Dr. Joan L Kogelschatz, Ph.D.
Clinical Psychotherapist

Board Certified Counselling
for Individuals, Couples and Families

Welcome to my site. I thank you for taking the time to visit these pages and hope that they will speak to your needs.  I am a clinical psychotherapist serving Dothan and surrounding cities in the Wiregrass.  I provide counselling for individuals, couples, children and families.  I am Board Certified in several areas and have worked in clinical, academic and research positions.  Treatment is provided in my office, where we meet for scheduled, periodic one-hour sessions. *

Experience makes the difference

My extensive experience in many areas of psychotherapy and my many years of clinical work brings a depth of insight and loving care to my practice, while continuous ongoing education keeps me abreast of the most current thinking in the field.

Create the life you want with care and support

Psychotherapy provides the opportunity to look at yourself, and in so doing to make the changes you haven’t been able to make before.  When we understand ourselves more deeply and honestly, we can change how we relate to ourselves and others, how we handle distressing situations and how we work towards meaningful accomplishments that are in line with our deepest values.

Live Life Well

Our work together can address a broad array of challenges that people face, including but not limited to anxiety, depression, relationship problems, life transitions, trauma and grieving.  The goal of our work together will be to bring about meaningful and lasting change, allowing you to heal and grow so that you can get on with creating the life you want to have and to share.

If you haven’t already done so, please sign my Guestbook.  I appreciate your thoughts and comments on our work together, the site, or anything you’d like to say.
* I am available for emergency situations over the phone or by Skype, and conduct in-patient sessions for clients who need to see me while they’re in the hospital.

    • Hi Michael – apologies for the late reply. Actually we do not take Medicare. I hope you’ve already found someone to work with, and that things are on the upswing! Best regards, Mark
