Patricia Lyman, Ph.D.

Fully Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Athens

My doctoral dissertation focused on couples communication, and have worked with couples throughout my career. My lengthy exposure to strategic therapy at Mental Research Institute in California has had a major influence on my approach, although I have studied most of the strategies for working with couples. These include Gottman, Imago, behavioral, and emotion-focused, among others. Teaching communication strategies is central to all of these. I believe that understanding our early attachment relationships is important as unresolved issues surface in long term connections. Focus on emotion is critical as people often have difficulty connecting their deepest desires with expression.
