Psychotherapy for Children, Teens, and Families

Welcome to Dandelion Psychotherapy, PLLC!



We are a growing group private practice comprised of therapists who provide compassionate counseling by a team approach, to meet the diverse needs of busy Washington, DC families who are raising children. 

We love supporting people throughout the lifespan of their families!


With various specialties ranging from perinatal mood disorders, to LGBTQIA, to therapy for children and teens, we encourage you to check out our Therapists page to learn more about each therapist in our practice to see who may be the best fit for you.


We're always looking to add exceptional talent to our team! If you are a clinically-licensed mental health professional please check out the Join Our Team! page.



I founded Dandelion Psychotherapy, PLLC in 2011 as a solo part-time private practice, and in 2014 we evolved into a group practice with therapists spanning many different specialties! If you are interested in working with one of our therapists please reach out to me. I can match you with a therapist who will be the best fit for you. 


To me, dandelions represent the wonder of childhood innocence and freedom: making wishes based on hopes and dreams. Perhaps in adulthood, setting goals to achieve in therapy frees ourselves from emotional patterns and behaviors that no longer serve us or work for us. 


                                   I hope to hear from you today!
