Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor

1629 K Street, N.W., Suite 300, Washington, District of Columbia 20006

Are you engaged and need premarital counseling? Or, perhaps you are married and simply "fell out of love". Is there an infidelity that needs to be forgiven, and the desire to repair the marriage? Is arguing the norm between the two of you? Through faith-based counseling a healthier "couple" will emerge and manifest. In a nonjudgmental and safe environment, exploration will take place to identify and eradicate the problematic circumstances. I look forward to working with you, and I applaud you for taking the first step toward a happier state of co-existence! Let's start your tomorrow today.

I see couples in all situations -- premarital counseling, marital/non-marital distress, separation and divorce issues, gay or straight couples, etc. The ability to hear and understand one another, even in situations of major difference, is almost always part of the process as that ability (and willingness) is often easily lost. It is not generally the whole thing, though. I follow the behavioral guidelines explicated by John Gottman's research into relationship and marital satisfaction and find that using them as rules of thumb usually clarifies whatever problems exist and helps determine the appropriate course of action within each relationship.

Relationships are hard! They can bring out the best in us...and also the worst. What's more, its easy to feel confused and unable to see what is happening clearly when things in your relationship are troubled. Relationships can be up & down, and often it is that one familiar pattern or issue that triggers everything. As you and your partner are so 'in it', it is pretty difficult to find your own way out of the same old behavior. I work with couples, providing an unbiased and neutral perspective, helping you gain greater understanding into what is happening and how you want things to change. Yes, relationships are hard, but also contain infinite potential for healing & renewal.

There are unique challenges in romantic relationships that differ from other types of friendship and yet friendship is the basis for most happy couples. I utilize the Gottman Method to assess the strengths and challenges in your relationship and help you explore the differences in your beliefs, expectations, communication styles, etc. After the assessment we will work together to create the therapy goals for your relationship.

Helping individuals and couples realize more fulfilling and intimate relationships in their lives is a major goal of my practice. Using diferent client-specific approaches, I can help with problems in communication, compatibility, control, and other issues. By using mindfulness practices to focus your attention, you literally change the structure of the brain, re-sculpting the neural pathways that underlie a sense of personal well-being. We improve the quality of our relationships when we improve our ability to perceive the inner workings of our minds. As we become increasingly intimate with the inner workings of our mind, we also develop our ability to understand others.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

We use the latest method of communication, conflict resolution, attachment theory and trust building to help couples resolve conflicts quickly and deepen they connection. We can help you transform your troubled relationship into a happy, successful, supportive relationship. Very few people are equipped with the understandings and technical skills that are necessary for an intimate relationship to be successful. Many couples lack skills in the area of communication, anger management, commitment, conflict revolution and / or intimacy skills. The things that make a relationship work are about the little things like how you solve arguments and how much you like and respect each other.

Nancy Montagna, Ph. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

1110 Fidler Lane, #1417, Silver Spring, Maryland 20910

There are two most basic fears of intimacy that we all have: one is fear of abandonment, the other is fear of being taken over, of losing my autonomy. In a relationship, people often become polarized with one clinging and the other seeming distant. With awareness of our fears and how to take care of ourselves and each other, we will bring out the best in each other. Everyone knows how to speak and listen, right? Not so. The most difficult skills to learn are to speak self-responsibly about your own experience and to truly listen and understand the other person's experience even when you don't like it. To learn these skills enables love. I can help.

Kristin Rosenthal, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

1707 Belle View Blvd C-1, Alexandria, Virginia 22307

We specialize in helping couples, using Emotionally Focused Therapy. This is a complex approach which helps couples (of all sorts) to understand the deep need for safety and connection we all have, innately. When we feel repeatedly disappointed in the connection, or a serious breach such as an affair occurs, people react with protective anger, protesting the loss. Unfortunately, that angry protest often drives the more reticent partner farther away, leaving the first one even more desperate. We help people see that the unhappy cycle they are caught in is responsible for their suffering. And then we help them to find and share their more vulnerable feelings, creating a positive and affirming cycle....

As a therapist, my focus is on helping to strengthen and rebuild your marriage.

We will work collaboratively to develop treatment goals that fosters unity and cohesiveness in your relationship. My approach is warm, collaborative and relational.

Being in a committed love relationship is hard. Rainer Maria Rilke wrote, “For one human being to love another; that is perhaps the most difficult of all our tasks, …the work for which all other work is but preparation.” In couples therapy, you receive support in learning how to truly know your partner while bringing compassion to the past experiences and forces that shaped you. You collaborate creatively to achieve greater sexual intimacy. By learning how to speak without attacking and to listen deeply, co-creating relationship visions and rituals of connection, the relationship you always dreamed of actually can become a reality. It’s a reward worth the investme

Christina Schultz, MA

Pre-Licensed Counselor, Supervised by Thomas Lamp, LPC

New Directions Counseling, 150 S. Washington St Suite 303, Falls Church, VA, Falls Church, Virginia 22046

I approach couples counseling from an integrative perspective using Gottman, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Bowen Family Systems, and Structural Family Therapy perspectives and techniques. My client is the couple relationship, and as a result I see couples together to observe and address unhealthy patterns, unfinished business and triggers, structural issues, triangles, and boundary issues that impacting the couple's relationship. I employ Gottman and in-session assessments to identify the strengths and vulnerabilities within the couples, and their joint goals. I tailor my couples counseling and homework assignments based on the underlying issues and the couples' unique needs.

Toni Coleman, LCSW, CMC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Relationship Coach

6403 Woodsong Court, McLean, Virginia 22101

Relationship counseling is my top specialty- and I find working with couples to be a very dynamic and challenging part of my practice. Too often when two people come in for couples therapy, there is a sense of fear or hopelessness about the potential outcome. When two people have waited until the relationship has suffered a lot of strain and there is great emotional distance, they often have low expectations for change. Yet, in my experience, many of these couples can be helped- and often it is not too late if both people have even a small desire to works towards healing and a renewed closeness. If this resonates with you- don't wait. A happier and healt union could be just a few visits away

Mary Lou Lyon, LPC

6723 Whittier Avenue, Suite 406, McLean, Virginia 22101

A large part of my work as a therapist is with couples: married, unmarried and pre-marriage. My approach focuses on communication, conflict resolution and understanding the internal dynamics of each individual and how these dynamics affect the couple relationship. I seek to help you understand your own personality and background as well as that of your partner. I am certified to administer an inventory, which can uncover the similarities and differences in your relationship dynamics.

Mary L Lyon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

6723 Whittier Avenue, Suite 406, McLean, Virginia 22101

Couples counseling, which includes marriage counseling, tends to be at least 50% of my work as a therapist. I have had post-graduate training in couples counseling and working with couples after an affair. I am also certified to provide pre-marriage counseling using the Prepare Inventory. There is great benefit in seeing a counselor when your relationship is fracturing. In therapy, each person is given the opportunity to express his or her concerns, communication and conflict resolution skills are developed, and new patterns of relating are established.

So many relationships that start out feeling wonderful and exciting end up in frustration and disappointment. Sometimes people try to solve the problem by moving on to a new relationship only to discover that the next one has similar struggles. Couples who work with me learn how to heal, grow, and find joy in their relationship. They learn skills that give immediate relief from their most hurtful encounters and foster deep empathy, understanding and connection. In only a few coaching sessions with your partner, you will learn how to communicate in ways that: heighten friendship and passion; truly resolve conflict; and lead to individual growth and satisfaction
