In couples treatment you can learn more effective skills for identifying, communicating about, and resolving sources of stress and conflict.  And you can find ways to increase feelings of closeness and attraction and improve your sexual relationship. Couples therapy can also be an opportunity to learn how to accept and live with differences within the context of a happy relationship.

Most insurance plans will cover couples therapy if one or both partners are experiencing anxiety, depression, or other symptoms as a result of relationship conflict or if independent mental health conditions of one or both partners are impacting the relationship.  We recommend that you talk to your therapist about whether you might qualify for insurance coverage at the beginning of treatment and that you check with your insurance plan as well.

Our relationship therapy, like all of our work, is LGBTQIA+ affirmative.

Whether you prefer Teletherapy or in-person consultations at our offices in Washington, DC, or Bethesda, our Psychologists are dedicated to delivering outstanding care.
