YOUR RELATIONSHIP NEEDS IMPROVEMENT

Right now, you may feel frustrated. Perhaps you feel disconnected, dissatisfied, misunderstood, hurt, or lonely. Maybe you are struggling with something that recently happened--or that happened a long time ago--and your relationship never recovered. You keep falling back into the same dysfunctional pattern, and you just don't know how to stop it.

LEARN FROM THE BEST

Perhaps you tried other forms of "couples therapy" without success, and you're looking for something more effective.  You may have never tried couples counseling before, but maybe you have reached the point where something needs to change in your relationship, and you don't want to waste your time and money on something that doesn't work.

Then, when you're ready to get started....

STEP 1: Schedule your first appointment by either calling 678-999-3390 to speak with our assistant, Tiffany, or by emailing her at [email protected], or schedule yourself through through the online client scheduling portal at 

STEP 1: Your first session is 80 minutes, and is an in-person interview with both of you and your counselor.

STEP 2: At home on your own, each of you will complete a thorough online assessment separately called "The Relationship Checkup" before your individual meeting. It's 400 items, research-based, and takes about 1 - 1.5 hours to complete. Do not share answers with your partner.

STEP 3: You will then each schedule to meet with your counselor individaully, alone with the counselor to discuss your own perspective on the relationship (one 45 minute session per person, can be on different days).

STEP 3: You will meet your counselor together for the "Feedback Session" where your counselor will discuss their perspective on your relationship, including your strengths and areas for growth as a couple, as well as your individualized treatment plan. Your treatment plan is a road map for how your counselor plans to help you to work on your goals (whether intimacy, communication, conflict, affair recovery, etc.), based on the decades of research by the Gottman Institute.

At Couples Counseling ATL, we use the most scientific, evidence-based interventions, inculding video-recording (to provide you with direct feedback to "watch yourself" later), pulse oximeters (measures your heart rate and blood oxygen level), worksheets (for education), and moment-by-moment feedback and coaching on your interactions.

If you're serious about improving your relationship to build lasting happiness and real connection, give us a call today at 678-999-3390, or you may schedule online at www.counselingatl.com. We look forward to working with you!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

We have the most highly trained, licensed couples therapists in the state of Georgia, with the first and only certified Gottman Method Couples therapist, and several others who have completed all three levels of Gottman method training. Unlike life coaches or relationship coaches, licensed psychotherapists have at least a Master's graduate degree in counseling and have passed licensure exams to prove their competency. We are also required by the state to take ongoing conintuing education in important counseling topics, and to uphold very high ethical and best-practices standards.
