Dr. Georgann Norton has been a licensed psychologist for 20 years. Last year, she opened a practice in Naples. Now she is excited to announce the opening of her office on Marco Island. Georgann works with adults who suffer from depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, OCD, grief and divorce, among other issues.

“I love what I do and I knew that if I came here full time, I would continue my work in this great community,” says Georgann.

“People think that down here in the sun and beauty of Florida, we don’t have problems,” says Georgann. “The truth is that sometimes life is very challenging for a variety of reasons. We all go through difficult times. Sometimes it’s overwhelming and we need to just sit and talk to someone in a comfortable and secure environment who will help us sort out these issues, help us see options and ways to change. To go into therapy can seem daunting but once you pick up that phone and go to your first appointment, you realize, wow, this is going to be helpful!”

It was 20 years ago Georgann and husband Tom Norton stepped on Marco Island beach on vacation and knew this is where they eventually would live full time. But they were younger, had lives to go back to and a child to raise yet. They came back each year on vacation, eventually buying timeshare weeks. When that wasn’t enough, they found a condo to buy. Each year they came to Marco for 4-5 weeks. Eventually that was not enough and they moved here full time last year. Her husband Tom just left his job as a vice president at Chase Bank in Chicago after 38 years.

In addition to her psychology work, her experience includes 15 years in business as a vice president in advertising and director of human resources for corporations in Chicago before she went back to school for her doctorate in psychology. She feels her past business experience has been helpful when working with people out in the workforce who face so much stress every day. Georgann was also on medical staff at Advocate Christ Hospital for years before she left the Chicago area.

Her Marco Island office is in the SunTrust building at 950 N Collier, 4th floor. For our seniors, Georgann takes Medicare insurance. Her telephone number is 239-261-1514. To find out more, go to www.nortontherapy.com.

Sometimes, going through a difficult time alone is not enough. Give Georgann a call. She has been making a difference in other’s lives for 20 years
