Hello, my name is Dr. Galen Cole. I’m a licensed counselor, board certified psychotherapist, a certified clinical hypnotherapist, and an integrated-trauma specialist. I provide services to individuals, couples, families and groups out of two different offices in the Atlanta-Metro area.
If you review my credentials carefully you will also discover that I take my work very seriously. This is evidenced by my comprehensive training taken together with my clinical, professional, academic and real world experiences, including my work in Hollywood. It’s also evidenced by my books, research, scientific papers, and my experiences training professional and conducting workshops across the United States and around the globe.
I understand that when it comes to dealing with the difficult problems individuals, couples, and families are facing in our increasingly complex society, it requires much more than a license to provide effective guidance and support.
After 40+ years of marriage and raising children, I understand first hand that life can be difficult both at home and in the workplace. Having worked as a clinician and at the highest levels of local and national organizations, I’ve encountered problems that I never imagined when I received my doctorate degree and entered the workforce in 1982. Frankly, I’ve “been there and done that” when it comes to solving many difficult individual, interpersonal, and organizational problems.
With regard to my training, I have attained three masters degrees and a PhD from highly reputable universities. I’ve received distinguished alumni awards from two of these universities.
My academic experience includes being on the faculty at Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University (Adjunct), Pennsylvania State University and the Rollins School of Public Health at Emory University (Adjunct) in Atlanta, Georgia.
I have considerable experience practicing what I teach, including working on staff and as a consultant at numerous clinics, hospitals, and community-based organizations; consulting in Hollywood on a number of popular television programs; serving as the executive director of a not-for-profit foundation; working as an assistant director of public health in the second largest county in the U.S.; consulting for prominent international organizations like China Centers for Disease Control, the World Health Organization (WHO), the Navajo Nation, the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), the World Bank, and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF); and working as a research psychologist and director of research and evaluation activities in various centers, institutes, and offices at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia.
In 2003, I was appointed by the Governor of Georgia to serve on the Georgia Human Resources (DHR) Board. In this capacity, I served as chair of the DHR committee that provides policy guidance to the state Division of Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Addictive Diseases.
In 2009, I was chosen to serve on the American Psychotherapy Association’s Board of Professional Counselors. I served as the Ethics Chair on the Board of the Georgia Association of Licensed Professional Counselors (GALPC) from 2013-2015. I served as President of GALPC from 2015-2018.
My experience includes a number of international assignments where I’ve been a trainer and consultant in the Central Asian Republics, Nigeria, China, Thailand, Kenya, Switzerland, Australia, Peru, Germany, Uganda, and the Middle East, where I conducted training with the Palestinian Health Authority and the Israeli Ministry of Health. I have been invited to make presentations at conferences and training seminars across the world. I currently train psychotherapists across the U.S. in Trauma-Informed Mindful Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (M-CBT).
Having spent every summer of my developmental years working on a large family owned cattle ranch, I have grown up with horses. This experience with these magnificent animals, taken together with my training and experience in psychology, has enabled me to set up one of the first certified Equine Assisted Psychotherapy practices in the Southeast region of the U.S. I continue to own and train a small herd of therapeutic horses that are stabled at a facility that I designed and built for this purpose.
Without a doubt, my greatest accomplishment has been to cherish and remain happily married to my wife and the love of my life, Priscilla Wolfe, since August 18, 1975. We have raised five children to adulthood, and are grandparents to Karlee, Liam, Gillian, Hudson and King.
As I mentioned, life is difficult. At the same time, life can be a wonderful journey where you can make choices and take actions that result in great satisfaction, success and happiness. I sincerely hope that I can help you deal with and resolve your difficult issues and find true happiness and the ability to be ok, when things in your life are not ok.
