"Sometimes the circumstances that bring someone into therapy feel monumental or even shameful. Other times they might seem hard to pinpoint or articulate. The reasons people seek therapy are countless, and they all matter. They affect our thoughts and our relationships, often quite deeply, so they are indeed worthy of attention. My purpose as a therapist is to develop a relationship and a context that feels restorative and safe through which my patients and I can grapple with any and all concerns imaginable. Through intimate conversation and our shared experience emerge feelings, buried fears, and the previously unknowable. "

If you're looking for family therapy in Bethesda or for a Bethesda family therapist these professionals provide family therapy services and structural family therapy services. They include family therapists and marriage family therapists. Therapists in Bethesda using the techniques of 'family therapy' (also referred to as marriage and family therapy and family counseling) view change in terms of the systems of interaction between family members.

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.
