Welcome

Thank you for taking a look at Maureen McElroy Counseling.

I offer individual, couple and family therapy, as well as parent coaching and parent education. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, as well as a PEP Certified Parent Educator, I am uniquely qualified to help you with a wide variety of relationship issues and life transitions.

If you are facing a challenge, I will help you to focus on your strengths that will support you. Just as I will help you to understand yourself in the context of your family and your relationships, I will help you to understand others in the context of their relationships. Our work together will be collaborative. You will decide on the goals of our work together, and together we will focus on meeting those goals. 

Research shows that one of the most important factors in "success" in therapy is the connection between the client and the therapist. I will work to build that connection. I will check in with you to make sure I am meeting your needs.  

Morning, afternoon and evening therapy appointments are available in my downtown Bethesda office, which is convenient to Metro, street parking, and parking garages.  

I hope that you'll find what you are looking for on this site and you will be ready to connect. I believe that talking to a live person can tell you a lot more than a website can, so please feel free to pick up the phone and call me now at (301) 633-8950. You can expect a call back within the same or next business day. If you prefer, send me an email at maureen@maureenmcelroy.com

Together we can take the next step. I look forward to hearing from you.
