About My Practice
"I want you to get excited about who you are, what you are, what you have, and what can still be for you. I want to inspire you to see that you can go far beyond where you are right now." - Virginia Satir
At Your Couples Therapist, I consider my work to be both a great privilege and responsibility to provide the highest quality care for the people I work with. I have significant training and experience in providing treatment to children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families. My office is conveniently located in downtown Bethesda, MD within walking distance from the Bethesda Metro Station on the Red Line. Every therapist has a different style. As a Marriage and Family Therapist (MFT), I am trained and experienced in taking a "systems-approach" with helping couples, families, and individuals. Simply put, a systems-approach means that I address challenges in your own life as well as challenges within the context of the relationships you have with a partner, family member, or another significant person in your life whom you feel close to. This is what MFTs do best.
About Robin S. Smith
It is my goal to provide every person I see with an emotionally safe space, free of judgment. In this space, you'll find somebody who genuinely cares, who is curious and hopeful. I encourage people to explore new ways of thinking about their experiences and different ways of expressing themselves. I aim for the people I work with to leave each session feeling more empowered, with a sense of agency, and able to learn what they're capable of doing. I am honored to be your primary mental health provider and am confident that you will be pleased with the quality of care that I deliver to you and your family. If you, or I decide that our working relationship is not a good fit, I will refer you out to another therapist who is qualified to treat your presenting challenges.
