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, peace and purpose in their lives. After 25 years in private practice Ive learned how to be helpful in a lot of different ways, even when dealing with complex issues people are struggling to resolve.

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 lots of positive results.

Finally, I help people with problematic sexual behaviors. This is a new phrase (which I am a leader in developing in the international field of sexuality studies).  I prefer to use the term "problematic sexual behavior" instead of labels like 'sex addiction' in order not to judge the situation until we have an opportunity to view the problem from different angles.  Sexual behavior is problematic if it conflicts with your commitments, your values or your self-control. I'm extremely experienced in helping people in Atlanta who have engaged in sexual behavior that has brought pain to them and the people they love.

I've had this website for close to 20 years so it's grown into several sections.  Dip your toe in it or dive to the bottom, because it will help you decide if I'm the right person for what you need.  Here's some info about my professional background to see what sets me apart from most other psychotherapists.  Another section contains many of my articles for professionals and the general public.  But what I most enjoy writing are shorter essays and observations on my blog.  If you get anything positive out of 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 just off I-285 at the LaVista/Northlake exit on the east side of town.  Just two blocks away is a former residential street converted into offices.  My office used to be a ranch house and I keep the building and grounds well appointed and maintained for your personal comfort and privacy. Instead of lobbies, elevators and receptionists I give you a peaceful environment and me as your sole point of contact.  There's a Keurig in the kitchen and a walking labyrinth in the back, both for your use.  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/administrative 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 to keep waiting to a minimum.  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..
