The Center for Relational Recovery offers an individualized proven path and treatment program for relational recovery that will improve all your relationships, resolve current and past traumas, and transform your life. We do this through…
Team Based Treatment
When you come to the Center for Relational Recovery, you get the benefit of being treated by the entire Clinical Team. The Clinical Team consults together regarding each person’s treatment, allowing clients to gain from each of the team member’s specializations, expertise and perspectives.
For couples that are treated both individually and as a couple at the Center for Relational Recovery, the clinical team works with clients from a systems perspective. This allows us to look at the “system” the couple has created together, seeing all the relational dynamics and how they interweave and interact in the relationship. This method allows couples to make quicker progress, as the “whole story” of the relationship is being understood and addressed throughout therapy.
The Center for Relational Recovery provides education, therapeutic experiences and relational connection all aimed at helping clients to transform their lives and relationships. Rather than focus only on symptom reduction (addiction, depression, anxiety etc.) the Clinical Team looks underneath at the dynamics that are creating the need for the symptomatic behavior and helps clients to experience deep personal change internally resulting in new ways of living.
The goal of treatment for all clients at the Center for Relational Recovery is to help them live lives of integrity. One meaning of the word integrity is related to having moral and ethical principles. However we focus on the following definition of the word: the state of being whole, entire, or undiminished. Our goal is to help clients live lives of wholeness that are undiminished and allow their true selves to flourish.

The Center for Relational Recovery (CRR) was launched in January of 2011 by Michelle Mays LPC, CSAT-S. Michelle had been in private practice for many years working with individuals and couples struggling with trauma, relationship issues and sexual addiction. The Center for Relational Recovery was born out of the great need for therapists in the Northern Virginia area skilled in working with these specializations and Michelle’s desire to train and equip therapists to provide excellent care to clients.
Over the past several years, CRR has grown to a team of four Clinical Associates and a full-time Office Manager/Intake Coordinator.
The Center’s main treatment programs are located in the Leesburg office location. However, in 2015 CRR opened a satellite office in Washington DC near Metro Center to serve clients located closer to the downtown area.
