The Family Therapy Institute of Alexandria was founded in 1978 as a private clinical and training facility in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. The Institute has M.D., Ph. D., L.C.S.W. and counseling staff and faculty, as well as periodic visiting lectures.

Most staff members have been trained in family, individual, couples, and group psychotherapy, and most have been trained in Neurolinguistic Programming and Ericksonian Hypnotherapy.

Clinical services cover the full range of issues for which people seek psychotherapy. Short-term and long-term therapy needs are evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Our approach to therapy is an integrative one which incorporates the theories and techniques of several of the most significant schools of individual and family psychotherapy.
