My Practice

My name is Joel Gibson. My experience enables me to offer effective individualized care. I treat a number of mental health concerns as well as everyday life issues that may arise, providing a non-judgmental space for individuals to seek help. I also do Life Coaching for individuals, entrepreneurs, students and corporations. I am proud to be able to serve the citizens of the Greater Gainesville and Lavonia areas by utilizing two convenient office locations. I also provide on-line counseling within the entire state of Georgia (restrictions may apply).

My Treatment Focus

My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. I achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing a path forward away from troubles of the past and toward the rewards of a bright, new future.

My Client Promise

I strive to be there for you through the ups and downs of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your new life. I am excited that you chose to begin this journey today!

Encouragement For Challenging Times

Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, I am able to help you recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life. 

I offer motivation and encouragement so that you may be better able to identify the roadblocks of the past, quickly work through them and begin to move ahead to the best days of your life!


Adolescence Issues

Adolescence can be a time of adventure, excitement and transformation in the lives of your children. It can be one of the most troubling, challenging and fearful times in their lives as well. I have extensive experience with helping adolescents for almost 30 years. I have worked with bullied teens, teens in relationship breakups and teens dealing with the loss of family members or pets. I especially enjoy working with "sensitive" adolescents who are struggling with identity issues. If you have an oppositional/violent teen and need help, I have referral sources available for practitioners who specialize in those areas.

Men's/Women's/Couples' Issues

Men very rarely reach out to get assistance with a counselor or a life coach. They have been taught to "Man Up" when it comes to problems. The trouble with that old mindset is that men age 45 to 65 have become the number one statistical suicide group in the United States since 2008 - a 40% rise which has been described by the CDC as "an epidemic". I offer a safe place for men, women and couples to come in and discuss retirement, career, relationship and other everyday struggles such as money /budgeting issues, faith-related topics and sexual problems. Help is a phone call away.
