Are you feeling alone in your marriage? Have you wondered if you are a priority to your partner? Do you feel you can't share with your spouse? Counselors at Johns Creek and Alpharetta Counseling are trained to help you find connection again, to learn to communicate, to understand your partner, and in turn feel understood.
WHAT TO EXPECT: Couples Therapy includes coming together with a neutral party to discuss how to improve your relationship. The counselors at JCAC see your relationship as their client rather than each individual. We are not going to take sides, or tell one or the other how to change. Our role is to help you define your goals and dreams for your marriage, understand barriers, and collaboratively work through them to make connecting to each other easy again. Below you will see multiple styles of couple's therapy that we offer at Johns Creek and Alpharetta Counseling. Learn a little about each to see which one will fit you best.
JCAC's mission is to serve the community as a whole. In that light, we are trained and competent to work with couples of all race, gender, faith, and sexual orientation. This includes mix race couples, LGBTQ+ couples, and we offer faith based couples counseling. If you want a counselor that offers one of these specialties, please let us know when you call!
Questions? Not sure how to get started? Call us at 404-834-2363, or schedule a time to for us to call you. We can determine who is the right fit for you, help give you resources, and schedule your first counseling session. We look forward to speaking with you!
EFT helps couples by assisting them to be open, attuned, and responsive to each other allowing them to reestablish their emotional connection. An essential element in healthy marriages is emotional responsiveness: trust in your ability to have emotional communication during high stress.

Knowing that you can turn towards each other when it really matters. Having this is deeper than “I know they love me.” It is “I know in my bones they are there for me, they are my friend, they have my back, I know we are a team.” Couples Therapy helps couples learn how they are getting stuck (feeling alone or not important when you need your partner the most), assist to communicate the genuine need, and help the other partner hear it in a non-threatening way. Counselors at Johns Creek and Alpharetta Counseling are trained to provide EFT. We can help you overcome barriers to communication, connection, and intimacy. We can help it be simple again. That hole in your heart can feel full again.
Gottman Method Couple’s Therapy can help by assessing your strengths and areas of growth. This approach is a very insight oriented that can help you reach for connection and your partner understand your need, build fondness and admiration for each other, create shared goals, help to turn toward each other during stress, see each other in a positive perceptive (assume the best of each other rather than the worst), and building the marital friendship. Our counselors are trained to offer Gottman Method Couple’s Therapy and to help you during an argument, shape the conversation to constructive rather than destructive, and to foster open communication.
