About

I specialize in counseling with couples and families through their life journey. Whether you are a new couple looking for tools to build a solid foundation or a couple in crisis looking for a life raft, I am here for you. I am a Certified Gottman Couples Therapist. There are many stages a family goes through in their journey from being a pre-marital couple through retirement and beyond. I am equipped to guide you through these transitions. If your family is transitioning through divorce or are a newly blended family, I help all family members heal while finding balance and harmony within the new family structure.
If your partner tells you things aren't going well, pay attention! Don't wait until it's too late! I specialize in couples counseling and am a Certified Gottman Couples Therapist. I aim to help couples build a stronger relationship and develop healthier ways to cope with issues. Research-based interventions help couples reach their goals.
www.FamilySolutionsCounselingGA.com has information about my work as a Counselor, Mediator, Divorce Coach and Child Specialist. I also work with children. The interaction between children's problems and their families is always complex. In all cases, children and families heal faster when they work together.
