Evening Appointments are Available!

Please call me before you call anywhere else in the Atlanta area, so that we can talk about what you should expect from your therapist and from therapy (404) 698-3699. I look forward to speaking to you.

If you are need of therapy or counseling please do not hesitate to call me.

Family Therapy

Family members don’t have to be a part of the problem when someone is having difficulty, but they are often part of the solution.

The work I do is solution-focused. No one ever leaves my office, even the first time, without some ideas as to how to begin to solve whatever problem brought them to see me.

Couples Counseling

Getting couples counseling before you are married is not a bad thing! In fact it shows that you are healthy for even considering couples counseling.

I live to help people have beautiful, happy and successful lives.

Marriage Counseling

Married for over forty years, I have my own live laboratory as to what works and what is less likely to work in marriage.

I also have had it proven to me that marriage is a set of skills and not about being “in love” or “not in love”.

Overcoming Infidelity With Successful Counseling

Many people believe that there is no return from infidelity but I do not find this to be the case.

Unlike a broken egg, things can be put back together. Most people are surprised and pleased with the outcome.

Therapy For Depression

Some People Self-medicate!

Many people know about antidepressants. However, did you know that there are some non-medical ways to treat this problem that work quite well.

Professional Guidance For Self Improvement

Self Improvement Dominoes Out Of You!

Changing on the inside on how you deal with life on life's terms makes relationships improve. When we change they change too!

Anger Management Counseling

Everybody feels anger.  The question becomes to what intensity and what you can do about it.

It is useful to learn to separate what we feel from what we do. This is part of being an adult.

Pre Divorce & Post Divorce Counseling

Sometimes people arrive in therapy too late to save the marriage.

What is important is that people learn the skills to stay together-not to live in misery, but to live lives that contain joy and commitment that make good models for children to follow.

Best Stepfamily Coaching

I was the advisor to the Stepfamily Association of Atlanta while it was here. This lasted several years.

I live in a stepfamily so I know how hard it can be and have been very effective at helping people in stepfamilies to straighten things out.

Loss of a Loved One

It can be painful and heartbreaking to watch a loved one decline.

The alternatives of sudden loss may, in some ways, be easier on the survivors but the shock waves of sudden loss are equally tragic.

Counseling For Troubled Children

Children need team parenting and consistency.

In our hectic world, these skills are often hard to do. It really takes a family to raise healthy children physically and emotionally.

Therapy For Anxiety Disorder

So, what makes the difference between normal and abnormal anxiety?

Some anxiety is good for us.  It motivates us to do things that need doing.

Parenting Coaching Counselor

Often in our busy world, it is difficult to be a consistent team when raising children.

When parents disagree about how to deal with children, the parents wind up fighting while the children go off to do as they please.

Addiction in the Family Counseling

Coupling and parenting can become irresponsible.

Drugs and alcohol interfere with everyone’s relationships when either or both are present in families–alcohol in excess and drugs at all.

Universal Truths

People who don’t know when they do wrong, can’t learn to do anything right.

Behavior is purposeful.  Think about the purpose behind what you see.

Learn Effective Communication Skills

I think this word "Communication" gets over-used without explicit understanding of “how” to say “what” to “whom”. 

I am teaching people who see me the “foreign language” of how to speak to each other in ways that promote conversation instead of shutting it down.

Learn Effective Hiring Techniques & Strategies

A company can save money if they know how to read people!

Did you know that the configuration of relationships in a family is very much like the configuration of relationships in a company. They are both “systems”.
