Inspiring Conversations with Mark Weiss

Today we’d like to introduce you to Mark Weiss.

Hi Mark, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
My original focus was on Social Psychology as it applied to social issues. I pursued community development with teenagers and young adults, focusing on communication skills, and effective tools for personal growth and management.

Over the years, I have developed a full-time practice in Los Angeles, California; Columbia, South Carolina; Atlanta, Georgia; and Memphis, Tennessee. My reputation as an innovator in the field of Social Psychology led me to being the president of Weiss, Weber, and Halpern, a medical public relations firm in Atlanta, where I developed a state-of-the-art video feedback approach for increasing self-awareness at management levels.

This culminated in my doctoral thesis on the effects of video feedback on genuineness and interracial encounters. In over 30 years, I have spent practicing in Memphis, Tennessee, my practice has flourished.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
In the pursuit of personal and professional growth, I have worked in maximum-security prisons and community grassroots movements, including involvement in Freedom Summer in 1964. My own personal health issues have been an obstacle for me. For over 60 years, I have dealt with Psoriatic Arthritis and have additionally had two near-death experiences. Certainly tested my mettle.

Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know?
I have vast experience in assisting people with personal and professional transformation. I specialize in Marriage and Family Therapy and Executive Development.

Some things that set me apart from others are my familiarity and expertise in a vast array of therapeutic approaches, my reputation as being focused and direct, and my therapeutic approach.

I offer clear pathways to more effective living and working. I use techniques such as Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) for post-traumatic stress disorder and Internal Family Systems (IFS), a radical new approach to showing clients the impact of their own inner dialog.

We’d be interested to hear your thoughts on luck and what role, if any, you feel it’s played for you?
I met my beautiful wife, Nancy, by chance. I was lucky to be in the right place at the right time, and we were married when I was 73. We have currently been married for 7 and a half years.

    I have known Mark for nearly 20 years.
    He has always been a kind and attentive listener.
    But he has also – lovingly – shown me the fallacies of my beliefs, and suggested that I look at them, and change them if I so desire.
    If you want a space to be intimate without being judged, you should see Mark.
    I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    I met Mark in Atlanta and was always in a hurry to get things done. Mark showed me how to slow down and prioritize my goals. He became a mentor and a true friend. I am fortunate to have met Mark and utilize the things he has shown me when crisis erupts.
