Angelique L. Burke, MS, EdS, LPC, ChT
Clinician, Educator, Coach & Consultant
Coupling my writing and communication skills with interpersonal training, in December 1999, I graduated from Florida State University’s College of Education with a dual Master's of Science in Career Counseling and Mental Health Counseling, and an Educational Specialist degree.
My careering background also includes a Bachelor of Arts in English Creative Writing, with a focus on Special Education and Foreign Languages, also from Florida State University. While attending Florida State University, I obtained further specialization and experience via the Arts in Community Practice Certificate Program, which has supported my ability and interest in using Expressive Arts, Music, and Dance in therapeutic work with clients in both group and individual sessions.
Beyond being in private practice in Atlanta since 2004, I am a:
Certified Life Coach (CLC) through the International Coaching Science Research Foundation (ICSRF)
Member of the International Association of Trauma Professionals (IATP)
Member of the Licensed Professional Counselors Association of Georgia (LPCA)
Trained Imago Couples Therapist (IRI)
Kink Aware Professional
Certified by The Anxiety & Stress Management Institute (ASMI) as a Clinical Hypnotherapist.
My most recent education is pursuing a Doctorate in Metaphysics and Holistic Counseling. My current advanced training is focused on applying scientific based techniques in Relationship Therapy with Dr. David and Deborah Woodfellow of The Woodsfellow Institute for Couples.
In addition to providing individual, relationship/couples, and group therapy, I also love training and consulting for non-profit, for profit, grass roots, academic, and community based settings.
For well over a decade I was a very active member of The Men Stopping Violence Board of Directors, and founder of the college student focused SPEAC Project (Supporting Violence Prevention Education Advocacy and Community Accountability).

Do I take insurance, and how does that work?
Currently I do not take insurance directly. However, you may be able to be reimbursed by utilizing your "Out of Network" benefits. If you would like to use your “Out of Network” benefits, the first thing you should do is contact your insurance provider to determine if you have coverage, and what they will require for you to use it.

Individual, Couples, and Units: $175 per hour; Intake/First Sessions are 2 hours long.
Groups: $55 per Group Session.
Payment is requested at the beginning of each session via Cash, Debit, Credit, or FSA Card.
