Counseling for Personal Development

Former Clients

Because of my focus on counselor development, I am not currently accepting new counseling clients. If you are a former client please note that I have suspended resuming therapy with former clients as well. Please contact me so that I can make referral recommendations.

Privacy Practices

New Clients

If you are a potential new client and have been referred to me, below are some links to colleagues and counseling agencies that I recommend. If you need some specific information about insurance, locations and specialties that are not listed below, you can find other providers at the Metro Atlanta Therapists Network


Finding the right counselor or therapist can be a journey with some ups and downs. These referral recommendations are not a guarantee of a “good fit” for the type of counselor that you need. I recommend that you contact multiple providers to learn about services, discuss your needs and their availability to determine whether or not you will proceed.
