Like in any relationship, communication is paramount to a healthy marriage. Many problems in couples' relationships stem from a lack of or poor communication skills. My approach to couples/marriage counseling is to help the involved individuals to learn healthy communication skills, and to help them learn better ways of relating to and understanding one another. When communication is improved, I then help the couple to address the emotional issues. Sometimes it may be helpful to have individual sessions with one or both parties.

Licensed Professional Counselor and Life Coach

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.

Although all relationships are unique, there are certain issues that I frequently see when doing couple's counseling. These may include: emotional distancing, power struggles, poor communications, jealousy issues, sexual dissatisfaction and infidelity. During counseling, we will work together on identifying and eliminating mutual misunderstandings, and we'll figure out if there are unstated assumptions that can lead to misunderstandings that negatively influence, and if left unchecked, can be detrimental to the relationship's well-being. I will introduce the parties to the important concept of unspoken conflicts, so that we can work on the issues.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Sex Therapist

In 30024 - Nearby to Clarkston.

Couples counseling can help people make more thoughtful decisions about how to navigate a relationship in a healthy way. Each partner must know who they are and what they bring to a relationship, what the roles and rules (interaction patterns) are that they grew up with, and how each partner's history influences how they relate or want to relate (interaction patterns again) as adults. What we have the most power over in a relationship is ourselves and what we contribute to it.

In 30030 - Nearby to Clarkston.

Therapy for Couples is approached in a highly individualized manner--taking into account both client's background, personality factors, religious or spiritual beliefs, and their support system. This approach may include subconscious, unconscious, pre-conscious, &/or conscious techniques. This approach may also involve taking into account personality & emotional factors that are specific to each of the clients. Most importantly, this approach takes into account the use of positive and negative triggers that can prevent disagreements in the first place. It's a highly pro-active, pre-emptive approach. Family, Social, and Personality Dynamics are a key focus at our practice.

Summer Gray, MS, LPC, CIRT

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Imago Therapist

In 30324 - Nearby to Clarkston.

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.

Licenced Professional Counselor

In 30009 - Nearby to Clarkston.

I work with couples who are struggling with their relationship or those who want to strengthen what they already have. Some of the things I help couples with are: developing better communication skills, resolving parenting issues, working thru past resentments, coping with addictions, and better understanding their partners needs so they can have a more empathetic loving relationship. Many couples want more from their relationship but are afraid to start therapy. I help couples discover what they need from their relationship and show them how to get it.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 30062 - Nearby to Clarkston.

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.

Professional Counselor

Whether you’re having specific relationship issues or not, couples counseling can make your relationship better. Most couples only seek help when in a crisis involving infidelity, communication issues, waning intimacy, money, feeling unwanted/unappreciated, in-laws, etc. While these problems may seem insurmountable, with patience and mutual work, it’s possible to resolve them. I provide a safe & supportive space for both partners to explore thoughts and feelings about each other and the relationship and provide practical help to overcome obstacles. Your relationship satisfaction is key to your happiness. Couples counseling can help you regain what you’ve lost or find what you never had.
