Family Therapy Services in Bethesda MDOur Bethesda family therapists are specially trained to help families repair and enrich their relationships. Attending therapy with family members– including parents, siblings, spouses, grandparents, and extended family–means that change doesn’t just happen for one person, it happens for the entire family system. Family therapy is powerful and our therapists are specially trained to help families. Family therapy helps you resolve emotional and interpersonal struggles within the context of your family relationships and environment.

Family Therapy Bethesda MDOur passion is working with families, parents, and adolescents who are motivated to make positive changes in their lives and relationships. We blend several therapy models so that our work suits your family’s style and needs. Our practice offers family-centered care, which means your family will receive the highest-quality family counseling experience.

In family therapy, we talk about what you learned from the family you grew up in and from your past relationships, and about how those experiences influence your present situation in your family. Your family therapist will help to highlight cycles in your family dynamics and talk about how these cycles keep you feeling ‘stuck.’ We often encourages out-of-session assignments to extend the impact of the insights and skills you learn in the office into your life at home.
