I have always had a passion for helping people achieve more in mind, soul, and body and learn ways to be transformed by the renewing of the mind. When human beings experience severe life stressors, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. My great passion is bringing healing to people who are going through difficult times. I help individuals improve strategies to manage or resolve anxiety and depression and couples rediscover a healthier view of self and strengthen their relationships.


I know that no single approach is the right one for every individual, and so I have experience in a range of modalities including cognitive behavioral, solution focused, and relational.

Hi, I’m Jim, and after years of counseling I discovered there are a few things in which I am confident:

  • Being more satisfied and content is achievable at most any age and phase of life.
  • You have already waited so long…why wait any longer?
  • I can provide you with some of the latest proven techniques to change your thinking and behaviors.
  • Healing is possible
  • If you do not act now more years may disappear without a single beneficial positive change in your life.

There are so many Counselors out there and it is overwhelming, even paralyzing to find the right one. While I am clinically trained and enjoy working with all people, I also counsel Christians from a Spiritual perspective.

When I began in counseling, I regularly looked for better techniques and strategies to assist people in moving beyond a trapped mindset and soon began obtaining referrals from school administrators, teachers, business owners, pastors, leaders, and others who began entrusting me to help them, their families, friends, and associates.

Originally, all these referrals were accomplished without marketing campaigns, social media, or interactive websites. Recently however, I have been receiving multiple requests for ways to reach more people, which now involves participation with effective modern strategies to connect me with people nationally and internationally via audio and video communications. I also have instructed counseling students at several universities including Liberty University, which keeps me appraised of the latest and most effective counseling strategies and have supervised many counselors from schools, clinics, and churches.



I am founder and director of Advent Counseling and Training Services Inc established in greater Metro Atlanta Georgia, USA. At the beginning of my career I worked as Patient Care Coordinator, Program Therapist and Partial Hospital Director in area hospitals treating adolescents and their families.


Since opening my own outpatient office, I expanded to work to also include children and adults along with opening several offices in the Metro Atlanta area. In addition to counseling, I speak at conferences and workshops addressing depression, anxiety, relationships, parenting, conflict management and personal & business development. I also offer crisis, relational, and mental health consulting to businesses, churches, educational institutions, and community groups about the following subjects: Training in the development of long-term meaningful relationships; Facilitating workable strategies in improved communication; Teaching the latest effective conflict strategies; Handling Disruptive Event Management (also known as Critical Incident Response).


In 2010 I traveled to Ukraine with a friend to teach ethical capitalistic business principles to Ukrainian business owners/managers. In 2015 I traveled to Romania, where I learned about the plight of trafficked girls who are now rescued to a life of freedom. (My wife now works with a non-profit to support rescuing some of these girls with complete education and vocational training; a worthwhile cause.

In 2018 I began an online international coaching program through which I have coached men and women from the UK, Denmark, Scotland, India, China, Thailand, Canada, Romania, Iceland, and other countries.


A few of my current specialties involve the following: Teaching skills to resolve or manage long standing conflicts, Facilitating improved self-sustaining personal relational connections, and Training in recent anxiety and depression resolution/management techniques.


I completed the following earned degrees:

  • Ph.D. in Organizational Psychology from Northcentral University
  • Master of Arts in Counseling from Regent University
  • Bachelor of Science degree from The University of Valley Forge

I have the following credentials:

  • Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia, USA
  • Nationally Board Certified in Professional Counseling


I was born in and raised east of  Cleveland, Ohio. Go Tribe, Cavs, and Browns. My wife and I enjoy our friendship together, years of relational connection, and have two children. Indeed, I have practical experience with marriage and child rearing, which was not just obtained via books and formal education. My life has indeed been a tremendous learning tool, the lessons of which I apply in my counsel with others.

It is truly an exciting time to live and benefit from counseling or coaching to help you with anxiety, depression, and relationships no matter where you live and in the format in which you are most comfortable. I look forward to the journey with you. Just take the first step to connect with me and we will begin together.
