CBI Counseling Center Welcomes Three New Counselors to its Clinical Staff

Chattanooga, Tennessee – (February 19, 2013)


The CBI Counseling Center, a part of Richmont Graduate University, is pleased to announce the additions of three new counselors to its clinical staff.

  • Ed Doreau, MA, joins the staff after moving to Chattanooga only a couple of years ago from Massachusetts. His professional work focuses on the needs of teenage males as well as helping individuals struggling with addictions. He also has training in Motivational Interviewing, a mode of therapy seen as particularly helpful with addictions.
  •  Willie “Bo” Walker, LCSW, has worked in mental health in Chattanooga for about 30 years, and brings a wealth of experience and wisdom to his counseling practice at CBI.  He is competent to work with a variety of counseling issues and with a variety of populations, working primarily from a cognitive-behavioral model of counseling.
  • Yohunnah Woods-Moton, M.A., is a native Chattanoogan and graduate of Richmont Graduate University. She is trained in several forms of therapy, including Motivational Enhancement Therapy. She works with children and parents, but also sees adults and focuses on issues of domestic violence, addiction, and emotional disorders.

“We are thrilled to add more outstanding people to our staff to meet the growing need for quality clinicians at CBI Counseling Center,” said CBI Director, Dr. Tim Sisemore. “These three broaden and deepen our staff to meet this need.  Bo is a seasoned clinician and well-respected member of mental health service community, Ed brings expertise and sensitivity to underserved populations in adolescents and addictions, and Yohunnah offers clients a warm, caring approach to a variety of problems, particularly regarding children where she has specialized training. I am most grateful for the superior quality of clinicians we have gathered here.”
