Couples counseling usually focuses on finding shared goals for the relationship as well as understanding styles and barriers to communication. I use something called the speaker/listener technique which creates empathic listening and increases connectedness and intimacy among couples. I also believe we are a product of our upbringing and many times have dysfunctional barriers to effective communication.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

Many clients say that I have a spiritual gift for counseling couples. There's nothing more gratifying than turning around a marriage that almost ended in divorce. I use “Emotionally Focused Therapy” by Sue Johnson and “Gottman Method Couples Therapy” by John and Julie Gottman. Both methods have been researched over 40 years. Now we know exactly what creates masters and disasters of marriage. Statistics show that 75-85% of marriages are saved when using these two therapies. If prior couples therapy did not work for you, I recommend you see a counselor trained in these two methods. Read my educational articles and client stories on my website: www.Flourishing-Lives.com.

Maintaining an intimate relationship is one of the most rewarding - and one of the most challenging endeavors in life. No one can bring you more joy - or more aggravation - than your partner! I give couples valuable tools to improve their communication skills, set healthy boundaries, ask for what they need, and make choices that support their relationship rather than undermine it. Some of the problems I address in counseling are: Conflict, Communication, Trust Issues, Finances, Sex, Dealing with In-Laws, Intimacy, Infidelity, Infertility & Adoption, Power Struggles, Negotiating & Making Decisions, Balancing Time & Priorities, Creating a Shared Vision, and Premarital counseling.

No safer place. No better time. God created us for relationship. The more intimate the relationship, the more work it takes to keep it healthy. I can help you work through the inevitable challenges that arise utilizing therapy techniques designed to strengthen communication and listening skills, which is often the root issue. I am a certified administrator of the well-respected Prepare-Enrich couples assessment tool, which can be used for couples who are seriously dating or have been married for a long while. Once communication is strengthened, the couple can better work through the issues they may have together.

Relationships can be difficult. But I believe even the most troubled relationships can learn to thrive again. Certified in marriage counselings, my approach to is first to instill hope in the couple that things can be different. We look at the issues facing their relationship; as well as the limitations each of them bring in the way they can give and receive love. We also review their families of origin where they originally learned what love and relationships are about. And once we have developed stability in the relationship we move to developing a roadmap that helps them learn to reconnect.

Summer is a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist (CIRT) and a member of Georgia Regional Imago Therapists (GRITS). Imago, which is the Latin word for image, is a highly effective method of couples' counseling. Summer is passionate about helping couples restore and improve their connection to one another, especially challenging in times of transition or crisis. A healthy marriage is what we envision when we get married, but too often we don't get the help we need when we are stuck in unhealthy patterns of relating. Or, just as often, unhealthy patterns of not relating. Summer encourages couples to reconnect in therapy, providing a safe, compassionate and challenging place to do this.
