About

Patrice Payment, MS, LPC

Patrice offers individual therapy in Alpharetta, Georgia specifically for moms who are struggling with maternal mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, or even just feeling overwhelmed by the many hats moms wear.

Patrice knows that becoming a mom can be one of the most exciting times in a woman’s life, but it can also be one of the hardest. When Patrice first became a mom herself, she struggled much more than she expected to.

She had been working as a play therapist, telling other moms how to parent for years. So she thought she knew what she was doing. Little did Patrice know, nothing can really prepare you for parenthood as well as experience.

“There are times along the way when I’ve realized that I wasn’t the only one struggling with something and I immediately felt relief. Realizing this gave me the passion to help other moms by showing them that they aren’t alone.”
