I value good communication and prefer talking in person or by phone rather than by email or text. Please call me at 770-913-0506 and leave a message, which will be kept confidential. I personally return most calls the same day they are received, but please allow 24 hours for a return call.
My clients are my first priority and I return their calls first. If you are a prospective client, I will strive to return your call the same day. I provide phone conferences between office visits only to clients with whom I have a clearly established relationship in my office.
If you are not a client but you need immediate help, you can contact the Georgia Crisis and Access Line at 1-800-715-4225. If you are calling on behalf of someone who is suicidal or in emotional distress, you can contact the National Suicide Prevention Line at 1-800-273-8255, the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-784-2433, or the National Crisis Text Line at 741-741.

If you are a current or prospective client sending an email, please include your name and purpose of email in the subject line so that your email will not be classified as spam. Transmitting information to me via email does not establish a psychologist-client relationship. For protection of your privacy, I will return your message by phone if you include your phone number. Please be aware that I do not provide online counseling or other web-based services.
If you are a student or colleague sending an email, please list your university or institutional affiliation in the subject line of the email so that your email will not be classified as spam. For security purposes and to reduce phishing emails, my system deletes all emails that do not contain a recognizable subject line.
Do not write anything in an email that you would not write on a post card. Because emails are not secure or confidential, do not email any personal or confidential information. All emails are retained in the logs of internet service providers (ISP). Although it may be unlikely that someone will be looking at these logs, they are available to be read by the ISP system administrators and by various governmental agencies and security services.
I do not accept friend or contact requests from prospective, current, or former students, clients, or patients via electronic social media (e.g., Facebook) or career networking sites (e.g., LinkedIn).
I do not offer video conferences to prospective, current, or former students, clients, or patients. I offer telephone conferences on a periodic basis between office visits only to clients with whom I have a clearly established relationship in my office.
Because text messaging is a very unsecure and impersonal mode of communication, I do not text message nor do I respond to text messages from prospective, current, or former students, clients, or patients.
I do not search prospective, current, or former students, clients, or patients using Bing, Facebook, Google, Yahoo, or other search engines.
