I have seen first hand that life is hard. I have been encouraged to see the power of therapy across all settings and over all barriers. I have seen lives changed; I love my job. My name is Tia Gitgood. I am a Social Worker licensed in Michigan, Tennessee, and Georgia with over 10 years of experience. I have worked in various settings from in-home to community clinics. I received my Master's Degree in Social Work from Georgia State University.
I utilize a mix of therapies. My priority is to help my client. I work to stay up to date on new research to ensure that if something can help, I know about it. I primarily utilize cognitive-behavioral, dialectical-behavioral, and motivational interviewing. I believe the whole person must be treated. If you are not your emotional best, your body will tell you.
I would love to take this journey to healing with you when you are ready.

Tia has helped me so much in the grief I was experiencing over the loss of my mother and more. She has been supportive and challenging. For the first time in a long while I am feeling hopeful and having more good days than bad days.

Tia is so kind and has a calming presence. She asks questions, and allows you time to consider your thoughts and feelings rather than guiding you to an answer. Even after a short while I already feel better and Tia’s guidance is to thank for that!

I trust Tia and I feel that I can share anything with her. She makes me feel seen and heard. I'm so much better for having her in my life. Joining Better Help the best decision I ever made.
