Maureen McElroy, MA, MS, LGMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Bethesda
Life may be harder than you expected. You may feel stressed, depressed, or anxious. You may be struggling with a decision. Relationships with your family are complex. You may want to improve communication with your partner. Parenting is tough. You may have suffered a loss, & you don't know why it still affects you. You may have put a dream on hold while you attended to family matters, & now you wonder if you are still capable of fulfilling that dream. You may feel you have been given gifts, but you aren't using them to their full potential.
Whether you choose individual or couple counseling, parent education, or family therapy, you'll feel supported by me. Clients describe me as warm, caring & empathetic. They learn to recognize & celebrate their strengths. They heal, get unstuck, & move forward. They improve the relationship they have with themselves and others.
I help clients deal with stress & disappointment. As a therapist & a PEP Parent Educator, I have helped hundreds of parents solve parenting challenges. Clients explore their grief with me . I like working with older adults. I enjoy helping parents decide what comes next as their children become young adults.
