We are committed to the health and safety of all our clients. We continue to offer our services both in-person and via video. In-person availability is limited and varies per provider.

Similar to many life transitions, the college experience can be both exciting and frightening.

Due to COVID-19 and restrictions placed throughout college campuses, college students are having more difficulty making decisions, adjusting, socializing, and planning. This has led to heightened symptoms of anxiety, loneliness, and symptoms of depression.

What to expect in therapy

Many college-related symptoms of anxiety are caused by fear-based thoughts. These fear-based thoughts are often related to the future/the unknown and can be both real (based on previous experience) and imagined (based on events that have not yet occurred).

HWP helps you get to the root cause of your symptoms by utilizing a holistic and integrative approach to therapy. Based on the severity of symptoms, therapy may be short- or long-term.

Therapy is a collaborative process. Therefore, you and your therapist will work together to identify specific concerns and develop concrete skills and techniques for coping.

Who is it for?

Individuals who are planning for college, are currently in college or are about to graduate college.

Depending on your location and the practitioner you work with, these sessions can be conducted in person at our Alpharetta location, via video, or a combination of both. With either option, you must be a permanent resident of Georgia.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I schedule an appointment?

There are a few different ways to schedule an appointment at our Alpharetta office.
Please choose the most convenient option for you.

Do you accept my insurance?

HWP does not accept insurance. Managed care companies were created to “manage” and contain escalating health care costs. Their bottom line is to reduce costs and raise profits; it is not to increase the quality of care professionals provide or your quality of life. HWP is solution-focused on quality of life and personal goals.

What is your cancellation policy?

If you need to cancel or change your appointment, we ask you to inform your provider at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled session start time. Your full session fee will be charged for missed appointments and cancellations received less than 24 hours in advance.

What forms of payment do you accept?

Cash, credit cards, and health savings (HSA) or flex spending account (FSA) cards that have a major credit card logo on it are all accepted forms of payment.
