Renelle "Ren" Massey, Ph.D., Licensed Psychologist since 1990

Meet Dr. Ren Massey

Hello. I've been in private practice and consulting as a licensed psychologist in the Atlanta area for over 23 years. I feel called to provide the services I do, and I'm thankful for my abundant practice which has allowed me to meet and help so many people grow and pursue their callings. I have had the privilege of working with thousands of individuals, couples, families, and groups in various capacities over those years, primarily through providing psychotherapy and psychological evaluations services. 

Volunteering in community and professional organizations has also given me many opportunities to learn about more people's concerns, to grow as a person and professional, and to put my values into practice. I'm grateful for honors acknowledging my efforts in several areas. I was elected a Fellow of the Georgia Psychological Association (GPA) for leadership in social justice issues and received the Outstanding Achievement Award for Contributions to the Psychological Well-Being of the LGBT Community from GPA's Council on Gender and Sexual Diversity.

I completed my training and internships in clinical psychology programs approved by the American Psychological Association. I've authored many professional papers, including articles, book reviews, and chapters in books. Also, I have been an expert witness in numerous state and federal court cases. My forensic specialty has been in criminal cases. 

Since 1989 I have addressed professional and public audiences and conducted a variety of workshops at local, state, regional, and national levels. Workshop topics include anger management, conflict resolution, stress management, assertiveness training, communication skills, relaxation training, healthy lifestyles, parenting, ethics, gender identity, and sexual orientation. Audience evaluations indicate that they enjoy and value my sense of humor, years of experience, adaptability, insightfulness, and communication skills.

Consistent with my efforts to help others live healthy, balanced lives, I make sure to play during leisure time. In addition to an ongoing love of travel and skiing, I occasionally try even greater adventures at times, such as skydiving, hang-gliding, white-water rafting, and kayaking. In my spare time, I also enjoy ballroom and country-western dancing.

I invite you to browse my website and hope it will be helpful. If you have any questions, please call my office at 404-292-3400. I am most often available during morning hours because I meet with clients in the afternoons. However, I will respond to your call as soon as I can, including during my afternoon break or before finishing work at the end of the day. I return calls personally to provide direct and accessible service.
