Hi! Welcome to my page. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC in Georgia) & Certified Rehabilitation Counselor (CRC nationally); with over a decade and a half of experience in helping people to move forward.
Are you stressed, depressed, anxious, overwhelmed, disconnected, or dissatisfied with your life? Are you experiencing a situation that you think no one will understand? Perhaps your situation is rare and you are not certain if what you are experiencing is real? Are you ready for help that is actually helpful? Is guilt or shame stopping you from getting to the life you want? Where ever you are and whatever you are going through, I am ready to help you figure out the first or next steps.
Are you ready to explore options, make choices and start living a better life? Sometimes when we try to change it impacts the system around us, sometimes leading to outcomes we did not necessarily intend, but have no control over.
I understand that no two people are the same and that every individual is to be respected as unique with very different feelings, actions, thoughts, experiences, and history. My holistic approach to treatment is tailored to you, an individual. Whether you only need a safe, non-judgmental environment in which to grow and find your own way, or you need help to deal with long term suffering, or someone to make the journey through some dark place, then I am waiting to go with you.
I have a very open, honest, engaging style that incorporates humor, metaphor and encouragement into the therapeutic process, a process that is self-directed and empowering for you my client. If I am wrong about any of this please let me know.
I utilize various theoretical approaches including: person-centered, humanistic, existential, Adlerian, brief psycho-dynamic, and Rational Emotive Behavioral Therapy (REBT); often framed in a skilled helper model. I have years of experience working with both disabilities (any type) and clinical mental health. I likewise specialized in technology assisted counseling, I have a proven record of counseling results including through the delivery of services via text based communication, and have utilized technology as an adjunct to face to face counseling during most of my professional career.
I am waiting to begin where you are and start on any of these:
Personal growth / development
Anxiety / Depression
Adjustment or re-adjustment
Couple / parent concerns
Interpersonal / social skills
Disability (including psychiatric / invisible disabilities)
Acute stress, trauma, post trauma (PTSD)
Guilt / shame
Bereavement / complex grief
Education: I earned my Bachelor's degrees, a BA in psychology and a BS in Chemistry from Arkansas Tech University, While working my way through school, I worked with persons with disabilities and also with persons seeking recovery from addictions. I earned my Master's degree in Counseling from the University of Arkansas in Little Rock. While pursuing my Master's I worked for the division of services for the blind, helping persons with visual impairment and blindness. I believe in a holistic approach to health and wellness.
Experience: I have over a decade and a half of counseling experiences (rehabilitation and clinical mental health) including many referrals from community agencies in situations where the combination of factors was too varied for the system to address. In addition to my education and typical work experiences, I am also a combat veteran who served as a medic in Operation Iraqi Freedom, and have extensive training in helping with trauma, both mental/emotional and physical.
I have a solid record of encouraging and challenging people to do the hard work needed to reach successful outcomes. I became interested in technology assisted counseling while working with persons who relied upon assistive-technology for face to face and social interaction, and yet due to the limitations of the portable technology and complexity of synchronous communication I quickly realized that asynchronous, text based communication was the only feasible solution for this person to ever benefit from counseling.

GA LPC LPC008803
He is very kind and easy to talk to. He's a good listener and remembers our conversations very well. He also reminds me to contact him if I've been MIA for a few days and has very accommodating appointment times. He is never late and never in a hurry, which is very important to me.

Freddy is by far the best therapist I’ve ever worked with. Just in the handful of sessions I’ve had with him I’ve seen so much progress in my thought patterns and in my behaviors. He’s very knowledgeable and gives me lots of things to work with and to think about. He’s very good at explaining things and he is a very good listener. What I love the most is that he gives me homework and things I can practice in my day-to-day life.

Shadow work is difficult and frightening, but Freddy will be your Virgil as you descend into the depths of your mind.

Mr Honeycutt is a kind, smart, patient therapist. I tend to ramble & if he can't get a word in, He'll send me a text about something we spoke about or responding to a text I sent. I'm satisfied with him as my therapist.

Freddie is highly experienced and offers great ways of reframing issues and analogies to see in a different perspective. He is intelligent and engaging during the sessions.
