Do You Know How to be a Couple? Couples Counselors and Therapists in Atlanta, GA
Thank you for saving my marriage. We are happier now than we have ever been!”
Derrik and Suzanne have been living together for about a year. For the first few months, everything was awesome. The way Suzanne would leave the TV on and fall asleep on the couch was seen as cute. Derrik’s T-shirt lying crumpled on the floor became the perfect thing to throw on while cleaning.
But recently, their idiosyncrasies are starting to grate on each other. An article of clothing not in the hamper is now considered lazy. The late nights watching TV seems like impenetrable distance. Where did things go wrong? Their relationship used to be carefree. They used to look forward to spending a night in together, but now they’re rarely in the same room. Suzanne was about to start “just looking” on Craigslist at apartments, but came across an article in a local business magazine about a brand new counseling practice. Would counseling make a difference?
Don’t Postpone Your Happiness
Couples counseling can be helpful to each and every committed couple. Research shows that many couples will put off therapy or counseling for years before seeking help. However, there is no need to postpone your happiness.

- Make thoughtful, informed choices with a scientifically-based evaluation of your relationship
- Build on hidden strengths within your relationship
- Experience feeling deeply understood by your partner
- Develop ways to create a sacred bond that withstands external demands

Atlanta, GA Couples Counseling is for All Couples
During a lasting relationship, it is normal to face challenges and stressors, as well as many important decisions and growth points. Sometimes couples discover that their ability to communicate and relate deeply has become impaired. Couples counseling can be a way to open up lines of communication and move towards a meaningful understanding of deeper issues. This understanding can, in turn, facilitate new possibilities for resolving difficulties and can intensify the depth of your connection.
Whether you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, heterosexual or transgender, newly dating or in a committed domestic partnership, we aim to offer a safe and confidential setting in which to explore and grow.
We also work with people who are ending a marriage, partnership, or a long term relationship. Therapy and counseling can help people going through this painful process to overcome emotional difficulties and develop the confidence to rebuild their lives.
Here are some of the difficulties that can be solved in couples counseling. Do you recognize any of these?
- Communication problems/frequent arguments
- Overburdened schedules/disconnection
Couples counseling usually leads to feelings of warmth, connection, increased happiness and overall improved wellness. Sadly, leaving difficulties unresolved often results in worsening strain and decreased health in emotional, social, physical, vocational and financial health domains. Wellness means identifying and overcoming obstacles, not ignoring them and hoping they’ll just fix themselves.
The problem for most couples isn’t that they’ve experienced distress, but that they go without asking for help, Call today and we can help.”
