Women's Wellness Atlanta

My name is Dr. Andreka Peat and I am a licensed clinical psychologist who specializes in Women’s Mental Health.

I myself am a woman, a wife, a mother, a daughter, a friend, a business owner, etc. so I know all too well how challenging this journey can be. At Women’s Wellness Atlanta, it is my mission to serve other women, letting them know that they are not alone and try to provide them with “a breathing space.” My practice focuses on maternal mental health (post-partum mood and anxiety disorders), fertilit

Operating as usual


I’m back with more personal truths. This one is about nourishing yourself. We all have the things we turn to to help us make it through, that’s what we call coping strategies. But let’s be clear that not all coping strategies are nourishing. Nourishing goes beyond the quick fix and really fuels your body, mind, and soul. And it is oh so worth the time and effort.


In remembrance of all the babies who are not with us, I light a candle.


Good morning. ☀️ I am
feeling very grateful this morning as I am in this beautiful setting taking some much needed time to myself. I’m here to encourage us all to look for the things in life we can be grateful for even in the midst of pain. I’m reminded of Mr. Rogers when he said that when bad things happen look for the helpers. That reminds me that even in our darkest moments maybe just maybe there is a small helper to be grateful for. Something to ponder. 💖


Gratitude fuels joy. I don’t mean this in the “toxic positivity” way in which you bypass difficult feelings. I know there is much pain and suffering in life. AND (notice I didn’t say but) I know that sometimes we can get into a pattern of only noticing the difficult things or the things that don’t go our way. I have learned that in addition to acknowledging the hurt if I allow myself to also start searching out things/people/places/experiences etc. that I am grateful for it allows me access to more joy in my life. Thoughts to ponder .💖


Presence is necessary for connection. We live in a distracted world. Let’s slow down. Sometimes slowing down feels overwhelming or unsafe. If that is true for you, seek support so that you can approach being with yourself in a supported environment. 💖


Presence is essential for all true connection. It’s a prerequisite for connection to self, connection to others, connection to purpose, connection to nature, connection to creativity, connection to healing etc. In order to be WITH we have to first BE. If you want deeper connections in your life, work on slowing down and reducing distraction.


Living a more aligned life with our true selves is made easier when we take the time to identify our own personal truths and values. 💖


I was scrolling through my phone and found a note with some of my personal truths. I thought I’d share a few here. It is so important to identify your own truths and allow them to serve as an anchor for yourself. So take a moment and reflect….what is true for you?


What a beautiful day spent with beautiful people. I am so grateful for my therapist friends who both ground and encourage me. Thank you for bringing us together.


This is how I am going into my Saturday. are two leading voices in leading us home to ourselves and to wellness. And the hot lemon water because it all starts in the gut. Caring for our mental health starts with caring for our bodies.


It is a beautiful day here in ATL! Taking long walks in my neighborhood has been a gift during this pandemic. Spending time in nature is grounding and has the power to shift your mood and provide new perspective. Slow down and get grounded. Breathe and allow yourself to just be…..💜

There is a difference between a lack of safety and feelings of discomfort. Slow down and ask yourself which experience you are having and adjust accordingly! Take care of yourselves. ❤️

It’s been a long time! There is honestly a host of reasons I have found it difficult to engage in this social media space but honestly the bottom line is that this online world is not always a safe place for me. It brings out my perfectionist and overly self critical side. “I don’t like this picture.” “I don’t know how to make a pretty background.” “I don’t know how to do videos.” “What even is a reel?” I could go on but you get the point. But I’m here because I believe we all have unique medicine to share with this world and that includes me. So here I go leaning into vulnerability. And if nothing else, following my intuition to share in this space despite my fear will allow me to look my clients, family, and friends in the eye from a space of integrity. I can say that I am daring to live out what I preach, which is that true healing comes when we are authentically ourselves! So hello again and stay tuned for what’s to come. More “bad” pictures with lighting glaring in my glasses. But it will be from my heart. That is if anyone even sees this…because apparently algorithms are a thing? 🤷🏽‍♀️

As I have been holding space for my clients, family, friends, neighbors, and most importantly myself, this truth has continually emerged. Pursuing wellness is an anti-racist act.

The very essence of racism strategically robs BlPOC from their basic human right to freely seek wellness. Food deserts, the legacy of slavery in our diets, and the constant physical, emotional, and spiritual trauma of combatting with racism daily are just a few ways in which it robs BIPOC of the physical, economic, cognitive, and emotional resources to pursue wellness in its fullness. And let’s not even get started on the white centeredness that plagues the wellness industry.

Black people take care of yourselves! Rest and nurture your body, mind and spirit. Racism wants to render you ineffective. Wellness allows you to keep on pushing. Love to you all!

New Moms Need To Set Boundaries Now More Than Ever

There is so much uncertainty for everyone right now. For new parents, there is uncertainty of parenthood on top of the uncertainty related to the COVID pandemic. It’s more than okay to set boundaries. Do what feels comfortable for you and your family!

New Moms Need To Set Boundaries Now More Than Ever Pregnancy has never been so anxiety-ridden as in the time of coronavirus. A patient recently told me, “My No. 1 priority is keeping my baby safe and healthy — but the thought of telling my in-laws that they can’t see their granddaughter makes me…
