I focus on improved communication and intimacy between couples and have years of experience helping couples navigate traumatic issues after marital infidelity.
I have been a therapist since 1991 and have had the opportunity to work in varied settings with a diverse population. I approach therapy with a non-judgmental, caring attitude, believing wholeness and healing occurs if individuals, couples and families can acknowledge their strengths as well as learn from their weaknesses. I am a professional who explores how a person operates and navigates within their own family system, with hopes that they find clues to their own particular functioning and modify their behaviors in ways that ultimately lead to health.

Telehealth only. What makes today so different? Today is different because something happened that made you decide, "Hey, I really need to do something about my life. I need to talk to somebody." Hi! I’m Dr. Leslie Ring. Some clients come to me because the bottom just fell out of their lives, a setback at school or work, a betrayal discovered, or the death of a loved one. For others, they just don’t want to keep living like this anymore. Old hurts from childhood or previous relationships keep robbing them of their peace of mind, creativity, fun, and closeness with others.

HOPE HAPPENS HERE!!!...so let’s discover it together. I focus on the WHOLE person; mind, soul, body, & the REASONS that motivate you.

You often feel overburdened, stressed out, and maybe even trapped. You try to stay positive about things, but your resources [emotional and financial] are likely stretched to the breaking point. Your relationships are struggling. It seems that the harder you try to make things work, the worse they seem to get. There's not enough time to do what needs done.

"My partner has cheated on me". It's a refrain Therapists in Athens hear often from clients. Infidelity is breaking a promise to remain faithful to a sexual partner. Affairs, lying, extramarital relationships, cheating and betrayal are all forms of infidelity. Should you stay? Can trust be rebuilt? Can you and should you forgive and move on?

If you're looking for someone to talk to about a partner who has cheated on you, or for an Athens infidelity therapist who can help you recover from an affair and overcome the lying and betrayal, these infidelity therapists in Athens can help with infidelity issues.
