M.A. in Counseling Psychology from the Georgia School of Professional Psychology
My Expert Service
My primary focus is helping couples prepare for the future or repair the past. However, I also work with clients in other areas of their need. I have over 15 years experience in Public Mental Health and prior to that I served on staff in churches for more than 30 years. All these experiences have taught me to be an empathic listener who genuinely cares about you and wants to see you make the best of your circumstances. I have extensive experience in the following areas:
MENTAL ILLNESS / EMOTIONAL ISSUES
-Low Self Esteem
-Obsessive / Compulsive Behavior
-Dealing with Flirtation / Affairs
-Anger / Domestic Violence
-Grief and Loss of a Parent
...of a Child
...of a Pet
-Stress and Worry
-Problems with Aging
-Loss of Job / Income
-Guilt and Shame
-Problems in the Church
-Why does God allow bad things to
In all these issues we can work together to help you find the answers to some of life's pressing questions. I will not attempt to put my values or beliefs on you.
Experience & Qualifications
For over 30 years I served on staff in churches where I helped youth and adults deal with issues of dating, parenting, discipline, self esteem, death and dieing and spiritual issues. I'm a Christian and an ordained minister in the Southern Baptist Church.
When I stopped working in churches I earned my M.A. in Counseling Psychology and for more than 15 years gained experience in Public Mental Health working with the full spectrum of mental illnesses including psychosis, depression, anxiety, anger and domestic violence. While working in the Public Mental Health system, I developed the Domestic Violence Intervention program that is currently in use in that facility. I am a charter member of the Domestic Violence Task Force in my county. Through this organization I work to raise awareness and to prevent the spread of all forms of abuse in relationships.
