Our relationships, especially those with our intimate partners, are central to our mental health. Healthy relationships strengthen and support us in times of stress. Conflict with our partner(s) can also be our greatest source of stress. Our therapists are skilled at helping partners navigate conflicts and solve problems together, while building the life they want to live.
Couples therapy should always be done by a therapist with extensive training in the treatment of couples and families. In Maryland, therapists who are licensed to practice couple and family therapy always have LGMFT or LCMFT after their names. Other types of therapists (LCSW-C, LGSW, LCPC, LGPC, Licensed Psychologist) may or may not have training in couples therapy, depending on their individual course of study. Give us a call for help figuring out who can best help you.
