Reginald Drumgoole, PMHNP -BC, NP

I have felt passion for psychiatry since the beginning of my medical career in the early 1990’s when I worked as a mental health associate, and, later a psychiatric register nurse.  My mother is a retired psychiatric nurse. I recall as a teenager sitting and observing from the nursing station on her job at the VA hospital. Growing up having discussions about psychiatric nursing was common at the dinner table at home.

I have worked as a psychiatric nurse practitioner for the past 5 years in the outpatient office setting and tele-health where I see appropriately 18-20 patients per day regarding a variety of mental health problems for children and adults. Helping clients achieve optimal mental health is the fuel for my energy. My work is a purpose for my life.

I have been a registered nurse since 1996, a family nurse practitioner since 2002, and achieved a post-masters psychiatric /mental health nurse practitioner degree on May 1, 2020 so that I could be fully competent to provide the best psychiatric services possible.

With my life’s experience, education, and work experience I have much to offer the company that I work for and the patients that I serve. I love my work. I am fortunate to enjoy excellent health at my age and plan to work many years moving forward.

I am currently working from home remote tele-health and have done this and office face to face visits for the past 5 years.

For leisure I enjoy world travel, Latin dancing, body building, and skiing. I’m a people person, I can talk to anyone.

I have GA RN and NP License, #129801. California RN license # 92555631, I have license in Colorado RN 1644123, APN 0995531

I look forward to working with you! Thank you for the opportunity to serve people.

Joyfully

Reggie

Ameleo Manuel, LPC/NCC

Initiating counseling services can be difficult for many, as there is unfortunately a stigma in our society that associates mental health challenges with weakness or deficiency. I like to think of therapy as cognitive and emotional self care. We go to the doctor for check-ups or when sick, and workout to improve or maintain our physical bodies. How is our emotional well being any different?

My goal is to provide a safe, non-judgmental space for exploration and collaboration to find solutions to the problems many of us face. This can include stressors and feeling overwhelmed; sadness, difficult family and relationship dynamics, grief/loss, and trauma exposure. Our experiences, good, bad or indifferent, shape our outlook and perspective, which may result in the need of a compassionate aid to reevaluate how we cope with challenges moving forward.

 

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Georgia, with a Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Appalachian State University. Working with adolescents and adults, I strive to develop a personable, yet professional rapport with clients, while utilizing evidenced based modalities in an eclectic manner best suited to my client’s needs and world view.

Modalities of focus include: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Person Centered Therapy, Trauma Informed with EMDR, Solution Focused, and Narrative Therapy.

James Winfrey, LPC/CPCS

For me, before I was a licensed psychotherapist, I was a believer in God.  It is that belief that is at the core of my soul.  Serving others, seeing the purpose and potential in others, and providing a safe refuge for all to be the absolute best they can be is directly connected to my faith. Therapy is the vocation that God called me to serve in. The ability to partner with those who desire to be their best is a journey that I gladly will embark upon with any that allow me to walk with them on their path to healing. God made us relational in nature, for as Ecclesiastes 4:9 reads, "Two are better than one because they have a good return for their labor." It is my faith that allows me to see best in those that I work with.  Using a collaborative approach utilizing strength, faith, and evidenced-based modalities, helping people to feel at ease and as comfortable as possible, while providing an emotionally safe space and refuge for healing is what I provide everyone, regardless of their life walk.

 

For you, therapy is a mirror which allows you to see the best in you as well. Clinically, through the utilization of various evidenced-based clinical modalities, your wholeness, happiness, and peace is attainable. Through therapeutic insight, self-approval, heightened perspective, and authoritative self-shifting, your desire to be the best you is truly possible.  It is the aligning of effective therapy approaches, safe and secure emotional refuge, and strength based collaboration that I am certain that your best life experiences can be realized. 

 

One of the greatest honors for me is to see you become the absolute best you by strengthening you to be able to hold your life mirror up and for you to say to yourself, "You are more than enough, more than capable, and have everything you need to be what you desire.” I would be honored to labor with and walk alongside you in your betterment.

Dr. Janet Shaw, PhD, RN, MBA, NE

So you can have an idea of my background, I am an RN, MBA, NE, a Certified Nurse Executive who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing from Boston College, a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Western New England College, and is a current PHD for Christian Counseling at International Seminary. I am an ordinated minister and a Pastor of the International Free Baptist Church in Snellville, Georgia. 

 

I have worked for over 30 years in the healthcare industry where I have cared for people physical, spiritually and emotionally. I have served as Christian Counselor for the past nine years. As a Christian Counselor, I have provided counseling to individuals, couples to include pre-marital counseling, as well as family counseling. The format for my counseling practice is individual and group.

 

By connecting on a personal level with people of all ages and cultures, I am able to encourage, empower and equip them to overcome life challenges by their faith. My goal with the aid of the Holy Spirit is to liberate those who have been held captive by things such as addition, anger, depression, domestic violence, stress, spiritual identify and much more as they come into the realization that they can be infinitely greater than they imagine or think.  

 

My approach to Christian Counseling is based on utilizing both psychological and Biblical principles. My success comes from utilizing many of the psychology tools and practices that are aligned with Scriptures as I work in partnership with a client to identify the source the problem that they are experiencing.  By using the Word my clients are able to experience healing, restoration, and even deliverance from the stronghold that have kept them from experiencing all that God has promised them in this life.

Theltha Yates, LPC/NCC

I became interested in counseling more than ten years ago when I found myself enjoying more of my work each day with adults with mental health needs, families in constant conflict and children with challenging behaviors.  I always thought to look pass the needs to see the genuineness in each person.  Much of my work over the years has involved assisting families to resolve major conflicts, supporting individuals with making improvements to live better lives and assisting individuals and couples through challenging life transitions.

 

Within my own life, I have also been able to support several family members and friends who have experienced depression, grief, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma, relationship problems and more. My work as a psychotherapist is not just a career choice.  Instead, my career is a personal choice to work in my purpose of helping others in a professional way.

I have become firmly committed to the belief that “Nothing will work unless you do. (Maya Angelou)” It is important to value yourself enough to work for yourself. Each person is the master of their own reality.  Nothing results without your own efforts.  As a psychotherapist, I am fully committed to this work of helping others to help themselves and to ultimately enhance their quality of life.

Deb Kim, LMSW

I came to be a social worker only after years of soul-searching. I had been fortunate enough to earn good money in business, but the money wasn’t enough. I felt stuck, unfulfilled, and aimless. It wasn’t until I learned how to hear my inner voice that I began to become the person I am meant to be.

My goal as a therapist is to help people create change for themselves and live life authentically, fully, and without regrets. I use person-centered therapy, which means that my approach focuses on specific goals and challenges unique to each client. My practice incorporates mindfulness work, motivational interviewing techniques, and cognitive behavioral therapy. 

I am passionate about creating spaces where my clients can feel heard and understood, regardless of their challenges or background. I hope that you find this to be the case.

When you are ready, contact me for an evening or weekend appointment.

Kathy Boyce, LAPC

As long as I can remember, my dream has been to sit down and talk to people about their problems. Everything about mental health and healing excites my soul. This is my calling and it is a pure joy for me to help you on your journey. I am here to listen, to care, to challenge, to comfort, to guide, and to walk with you on your journey to healing.

I hold an undergraduate degree in counseling and psychology and a graduate’s degree in Counseling both obtained from Crown College located in St. Bonifacius, Minnesota. I was originally born in Southern California, but have lived and worked in the Snellville area for over 18 years.

In the past year I have worked in a mental health hospital and in private practice with a variety of cases. I have also been a massage therapist for over 15 years and have been caring for both physical and mental health concerns during that time as well.

I primarily utilize internal family systems therapy, cognitive and dialectical behavioral therapies, and solution focused therapy. I believe that the root of many of today’s problems can be found in childhood experiences or other past trauma. Often, by unraveling the learned beliefs about self in the early stages of life, the driving force of today’s behaviors can be altered. However, this is not always the case, and I will take careful time to listen to you and craft a therapeutic plan that is tailored to your specific needs and style. 

My motto is “Together let’s heal your past so that you can change your future!”

H. Elaine Cannick, LAPC

 

Ever since a very young child, I have had a desire to make a difference in the lives of others. I have over 20yrs. experience working with children and families involved with the Department of Family and Children Services (DFCS), as well as years working with children in an Emergency Children’s Shelter and an after-school program for those with behavioral and mental health issues. 

 

After working with DFCS for several years, I decided to further my education by getting a Masters’ of Arts Degree – Community Counseling to be able to work more one-on-one with individuals in addressing barriers that impact their ability to lead a happy and successful life.

 

I obtained a Masters’ Degree from Argosy University in December 2012. However, I delayed taking steps to become a licensed counselor because I felt that I still had more work to do with DFCS (I believe timing is very important in the decisions we make and the steps we take). Once my time with DFCS was over I ventured out to start a new journey in counseling. 

In addition to my education, I gained experience during my internship and in leadership positions providing insight and advice to staff. I believe strongly in counseling and its effectiveness when there is commitment and dedication to the process.

I am a native Georgia Peach from Savannah. I completed my undergraduate studies at Savannah State University in Social Work (December 1995) where I also pledged Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority and was a member of the Honor Society. I am a proud mother of two.
