Benita A. Esposito, MA, Licensed Professional Counselor

Licensed Professional Counselor and Life Coach

In 30328 - Nearby to Avondale Estates.

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.

As an Imago therapist, I see your relationship as my client. I teach you powerful skills and processes that will increase the effectiveness of your communication, help each of you to understand what you bring into the relationship as an individual, and help you to make deep lasting change. I have found Imago therapy to effectively and quickly help you to navigate the struggles you are having and to help you to reconnect in a deep, meaningful way and to put romance back into your relationship. For those who are just beginning their relationship, Imago therapy is an excellent tool to teach you how to understand and navigate the inevitable issues that couples bump into.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 30033 - Nearby to Avondale Estates.

In working with couples, I encourage each partner to stop blaming, understand how they are being triggered by each other, learn how to stop arguing, and most importantly, how to hold onto their individuality while staying lovingly connected to each other. I also specialize in divorce support and recovery therapy when it has been determined by you and/or your partner that the relationship/marriage is over.

Summer Gray, MS, LPC, CIRT

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Imago Therapist

In 30324 - Nearby to Avondale Estates.

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.

The purpose of couples therapy is to support couples at various stages of their relationship (dating, engaged, married, or anywhere in between). I utilize an integrative approach of evidence-based therapy modalities to help couples build stronger and healthier relationships that includes Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy as well as other therapy models to provide relief for couples. I consider my practice open and accepting to all, and I emphasize respect for individual diversity to include of sexual, gender, and relational diversity, such as sexual and affectional identity/orientation, transgender issues, and polyamory.

Jeffree Gars, LCSW, DC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 30307 - Nearby to Avondale Estates.

Couples therapy is all about creating the time and space for each partner to take a self-reflecting look at the relationship and how it is evolving. I enjoy working with couples whether there is a specific crisis or just working through communication issues. In couples therapy the relationship revolves around each partners commitment to learn how to hear each other and how to express themselves. When a couple invites me in to their relationship challenges I consider that a sacred space. My job is to not take sides and assist in helping to create authentic communication between partners. I do whatever I can to help bring the couple closer together and mend their relationship issues.

Rich Oswald, MA, LPC
Couples Counselor

Rich Oswald, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 30078 - Nearby to Avondale Estates.

Relationships are fulfilling and difficult. I believe marriage is the greatest tool we have to help ourselves mature. We often don't look at our partner as a reflection of our growth areas. We see them as hampering us and making our life difficult and full of pain. When I work with couples, my overarching focus is on improving the relationship. The relationship, however, is built on two people. We must address each person's heart to improve individual health so the relationship can get healthier. No one person is the problem. You may think that, but I will show you otherwise. If you want to do the work, your relationship can improve.

Couples Counselor

Mariann Mamberg, MSW LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 30009 - Nearby to Avondale Estates.

Marriage counseling/therapy, couples counseling/therapy, or relationship counseling/therapy, whatever you call it, it still revolves around the difficulties between the partners in a committed relationship. There can be many pitfalls: faithfulness, finances, dishonesty, child rearing, etc., plus simply failing to understand each other's needs by failing to communicate. Not all relationships are meant to succeed, but with more than 20 years experience, I have had great success at helping people the best course for themselves and their partners.

Hope Hailey, LPC

licensed professional counselor

In 30339 - Nearby to Avondale Estates.

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.

Couples counseling includes the process of exploring problems or areas of concern that impact the relationship. Couples will receive problem solving strategies, effective communication skills, conflict resolution skills, modeling, role playing and various techniques. Couples will work through their core issues to determine if the problems in their relationship can be resolved and if they will continue to have a healthy relationship.

Kara McDaniel, PhD, LPC, NCC, DCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 30022 - Nearby to Avondale Estates.

As part of my practice, I have the wonderful opportunity of conducting couples, marital, and pre-marital therapy. Being in a relationship can be extremely rewarding and fulfilling. With this said, it can also present many challenges. While creating an environment in which each person feels respected, listened to, understood, and safe, emotionally and physically, I help couples through the process of understanding and respecting one another's perspective, to learn ways in which to effectively communicate and to resolve conflict, to build intimacy and a sense of connectedness, and to heal from any past and/or present hurts, such as but not limited to infidelity.

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?
