Your overall relationship system within your family is important to decipher to help bring about change. Problems that crop up can often seem to be focused on one individual but actually this has more to do with the relational networks, the make-up of others' personalities, where we stand in the system and how we function in that place. Thus, I will help your family to understand its present structure and how that is maintaining the problem situation. From there we will use different techniques tailored to your unique family to help you put in place a new structure that relieves the symptoms and functions in a more healthy way.

Family Therapist

Katherine Hammons, Licensed Professional Counselor

Licensed Professional Counselor

I approach Family Therapy from a systems perspective. I encourage accountability for all members to recognize their part in the unhelpful patterns being played out within the home. I provide tools and techniques that are helpful for changing the parts of "the system" that are not working, while connecting positively with each member in the process.

Family Therapist

Kathleen Shack, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Mediator, Coach

3534 Old Milton Parkway, Alpharetta, Georgia

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.

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,

4895 Windward Parkway, Suite 203, Alpharetta, Georgia

I limit my family therapy, including grief therapy and counseling for caretakers to when there is a disruption of the family unit due to illness or injury, or the death of a family member. Early in my career I worked both in the areas of psycho-oncology and with the adjustment reactions of both family members and significant others to spinal cord and other severe and debilitating injuries in family members or other people they loved and cared about.

Family Therapist

Renee Willis, NCC, LPC, RPT, CAMS

Holy Spirit led Psychotherapist

Do you feel like your family has gotten out of control and you do not know what to do about it? Is there a lack of communication, anger, or disrespect between family members? Allow me to provide a space of freedom where you and your family can come to explore struggles and find obtainable solutions. There will be no finger pointing or blame, just me shedding light on perspectives maybe not seen.

Family Therapist

Greg Griffin, MA, BCPC

Board Certified Pastoral Counselor, Ordained Minister

3827 Roswell Road, Marietta, Georgia

No safer place. No better time. Because family is not an organization but an organism, when one part is hurting or out of sorts, the entire organism is affected. It's easy to play the blame game, and attempt to segment off a family member's issue from the lives of the others. Like it or not, we are all connected, and all have a part in the health and solution of the problem or trouble. I can help you come together to use the collective resources of each family member to benefit the whole, and help with the healing. Family is perhaps the greatest shaper of our identity and values, and therefore is worth the investment and priority to keep it as healthy and vibrant as possible.

Family Therapist

Cindy McKee, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

1585 Old Norcross Road, Lawrenceville, Georgia

I have many parents that bring their child to me and in essence say "please fix my child". It usually involves the entire family working together to fix the problem that is showing, which is typically through the child. The child is really saying "please help me and my family" with their behavior. Family Systems Theory supports this belief and I have seen it work with people that are willing to make positive changes dozens and maybe even hundreds of times.

Licensed Associate Professional Counselor

1640 Powers Ferry Rd, Building 16, Marietta, Georgia

One individual alone can be extremely complex and difficult to understand. What happens when you have a number of complex people living together under one roof? Absolute chaos! Through family therapy, I help family members to understand each other better and even more importantly, to appreciate how each individual contributes to the family dynamic. Individuals evolve and change overtime and in turn, the family system experiences dramatic shifts as well. This can often be confusing! With the help of a family therapist, your family does not need to struggle alone. A patient and gentle objective listener can educate, guide, and assist you in overcoming
