Browse Our Services

Child Play Therapy

We provide child-centered, non-directive play therapy for children. Your child will work with one of our trained therapists, who will also provide parent support and consultation, speak with relevant providers, and coordinate care for your child. We are located close to a few DCPS elementary schools: John Eaton, Hearst, Murch, and Janney Elementary, and nearby to many private and parochial schools in North West Washington, DC.

Teen Therapy

We provide psychotherapy for teens ages 12 and older, to help them succeed in an increasingly complex world. Your teen will work with one of our trained therapists, who will also provide parent support and consultation, speak with relevant providers, and coordinate care for your teen. We are located just blocks from two DCPS schools: Wilson Senior High School and Alice Deal Middle School, and nearby to many private and parochial schools in North West Washington, DC. We are located just steps from the Tenleytown/AU metro station making it convenient for teens to reach us on their own easily, and we have after school hours available.

Parent Consultation

Sometimes we all reach a point in our parenting life, where we are stuck and not sure what to do next! Our trained therapists can provide caring support and inspiration so you can rise to the ongoing challenge of being a parent. We can meet with you independently one-on-one, with couples, or families. If we are working with your child, parent consultation is an integral part of making their therapy a success.

Pregnant and Postpartum Parents
Planning a pregnancy or pregnant already? Expectant parents can benefit from counseling support in this brand new chapter of your family's life! Both of our therapists are knowledgeable and sensitive to the needs of pregnant and postpartum parents. We can provide support and resources through this exciting and sometimes challenging family adjustment period.

Group Therapy and Support Groups

Sometimes group therapy can be a complement to individual therapy, as you will connect with others who are on a similar journey of healing. Periodically we offer groups to our clients. Recent groups have been for women facing transitions in their lives, and a teen girls journaling and reflection group.
