About me

Philosophy of Care

Dr. J.D. Weidner is a Licensed Professional Counselor in Georgia who has 12 years of experience working with individuals with co-occurring disorders. He completed clinical licensure training at Nova Southeastern University and a doctorate in psychology with a specialization in addiction psychology from Capella University. He collaborates with the clients through motivational enhancement, cognitive behavioral therapy, guided self-change, solution-focused, exposure therapy, meditation, performance enhancement, coaching, and client-centered approaches to help individuals realize their goals in treatment.

He understands that frequently we may self-medicate ourselves as a way to deal with stress, loss, or grief and that these patterns can be detrimental, taking the form of addiction or behavioral form of escapism, and often result in a spiral of self-destruction that leads us to feel out of control. In addition, these patterns in life can cause us to lose sight of our goals affecting our health and our relationships. Therefore, he is here to help individuals regain control over their life and break the cycle to start healing.

He’s a kind, understanding person who has made me feel at ease (which is very difficult!) I would recommend him highly to my peers.

In just a few sessions JD has been wonderful in helping me process what’s going on currently in my life and is giving me tools for becoming a better version of myself! I appreciate his support while also helping me look at situations from a different perspective.
