Couples and Family Therapy

Dr. D'Ari is an approved supervisor of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy since 1987 and a large part of her practice is working with couples and families.  She trained at the Kantor Family Institute and was on the clinical staff of the Family Center connected to the institute. The emphasis was on the effective use of the self of the therapist.  In 1991, Dr. D'Ari started the Northern Virginia Reflecting team, which still meets every Thursday morning to work with families within a narrative therapy framework.

Dr. D'Ari has done advanced training with John Gottman, Ph.D. in Seattle, Washington and incorporates his research and approach into her work. She has also trained extensively with Susan Johnson in Emotion Focused Therapy, which is informed by attachment theory.  Both approaches focus on creating emotional connection within relationships.
