I am a psychotherapist with a private practice in Alpharetta, GA. I’m also a reluctant writer who avoids writing by playing golf and music whenever I can. If that doesn’t work, I watch TV.
My diverse background (read lots of different jobs), allows me to relate to a wide variety of people whether I’m in my therapist office or filling up a blank page. My practice focuses on helping people get along, so I named my business Getting Along, Inc. If you want help with any type of relationship, give me a call. I’ve worked as a bartender, sales trainer, singer, grocery clerk and was even an Air Force officer. My hard earned master’s degree in counseling is from Georgia State University.
My varied counseling career includes business consulting, professional development, working in a psychiatric hospital, the juvenile court system and drug and alcohol recovery treatment centers. I’ve been in the helping profession since 1987. I’ve been in private practice since 1992 where I finally found a way of making a living I could stick with.
I was able to fulfill a long time dream of being an adjunct professor of counseling at Argosy University where I taught graduate students for several years. I am a member of the American Academy of Psychotherapists and former member of The Licensed Professional Counselors Association of Georgia, where I served as Public Relations Chair. I am a former committee member of the Southern Region of the American Academy of Psychotherapists and a member of the Psychotherapy Guild.
My specialty areas are as diverse as my life. They include individual, couples, sexual issues, anxiety, stress and depression. I’m a business consultant. I also am well known for my expertise in the psychology of money, communication training, sexual, grief/loss, recovery and spiritual issues.
The focus of my work even includes helping people with anxiety and mood disorders, as well as sports enhancement. I have a passion for sharing what I’m learning in life. It some ways I’m always a student/teacher whether it’s through writing, helping a client through a difficult time, or guiding an athlete to find more joy in their game. My easy going, down to earth, humorous, approach to life’s most difficult questions and my love for teaching and healing, might inspire you to open your heart and mind to a different way of seeing the world. I was born, reared and still live in metro Atlanta, GA .
