Trish Bellante
LMFT
Counselor, Dawsonville, GA
My name is Trish and I’m a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. I received my Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy in 2007 from University of Phoenix in San Diego, CA.  I graduated from Southeastern Louisiana University in 2001 with a BA in Sociology and an AA in Criminal Justice.  I have been working in the counseling field since 2005 and recently relocated to Georgia from Southern California.  My experience includes hospice counseling, in patient psychiatric counseling, in home counseling of children and families, substance abuse, dual diagnosis and couples.  I have extensive experience in working with substance abuse and dual diagnosis and worked for many years with that population both in patient and in the out patient setting.  I love seeing my clients make positive changes in their lives and the lives of their family that both empower them and provide more meaning to their lives.  When I’m not at work, I enjoy exploring beautiful Georgia, spending time with my family, and running marathons.  I look forward to working with you and your family to help you foster change.

Trish Monahan
LPC, DCC, MAC
Counselor, Roswell, GA
I am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in Georgia as well as a nationally, distance credentialed counselor (DCC). I have over 15 years experience working with children and families. I have been in private practice since 2011. Outside of my private practice, I am a therapist and assistant program director at an outpatient treatment facility in Roswell.
I am focused on providing individuals, couples, and families the tools necessary to transition (work through) and overcome obstacles which tend to keep them stagnant in their day to day life. Learning to transition from one aspect of your life to another can be very scary and intimidating. Working together, we can regain the motivation and determination to learn to let go of the things holding you back and learn a healthy way to navigate through life. Throughout the therapeutic process, I utilize Animal Assisted Therapy as an aide during my sessions. My dog, Minnie, is a 2.5lb Chihuahua who loves belly rubs and being held. She helps reduce stress, build rapport, and creates a sense of trust and belonging.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Kennesaw State University and my Master’s Degree in Professional Counseling from Argosy University.

Nona Ghazban
M.A., LPC
Counselor, Roswell, GA
I believe that life is about a journey. The more skills we develop the greater our ability to navigate through life’s challenges. “If we do not change our direction we are likely to end up where we are headed.”
I strongly believe that effective therapy is a two way street. It takes a cooperative effort by both the person receiving therapy and the therapist. And it takes a commitment to make sometimes difficult changes in behavior or thinking patterns. The kind of therapy I practice centers on the principles of personal responsibility, honesty and self-respect.
I graduated from McMaster University in 2005 with a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology. Shortly after, I pursued my passion and graduated from Argosy University with a Master of Arts in Community Counseling. I am currently a Licensed Professional counselor with over eight years of counseling experience specializing with individuals, couples and families with substance dependency and recovery. I have extensive experience working with people of all ages, whether working through grief, depression, anxiety, anger, a life transition or an addiction, I am committed to helping you develop the skills you need to create the life you want.

Kellie M. Moore
LPC
Counselor, Columbia, SC
I believe all individuals have the skills within them to face any challenge they may encounter in their lives. Through counseling, it is my desire to help people discover these skills and learn to apply them more effectively to overcome their obstacles.  I specialize in helping children, adolescents and their families work through the daily struggles of life to improve relationships both with themselves and each other.  I have over five years experience using play therapy as an effective treatment method with children and adolescents.  I graduated from the University of South Carolina with a specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy.  Therefore, in addition to working with children and adolescents, I have extensive knowledge and experience working with adults through individual, family and marital counseling.  I believe counseling can be beneficial to everyone.  There is no problem too big or too small.  Please contact me to schedule an appointment to begin overcoming the challenges in your life.  If you are interested in counseling, you may contact Kellie, at 800-456-2723 or by email at
