An Experienced Atlanta Counselor For Individuals and Relationships

When you're seeking help for an important personal matter, you want to be confident that you've made the right choice.  I hope that the information you'll find here will help you decide if I'm the best person for your unique individual needs. 

With over 25 years in private practice as an Atlanta counselor and psychotherapist, I offer three main areas of professional service.  First, I help adults resolve life problems of all kinds and achieve greater happiness, well-being and purpose in their lives. Over the years I've been able to help a lot of people even when their struggles were complex, deeply rooted or seemed hopeless.

I also provide couples and relationship counseling to help folks in Atlanta work through all types of relationship problems.  Struggles with intimacy and relationships are common, and counseling with an experienced professional can bring many positive and lasting results.  My focus in a couples therapy session is to provide a balanced, safe and structured way to keep everything moving forward toward a resolution of the issues that are impairing the relationship.

Finally, I help people overcome problematic sexual behaviors.  I use the term "problematic sexual behavior" instead of starting with labels like "sex addiction" in order to evaluate what's going on from different angles before putting a label on someone without first considering other perspectives..  Sexual behavior is problematic if it conflicts with your commitments, your values or your self-control. I have years of experience helping people in Atlanta who have engaged many forms of sexual behavior that have resulted in great pain to them and the people they love.

Since I've had this website for close to 20 years it's grown into several sections.  Spending a few minutes here can help you decide if I'm the right person for your needs.  Here's some info about my professional background to learn about my unique qualifications.  Another section contains many of my articles for professionals and the general public.  You may also enjoy reading some of the shorter essays and observations on my blog.  If you get anything positive from what you read then it's likely we'll do very well together. 

Finally, my office location is different from what you may expect.  I'm easy to get to, just off I-285 at the LaVista/Northlake exit, on the east side of Atlanta.  My office is on a quiet street of former residences that have been converted into offices.  Instead of lobbies, elevators and receptionists you will enjoy a peaceful and well-maintained sanctuary with me as your sole point of contact.  There's a Keurig in the kitchen and a walking labyrinth in the back, and you are welcome to use them both.  Setting does indeed make a world of difference.  

If you want to set up a time to meet please first look over my policies, rates and other important information.  If the business side of my practice works for you then I hope you will contact me so we can arrange a time to meet.   I try to offer initial appointments quickly so you don't have to wait long before meeting..  

Again, I hope this and the rest of what you see on this site helps you determine if I'm the person to help you in your time of need.
