Sheldon served the City of Atlanta as a firefighter, investigator, and counselor until retiring with distinction to work fulltime as a therapist.  Today Sheldon is pursuing his Doctorate in Couples and Family Therapy.

Sheldon is trained as an Emotionally Focused Therapist and is passionate about serving couples individuals and families. Demographically Sheldon enjoys serving teens, young adults, seniors, LGBTQIA+. Sheldon has experience and training in trauma informed care, anxiety disorders, depression, men’s issues, life transition concerns, relational conflict or difficulty and those dealing with the complexity of being a frontline worker or first responder.

Sheldon relishes the opportunity to engage in outdoor sports like running, hiking, and cycling.  When time permits you can find Sheldon with his wife and sons binging their favorite movies and TV shows together with close family friends.
