"We mistakenly assume that if our partners love us they will react and behave in certain ways ~ the ways we react and behave when we love someone." ~ John Gray I've been married 40 years and fully understand the pitfalls and detours of committed relationships. With advanced training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), I'm dedicated to helping couples find their way back to each other. I help you stop the dance of blame, distancing, and mutual hurt. We'll work on skill-building, adjusting expectations, learning new communication techniques, and healing deep wounds and betrayals.

Many people secretly believe that their opinion is always "right." Then they enter into a relationship and this deep-seated belief is challenged by a partner or spouse who also secretly believes that his/her opinion is always right. This causes major problems. That's where therapy comes into play. I believe that the bedrock of couples counseling is clear and effective communication. For some odd reason, it seems as though communication is a lost art, leaving couples feeling frustrated and alone. People feel as though they're not being heard and their needs aren't being met. I help couples understand each other deeply and articulate their feelings to one another effectively.

Parenting is the most challenging and most important job anyone who is a parent will ever have. There are no training manuals handed out at the birth of a child, however! There are a lot of books out there to read but it can all feel very overwhelming. So many approaches and philosophies.... In the meantime the stresses of parenting can get the best of anyone. To help bridge the gap- Thrive Counseling works hand-in-hand with parents through Parent Consultation where we provide coaching for parents through seminars, support groups and private consultation. In addition, we also provide counseling and psychotherapy support for parents in learning how to deal with the challenges of parenthood and how....

Licensed Professional Counselor

For couples, I individually assess each person, in order for me to get acquainted with their individual history and issues. Then I assist each client with identifying and describing the 3 main issues in the relationship and to rank them by importance. We then start with the top issue for each person, as both learn and practice compassionate communication and win-win conflict resolution skills. Se habla Español.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Distance Credentialed Counselor, Certified Hypnotherapist, Gottman Leader

In 30328 - Nearby to Smyrna.

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.

In 30022 - Nearby to Smyrna.

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.

Couples Counselor

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 30009 - Nearby to Smyrna.

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.

Cindy Hoerig, LPC, NCC

Licenced Professional Counselor

In 30009 - Nearby to Smyrna.

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 30324 - Nearby to Smyrna.

Relationships take work, commitment, sacrifice, communication, and compromise. None of this is easy! And when you and your partner don't see eye to eye or have differing values, this becomes even more stressful and frustrating. I can help facilitate open communication between you and your partner to help you understand the root of your problems, how they are negatively affecting your relationship, and how to work through and resolve them. It's a process and takes time, but worth the effort if the relationship is important to you.

Sarah Bryan, Board Certified Christian Counselor

Board Cert. Christian Counselor, CTC

In 30005 - Nearby to Smyrna.

Couples therapy is my passion! Relationships and all the dynamics that go along with them truly amaze me. Couples in any stage of a relationship can benefit from new perspectives and proven tools that can increase effective communication, solve problems before they start, and nurture love and respect toward one another. Restoring broken marriages and relationships is achievable. Often only one partner in the marriage or relationship is willing to come. That is normal and is often a springboard to amazing growth and health for both the individual and his or her relationships. Call for an appointment. (770)548-3034

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 30307 - Nearby to Smyrna.

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.

Hope Hailey, LPC

licensed professional counselor

In 30339 - Nearby to Smyrna.

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.

Licensed Psychologist

In 30305 - Nearby to Smyrna.

Relationships are the hardest thing we do. Intimate relationships are often the most desired thing in our lives, and yet they also are often the source of great pain. It is this pain that brings people to my door. Intimacy requires vulnerability. Managing the vulnerabilities that exist in a relationship is frankly a huge task, and one we are not taught. With couples, we often work to find healthier and more conscious ways to manage vulnerabilities and challenges without destroying the relationship in the process.

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.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

In 30301 - Nearby to Smyrna.

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?
