Melissa Lester, LPC, Licensed Professional Counselor in Decatur, GA


Relationships can be challenging. You may go through phases where you feel like you are not on the same page. Maybe you continue to find yourselves repeating the same arguments and unhealthy patterns. Together, we will work to identify the underlying issues while deepening your understanding of yourself and your partner - all the while learning and integrating skills enabling you to communicate in a healthier and more effective way.
The process of couples counseling is unique for each couple. At times it may feel worse before it feels better as we begin to process difficult and sometimes painful experiences and emotions - much as it does in individual therapy. It is important both partners are open and willing to commit to the work. My goal is to provide you with an open, genuine, and collaborative setting where you can find healing and discover what moving forward looks like for you.
