Welcome! My name is Dr. Alex Kohl and I am the owner and clinical director at Talk it Out, in Atlanta, GA. At Talk it Out, I provide therapy services to adolescents and adults experiencing a wide range of mental health disorders. Most recently, I provided therapy services at North Metro Psychological Services, in Marietta, GA, and was the Executive Clinical Director at DecisionPoint Wellness Center, an intensive outpatient program for substance use disorders in Johns Creek, GA.

My primary focus is you. Choosing to obtain therapy services is a healthy and proactive decision that I would be honored to take part in with you. Everyone is different, and those differences are what make us unique. My goal is to develop a strong therapeutic relationship with you so that we can explore those differences and enable you to grow and change in a positive direction. Therapy is useful for those in crisis, as well as those experiencing daily life struggles, and I will do everything I can to help you develop and achieve your goals in therapy. Thank you for taking the time to visit and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
