Our Couples and Family Therapy program is Directed by Ms. Marvie Corbett, and Ms. Simone Schwager, Clinical Directors. Our approach with couples and family work centers on the belief that addressing the health of a system (Marriage/Parents/Sibling relationships/Parent-Child relationships) brings healing to each person. Relationships are dynamic. They change and evolve over time, just as we do as individuals. Nothing is more critical to our quality of life than the strength of our relationships. Our couple’s therapists understand that there are complicated reasons people find ourselves in distress within our relationships and they have the experience to guide couples towards wellness. We understand the stressors professional couples in the fast-paced DC metro area experience. Our highly skilled therapists are committed to using evidence-based treatments to ensure that couples make steady progress in goal-oriented work. Our therapists are also exceptionally skilled at creating a “therapeutic space” where each member of the couple feels respected and safe. We honor the journey of all couples and believe wholeheartedly that “love makes a family.”
Whether the goal of coming into couples or family work is a “tune-up”, coping with a transitional time, coping with a relational crisis, or determining the future of the relationship, our couple’s therapists have the experience to help. In couples and family work, each member will gain new skills to replace old patterns of behavior. Our therapists take a strengths-based approach, building on each person’s capacity for resilience and growth of each member so they can return to wellness.
