Establish & Restore Healthy Relationships

Do you long to have more fulfilling relationships with others?

Is something getting in the way – keeping you stuck – from truly living life and experiencing joy?

Is pain from your past or worries about the future making it hard to enjoy the present?

If any of these statements sound like you, I want you to know there is hope!

Hello, I'm Liz Fava

I’m Liz Fava, a Licensed Professional Counselor in Atlanta, GA (and self-described “Relationship Therapist”). My passion is for seeing individuals and couples establish and restore healthy relationships, and helping people live their lives to the fullest.

I do that through a variety of approaches. I’m holistic, looking at all aspects of your life: mind, body and spirit. I’m trained in the Gottman Method for working with couples, an approach that is research driven and scientifically based for how to make relationships work. I’m eclectic, drawing from years of my own clinical training, graduate work, and experience. I’m a learner, continuing to research and attend trainings, and “geek-out” on resources to enhance my therapy skills.

Another thing you need to know about me? I truly believe your life and your relationships can get better! It will take work, and some time, but it ABSOLUTELY is possible, and I’m here to help you make that happen.

I view my work with clients as being very collaborative. I believe you bring a lot to the table already, and I want to walk with you through this process. My clients appreciate that I offer a ton of support and make them feel safe in therapy, yet don’t shy away from giving direct feedback and ideas, or challenging a thought or belief that might be getting in the way of progress. I like to hear about your relationships, past and present, believing that they hold many keys to your breakthroughs. I’ll provide tools and strategies as needed, and perhaps a book recommendation… or two.

As an avid world traveler, I enjoy working with clients from many different cultural and religious backgrounds. However, as a Christian myself, I specialize in counseling from a Christian perspective. I encourage and welcome my clients to discuss their beliefs in whatever way they are comfortable

My Clinical Experience

I obtained my Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling from Lee University, and my Bachelors degree in Psychology from Oral Roberts University.

I’ve worked in a variety of counseling settings – with college students in the university counseling center setting, trauma victims in domestic violence and sexual abuse response centers, and victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation both in Atlanta and overseas.

For the last five years, I have worked in counseling practices in the Atlanta area and have launched into private practice, working alongside the wonderful people at TRU Integrative Health and Wellness, a holistic healthcare center in Buckhead. I am a trained Prepare/Enrich premarital counselor, and am a Gottman trained couples therapist.

Other things about me

I’ve been working as a therapist, providing thousands of hours of therapy since 2007 and have worked in Atlanta, Eastern Tennessee, and even Thailand.

I’m a Florida girl, born and raised in Tampa, and still appreciate a warm sunny day and some yummy Latin food.

When I’m not at work, you might find me cooking or creating something, playing the piano, or out hiking with my husband.
