I believe that everybody has the right to live a fulfilling life, and that everybody deserves access to quality mental healthcare. My goal for my counseling practice is to facilitate growth, healing, and the development and maintenance of authentic and loving relationships.

I was delighted to be a guest on the podcast Practicing Polyamory, and you can check out the episode I was in here:
- I earned a Bachelor of Sociology degree and a Bachelor of Women’s Studies degree from Georgia State University in 2011.
- I earned my Master of Science degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Mercer University in 2016.
- I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC.) Certificate Number: NCC 759792
- I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) License Number: LPC011640
- I began working out of Wellspring Counseling, Coaching, and Transitions Center in February of 2017, and began building my private practice under the supervision of Tom Query. I became fully licensed in 2020 and established Amariah Love Counseling, LLC, at which I am the owner and sole practitioner.
- I have been a part of – and an advocate for – the BDSM, LGBTQIA+, and polyamorous communities for more than 15 years.
- I have volunteered with organizations including Food not Bombs, Women’s Actions for New Directions (WAND), 9 to 5 Working Women, Georgia Latina Alliance for Human Rights (GLAHR,) Freedom University, Students and Workers in Solidarity at Emory University, and Cop Watch. I also founded a volunteer-run organization: Kelli’s Childcare Collective of Atlanta (KCCA) in 2010 and directed it until 2013. I am passionate about organizing for the rights of marginalized communities.
