Specialize in Helping Successfull, Stressed, Professionals
In 2001 Solutions & Results emerged from my commitment to develop an independent therapy center with integrity, focused on emotional development and transformation. We provide individual psychotherapy, coaching, couples therapy, group therapy and executive and organizational development.

I specialize in helping successful, stressed professionals and executives to maximize their potential.

There are many reasons people seek therapy, coaching or counseling.
I understand how difficult it can be if you are experiencing any of the following and I have helped many people with:

Low Energy
Self-esteem problems
Career Issues
Marital and other relationship problems
Or maybe you know you just don't feel quite right. I can help.

We will explore your experience together in a safe, compassionate, and caring setting.

Robert Hartford is a Systems-Centered Therapist (SCT). SCT* uses specific techniques to help achieve results. Being the only Licensed SCT* Therapist in DC and the surrounding area, means that when you join my private practice, you will get special attention. You will be part of an exclusive group of clientele, learning specialized techniques unique to SCT*. You can expect to get high level, sensitive, quality care, so you can progress and not be stuck in therapy forever.

Choosing the right therapist is one of the most important things for successful therapy outcome. But it isn't anything about the therapist per se, that makes that so. What matters most is that the two of you are a good fit. The right relationship is what makes the difference. So come ... explore ... and see if this is the fit that works for you. Together we will uncover your hopes and dreams, identify the obstacles and discover ways to reduce them, allowing for the possibility of turning your potential into reality.

I have heard it time and time again: "I've wanted to do this for a long time but I just didn't want to admit something was wrong with me. Now that I'm here, I realize it is not that something is wrong with me, I just want something more".

Therapy does not mean you're broken; it is a tool for personal growth. If you want to gain awareness and learn more about you and your potential for increased wellness and fulfillment, therapy or coaching can give you the tools.

SCT* and The Theory of Living Human Systems, developed by Yvonne Agazarian, finds that by reducing the constraints that prevent growth and development, energy is free to lead toward transformation. Don't expect to lie on the couch; this is not cookie cutter therapy and I will do more than just listen, say "yes", "hum", or "tell me more about that". I work along with you, using specialized methods and specific techniques to ensure you'll receive an excellent standard of personalized service. So when you join my private practice, you get my complete attention and focus on your situation so you can reach your goals over time. When you come aboard with me, be assured you'll get more than your typical psychotherapy.
