100 Years of Therapy Experience
Our therapists have more than 100 years of combined experience providing individual counseling. They continue to get advanced training to hone current skills or learn new ones as a way to serve our clients in the best way possible. Since we opened our doors in 2012, our therapists have helped more than 1,500 clients.
We understand the unique challenges of millenials. We’re here to help you navigate through what is often a turbulent time. Personal and professional lives can be in a state of upheaval for those in their 20s and 30s, as they try to figure out who they most want to be with and what they most want to do. It can be a scary and confusing time, but you don’t have to go through it alone.
Our therapists will work with you to explore problem areas and develop new skills to help you make positive changes in your life. We’ve had excellent results helping people who feel “stuck” in different areas of their lives. They’ve gone on to become more hopeful, energetic and decisive.
How Our Therapists Work
Most of our therapists who provide individual therapy work from a cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) model. We look to highlight a client’s self-defeating thought patterns or irrational beliefs and connect those patterns to negative feelings and harmful behaviors.
A common example of a self-defeating thought pattern is perfectionistic thinking. That type of thinking is unreasonable and rigid and it leaves little room for error. Furthermore, it can reinforce feelings of failure or disappointment.
Some of our therapists incorporate other approaches and forms of therapy. These include mindfulness, insight-oriented therapy, solution-focused therapy, psychodynamic therapy and EMDR (eye movement desensitization and reprocessing).
Our therapists typically meet with clients once a week for individual therapy, occasionally twice a week if more intensive work is needed. Individual counseling sessions last 45-50 minutes. Some of our therapists offer longer sessions (75 or 90 minutes). Others offer half sessions.
All of our therapists offer teletherapy, or online therapy, on HIPAA-secure video platforms like Doxy, VSee, WebEx and Zoom.
Since we see a lot of clients with anxiety and depression, medication is sometimes warranted as an adjunct to psychotherapy. Our therapists work closely with several psychiatrists, nurse practitioners and primary care doctors in Washington, D.C.
