About Me

I enjoy helping individuals and couples identify a clearer vision for their lives so that they can strategically direct their energies into a meaningful future.  As a licensed psychologist with a background in theological study, I respect the personal ways individuals make sense of their experience. I help my clients identify the self-reinforcing negative spirals that prevent them from feeling vital, connected, and purposeful. Drawing upon the current and evolving knowledge base in the fields of psychology, neuroscience, and noetic sciences, I provide my clients assistance with the challenging process of creating change in their lives.

Experience Summary

My educational background includes an undergraduate degree in business administration and graduate study in theology (M.A.) and clinical psychology (Ph.D.).  I was licensed to practice as a psychologist in 1995 (GA License 1911) after completing my pre and postdoctoral training working in medical centers providing both outpatient and inpatient care and consultation services as a psychologist in the U.S. Navy. My private practice (Decatur Psychology, LLC) was formed in 2008 after a 13-year career working in higher education directing college counseling centers at Oxford College of Emory University and Agnes Scott College, where I also worked as an associate dean of students. I have taught and supervised both undergraduate and graduate students. I am a member of the Georgia Psychological Association. Link to resume.
