Vanessa D. English 

Ed.D. LPC Therapist

I am Dr. Vanessa D. English, licensed professional counselor and owner of “A New Normal Counseling Services, LLC” located in the metropolitan Atlanta area.


As an exceptional education teacher in three school districts in the State of Georgia, I always wanted to give more support to the students I taught and their parent(s). As a classroom teacher the support that could be given was limited. I felt that I could only put a band aid on situations that could truly benefit from surgery. I decided to return to school and prepare myself for this endeavor.

After retiring as a 30 year exceptional education teacher, I leveraged my mental health counseling education, wealth of experience in the classroom and my desire to help others rewrite their narratives, and became licensed by the state of Georgia as a mental health counselor/therapist as well as started my own private practice.
