Announcement icon We are accepting new telemental health/video counseling clients who reside in the states of Maryland, New York, & Washington, DC.
I have been both a teacher and clinical social worker in various capacities. I work especially well with younger people ages 12 & up: adolescents/teens, college-age students, and young professionals. I enjoy supporting single/solo as well as partnered moms who are expectant, new, and experienced, through the perinatal period and beyond. I work with complex attachment systems, with adoptees and their families. Other groups I specialize in working with are individuals who identify as LGBQTIA, survivors of trauma, and those going through transitions such as separation/divorce.
I am the director of a growing group practice comprised of therapists who provide compassionate counseling to meet the diverse needs of busy Washington, DC families raising children. We love supporting our clients via our team approach, throughout the lifespan of the family. I strive to help you find the best fit for your own journey.
Working from home due to COVID-19? I am licensed and offer telemental health/video counseling to residents of NEW YORK STATE, STATE OF MARYLAND, and DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA! Text or call 202-531-5385 or email me at erika@dandelionpsychotherapy.com

Erika Bugaj's Groups

M-POWER!

In this weekly online gathering we will carve out a space to share what it’s like to be a mom—victories, doubts, and epic fails. Each session will center on a relevant topic, such as self-care strategies that make sense for moms and ways to balance your multiple roles. The group will be co-facilitated by Erika Bugaj, LICSW and Janelle McCarthy, Practicum Student.
