Family / Marital Therapists
Therapists in Bethesda using the techniques of 'family therapy' work with families or couples both together and individually to help them improve their communication skills, build on the positive aspects of their relationships, and repair harmful or negative dynamics.

As an approach to therapy, 'family therapy' (also referred to as family systems therapy, marital therapy, marriage therapy, marriage and family therapy, marital therapy and family counseling) views change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members or couples.

Family relationships often affect psychological well-being and, regardless of the origin of an issue, or whether it may be the "individual" or "family" who is presenting it, involving the family in the solution can be of great benefit. Families participate directly in sessions during which the family therapist helps conversations in a way that draws upon and builds the strengths, wisdom and support of the wider family unit.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Bethesda are able to work with a wide range of issues.

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Bethesda you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Bethesda and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Bethesda or family therapy in Bethesda.
