Andrew R. Warnecke, MA, LPC

"I believe it is imperative that as counselors we work diligently to help clients identify, accept, and work through their limiting ideas. I believe that my personal work and advanced education combine to create a down-to-earth and genuine love-based approach that my clients will benefit from. I am confident that my clients will be clearly and concretely shown that they can change their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I believe I have developed a quality service, and I look forward to assisting my clients to be their actualizing selves."

Mr. Warnecke has over twenty years of diverse counseling experience that has allowed him the privilege of serving clients with a wide range of concerns and facilitating their return to a more meaningful and productive life. Early in his career he worked through the Lee County Mental Health Center, in Ft. Myers, Florida while he was still in a Psychology program at Auburn University and gained valuable experience working in a group home for clients with schizophrenia.

After graduating from Auburn University and moving to Georgia, Mr. Warnecke continued to expand his counseling experience in working with both adolescents and adults at a psychiatric institute as a mental health associate. Mr. Warnecke received his master's degree in Psychology from West Georgia College and started as a staff counselor and worked his way up to manager of a local hospital's intensive outpatient program.

This experience led him into private practice for 8½ years with a local area service provider where he successfully served clients of all ages. These experiences have enabled him to establish Warnecke Professional Counseling which strives to meet the counseling needs of each individual seeking to improve and enrich their life experiences and functioning.

Mr. Warnecke enjoys public speaking and is a perennial volunteer speaker at Cobb County Superior Court's "Focus on Forever" program. He lives for challenge and believes that a goal is only as worthy as the effort it takes to achieve it. As someone once said, "The human personal relationship is the barometer for human beings."

Mr. Warnecke is licensed in the state of Georgia as a professional counselor.
