Working with couples is a dynamic process that requires the therapist to maintain a safe space where both people can feel heard and understood. I am a certified Imago therapist and use a dialogical process to increase the emotional intimacy between the two people. I have worked with straight, bi, gay and lesbian and transgendered couples, and many different ethnic groups---and find that the challenges are essentially the same---to create a bond of trust that allows for all parts of the two people to show up and be accepted in the relationship. I share helpful handouts that people can use when they are home, to be able to deal with conflict more skillfully.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 22039 - Nearby to Dunn Loring.

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.

Sometimes a couple reaches a place where they need to work on resolving different conflict in their relationship. There may be communication issues and the ability to make thoughtful decisions about the relationship is lost. I use the Gottman approach to help you identify where the major issues are and interventions to help improve communication. I will be your neutral mediator, I do not take sides. My focus will be on the relationship and both of you will get time to give your story. The couple will have an opportunity to talk through the issues and at times figure out what the issues are.

Like all psychotherapy, couples therapy is a process, but one in which I work to help both members of a partnership to feel heard while also working for measurable change that couples can notice and know when they are making progress. I use attachment models to inform my work with couples–helping couples to develop a safer, more fulfilling and secure partnership. I focus on both present circumstances while also working to understand how problems develop and providing ways to prevent their reoccurrence. Some of the issues that couples often seek treatment for include the following: Communication Managing Difficult Life Transitions Separation/Divorce Loss/Grief Parenting Saving your Marriage Pre-Marital Counseling Managing Conflict

I don’t take sides or place blame. Instead, I work to understand each of you as individuals and as a couple.

In 20707 - Nearby to Dunn Loring.

Given the many challenges that can lead to divorce (money problems, adultery, differences in raising children, etc.) the wisest thing couples can do is to seek Christian counseling before they say "I do." No matter how solid a couple’s relationship may be, problems and differences will inescapably arise, therefore, pre-marital counseling really operates like the best security system a couple could ever purchase. Our Christian counselors can be beneficial by familiarizing couples with targeted areas of conflict that often lead to divorce. These areas are: • Communication • In-Laws • Money/finances • Sexuality • Spiritual Intimacy • Roles (delegation of responsibilities and jobs in managing the home) • Religion/spiritual leadership.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 20852 - Nearby to Dunn Loring.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor/Marriage & Family Therapist

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.

Couples may seek the help of a therapist for various reasons (such as difficulty in communication or recovery after an infidelity). Exploring and improving issues such as communication, commitment level, and understanding the needs and wants of their partner are common issues that are targeted in couples counseling. Whether it be to better improve your relationship or working to explore whether or not the relationship can be saved, it can be helpful to have an objective therapist present to help a couple better understand each person's perspective, identify and improve communication, and help to foster a better sense of understanding and perspective of each individual.

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

Nancy Montagna, Ph. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 20910 - Nearby to Dunn Loring.

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.

Psychologist

In 20814 - Nearby to Dunn Loring.

Couples counseling (whether with romantic partners, marital partners, friends or colleagues) is an effective means of improving your life, your partner's life, and the condition of those living with and around you. My approach is based on a blend of writers such as Drs. John & Julie Gottman, Ester Perel, Terry Real, etc..and theories such as Imago and Emotionally Focused Therapy. I do not think any one theory or method works for all clients. We will work together to determine what works best for you and your partner in order to facilitate growth and to enable you to have greater understanding, compassion, and improved communication in your own home.

Kristin Rosenthal, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 22307 - Nearby to Dunn Loring.

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....
