I offer couples a safe place to communicate and build a relationship of mutual respect, understanding and growth. As a couple, you will begin to create emotional safety and intimacy and develop your relationship to it’s fullest potential.
In premarital counseling, we will use the Symbis Assessment tool, which helps you unpack all the important topics to save your marriage before it starts.
In individual counseling, we will work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. This may include how to manage difficult emotions, improve decision making, and create a healthy balance between work, leisure and relationships.
Parenting doesn’t have to be overwhelming. As a counselor and parent educator, I will help you understand the reasons for your child’s misbehavior. You will learn new methods to help create an atmosphere of cooperation, mutual respect and encouragement.

“First and foremost, I wanted to thank you for all of your amazing work with us over the last couple years. Your knowledge and guidance, not to mention your incredible care and thoughtfulness was instrumental (and still continues to be) in helping us navigate our relationship.”

“When my wife and I first came to see Tory we had been dating and fighting regularly for years. She gave us the chance to stop and slowly work through the issues that were most important to us. It transformed the relationship, essentially stopped the fights, and we ended up getting married a couple of years later. I would recommend her to anyone.”
“Tory Joseph has given two talks at our school PTA meeting and both have been an overwhelming success. The feedback I get from our PTA members is fantastic and everyone takes away at least one valuable tool to help with surviving parenthood!”

“My wife and I came into counseling after we started a family and discovered our personal relationship was suffering. We found ourselves fighting for space in the chaos. Tory assisted us in acquiring a new balance by introducing the IMAGO techniques and strategies. Over a period of time we worked under Tory’s guidance on a consistent approach to identify each of our needs during stressful situations. The real success came when we learned that the benefits were apparent throughout our relationship. Our communication is genuinely better! Together we have seen dramatic improvement in our marriage and as parents.”
“I would encourage parents to consider whether it’s really about their own disappointment at this time or their kids’,” says Tory Joseph, a licensed therapist, parenting coach and parenting educator in D.C.
