Because Capital Institute’s therapists have the ability to work as a team, we can help address the complexities that can come with family life.  

Sometimes individual therapy can be enhanced by adding couples sessions with another therapist.  Or couples therapy may be more effective when one of both partners are in individual therapy.  Parents may benefit from sessions to help them know how best to support their children. And children may sometimes benefit from individual therapy to help them cope with the impact of marital issues their parents have.  We can also help parents and adult children improve their relationships.

Consultations between therapists (always subject to the permission of all family members) can help coordinate treatment, as can family meetings.  We are also happy to consult with any therapists outside of our practice who are working with members of your family.

As with our couples/relationship therapy, all of our family work is LGBTQIA+ affirmative. 

Your treatment plan is meticulously customized to meet your specific needs. Whether you prefer Teletherapy or in-person consultations at our offices in Washington, DC, or Bethesda, our Psychologists are dedicated to delivering outstanding care.
