Nancy Dozier, Ph.D.
NCCA Licensed Pastoral Counselor; PhD Clinical Christian Counseling
When people experience trauma, chronic life stressors, and destructive relationship patterns, life can quickly become overwhelming and unmanageable. My passion is to bring healing to people who have endured great hardship, and restore wholeness and joy to their lives. I help adults, families, teens and children navigate troubled times, and find healthy perceptions of themselves.
I have a unique background for treating the whole person. Prior to my counseling career, I practiced as a professional nurse for 17 years as well as developing a school in Macon for children with learning disabilities and autism. Understanding medical and developmental issues allows me greater insight when deciding the best therapeutic approach for my client. While temperament therapy is my foundational building block, I am also trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Attachment theory, and the 12 step model of recovery.
My educational background includes both an MA an PhD in Clinical Christian Counseling from Cornerstone University, and a BSN from Auburn University. My advanced certifications are in Addiction and Substance Abuse, and Marriage and Family Therapy. I am also an Ordained Minister credentialed by National Christian Conservative Church. My professional affiliations include membership in both the American Christian Counseling Association and the National Christian Counseling Association. I am a senior minister and associate at Northpoint.
I have a myriad of personal life experiences that I have overcome through my relationship with Jesus Christ, my husband, my mentors, and my loved ones. I live a full and enjoyable life outside the office with my husband, grown children and their families. I have a passion for painting and I have recently started biking!
I often tell my clients that I will never ask you to implement something in your life that I have not learned to practice in my own daily life. I am all about authenticity, truth, and grace. It set me free, and it will set you free as well.
