Just Who Are We, and What Are We All About?
TRU Integrative Health and Wellness was founded in February of 2011 by Dr. Robert and Katie Truax.
Prior to this, Dr. Robert offered holistic healthcare and chiropractic care in Buckhead and the sourrounding areas of Atlanta, and Katie was a full-time therapist for a non-profit agency in College Park, Georgia. Both Rob and Katie recognized the immense value of offering collaborative care for clients and patients in their quest for healing and optimal wellbeing. Their frustrations with the related challenges as well as thier goal to provide integrative and optimal care resulted in the culmination of TRU Integrative Health and Wellness. Because of the need of Dr. Robert and Katie to relocate their family out of state, new leadership was sought in the hopes of realizing growth and progress of the practice as well as retaining its reputation as one of Atlanta's premier health and wellness practices that focuses on whole person care.
In October of 2016, Dr. Curtis Fox assumed leadership of TRU Integrative Health and Wellness. Dr. Fox is a licensed martial and family therapist and a reknown family life educator with a wealth of knowledge and skills in mental health services. He has worked in private non-profit settings in New York, Tennessee, and California offring individual and family psychotherapy to clients consisting of individuals, couples, and families. Also, he has presented workshops and seminars in the Caribbean, Canada, Central and South America, Europe, and across the United States on a range of family life topics, including work/family issues in marriage and families, sexual dysfunctions and resolutions, family and health issues, adolescent development challenges for parents and families. His primary training was in a healthcare environment that embodied holistic healthcare as the foundation of its operations. He served as Professor of Counseling and Family Sciences for over 20 years and as department chair for 4 years administrating graduate programs in counseling, marital and family therapy, child life specialists, and family studies. Thus, for the last several years, Dr. Fox has not only served as a therapist, but has been active in training the present generation of clinicians in the area of mental health practice.
Over the past few years, TRU has been a thriving holistic health practice. It consists of 14 clinicians and offers therapy and counseling for individuals, families, couples and groups, holistic healthcare, weight loss and wellness coaching, hypnotherapy, and Reiki.
