In psychotherapy I focus on relationship patterns, even if I am only seeing one member of the couple or family.
I believe that solid, intimate relationships form the basis of a person's well-being and help us define who we are. Our earliest relationships provide the foundation for all others. We often choose partners based either on what we want to replicate or avoid in our families of origin. When problems develop in our closest relationships, we feel out of balance and symptoms, such as anxiety and depression, often occur. I help people understand and change patterns that they learned in old relationships that may be influencing their current ones.

I’d discovered my purpose- helping others find their way to make the most meaning in your life by helping you learn what's meaningful to you, making choices based on that meaning, and being authentic to help one live in a meaningful way. My journey started with having long late-night talks about relationships, love, life transitions, truth, and strength in the face of trauma. From my life experience and stories from my courageous clients, I learned that love, pain, heartbreak, anger, remorse, fear, self-doubt, guilt and forgiveness are universal human languages that transcend cultural, ethnic, and racial divides.

Family Therapy
If you're looking for family therapy in Dunwoody or for a Dunwoody family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Dunwoody using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.
