Services We Offer
At Caring Couples, helping couples is our passion! Over 90% of our clients are couples. Each of our clinicians has more than 10 years' experience and holds graduate degrees specifically in marriage counseling, premarital counseling, and marriage education. We are committed to strengthening relationships for people of all races and nationalities, sexual orientations, and spiritual backgrounds. However, if one or both partners are thinking of ending their relationship, we offer discernment counseling and controlled separation services to assist in making a final decision. We have evening and weekend hours, and when appropriate clinically, we offer online couples counseling.
We specialize in problems with communication, conflict, emotional disconnect, infidelity, trauma, sex life, substance abuse, and sex addiction. We also offer premarital counseling and relationship improvement classes in a private, 4-session format. Both classes include an online assessment, a workbook, and advice on improving relationship skills.
We use well-researched, effective techniques whenever possible. We assess your relationship carefully and tailor our services to your needs. We form clear, concrete goals with you, and focus on solutions to keep therapy brief. We help you learn how to have a happier, closer relationship here and now.

Detailed Business Description
We are a team of specialists that are devoted to helping people create happier relationships. Our work is devoted to helping couples figure out what's getting in the way of a satisfying relationship and then find creative solutions. We have a positive outlook and stress positive solutions. We work with married, unmarried, and premarital couples. For premarital couples, we offer a 4-session, individualized program as well as open-ended premarital counseling. For all couples, we offer help with: --communication & conflict --affairs and infidelity--love & sex addiction--internet porn problems--money and financial differences--depression--drinking problems & co-dependence--sexual intimacy & sexual problems--overall relationship unhappiness We can get you started quickly, through a free 30-minute phone consultation, during which we discuss your concerns and give you an idea of what to expect in couples counseling. At your first counseling session, we ask each of you about your priorities for counseling and your views on what's getting in the way of intimacy and enjoyment of eachother. We also ask you about the positive aspects of your relationship -- those things that seem to work without much effort. It can be surprising to talk about how many areas of the relationship are working well. With the use of research-based assessment tools, we take a comprehensive look at how your relationship is working for you, and based on all the information we've gathered, we create an outline of the approach that we believe could help. We explain to you what we are proposing and give you choices about what would be a good fit for your situation. Throughout your counseling experience, we talk openly about whether our collaboration is helping you meet your goals. If we aren't meeting your goals, we talk about how to change what we are doing to get you the results you want. We believe innovation and excellence are important parts of the counseling experience. A few of our innovations are: --Authentic Happiness Coaching. This approach uses the principles of positive psychology to help couples and individuals learn skills for enhancing well-being and relationships. These skills can take you from being a "relationship disaster" to a "relationship master." The approach has been found in scientific studies to be highly effective. ----Relationship Coaching for Men. These coaching sessions give men information and skills to bring relationships to a better place and bring peace to their home life. Focused on solutions, men learn to use their innate strengths to create a more loving, intimate relationship, with renewed fun, spontaneity, and friendship. We also believe that one person can change a relationship, so we work with individuals whose partners won't attend couples therapy or marriage counseling. We work with individuals who are suffering from the effects of depression, anxiety, or past trauma. We are members of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy and the National Council for Family Relations. We are licensed/qualified in Maryland and Virginia. Many insurance companies reimburse for our services. Life should feel great. If it doesn't, then perhaps counseling can help. Call us today to arrange your consultation. Your happy life is waiting!
