My services include individual psychotherapy for adults, marital/couples therapy, and professional consultation. I have experience working with a broad range of issues including depression, anxiety, grief, life transitions, trauma and abuse, and compulsive behavior. Areas of specialized experience or focus include relationship difficulties, treatment of Adult Onset Trauma (often called "PTSD"), "self-esteem" or issues involving personal identity, and treatment of emotional issues in Gifted Adults.
Additionally, I use my past experience in executive management to enhance my clinical work with issues involving career stress, professional development, and job transitions.
Clinical experience includes psychotherapy, assessment, and psychological testing with adults, adolescents, children, and couples in both outpatient and inpatient settings. This background includes work in several community mental health centers, psychiatric hospitals, medical hospitals, rehabilitation centers, Police and Fire Departments, and the Georgia State Prison system as well as Trauma/Crisis Centers, geriatric facilities, and several court systems. Dr. Pyle has experience with the full spectrum of psychiatric disorders impacting adults and with diverse populations.
