Eddie Reece was so helpful to me. I couldn't work with him because I needed night or weekend appointments to fit my schedule. Even though he didn't offer that, he proactively reached out to other... therapists and found over 5 who do offer nights & weekends. Eddie also instructed me how to screen them and select the best therapist for my needs. That's what I call outstanding service. Thank you Eddie!VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I met with Eddie in 2012 for consultations about growing my new business. The information I took away from our meetings was invaluable. Eddie helped me not only with logistical recommendations about... building a business, but also really helped me to conceptualize what I wanted my business to look like. I am happy to say that 1 year later I have met all of the goals I set for myself with the help of Eddie! I would highly recommend Eddie to anyone who feels stuck in some realm of their lives.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

I sure appreciate this review since I can highlight what my goal is when someone first contacts me. I will do all I can to ensure a prospective client finds a therapist who fits all their needs. It doesn't matter that much if it's me or not. I believe the world would be a better place if everyone was in therapy, so I'm thrilled when someone who contacts me meets with a therapist. So contact me even if you don't wind up in my office. I'm happy to help!

Thanks for taking the time to write this review! Just like I enjoy helping individuals and couples reach their full potential, I enjoy helping businesses grow and prosper. I've run my own businesses for some 30 years and know what works and certainly know what doesn't work. :) Call me for help with your business.
Eddie was great with the people in my congregation. He taught classes for us and I admired how he listened to people, connected with them, and offered insights without being pushy or arrogant. I highly recommend Eddie for his strength, insight and wisdom. He's got a great smile too!
Thanks for the compliments! I so much enjoy presenting workshops and sharing what I've learned. If you need someone to speak on communication, any aspect of relationships, addictions, sexual issues, anxiety or stress, give me a call.
Eddie is an amazing loving and compassionate man who is so easy to talk to, you find yourself losing track of time. Eddie helped me - has continued to help me, see my value and understand my heaviness is only in my head. He shares his stories - as a person who has healed in so many ways, his value is immeasurable.
Thanks for the review! This reviewer mentions compassion - a central part of a well lived life. I find that when someone works through a difficulty, they find compassion - for themselves and others. Finding compassion is very much what good therapy is about.
Eddie has the personality that can make me smile and feel better instantly! I always look forward to seeing him!
How sweet. I like the instantly part. That's not always the case. :) I'll take this opportunity to say that due to the stigma of going to therapy in our culture, by the time most folks arrive in my office, they're doing it as a last resort. I do my best to help create some relief quickly, though real change takes time. In my own experience in therapy and from what clients tell me, going to therapy isn't always something to look forward to, but the benefits are worth the time and effort. Thanks so much for the review.
I have known Eddie on a personal level for at least 15 years. In that time I have come to learn that Eddie is a down to Earth guy who follows his passions. One of his major passions in life is helping his clients (or anyone contacting him for help) recieve the services they need. Eddie is the type of therapist who takes his work very seriously and is incredibly focused on helping his clients to succeed in life. He is the guy who will answer the phone after hours, he is the guy who will spend time listening to you, and he is the guy who will help you work through the difficult 'stuff'. Eddie Reece cares for people and if he feels he is not right for you; he is the guy who will guide you to the therapist best suited to your needs.
What a nice review. Work is one of my many passions. My life is so much more meaningful because of my time with clients. I find my career challenging in that it pushes me to learn, change and grow. I may have said this in an earlier review - the most important variable to be considered when choosing a therapist is how much therapy the therapist has had. I truly believe that makes all the difference. So one of my passions is personal growth - mine and my clients'.
I worked with Eddie on a weekly basis over the past year. He helped me navigate through a difficult divorce in a 30 year marriage. He gave me great advice and guided me throughout the process. I strongly recommend his services!
I sure appreciate the kind words. The best of divorces are usually difficult, especially if the marriage lasted a long time. Every divorce is an opportunity to learn more about oneself and life. As with any new challenge in life, it's good to rely on guidance from folks who can navigate the territory. I'm thankful for this reviewer's trust and confidence.
My experience at the hands of this "helping" professional was not just inadequate; it was deeply deleterious. Afterward, I found a new counselor who was conscientious, empathic, and professionally grounded -- and the contrast was stunning. Like the person before me wrote, I'm sure the individual in question will come up with some "creative" spin on this review. Disregarding that, I would hate to see anyone else have the same experience, especially someone in a fragile enough state to be seeking help.
This is a disturbing review. Reckless and deleterious are strong words. I certainly would like to know what prompted this reviewer’s description. It’s been my experience with poor reviews that I don’t hear any concerns or complaints until I read the review and the reviewer doesn’t contact me again to give me a chance to correct whatever went wrong. Therapy, like any relationship, can be challenged with dissatisfaction. The key to having a good relationship and a good therapy experience, is meeting that challenge well. When a client isn’t satisfied with his or her time with me and shares the concerns, we have a chance to reach a satisfactory result. In cases such as this, when the first I hear about being dissatisfied is in a review and the reviewer won’t contact me, I feel a loss. I’m sad that I wasn’t helpful and won’t get a chance to be. My goal when someone first contacts me about counseling is to help them get the help that best fits their needs, even if that means seeing another counselor. Most of the calls or emails I get from perspective clients result in a visit to another counselor. Some of those referrals are due to logistical obstacles, but some are simply to find the best match possible. I keep the attitude of wanting my client to have their needs met well throughout our time together. To get the best result we can, there has to be feedback on how therapy is going. I put a lot of effort into encouraging that kind of feedback, so when a client doesn’t share concerns until they write a review, it’s obvious that something didn’t go well in our time together. I’ll always make mistakes, that’s troubling enough. When I’m not given the chance to correct them, that’s most disturbing. I am heartened though to read that this reviewer found a suitable therapist.
Definitely not for me. Not an endearing personality in my opinion, he pretty much just crosses his legs and sits in his chair listens and analyzes. I prefer being in a warm and lovable environment. I'm sure he's going to pick at this comment in his own creative way.
This reviewer is correct. I do cross my legs at times. I do listen and I do analyze. And I guess you could say I'm "picking at this comment in my own creative way." Listening to and analyzing what's going on with a client is what I hope to achieve. If I've done that well, my client will feel heard, understood and we can frame what's going on and lay out a course to correct it. (for some reason this program won't let me start a new paragraph here.) I'm not clear on what this reviewer didn't like about our time together. I gather from the second sentence abcd1234 doesn't feel I created a "warm and lovable environment." From reading abcd1234's other reviews, neither has anyone else who was reviewed. I regret our time together wasn't helpful. Good customer service is important to me. As I've said in a number of my replies to reviews, it's important to give me, any therapist, feedback about how therapy is going in order to get the most from it. I strive to take any mystery out of what I do in an effort to create an environment for change. There are times when the client/therapist match doesn't work. In those times, I strive with my client to change what isn't working or I refer to another therapist. My goal is for clients or prospective clients to get the help they need whether or not it's with me. When a prospective client contacts me, I'm more interested in finding a good match therapeutically, than I am in them coming to see me. Just as I'm not the therapist for everyone, not every client is someone I can work with effectively. Again, this reviewer is correct. My approach isn't for everyone. That would be impossible. As with anyone who isn't happy with my services, I'm more than willing to make it right if they will give me the chance. abcd1234, I invite you to contact me and let's see if I can make a good referral for you. If you share with me what you didn't like about my approach or the approach of the other therapist you reviewed, maybe I can help you find just the right warm and loving environment you desire.
I attended Eddie's workshop: Making Money as a Therapist, and would highly recommend it to anyone who has a private practice or is considering going into private practice. I am hoping at some point to establish my own practice and was interested to hear some information regarding the business piece of running a private practice. This topic is very rarely talked about in our field and there seems to be some discomfort surrounding the discussion of making money as a therapist. Eddie had great information and tips for marketing your practice in today's world. There was also a very in depth discussion of whether to take insurance or not, the pitfalls of dealing with insurance companies for both therapists and clients, and how you can succeed without relying on insurance companies. I am certain from conversations I have had with therapists in private practice most people believe it is not possible to survive without the reliance on insurance companies. Eddie will convince you that is not the case. You definitely get your money's worth by attending this workshop.
Thanks so much for your review. I regret it took me so long to reply. I have a passion for helping therapists be successful in their practices. I believe if there are more therapists with full practices, that means there are more people receiving the benefits of therapy and that makes the world a better place. Being in private practice involves two jobs - one is being the therapist. The other is being a good business person so the therapist has a job. :) I also consult with other businesses, so if you want to improve what you do for a living into not only something that will support you financially, but more importantly into an endeavor that brings meaning and purpose to your life, contact me.
Meeting with Eddie is definitely worth the investment of time and money. He is very skilled in getting to the point quickly and focusing on solutions with care and concern. I highly recommend him to address issues in your current relationship or to simply strengthen your relationships.
Thank you skiman for taking the time to write the review. Like the previous review, I regret it took so long for me to respond. I thought I'd responded to all my reviews. Therapy is an investment of time and money so I do what I can to give my clients a good return on that. I work as hard as my clients will work so they get back more than they put into our time together. I want their therapy to be thought of the way I think of my own investment in my own therapy - that's it's priceless. Therapy is often an enormous investment of time and money. One way to think of it is comparatively. If you spend $20 to 40 thousand dollars on a car wouldn't it make sense to spend less than that for enough therapy to make a lasting difference in your life? What you pay for something is important. What you get in return is what really matters. It's heartwarming to know our time together was worth the investment.
I've been to counseling on and off, but with Eddie Reece I found the most open-minded, adaptive, and uniquely honest approach yet. He does not force a formula onto the client, but actually listens ... and then offers a solution that "fits the problem," not masks or perpetuates it. What a refreshing approach to his field. We need more Eddie Reeces.
I appreciate your description of my approach Animalsrock1. I'm often asked what my approach is and my stock answer is, "Whatever works." I don't have a formula. I believe everyone is unique in some way even if the struggle is a universal one. People and their lives are complicated to say the least. It's a treat to be invited to help unravel the complexities and find creative ways to better live one's life. I'm so happy we did that for you!
Eddie is experienced, insightful, professional, honest, understanding and empathetic. As a therapist / life coach, Eddie continues to provide me with the framework to understand more about myself and, as a result, has empowered me to make decisions based upon who I truly am and what I truly desire in life. His guidance and insight have enabled me to change my life for the better. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Thanks for the review. Most clients come to me wanting to make decisions in their lives. Life decisions involve mental and emotional input. Such decisions involve many different parts of oneself that are often in conflict. I help those parts “get along,” hence the name of my company. Learning a better way to make decisions makes decision making easier. I help folks learn a better way. Most people believe that if one side of a decision can out argue another, then that’s the best decision. Usually not. When competing parts (wants and desires) cooperate, better decisions are made.
If you want some help in making better decisions, contact me.
“I don't know what it is but it just won't quit”. You've had that feeling for a long time. So you start digging, you find and read a few good books and it seems clear now. You can describe in details what exactly is “wrong” with you and how you ended up where you are. You think you know what to do to improve your life. The only problem is – despite all this intellectual understanding you do not feel any better. You realize that you just can’t do it alone. That’s how I met Eddie. I waited quite a few months before writing this review to see if the lessons stick. Apparently they do in my case. I don’t think I understand how it works but apparently you need someone who can listen and ask some high quality questions at the right time. These questions make you realize a few things that you are unable to come up with on your own. You won’t find such a quality listener in a friend or a spouse. I would suggest sticking with a certain number of sessions even if you don’t feel like it. First couple of sessions can be an unpleasant experience because you may need to face some hard facts and truths. When you push through it however – your mind starts to clear up and you start seeing things from a different perspective and that somehow makes you feel much better. Eddie, I truly appreciate your help! Thank you!
You’re very welcome. Thanks for taking the time to write your review. You point out a vital part of what makes change happen, to move from an intellectual understanding of what’s troubling you to an emotional understanding of it. If something is bothering you, it’s a pretty good bet you’re experiencing emotions. Most people then see those emotions as problems to be solved. They’re not. The “problems” in people’s lives are usually caused by trying to “solve” troubling emotions. So, as with this reviewer, self-help books are read, understanding happens and the emotions are still troubling. Trying to “solve” emotions with intellect is like trying to write literature with math formulas.
This reviewer mentions the listening I do and the questions I ask and the realizations that result. What’s he’s describing is experiencing the emotional learning that happens in therapy. Navigating our emotional world takes different maps from the maps used in the intellectual world. I see my work very much as being a guide through that world. That’s why often times our friends and loved ones aren’t as helpful when it comes to troubling emotions, they don’t have the maps either.
It’s heartwarming to read that the lessons stick. That’s what I want to hear. The type of therapy I do is designed to bring about lasting change. I also like the advice this reviewer gives, to stick with it. 90% of therapy is simply showing up. When your perception changes, it means you’ve changed. As Gandhi said, “Be the change you want to see.”
A man once fell in a deep hole. The light shone from the opening he’d fallen into, but it was too steep to climb out and it was very dark around him. So he kept looking up towards the light. Soon a doctor passed by and looked in the hole. “Thanks for stopping by doc. Can you help me? The doctor wrote a prescription and threw it in the hole, then left. A short time later, a priest came by. “Thank God you showed up father. Can you help me?” The priest wrote a prayer on a piece of paper and threw it in the hole and walked away. Then a therapist looked into the hole. The man cried out, “Can you help me?” The therapist jumped into the hole. “What’s wrong with you,” the man asked in disbelief. “Now we’re both stuck in here.” The therapist replied, “I’ve been here before and know the way out.” The man followed him through the dark and found his way.
If you want some help navigating those troubling emotions, contact me.
Eddie is truly a gifted person and was the key to a highly successful resolution to a previous relationship. I had a phone session with him today (I had since moved away from ATL) and I was shocked! What an amazing time! To be able to do what he does in person and then do it just as well from a hundreds of miles away...that's just incredible. Thanks, Eddie!!
You are so welcome! It’s always a treat to hear from you. I appreciate your willingness to check in from time to time.
As I get to know a client, it becomes easier to guide him or her through life’s challenges. Sessions don’t always have to be face to face for 50 minutes. Many of my clients utilize my service on an as needed basis. “Sessions” may be a few minutes on the phone, email correspondence or even texting. Each of my clients receives a personalized approach to meet his or her particular needs.
Call and ask how I might help you navigate your individual dilemmas. I’m happy to help you find the help you need, whether it’s with me or someone else.
