Practice Description: Our work is devoted to helping people create happy couples, happy families, and happy lives. We are specialists in marriage and couples counseling and psychotherapy serving clients in the Washington DC metro area with offices in Maryland and Virginia. We have more than 20 years of experience providing counseling and psychotherapy services for couples, adults, groups, and children.

Some of the areas we specialize in are: --couples counseling –premarital counseling and classes --conflict and communication problems –affairs and infidelity --Imago Relationship Therapy –love and sex addiction --depression --drinking, alcoholism, codependence --sexual problems –physical abuse, sexual abuse, and trauma.

Couples today expect their relationship to meet all of their emotional, sexual, financial, social, and spiritual needs. It's no wonder that many people are unhappy in their relationship – with expectations like these, people are bound to be disappointed. Yet, when both partners are actively engaged in a process of soul-searching and intimacy, with a commitment to keep working on problems until they are solved, couples relationships can be among the most deeply satisfying of all human bonds, and can provide an important buffer from the stresses and strains of the outside world.

When first meeting with a couple, we ask each partner to outline the most important irritations and disappointments that are getting in the way of intimacy and enjoyment of the other. We also ask each to give a picture of the positive aspects of the relationship -- those things that seem to work without much effort on either partner's part. Couples frequently are surprised by how many parts of their relationship are working well. With this information in mind, we present the partners with an outline of the approach or approaches that could be of benefit to them, and together we choose a course of action.

We have extensive training and experience in many approaches to couples counseling.

We have office hours days, evenings, and Saturdays. We offer a free phone consultation to answer your questions and discuss your concerns. We invite you to explore our web site at, and sign up for our free e-newsletter on couples, family, and mental health topics.
