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.

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
2751 Buford Highway, Suite 204, Atlanta, Georgia 30324
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.

Couples therapy can seem intimidating – one reason why people often wait too long to talk to a therapist. In my experience, when couples therapy isn’t successful, it is usually because the couple has waited far too long to give it a try. Remember, couples counseling is an investment in what matters most in your life. A therapist isn’t a judge, and neither of you is on trial. As with other forms of therapy, the right commitment and the right therapist at the right time can make all the difference. I have worked with all sorts of couples for more than 25 years; contact me if I you’d like to talk about your situation and whether therapy can help.

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

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?

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.

Maintaining an intimate relationship is one of the most rewarding - and one of the most challenging endeavors in life. No one can bring you more joy - or more aggravation - than your partner! I give couples valuable tools to improve their communication skills, set healthy boundaries, ask for what they need, and make choices that support their relationship rather than undermine it. Some of the problems I address in counseling are: Conflict, Communication, Trust Issues, Finances, Sex, Dealing with In-Laws, Intimacy, Infidelity, Infertility & Adoption, Power Struggles, Negotiating & Making Decisions, Balancing Time & Priorities, Creating a Shared Vision, and Premarital counseling.
