When families are broken or distant the resulting hurt can often feel unbearable. Rifts in relationships may seem permanent, but the truth is that there is hope, forgiveness and restoration available for anyone seeking it! Our approach in family therapy focuses on repairing and restoring the family as a whole. It is never too late for this restoration to take place!

Your overall relationship system within your family is important to decipher to help bring about change. Problems that crop up can often seem to be focused on one individual but actually this has more to do with the relational networks, the make-up of others' personalities, where we stand in the system and how we function in that place. Thus, I will help your family to understand its present structure and how that is maintaining the problem situation. From there we will use different techniques tailored to your unique family to help you put in place a new structure that relieves the symptoms and functions in a more healthy way.

Licensed Marital & Family Therapist
Family means something different to most people. Ideally, family is who we share our lives with, offer love and support, and grow as individuals and a unit. It is not reality that this is successful and struggle free at all times. Families face hurdles and barriers, and can explore ways that these can be overcome together. Whether there are everyday conflicts, lifestyle differences, or misunderstandings and anger, chronic family stress can lead to lasting negative effects. Whatever the source of the conflict, with cooperation of the members, relationships and interactions can be strengthened and challenges can be faced.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Mediator, Coach
3534 Old Milton Parkway, Alpharetta, Georgia 30005
I counsel couples, children and their families through their life journeys. There are many transitions a family goes through in their journey: Pre-marital couple; newly married; a family with a newborn or children of various ages; a family divorcing or remarrying; single parenthood; mental illness; career changes; empty-nesters; retirees; adult caregivers of their parents; grieving the loss of a loved one. Whichever stage you and your family are in, I am equipped to guide you through these life transitions to make the adjustment to them smooth and healthy.

Licensed Professional Counselor

I approach Family Therapy from a systems perspective. I encourage accountability for all members to recognize their part in the unhelpful patterns being played out within the home. I provide tools and techniques that are helpful for changing the parts of "the system" that are not working, while connecting positively with each member in the process.

Holy Spirit led Psychotherapist
Do you feel like your family has gotten out of control and you do not know what to do about it? Is there a lack of communication, anger, or disrespect between family members? Allow me to provide a space of freedom where you and your family can come to explore struggles and find obtainable solutions. There will be no finger pointing or blame, just me shedding light on perspectives maybe not seen.

There are many reasons that we engage Families in therapy. Sometimes there is 1) a specific problem to be solved (which school does the middle schooler attend next year?) or 2) a pattern to be changed (communication, family cohesion, playing together, etc.) or 3) a dynamic to be restructured (power dynamics in the family are off, someone is sick, behavior problems are hijacking the family) or 4) an issue to be processed (trauma, affairs, emotions, hurt, loss, etc.). Sometimes families need to learn a skill and other times they need someone to walk with them and help to mediate conflict and communication. We meet with families for short term needs as well as longer term solutions,
