Allison Specializes In Woman’s Issues and Affair Recovery

  • I find great fulfillment in partnering with my clients as their hope is restored and their relationship’s are healed. So many of us are left feeling misunderstood, lonely, or rejected and are frustrated with not being heard. My goal is to assist others in gaining new skills and developing new strategies to cope with the hurts and trials that have robbed them of the joy that they deserve. I am fully confident that the strengths that we possess can be capitalized on and will enable each of us to move forward with a happy and fulfilling lifestyle.
  • Counseling can provide hope and healing through marital difficulties, disappointments, or the heartbreak of infidelity. We often experience the loss of dreams due to destructive relationships and now feel alone. I strive to provide success for families through a holistic approach that includes working with parents, spouses, and family members.
  • I’ve completed Level 2 of Gottman Method Couple’s Therapy: based upon John Gottman’s 35 years of extensive research. I have a special interest in Affair recovery. I practice from a Christian Perspective. Services are open to all regardless of race, ethnicity, disability, or religious affiliation.
  • Allison works under the direct supervision of Lou Carfizzi MA LPC.

Lifecare’s History

We started out providing counseling in a local church in 2002, and continued to do so for 3 years. Sometimes our payment was groceries, donations, and in one case, we were given a truck from a wonderful family. Beginning in 2005, Lou began teaching in a local Christian school where he also did counseling. From teaching and counseling, we went under contract with a counseling practice for 5 years doing professional counseling and psychotherapy. During which time, we opened up our office in cumming (about 2012). After our contracted period, we went full time in our Cumming Ga office where we are today.

    Good Afternoon Lou,

    I am currently a graduate student at Liberty University, and I am pursuing my Marriage & Family Therapist degree coupled with an LPC degree. I read that you are also a Liberty alumni, that’s awesome! I am in the process of searching for internship opportunities and considered your practice as a possible option In order to complete my degree, it is necessary for a year of practicum along with two years of residency. I would appreciate if you would give me your consideration for an internship with your office, or any possible leads to be successful.

    Thank you,
    Dyan Auterson
