I am a licensed mental health therapist in the state of Georgia with over 5 years of experience working as a clinical mental health therapist. I have a Bachelor's degree in Communications and my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Walden University. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, Bi-polar, Schizophrenia, OCD, ODD and ADHD. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.
My counseling style has always been focused on building a strong therapeutic alliance with my client. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My motto is that we all have bad situations in life (death, abuse, divorce, etc.) that we experience in life that can trigger some negative thoughts, emotional feelings, etc. and it is important to respond to these situations in a healthy manner or we tend to stay in that negative space longer than we ever intended. I have been there. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, DBT, rational-emotive counseling, and client-centered therapy. My goal is to walk with you through your healing journey as you take steps towards accepting but not allowing challenging events to define who you are and take control of your life.
I realize that it is not easy to admit that you need help, but that is the beginning of change!! If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!

Robert's perspective has been helpful for me to change my outlook and enable self growth. I've been very happy with his dialog and encouragement. It has been refreshing to have honest feedback in an environment where I feel heard.
Robert is very friendly and very helpful. Within minutes of him being assigned as my therapist, we were communicating and it was clear that Robert was prepared to dedicate himself fully to helping me. He made himself very available, there was a time where I was struggling so Robert video called me to check in which was very much appreciated. In our sessions, Robert was great at providing a comfortable and safe environment for me to talk freely and he helped me to put a lot of things I was struggling with into perspective. I am eternally grateful for his help, thank you Robert.
Robert is a great listener and did a fantatic job of picking up on verbal and non-verbal cues. He reflects meaning well and shines a light on places that might need attention.
Robert is friendly, open and kind.
I am hesitant to write Dr. Turner a review because I don't feel I will be able to do him enough justice. I wholeheartedly believe that Dr. Turner has made an effort not only to hear what I say but to make the effort to understand what I mean. As a person with trust and control issues, I feel that I can speak without hesitation. He has been able to provide valuable insight which has improved my quality of life and already taken a weight off of my shoulders. I would recommend Dr. Turner to anyone under the condition that I am still able to reach him.
I’m so glad I went with Robert as my counselor!! The sessions have given me so much clarity and peace. The guidance he’s given me has helped me regain confidence in myself. It’s greatly appreciated!
I have really enjoyed my counseling with Rob so far! He is very understanding and has helped me immensely in such a short time frame. I always look forward to our sessions and can’t wait to continue to grow.
