easily discover the benefits of membership.

The Guild also offers an Associate Membership to recent graduates or any therapist who is working toward becoming fully licensed in their profession for independent practice. Associate Members have full access to the Guild meetings and list-serve but will not have a professional webpage on the Atlanta Psychotherapy Guild website until they achieve full licensure. Associate membership is $25 per year.
