Professional statement

Esther Cassady is a licensed Marriage and Family therapist based in Atlanta, GA. She works with adults and older adolescents who are not quite sure how to, but are wanting to move deeper into understanding and moving forward into a life they intentionally choose for themselves. Many of her clients struggle to make sense of significant loss whether from death of a loved one, a traumatic experience, or even feeling disconnected from themselves, from others in their life and sometimes even life itself, which can show up as depression, anxiety, and feeling powerless. Esther is especially impassioned about working with parents who have experienced the death of a child. In addition to working with those processing all types of grief and traumatic experiences, Esther also works with those seeking to better understand and explore their various identities or roles.

Esther welcomes people of all identities, including LGBTQIA+, and those who belong to BIPOC communities. Her training and personal beliefs are firmly rooted in anti-racism, feminism, and the belief that every person deserves freedom from any and all kinds of oppression and dehumanization. Esther draws from an eclectic mix of treatments including psychodynamic therapy, internal family systems, hypnotherapy and EMDR, or Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, and is focused on creating a warm, collaborative, holistic and authentic style of treatment interaction.

Esther has an online practice and provides the flexibility of remote sessions through the internet, and is welcoming new clients at this time. Weekend and evening hours are available.


Message to clients

When you really think about it, therapy is a weird thing. You go in to see a stranger and you are expected to talk about and share some of the most intimate, uncomfortable, or disturbing parts of your life. You pay them, and you’re supposed to feel better. Of course, therapy is not that overly simple, and if you can sit with the strangeness of it for a little while, I promise you, therapy can help you to make sense of your life. It is in this space that you can say the things that you never could, the things you didn’t even dare to think. You learn to trust yourself and move intentionally through life instead of life happening to you and you dealing with the consequences of that. And there is so much freedom and peace in that. You just need to find the right fit, the right stranger therapist who will hold you and this space in safety. Of course, I hope that I am that person, but if I’m not, I will do what I can to help you find your person.
