Are you struggling with anxiety, OCD, stress or depression? If so, you've come to to the right place. Our 11 Washington, DC therapists specialize in working with young adults (20s and 30s). We offer in-person sessions as well as online therapy for individual counseling and group therapy. Since we opened our doors in 2012, DC Talk Therapy has helped nearly 2,000 clients make positive and sustained changes in their lives. The period between college and middle age can often feel chaotic and scary, filled with major life decisions and significant changes. Let one of our experienced and compassionate therapists help you navigate it all.
Anxiety and OCD are two of our specialty areas, and we primarily use cognitive behavioral therapy to treat them. We have an OCD expert, Sophie Bauer, as well as an EMDR therapist, Yvany Peery, LICSW. Miranda Jean, LICSW, specializes in working with the LGBTQ+ community. Michelle Lawlor, LPC, specializes in substance abuse and runs a popular anxiety group.
We're always accepting new clients. Our administrative staff is live Monday-Friday, 9 am-5 pm. They can often schedule new clients within two business days. We understand the importance of a good fit with your therapist, so we encourage you to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation with any of our DC therapists. We've recently added more evening hours.

We often use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) in our work with clients. However, some of our therapists are trained in other types of therapy, such as EMDR, DBT and mindfulness. In your first session, we'll explore your challenges and come up with a plan, which includes your goals. CBT is a great way to connect unhealthy thought patterns with troubling feelings and behaviors.
