Dr. Suzanne Imes

Psychologist , PhD

(404) 369-2493 x23
I work with adults and older adolescents who are dealing with issues related to depression, anxiety, post traumatic stress, relationships, achievement and success, chronic illness, transitions, early attachment problems, self-esteem, addictions, betrayal, and general problems in living. I focus on self-acceptance and growth rather than on pathology and "change." I believe we are all in this together; I take the journey with my clients rather than thinking I know what is best for them. I think questions are often more important than answers. My motto is: Less judgment, more curiosity.
My overarching therapeutic orientation is Gestalt therapy (see www.gestalt.org/yontef.htm for a good introductory description). While all Gestalt therapists focus on the body (as well as thoughts and emotions), I specialize in the use of various body techniques, such as movement, touch, and attention to breathing.
As co-developer of the Impostor Phenomenon theory, I work with people who fear they are not as bright or capable as others think they are and are often worried they will be "found out." I also integrate the Enneagram into my work.
