You are welcome here.

Everyone wants to live feeling fulfilled and happy; that is a universal truth deeply rooted in our human nature. While we all share that truth, figuring out exactly what makes us feel fulfilled and happy isn’t always easy. Sometimes we find ourselves feeling just a little bit off. Other times we find ourselves completely lost, deeply unhappy, and consistently unfulfilled. Whatever the case may be, experiencing meaningful and lasting positive change is entirely possible - and that is exactly what I help my clients achieve in the warmest, non-judgmental, and productive atmosphere possible.

Individuals

I have worked with individuals from all walks of life. I believe everybody has an innate ability to self-actualize and feel fulfilled. I help my clients achieve the kind of self-mastery that lets them take charge of their lives and leads them to pursue the dreams and desires they have had all along.

Couples

I help couples improve communication and mutual understanding, maximize intimacy and connection, eliminate relationship-defeating interaction cycles and behavior patterns, and rebuild marriages and relationships that encourage lasting positive change.

Parents

Parents play a critical role in influencing motivation, academic performance, healthy relationships, and encouraging self-esteem in their children. I equip parents with practical and powerful approaches to strategically help their children succeed by overcoming obstacles and building on their strengths.

About Cliff

I am a licensed Clinical Psychologist based in Atlanta, Georgia. I am also licensed in the state of New York. I earned a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at Hofstra University, and started my professional career as a psychologist working within a special education school for middle and high school students with a wide range of disabilities.

 

I then came to the Department of Psychology at Emory University to pursue post-doctoral clinical and research training in personality assessment and trauma. After my postdoctoral training, I became Associate Director of the Laboratory of Personality and Psychopathology within The Department of Psychology at Emory. I published multiple journal articles and practiced clinically within the outpatient treatment centers at Emory University and Grady Hospital.

I moved on from Emory University to full-time private practice, where I treat clients directly. I am also a psychological consultant called upon by private and public organizations to perform psychological assessments for varying purposes. 

I am a credentialed Health Service Provider in Psychology through the National Register of Health Service Psychologists. Psychologists with this credential are verified, trained, and experienced in the delivery of prevention, consultation, assessment, and treatment.
