HOW DOES WASHINGTON DC COUPLES COUNSELING WORK?

We don’t have a one-size-fits-all formula for couples counseling. In fact, each couples experience may be totally unique. However, there are key elements that are almost universal in our Washington DC couples counseling:

  • We will assess if couples counseling is the best approach to help your relationship and recommend alternatives if needed
  • If you have specific goals for your Washington DC couples counseling, we will assess with you what obstacles you face to achieving these goals and offer reasonable and effective suggestions
  • We will assess your communication habits and suggest ways to communicate more clearly and consistently, and help you practice new communication skills.
  • We will help you assess healthy and unhealthy boundaries in your relationship. We need boundaries to keep our connection to our partner strong and safe. Too many boundaries limit connection as does too few boundaries.

These are just some of the elements of our Washington DC Couples Counseling.

Couples Counseling

Looking for a couples counseling? There are a few things you may want to know that may guide you in your search for the couples counseling that is best for you.

Consider, for example, that relationship and/or marriage counseling is widely considered the most technically difficult form of couples counseling to provide. I have the specialized post-graduate training and high-volume experience with couples for you to be confident that I can sensitively work with you to help you and your relationship.

I am a member of the National Registry of Marriage Friendly Therapists. You will find some interesting articles on their website about the potential hazards of putting your relationship in the hands of a therapist who isn’t specifically trained or experienced with the complexity of relationship therapy (this also applies to doing individual psychotherapy when you are in a relationship). Because relationship therapy is the most “in-demand” form of psychotherapy, there is significant financial motivation for most therapists to tell you they work with couples. It is important to ask specific questions about your therapist’s training, volume of couples in the practice, philosophy, and even outcomes.
