Meet The Connecting Hearts' Team


Altreneasha Ervin, LMFT

I’m a Licensed  Marriage and Family Therapist in the Metro-Atlanta Area that has a passion for aiding mothers, families, millennials, and minorities on their wellness journey. As a minority woman, I know the importance of creating and maintaining a safe space for all of my clients. The great news is, it may not feel like it at the moment, but you already have everything you need to succeed. Let’s work together to break down the barriers that are stopping you from living a more fulfilled life.


Melissa Tyson, LAPC, CADC-II

I'm a Certified Alcohol & Drug Counselor that has a passion for aiding those struggling with addictions and how it impacts their family system. I have helped several individuals through the successful completion of drug court, transitional housing, DFCS cases, and overall improving their quality of life without substances. Recognizing you have a challenge with drugs or alcohol is the first step, but deciding to intentionally change your future is the most important one. Addictions bring about various emotions such as frustration, confusion, sadness, and even anger. You don't have to do this alone. I commit to being there with you every step of the way.


Shaunesse Bell, LAPC

I’m Shaunesse Bell, an adolescent and young adult therapist specializing in ADHD management, depression and anxiety with an emphasis on cultural diversity, self worth and confidence restoration. As a parent to a neurodivergent child, I understand the importance of navigating through the barriers of knowing what tasks to complete and being unable to execute them. The initial sessions will be used for connection and rapport building to provide a safe space to share true emotions and feelings. From there, we will process the emotions while finding the strengths to highlight your superpower. It can sometimes be difficult to find gratitude in things that others have found to be different. I am here to help you shift that narrative


LaDonna Stallworth, LPC, CPCS

I’m a licensed professional counselor in the state of Georgia. As a Black woman, I’ve experienced first hand the anxiety that comes with living in a society not built for us to succeed. I’m passionate about creating a safe space to help clients work through traumatic experiences that may be holding them back from moving forward, through the means of active listening, empathy and non-judgment. I also have experience in addiction, co-occurring disorders, and grief. If you’re interested in processing, healing, and learning the tools needed to navigate life’s challenges, please reach out to schedule a session
