More about me

Licensing: LCSW
Years in Practice: 10
State: GA

I am a Georgia Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) with over ten years of experience providing individual and family therapy and over forty years experience as a social worker. . I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, and victims of physical, emotional and sexual abuse.

My therapeutic style is warm, supportive, and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, humanistic, psychodynamic, and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

I am a life-long Christian and member of the protestant faith. I provide therapy from a Christian perspective if requested by my clients. I understand that others may have religious views completely different from my views so I do not let that impede the therapeutic process.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Andy has certainly been helpful in my understanding myself and finding peace in my relationship with my wife. Finding peace was accomplished not in small part to establishing the validity of my own ideas and feelings.

Amazing guy. Extremely good listener who relates with personal anecdotes and mental processes that help to better comprehend not only the issues but where they stem from as well. Very professional while also keeping an easy going and approachable atmosphere. Cool mustache.

I have really enjoyed my time with Andy. His approach is very warm and welcoming without ever pushing. Nothing about it feels scary, and the conversation is gently guided appropriately to unpack difficult/complicated feelings and experiences in a safe space. It is apparent to me that he really cares and is very knowledgeable in his expertise. I highly recommend connecting with him.

I have only talked with Andy a few times but it has helped me to focus on ways to feel better daily. His communication style is relaxed, warm and friendly. It puts me at ease ( I'm a very anxious person). I am extremely confident in his professional skills.
