Joel Gibson Counseling

Catoma Counseling Services, LLC


My Practice

My name is Joel Gibson. Welcome to my evening  practice.  I offer counseling and life coaching,  addressing a number of mental health concerns as well as everyday life issues that may arise, by providing a non-judgmental space for individuals to seek help. I provide Christian and secular counseling; however, all faiths/belief systems are welcome here. I utilize a number of well-established treatment modalities which I attempt to custom fit to each individual or couple. I have over 26 years of experience in the counseling field and am currently licensed as a Professional Counselor in the state of Georgia.  I am proud to be able to serve the citizens of Gainesville and the Greater Hall County/Lake Lanier and outlying areas. I also provide on-line counseling for residents in the state of Georgia. 

What Makes My Practice Different?

I only offer evening appointments because, quite frankly, that's what a majority of clients request/need, due to work and school scheduling. In my practice, each session gives you what you need to achieve premium results in counseling. I take a different view than some counselors when it comes to the dynamic of the client/counselor relationship . I believe that a session's content should be determined by the needs of the client as specified by the nature of their current issues of concern. As a result of this view, I commit to avoid creating dependency within the relationship, helping you to get maximum results in an appropriate frame of time. This keeps us both honest and working hard for you!

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! My focus is to help you heal, energize, and become aware of your 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. I will work as hard as you do to find the peace, structure and success in your daily life that may have elluded you thus far.


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, 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. An inspired mind can overcome and awaken a tired mind. Let me help you to become inspired today so that you never have to settle for being defined by your past or by other people's past opinions of you. Today is the day to prove yourself and them wrong and live up to your highest God-given potential!

Dream Fulfillment in a Troubled World

I am here to help you on your journey and together, we will map out your future and give you the adequate tools to pave your own road to the fulfillment of your dreams. The world may seem to be a troubled place. The good news is, you don't have to be! I can help you regain focus and rely on your strengths to set and reach goals you had never before seen as possible to attain. As a Licensed Counselor, I am well-trained to handle a majority of mental health issues. As a Life Coach, I am prepared to help you attain your goals, dreams and aspirations in areas regarding personal growth, career advancement and spirituality.

Men's/Women's/Couples' Issues

 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. Sometimes we find that the biggest enemy we have is the enemy within. If you repeatedly self-sabotage and miss blessings in your life due to your own choices, it is never too late to change. Conversely, if you tend to attract and keep toxic people or circumstances in your life, that can have a negative affect on you as well. Let's sort it all out, make sense of this and create a more prosperous and fulfilling life - starting today!
