Hello! I thought you might like to know a few things about me. I grew up in Sarasota, Florida, and received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology at Florida State University. Then I taught high school in Merritt Island, Florida, before earning my Master’s Degree in Psychology from the University of South Florida in Tampa. Then it was back to Merritt Island again, but this time I was a guidance counselor.
In 1977, I earned my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from Georgia State University. Since earning my Ph.D., I have held the following positions:
- Psychology Instructor: Kennesaw Junior College (now Kennesaw State U.)
- Coordinator of Child & Adolescent Services, Cobb-Douglas Mental Health
- Adolescent Program Psychologist, Clayton Mental Health Center
- Psychologist, Adolescent Care Unit (inpatient drug treatment program)
- Psychologist, AlphaCare Christian Therapy Associates
- Adjunct faculty: Mercer University/Atlanta, Oglethorpe University
Since 1999, I have been in private practice with The Atlanta Network for Individual and Family Therapy in Dunwoody.
Perhaps the highlight of my career was traveling the country leading my seminar “Anxiety: Treatments That Really Work” for thousands of mental health professionals. Audio and video recordings my my seminar are available at PESI.
My wife, Suzanne, is a teacher. We have been married since 1982 and we have two grown sons, David and Andrew.
