Dr. Angela Schaffner

Hello! I’m Angela Schaffner, a licensed psychologist in Atlanta, GA. I want to help you meet your goals by walking with you on your journey as you confront and work through the obstacles you are facing.

I have been practicing therapy since 2000. The majority of my experience has been providing group and individual therapy in an intensive center for eating disorders (ACE). I have also worked in university counseling centers, hospital and school settings.

I have a doctorate in counseling psychology and a masters degree in community counseling from Ball State University, and an undergraduate degree in psychology from the University of Illinois. I did a pre-doctoral internship at Emory University Counseling Center in 2004-2005. I wrote my dissertation on factors in college adjustment.

I’ve been providing therapy for clients at Atlanta Center for Eating Disorders since 2005, and more recently started my own practice near I-85 and North Druid Hills Rd.

On a personal note, I am married and I have three sons in elementary school. I have a black belt and love practicing and teaching Taekwondo. I love helping clients face and overcome obstacles and experience greater empowerment. I am actively involved in the United Methodist Church and believe faith can be a key component of healing.

I work best with people who are feeling weighed down by problems in relationships, people who are working to resolve problematic eating patterns, and people who are facing anxiety as they navigate transitions in their lives. Most of my clients have been women and teens, but I see men in my practice as well. I believe in affirming each person’s unique identity and calling, and I see clients from diverse cultural backgrounds.

If you are seeking therapy and feel we may be a good fit, please contact me by phone (404-550-7226) or e-mail (angela@angelaschaffnerphd.com). My practice is convenient to Emory, Brookhaven, Buckhead, and Decatur and I see clients during daytime hours Monday-Friday.
