About Us


Why do I feel so bad?

 Do you ever feel like you have a 1000 pound gorilla on your back? Have you had enough of feeling the terrible way that you do? Would you like to be happy and joyful instead of stressed and overwhelmed? Life and relationships can get tough. Relationships can end very ugly. Life does not always work out like we planned. When life gets to it's breaking point, you want to work with someone in a safe private environment who is qualified, compassionate, and helpful. We maintain our cars and homes. It is also important that we properly take good care of ourselves. I know that I can help you.
Do you want to connect and better improve your relationships with others? When life hits some rough bumps on the road, we get all shaken up. I can make your pathway in this life far more smoother. Would you like to learn how to have better relationships, and get closer to others? I offer winning solutions. With my help things are going to get better.
I specialize in all the problems that families and couples face, substance abuse (illegal drugs, alcohol), mental health and intellectual disabilities. I work with human relationships including marital and family issues. I work with all ages including teenagers and senior adults. I focus on overcoming life's many problems to help you feel better and to win. Call  678-615-7509 to schedule an appointment with me, and not some assistant. I care and I am here to guide you to peace, happiness and winning. - Dr. Michael Schmidt
