Lana Holmes, Psy.D.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist based in the metro Atlanta area. I primarily provide individual therapy for adults, as well as some relationship therapy. Currently, I am licensed to practice therapy and teletherapy within GA. Furthermore, I am licensed to practice teletherapy (via PsyPact) in the following states: AZ, AL, CO, DE, DC, IL, MD, MO, NE, NV, NH, NC, OK, PA, TN, TX, UT, + VA.
I’m passionate about providing therapy that welcomes and celebrates marginalized, oppressed, and stigmatized communities. My areas of clinical interest and expertise include: the intersection between mental health and spirituality, issues pertaining to bdsm/poly/kink and sex positivity, issues pertaining to BIPOC individuals, issues pertaining to LGBTQIA2S+ folx, trauma across the lifespan, life transitions, anxiety disorders, depressive disorders, and bipolar and related disorders.
My overall approach to therapy is eclectic. Specifically, I apply evidence based treatment in a manner that is tailored to the needs and concerns of the individuals who participate in therapy. Some of the theoretical orientations/treatment models that I often utilize, include: Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Problem Solving Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Cognitive Processing Therapy for PTSD, Prolonged-Exposure Therapy, Person-Centered Therapy, and Psychodynamic Therapy.
In terms of working with individuals within the bdsm/poly/kink communities, my therapeutic approach is affirmative, culturally competent (i.e., informed about the cultures/subcultures connected to these communities), and intersectional (i.e., I acknowledge, accept, and welcome the multiple aspects of a person’s identity).
