Mental Health Counseling Services
When our lives shift unpredictably, or when the pain overwhelms, a professional can help. Just as a physician or a chiropractor helps us identify the source of pain and get us well when we suffer an illness or an accident, a psychotherapist can help us to understand, adapt, and ease the suffering when substance use, traumatic events, or life challenges create pain and problems. You don’t have to suffer when help is an email or phone call away. Contact Misti Storie for a free consultation to discuss your needs, desires, and options.

Meet Misti Storie, MS, NCC, LPC
Psychotherapist in Decatur, Georgia
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with a Master’s Degree in Professional Counseling and almost two decades of experience working in the mental health profession. I use solution-focused psychotherapy to create a safe, supportive, and confidential environment so that the two of us can find explanations and resolutions to whatever unrest led you into therapy.
Like a trusted physician or chiropractor, my goal is to identify the underlying causes of your pain and suffering in order to treat the problem and help you get to, or regain, a happy and healthy life.
My philosophy in counseling is to help you find the freedom to know yourself, your responses, and your experiences so you can ease your pain, fix your relationships, and free you to live the life you choose — as quickly as possible, but for as long as necessary.
Testimonials and Success Stories
Reaching out for help was the hard part, but the insight and comfort that I received from Misti was monumental. Having a caring and compassionate person to talk to opened so many windows to my soul. I now have the tools necessary to live a healthy and productive life.
Misti’s remarkable combination of insight and compassion has given me clarity in dark times. I always emerge from our sessions knowing and loving myself more.
As someone who has suffered trauma, death and other life-altering incidents, I have seen and spoken to many counselors and therapists. I have never before felt as comfortable, and as heard as I do with Misti. Her compassion and our thoughtful discussions have helped me ignite a new start and my days are now filled with happiness instead of sorrow.
