Krishna Rayala

Masters Level Intern 

Focus: Adolescents & Adults

About Me

Krishna is a master's-level intern who is working towards her master's degree in marriage and family therapy from Mercer University. She is also trained in the Level 1 IFS Therapy model. She has credentials as a life coach and relationship coach. Before starting her journey in the mental health field, she was in IT and worked as a software engineer for nearly 10 years. She left her job to be a full-time mother. During this time, she realized the importance of early childhood development and how past trauma and family patterns can become barriers to being effective parents. Her curiosity and desire to make the world a better place have driven her towards the mental health industry. Krishna strongly believes that none of the problems or mental health issues happen in a vacuum but are relational in nature. She is passionate about working with parents, couples, and individuals. She believes that by helping parents and couples, she can help create a positive and nurturing family environment for children to thrive.

            Krishna has spent the last 14 years in the United States. Prior to that, she lived in India all her life. This diverse exposure to east and west has provided her with a unique lens that helps her appreciate the differences in cultures and perspectives while empathizing with the immigrants’ everyday struggles in balancing their family of origin culture with the culture they live in. Krishna strongly believes in creating a safe and non-judgmental environment for her clients to explore their inner selves. Krishna is currently under the supervision of Cristina Lorenz-Hansen at Family Counseling Associates of North Georgia.
