A Center for Relationships in Alexandria, VA offers couples counseling, marital counseling, pre-marital counseling, individual counseling, family counseling, step-family counseling and child counseling. We provide therapy for deeper issues of trauma and neglect. Center therapists take a mind body-spirit approach leading clients to more loving and connectedness.


Couple counseling/Marital counseling: With couples and singles our highly trained, certified or licensed professionals tackle issues of infidelity, anger, withdrawal, depression and anxiety. We also offer the PAIRS courses where we teach couples and singles the “skills” of relating and the underlying dynamics for sustaining intimacy.

Counseling Sessions for Individuals focus on specific life-draining problems such as depression and anxiety. Counseling can transform old negative patterns into growth potentials for true happiness and fulfillment, teaching new ways of thinking about oneself and the world as well as new ways of reacting. Psychotherapy also aids in healing emotional imprints from events such as sexual abuse, rape, physical abuse, or experiences of war or natural disasters.

Lynn Turner, PhD, LCSW, Director, is a senior therapist who has worked with hundreds of couples, helping them to be happy and fulfilled in their relationships. Her individual clients have transformed depression, anxiety, trauma and childhood neglect into creative, rewarding, happy lives. Dr. Turner is also skilled in helping children.  The mind-body-spirit approach is key to Dr. Turner’s therapy. Contact: 703-549-9554×1

The Enneagram Seminar teaches people about their innate temperaments or personalities which affect every aspect of their lives. Discovered by the ancient Greeks as they were searching for answers to life’s questions, the enneagram (ennea means 9 in Greek) provides a template for understanding our basic filter on the world: our motivations and our vulnerabilities as well as our gifts and burdens.

The Emotional Healing Workshop offers clients the opportunity to delve deeply into emotions to release and heal long held emotional imprints. Clients feel tremendous relief from releasing the well of pain which has been inhabiting their bodies and minds. A private session with a Center therapist is required before attending this workshop.


“We had a safe place to face our issues and a community to heal in.” “Tiny little truths unfolded and multiplied, leading to often breath-taking self-discoveries.” “This course has turned my life completely around.” “This has been a life altering experience.” “It’s a self-examination, not an attack, and you learn and want to change yourself instead of just being told what to do.”
