About Dr Thompson

Who I Am

As a Psychologist, Professional Life Coach, Speaker, and Owner of Building Bridges to Better Lives, I have provided mental health services for individuals, couples, women's groups, and inmates since 1996. I am also the author of Surviving Mama (an adult daughter's guide to overcoming strained mother-daughter relationships), a work for which I earned a role in a therapeutic movie featured in Jewish Film Festivals worldwide entitled, "Look at Us Now, Mother." 

I am most proud to participate in the network of providers associated with the nationally syndicated radio show "New Life Live" which has guided my ability to integrate my clinical skills and knowledge with a biblical worldview for those who desire such. My greatest passions include serving as a vessel for healing the wounded and brokenhearted as well as an illuminator of others' hidden gifts and talents.

Seeking to encourage and inspire others is a priority.  Therefore, I am a frequent presenter at community forums and workshops. Moreover, I deeply enjoy debunking the myth that psychology is just for "crazy people," and I have been sought out by media outlets across the country to help me do that including Discovery Fit and Health, Sesame Street, and the Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN).  I’m a rare native Atlantan, educated at the University of Georgia in journalism/public relations and the Georgia School of Professional Psychology where I earned my doctorate in clinical psychology.
