Dr. Atkinson is using therapies which are not mainstream. In fact, he uses techniques which were proven in court to be consumer fraud (JONAH case). Every medical expert testified such 'therapies' cure nobody and harm many. Atkinson is merely using psychological jargon to impose his extremist religion on unsuspecting clients. Expect a long, drawn-out charm offensive to hide the real agenda: he will cure you of your ability to think for yourself.

The counsel my husband and I have received from Dr. Atkinson has been instrumental in helping us through some turbulent times as a blended family. I think my husband likes that Dr. Atkinson is direct and to the point, and I appreciate that he is a good listener. He has been married for many, many years and is also a father so he is able to share his own stories of personal growth with us. We learn something insightful at every visit and always leave his office with goals to pursue together.

He is very personable and down to earth. He listens and provides feedback, but is never critical or judgemental . I feel comfortable talking to him and I really feel I am progressing.

Almost felt badly postin this negative,but when I remembr what he did,I have 2 warn othrs abt him.He seems nice & caring...He's not.It's an act.Depndng on Ur reason 4 goin, he'll eithr do a legit eval. & trtmnt plan.BUT, if U've been sent 2 him by an authority who's aiming 2 keep U from recving needed treatment (like workers' comp), he'll kiss up 2 them & write outrageous garbge unrelated 2 who U rly are.Dsn't matter if the test scores say otherwise.He's in W.C.'s pocket,willin 2 lie 4 $$

I was sent to him for evaluation by MMPI-2, but he never met with me or spoke with me. His receptionist gave out the test, then collected it and he wrote a report based on running it through a computer scoring program. Then he added several statements of his own that had no bearing on the scores.
