In 30005 - Nearby to Stone Mountain.

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.

Just as a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, every individual will only be as successful as the weakest part of their life. In this way, the relationship health within the family plays a key role in the happiness and success of each individual. Family therapy benefits each individual by improving interactions and relationships for everyone. This can be especially useful when facing depression, substance abuse, divorce, grief, chronic illness and even food issues or everyday issues such as communication, conflict or behavioral problems. Some emotional pain is as much a part of the family as a whole as it is to the individual and thus is best addressed in family therapy.

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,

Therapy for Families is approached in a highly individualized manner--taking into account the 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 the client. Most importantly, this approach takes into account the use of positive and negative triggers that can prevent an explosive reaction in the first place. It's a highly pro-active, pre-emptive approach. Family Dynamics are a key focus at our practice.

I work with family counseling when my primary client is the adolescent / teen. In adolescent therapy family dynamics are often critical for an adolescent's issue to be fully addressed. Therapy with adolescents / teens are one of my practice specialties. Adolescence can be a difficult stage in life as they are going through their process of “individuation”. Adolescents face increased academic and social pressures just at a time when they are often less open to parental advice. Parents often struggle with dealing with these changes. For effective therapy it is paramount that the adolescent and the psychotherapist have a good rapport.

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Milton / Alpharetta, with more than 20 years experience, I understand the dynamics of how the actions, feelings and moods of one individual within a family can negatively affect all members of that larger group. In family therapy, I use a number of techniques, including cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and interpersonal therapy, to help the affected person deal with his/her issues with the support of other family members who come to understand the situations that drive the problem and how to help the individual cope with them. For Family Therapy to work best, it is important to have the cooperation, attentiveness and willingness of all members of the family. If you believe your family may benefit from open and honest...(view profile to read more)

As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I utilize Imago concepts and tools to teach family members powerful communication techniques. While using these skills, I guide families to understand each other at a deeper level. This creates the space for family members to interact with each other in a more respectful, caring and nurturing manner. These techniques are very different than conventional family therapy techniques and may or may not be suited to your specific family issues. Imago is very suited to families where members are not feeling heard, supported or respected. Please call to discuss your particular situation.

I enjoy working with families and believe when one member chooses to do the dance of relationships differently other members will be forced to change their own steps. I look at the family system and not any one person as the identified patient. Family members can learn to have a voice and become healthier individually which contributes to a healthy family system.

Family is like an ecosystem. Each part interacts with the other and each part plays a unique role. There are rules, whether explicit or implicit, that are to be followed. Not all these rules may be healthy. We grow up in a family, and most times, join another in our adult lives. What we were trained to do in our original family, and what others were trained to do in theirs, comes out in our present relationships. I work with families where they are. I consider all the above when teaming up with family. So I address the individuals, the group, the past and the present with an aim toward a healthier future.

Family is where we garner meaning in our lives, as well as a sense of history. Family should contain our most satisfying and happy relationships, but often families are fraught with anger, worry, and sadness. Negative family patterns are often passed on to our own children as we raise them. Family therapy can help you identify these negative patterns and learn new ways of relating to our loved ones. In family therapy with me, you will learn how your negative behaviors came into being, how they affect others around you, and what you can do to change them, to create a newly crafted sense of family.
