Kirsten Jimerson Sidell, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Bethesda, MD


Couples can get to a point where their relationship becomes stale and even hostile. It does not mean that you do not love each other. It means that you have lost your way, that other things have gotten in the way, and you have tried, but you do not know how to stay connected.
I help couples to reduce conflict and to regain stability in their relationship. With the desire and new skills learned in sessions, couples become knowledgeable about how to create deeper intimacy and greater trust. Couples begin to feel that no matter the subject, they can discuss it and be supportive of one another.
I practice Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) with couples. Extensive empirical research demonstrates that EFT is an effective, short term psychotherapy model. Using EFT as my guide, I assist couples in improving intimacy, communication, trust, and and security within their relationship.
My desire is for you to have a strong, secure, loving, and joyful partnership. I want your relationship to bring you comfort, to lift you in your darkest moments, to bring you joy...because when we feel understood by our most beloved person, we have the freedom to grow and develop into our best selves.
