About me

My commitment is to the welfare of my clients, whether they be individuals, groups, couples, or families. I specialize in helping people identify and achieve their personal goals by working through the problems that are causing them distress. Distress shows up in the form of depression, anxiety, relationship problems, addictions, and career challenges, just to name a few. I want to help improve the mental health of all my clients by considering physical, mental, and spiritual factors. In counseling, my approach is to apply the theories and techniques that best fit each client's needs. Cognitive and behavioral therapy (CBT) and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) are two of the approaches that I employ most often. Regardless of the client, I view problems from family systems and trauma-informed perspectives. My life experiences living overseas, working as an engineer, and ongoing training as a counselor help me to relate to a wide range of clients.

I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC), Associate Professional Counselor (APC008356) and Associate Marriage & Family Therapist (AMFT000740) in the state of Georgia.  I work under the direction of Tiffany Tufford, LPC, CPCS (Sage Counseling Associates, LLC) and supervision of Dr. Chris Wheelus, PhD, LPC, CMFT, CPCS.  I earned a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with graduate certificates in Marriage & Family Therapy and Trauma Counseling from Richmont Graduate University. 

My hobbies include caving, spending time with friends and family, watching movies, reading, hiking, playing tennis, biking, and playing golf (when time permits).

Prior to becoming a mental health counselor, I worked for over 20 years as a technology specialist and network architect for fiber optic communications networks.  During that time, I worked for a U.S.-based network operator and two different equipment manufacturers.  Part of my responsibilities included traveling to customer sites around the world to support sales.  For most of my time as an engineer, I was also chairman of a United Nations technical subcommittee that developed global standards for fiber optic networks.  As a result, I had the opportunity to work with technical experts from many different cultures.  I earned a PhD in Electrical Engineering from Georgia Tech and MS and BS degrees from Oklahoma State University.
