Friendship Therapy

Even good friends get into fights sometimes.

friendship therapy

It’s frustrating. Troubling. Painful.

You really don’t want to be in a fight with your best friend, but you don’t know how to resolve it. You can’t simply give in every time there’s a disagreement. Perhaps that’s something you’ve been doing for too long already. But you’re afraid if you bring it up you’re just going to spark another round of conflict

You want this relationship, but at this point it’s just not quite working. Something needs to change.

Maybe it’s at the point where you aren’t even speaking anymore. And, well, you just miss your best friend.

What do friends do when they’re at odds and need help resolving their issues? Do you need to be married to get professional help together?

You don’t. There’s friendship therapy.

Or, call it want you want. Mediation, coaching, relationship counseling – you can get a qualified, objective third party to help you make a change and save this friendship.

What do you do in friendship therapy?

therapy for friends

Well, here’s what we won’t do:


We won’t judge you. We won’t minimize the importance of what you bring to the table. We also won’t weigh in on who’s right and who’s wrong.


Instead, we’ll provide a nonjudgmental, open forum to discuss what has happened and where the relationship is, and we’ll give you the tools you need to resolve the problems yourselves.


What good is it if a professional can fix a problem for you if you can’t then take that and do it yourself at home?

We’ll help you develop new skills, new perspectives, and new ways of handling the issues that keep coming up. (Caution: these new understandings may help you in other relationships in your life as well, whether social, romantic, professional, familial, or other.)

We’ll spend time helping you open up to each other about the things that are hurting you in this friendship (and also about the things you love about this friendship).

You’ll learn how to talk to each other in a way that promotes connectedness instead of conflict. And you’ll leave feeling closer than ever before, and confident that you can maintain and even strengthen this relationship successfully, for the long term.

Is friendship therapy right for us?

save our friendship

If you miss and want your friend back, friendship therapy is right for you.

If you keep getting into painful fights and don’t know how to make a change, friendship therapy is right for you.


If you feel wronged and are seeking resolution, friendship therapy is right for you.


But the best way to answer this question is to come and find out for yourself.

 Send your friend this page. Ask them if they’d be willing to give it a shot. Extend an olive branch and say, hey, maybe this is worth trying. Nobody has to admit they were wrong yet. Nobody has to eat humble pie. You just both need to want this friendship. And if that’s there, we can take this to great places.

Friendship Therapy in Action

Livia and Allie were best friends, but they hadn’t spoken in two weeks. Livia was furious at Allie for what she saw as a major betrayal. Allie was exasperated with Livia for being hypersensitive. They were at an impasse, but couldn’t imagine losing each other as friends. They weren’t sure how to get help until Google turned up friendship therapy at the Baltimore Therapy Center and they decided to give it a try.

Wendy and Donte were on-again-off-again friends. They loved spending time together, but the back and forth was wearing on both of them. They came to the Baltimore Therapy Center to work out their friendship, decide on appropriate boundaries, and make a plan to uphold them. They left with greater clarity about the future of their relationship.
Jen and Liza reached out for help shoring up their friendship, which both had long felt was imbalanced. Their therapist helped them look at their own contributions to where the relationship was and gave them actionable tools to make a lasting change in the quality of their friendship.

Raffi made me enjoy going to therapy. I have learned to talk through issues that seemed impossible and I feel so much better about the communication in my relationship now.

Highly professional but down to earth. Both my husband and I felt completely understood and valued; something couples often fear simply cannot be achieved. I’m sure we’ll return we need a “tune-up”!

Caitlin is very professional–I found her organized, attentive and thorough. She made herself available when I had to reschedule sessions and she would follow up with me on her own time if she knew I was going through a challenging experience. She is one of the most top-quality people I have ever met.
