Mary Lou Lyon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 22101 - Nearby to Poolesville.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

The first kiss, the fun in the flirtation and the comfort of a warm hug from a partner gives us hope in the couples relationship. But, being in a couple (either heterosexual or homosexual) is HARD. We strive to get our needs met, be heard and find balance in the relationship. Many couples find that when their kids leave the home that their connection has suffered. Often it just takes an unbiased person to help maneuver through that age old argument or the newest wound. I have worked with many couples who have rediscovered their passion and realized how much they not only love each other, but really like each other as well.

Christina Schultz, MA

Resident in Counseling, Supervised by Thomas Lamp, LPC

In 22046 - Nearby to Poolesville.

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.

Couples Counselor

Jonathan Ladd, LCSW-C

Relationship Therapist for Couples and Singles

In 20878 - Nearby to Poolesville.

Once, one of my clients told me that their mother told them, "90% of couples' problems had to do with: Unmet Expectations, Undelivered Communications, and Unresolved Conflicts." That covers a lot of ground & rings true, doesn't it? At the same time, "knowing why" there are problems, is not the same thing as "knowing what to do" to address your concerns, nor "actually doing" what is necessary (realistically & practically) to address your concerns. Let me be your "guide" in helping you "traverse the terrain of the heart" -- whether you want to build a solid foundation for your relationship, heal & repair it, enhance it, sort out 'where to from here' or end it in the most humane & sane way.

Beth Levine, LCSW-C

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 20850 - Nearby to Poolesville.

Couples usually go to therapy when they are feeling distressed. Maybe they are also feeling isolated from each other, distrustful, or like they just can't communicate with each other. I like to start by getting to know what is is like for each of you to be in your relationship and how each of you understands how your relationship ended up in this distressed place. When I work with couples, I use a model called Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). EFT provides me with a map, a way to help couples out of their stuck places. I have earned my Certification as an Emotionally Focused Couple Therapist and Supervisor.

Mary L Lyon, LPC

Mary L Lyon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 22101 - Nearby to Poolesville.

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.

Brad Wasserman, LCSW-C
Couples Counselor

Brad Wasserman, LCSW-C

Psychotherapist for Adults, Adolescents, Couples & Families

In 20886 - Nearby to Poolesville.

Most couples share one significant challenge -- how to resolve conflict successfully. Conflict is a constant part of life -- partners may disagree about where to go for dinner or might argue about a major issue like how to manage finances. In most relationships, even small conflicts remain unresolved because couples use ineffective passive, agressive, and passive-aggressive communication styles. Every unresolved conflict creates a little more resentment and a little more tension. My focus in couples work is on helping clients to learn how to communicate with and hear one another and how to resolve conflict successfully. The result is healthier relationships and happier couples.
