Couples Therapy

Couples-Therapy-North-Atlanta-Couples-Family

Is your marriage or relationship feeling bad?

Are you wondering if this is as good as it gets?

Are you feeling lonely or invisible in your marriage or relationship?

Are you feeling like you don’t know your partner anymore?

Has the talking stopped, tension taken over, arguing increased?

Do you have a roommate, and not the partner you used to have?

All couples go through difficult times. It’s actually normal for marriage to go through difficult times because marriage is like no other relationship. It will force you to look at yourself and make some changes, or be unsatisfied, or divorced. In the words of Dr. David Schnarch, “Marriage is a growing machine for humans. It will ask (force) you to grow up.”

In couples therapy we will help you both identify areas of conflict: where you feel disrespected, uncared for, unimportant, not heard. Couples fall into patterns of relating to one another and often can’t see this, or know how this happened. We will uncover how this happened and help you create new patterns of relating that can improve your relationship. We will explore where and how each of you can take responsibility for yourself. This can be life changing for you and your marriage when you see your responsibility is to take better care of yourself and stop blaming each other for the marriage feeling “bad”.…

Sex Therapy

sex-therapy-north-atlanta-couples

Are you dissatisfied with your sexual relationship?

Have you or your partner lost interest in sex?

Do you and your partner have different levels of desire?

Has sex become a frequent topic of discussion or arguments, or is it just not talked about at all?

Are you worried about your own sexual functioning?

It is not unusual for couples to experience some sexual challenges at some point. When sex is good, it can be a natural and enjoyable part of a relationship. But when sex is problematic, or non-existent, it can erode the overall quality of the relationship. Resentment, worry, anger, fear can seep over into other aspects of interactions; conversations tip-toe around the topic, or explode into anger and blame; sometimes even expressions of physical affection disappear.

When a relationship that was once warm and satisfying turns distant and frustrating, partners are left wondering whether it will ever get better. Couples try to solve these problems on their own, but with little understanding of why the problems have occurred, or what to do to change things, efforts often lead to further frustration, disappointment and blame.

Sex therapy is talk therapy that is focused on sexual issues. It is an opportunity to consult with an expert on sexual problems that can interfere with sexual satisfaction. As therapists, we can not only help you understand why these problems are …

Is someone in your family struggling with substance abuse?

Is your family reeling from the fallout of divorce?

Is your family struggling to adjust to some typical life transitions, like relocating, children growing older, graduating from high school?

Every family goes through difficult times. Some of these times will be traumatic and feel like you’ll never recover, such as a death, divorce, or a loved one with substance abuse. Death can be particularly traumatic for a family. Whether it’s due to illness, an accident, or old age, loosing a loved one can be very hard to accept. We will help you through the grieving process. We are here to gently guide you through your pain with compassion and empathy.

Divorce can feel much like a death and families need a time of grieving when this happens. Coming together, mom and the kids, dad and kids, whatever your family now is, grieving what you were, and moving on to your family’s new configuration is an important step in healing.
