Couples Counseling

Humans are shaped to need connection, and some of the most impactful bonds in our lives are our intimate relationships. Whether you’re working through a key phase of your relationship or need help getting the spark back, couples therapy in Arlington, VA can help.


Conflict in relationships is completely natural

All relationships, including healthy ones, experience some degree of conflict. The key is addressing those conflicts head-on in a loving, constructive way. Couples counseling can help you and your partner address issues and find solutions to problems before they get out of hand.

Many couples begin therapy under the assumption that they need to eliminate all conflict from their relationship. Other couples may tell their therapist, “We never fight, so I don’t understand what the problem is.”

Conflict, or the absence of conflict, isn’t an indicator of relationship health on its own; it’s the type of conflict and how it’s handled that makes or breaks a relationship.


All therapy and psychiatry sessions have moved to an online format using a HIPAA-compliant video platform.
