Why Choose Garrett Counseling for Your Mental Health or Relationship Concerns?

Each family unit is different and experiences a variety of stressors. Our Alabama counseling team offers several support services for couples and families. Our desire is for couples and families to experience healthy relationships with one another and to provide support when those relationships hit a bump in the road.

We believe in the power of play! While often play therapy may be thought of as a tool beneficial for children, we have seen first hand how play is beneficial for children and adults to heal and become more mentally well. All counselors on the Garrett Counseling team are Level II trained in Sandtray, a form of play therapy, for working with children and adults.

Garrett Counseling is an ADHD Certified Clinical Services Provider (ADHD-CCSP). This ADHD certification provides us with special training in working with clients and their families with ADHD and enables us to provide ADHD assessments for children and adults.

How Can Garrett Counseling Help You?

Our Alabama counseling team offers a variety of therapeutic options in working with couples and families. These options include:

Couples Counseling

At Garrett Counseling, we recognize that all relationships are unique, and sometimes one or both partners seek outside counseling to help navigate challenges and transitions in the relationship. These transitions can come in the form of major life changes (from experiencing the joy of a new baby to caring for aging parents), desiring to increase communication and intimacy, striving to blend two families together in harmony, or dealing with a difficult child in the home.

 

Family Counseling

Our team knows that no family unit is exactly the same. Each one is a unique social system and has its own structure and patterns of communication. The beliefs, values, and individual personalities, along with the influence of extended family members, make up the dynamic system of a family unit. Individuals who participate in family counseling sessions often feel more understood and therefore can encourage and support one another through a range of concerns like co-parenting, sibling conflict, marital discord, parenting struggles, chronic illness of a family member, a challenging child, and blended family struggles.

 

Marriage Counseling

Marriage counseling can help partners develop deeper, closer relationships and help with difficulties they may be facing. Marriage counseling allows partners to have a safe space and the guidance of a counselor to work through communication difficulties, overcoming an affair, and more.

 

Premarital Counseling

Premarital counseling is a unique type of couples counseling in which the goal is to provide a solid foundation for couples getting ready to enter into a marriage. Partners will be able to work through difficult topics before they become a problem.
