Couple’s Therapy

Couples therapy is a type of psychotherapy that assists couples in recognizing and resolving conflicts to enhance their relationships. It provides a safe space for partners to communicate openly, understand each other’s perspectives, and work towards mutual goals.

At Bethesda Therapy, we provide tools and strategies to enhance communication, resolve conflicts, and rebuild trust. Our approach is tailored to each couple’s unique dynamics, ensuring that the therapy is as relevant and effective as possible.

Couples therapy offers numerous benefits. It can help partners improve communication, deepen their understanding of each other, resolve past hurts, and find ways to reconnect. It serves as a bridge to enhanced understanding and a stronger bond.

By addressing the root causes of conflicts and providing tools for effective communication, couples therapy can transform the dynamics of a relationship. It’s not just about resolving issues but also about strengthening the foundation of the relationship for the future.

The duration of each session can vary based on the specific needs of the couple. However, our private pay structure ensures dedicated, high-quality time that prioritizes your relationship.

It’s essential to understand that therapy is a process. While some sessions might focus on specific issues, others might delve deeper into underlying patterns. The key is consistent engagement and commitment to the process.

The frequency varies based on individual needs, but weekly or bi-weekly sessions are common.

The duration varies by couple and their specific challenges, but many couples attend therapy for several months to a year.

Yes! In fact we are a virtual practice and only offer telehealth sessions, allowing for consistent therapy regardless of your location within the Maryland, Washington D.C., and Virginia region.

Virtual sessions offer the same quality of care as in-person sessions. They provide flexibility, especially for couples with busy schedules or those who live apart. The convenience of online sessions ensures that therapy can continue uninterrupted, even in challenging times.

At Bethesda Therapy, our couples therapy focuses on the relationship as the “client,” which complicates insurance criteria that typically require an identified individual client and a specific mental health diagnosis. Moreover, the primary code we use to address relationship problems (Z63.0) is not generally covered by insurance. While some therapists might bill insurance under different interpretations, we’ve chosen an approach we believe is most ethical. For information, please visit this more detailed explaination of why we don’t accept insurance for couples therapy.

If you and your partner are facing communication breakdowns, unresolved conflicts, or other relationship challenges, couples therapy can provide the guidance and tools to navigate these issues. Every relationship is unique, and our tailored sessions address your specific dynamics and challenges.

It’s natural to have reservations or uncertainties about therapy. However, seeking help is a sign of strength and commitment to the relationship. Whether you’re facing significant challenges or looking for ways to strengthen your bond, couples therapy can be a valuable resource.
