Dara Goldberg, MSW, LCSW-C, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Bethesda
Reaching out to a therapist can be a difficult decision and a brave choice. In my practice, I work with my clients to build upon strengths that already exist to help you gain the skills to reach their fullest potential. I would like to help you have the opportunity to create meaningful change in your daily lives. I provide psychotherapy to children, adolescents, individuals and their families who are struggling with anxiety, depression, stress, ADHD, and learning challenges. I have experience advocating for clients in the form of working with teachers, participating in IEP meetings, and educating the community.
I specialize in working with you to discover and develop strengths that already exist and build strategies to handle life's challenges. In my practice I use combination of talk, play and relaxation training to meet your specific needs.
Therapy has the most successful outcomes when the client and therapist have a trusting relationship. My hope is that in my practice, clients' feel safe and comfortable to be their "true" self where we can work on goals and track progress together.
