Helpful Therapy Center, LLC- the leading provider of individual, group and family counseling, clinical supervision and community outreach.
ABOUT HELPFUL THERAPY CENTER
Helpful Therapy Center, LLC is a counseling system dedicated to the wellness of the individual, the foundation of the family, and the advancement of our community. I like to think of HTC as an à la carte " practice, allowing the client to find the therapeutic approach and blend of services that fulfills the journey that fits each individual spirit.
In addition to the services provided to clients, we provide outreach within the community and guidance for new counselors as they seek full licensure.
Another passion of mine is the guidance and support to new clinicians entering into the field. Thus, I take pride in HTC serving as a internship site to such schools as Boston University, Northwestern University, and Georgia State University; hosting graduate students and nurses as they acquire the experience and exposure to help gain confidence in their craft. Interns provide private pay services at a discounted rate.

Cherrell D. Thomas, LPC
Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) | National Certified Counselor (NCC)
Certified Professional Counselor Supervisor (CPCS)
Employee Assistance Specialist - Clinical (EAS-C) | Distance Certified Counselor (DCC)
Since entering the profession over 12 years ago, I have had the pleasure of gaining experience in various areas of the counseling field; from the foster care system, community mental health centers, emergency room evaluations, psychiatric hospitals, in-home services, autism advocacy, the non profit sector, managed care, and Employee Assistance Programs. Each setting preparing me for my own private practice in 2010. Whether working with adults or children, I am always reminded of the human nature of resiliency. I enjoy collaborating, encouraging, and providing support during the personal journeys of others. I have encountered diverse clients in a variety of settings; which has helped foster my belief in the good in all of us. Every time I meet a new client, I am more aware of how much more we are alike as human beings than we are different - we all want the basic pillars in life: happiness, as sense of belonging, and fulfillment (and I am lucky enough to say that my job provides me with all three!).

Andre Lloyd, LMSW
Associate Therapist and Utilization Manager
Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW)
Since 2010, I have worked in the family law sector, primarily with the Department of Family Services and the Superior Court system, as a case manager and paralegal. I have had the opportunity of working on complex civil and domestic cases in the areas of child abuse and neglect, spousal abuse and neglect, and child manipulation. This experience influenced me to further my education in clinical social work and as a result, I am now a Licensed Master Social Worker. My education has allowed me to gain exposure from the clinical perspective, facilitating my response to individual’s psychosocial, emotional, and spiritual needs. I have also gained additional training in sexual health, sexual minority, and gender issues. I find a great importance in helping clients build their inner resources, learn how to reconfigure old patterns, and enhance their ability to effectively cope through challenging situations. It is also important to support self-actualization and identity authenticity. I believe clients should feel that they are in a safe place. It is my duty to offer a nonjudgmental open atmosphere for expression. I continue to be positively influenced by the individuals I work with in therapy. I am grateful to be a part of their journey of self-determination, resiliency, and hope. I gain personal fulfillment through this type of work and it has had a long-lasting impact on my life.

Bachelor's in English Literature, Georgia State University
Having started my journey as an intern at Helpful Therapy Center during my graduate program, I am excited to enter in my new role as associate counselor and exercise my passion for helping others. My therapeutic approach addresses the history of my clients. Many of our patterns as adults can be traced back to our childhood experiences. Understanding our origins can help us better identify our challenges, resolve our past hurts, and encourage healthy solutions.
