David Christy, LCSW, Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Takoma Park, MD


Strong, healthy relationships take work. Without the right tools, communication often turns negative or simply grinds to a halt. This leads to cycling distance and anger. Once off track, it can be difficult for a couple to find their way back to the place of loving kindness they once shared.
I help couples find their way back home. I work from the premise that that each couple is unique. To ensure my clients receive the help they need to resolve conflict, increase intimacy and discover new hope and desire, I draw on various schools of counseling, including the Gottman Method, Imago Relationship Therapy and Discernment Counseling.
I place particular emphasis on helping each member of the couple confront themselves, which often has the effect of reducing conflict between them. Seeing your spouse confront their issues may free you to back off, be more forgiving and, also, encourage you to confront yourself in turn. This can create a healthier space in which both of you can manage conflict, become better friends, and create new paths to support one another’s hopes for the future. In addition, by engaging more deeply with our partners, we can better understand who we are as individuals.
