PeachTree Therapeutics is the offspring of my twenty-five years experience counselling women, men, youth, couples, and families. Life is filled with its challenges, some more complicated than others.
I know. I overcame my own personal challenges with the help of professional therapy.
My counsellors noticed that I had a natural ability to empathize with others and that I cared deeply for them. They encouraged me to further those abilities, return to school and learn the discipline of effective counselling. After some reflection, I realized the importance in being a positive influence in the healing of another person, and it became calling from God. At twenty-five, I left the world of finance and went back to school.
The clear and divine purpose of PeachTree Therapeutics is to inspire others to overcome their own difficulties and free that confident and capable person inside, just as I did years ago.
