Moniek S. Richardson-Garside, LCSW, MBA

I have always possessed a desire to help others from a young age. I started my journey in family and children services, mentoring Chicago youth and working with various community organizations. I eventually shifted from working in the community to working and helping others in a healthcare setting.

As a healthcare professional for over 14 years, my love of helping others is what motivates me to do all that I can to help with the patient encounter. I have worked in various clinical and healthcare settings including emergency and crisis intervention, local metro Atlanta hospitals, hospice and end-of-life care as well as outpatient clinic settings.


​​​As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker, my goal is to use my knowledge, as well as my professional and clinical experience to help individuals, couples and corporate teams recognize and overcome many of life's challenges. My unique approach of incorporating wellness practices along with a therapeutic approach will allow you to reach full potential - mentally and physically.
