When it comes to children or adolescent therapy at Georgia Outreach, the parent and therapist work as a team. The goal being that the therapist will serve as a resource to parents, as extra support in helping children during transitions. Georgia Outreach strives to provide an environment that children are eager to return to.

Georgia Outreach also offers couples counseling, whether you’re married or dating. Such therapy can be useful even before there’s ever an issue. “If you are having a “great” relationship you can make it better,” said Georgia Outreach therapist Ashley Richbourg. “If you find the right therapist, they will not point out what is wrong with you, but should focus on what is working and how to make the positives shine even more.”

During talk therapy for individuals, the therapist provides a non-judgmental, let-it-all-out, retreat-type session for individuals.

For SouthernMamas readers, Georgia Outreach offers a $20 discount per session on any private pay client who starts sessions in February. Mention you read about Georgia Outreach on SouthernMamas to receive the discount. Georgia Outreach is a SouthernMamas sponsor.
