About Akilah Thomas:
Hi, it's Akilah!
I would like to take a moment to introduce myself and my vision for Building Strong Families, Inc.
You may ask yourself, who is Akilah? and why does she think she can make my relationship healthy?
First, I am a trained Relationship Expert and have been coaching couples since 2005, providing couples with skills and tools to develop and maintain a healthy and lasting relationship. I use an evidence-based curriculum, meaning that I use a curriculum that has been proven to enhance and prolong relationships.
I obtained a Bachelors Degree from Clark Atlanta University in Sociology and a Masters degree from Emory University's School of Public Health. Sociology is the study of human social life and Public Health is the science and practice of protecting and improving the health of a community.
Relationships are affected by each individual in the relationship and relationships are affected by their community, the people each person in the relationship is associated with. In order to achieve a healthy relationship, couples must learn new skills and be given new tools that may not be readily available or accepted amongst their social surroundings. My public health background allows me to teach couples how to protect themselves from outside forces that can destroy a relationship, and how to improve the health of their relationship by approaching their union creatively.
Building Strong Families, Inc. specializes solely on relationships! This means that our focus is 100% on the couple. Our facility provides in-person individual couple sessions, telephone support, as well as group workshops. We are a place couples can always come to strengthen their relationship.
