It can almost be considered as being a fact that all marriages will have their problems and setbacks. However, such a “fact of life” should never be used an excuse for getting a divorce or separation of any sort. Marriage vows are spoken for a reason; to uphold and persevere through the toughest obstacles of life with one another. African American marriage counseling is designed to help couples through the most tumultuous times of relationships.

Not only are African American couples counseling sessions conducted to help the couple as a whole, but also both individuals in the relationship separately. Therefore, the goals of African American marriage counseling sessions are to repair the problems within the relationship while ensuring that both individuals leave with happiness in themselves and their partner. An African American marriage counseling therapist is fully trained and experienced in understanding and analyzing the different problems couples and individuals are faced with in their lives.

We provide counseling for:

  • Marriage and Relationship Issues
  • Premarital Counseling with Bethesda Counseling
  • Drug Treatment with Bethesda Counseling
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Anger Management
  • Mind-Body Counseling

Our fees are between $200-$400 for 50 minutes, depending on your counselor. We do not accept insurance, meaning we are not "in-network" with any health plans.
However, many of our clients submit claims to their out-of-network health insurance and receive 40-60% reimbursement.
