Announcement icon I am offering teletherapy via HIPAA-compliant Zoom for individuals and couples.
The time is right to take action and start therapy, begin to relieve your pain and transform your life. Most of us can’t do it alone. I am here to help you navigate life’s twists and turns, find lasting change and thrive. Together, we will work to resolve day-to-day problems and dive deeper into larger issues: anxiety, depression, isolation, family crises, complicated relationships, grief, loss, abuse and trauma. My clients come from around the world and different walks of life: straight, adult women and men; members of the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities; interracial couples; and adoptive parents.
Friendly yet direct, empathetic yet challenging, I will help you develop greater self esteem as well as the tools to build more fulfilling relationships and find the right path for your life today and into the future. With over 30 years experience, I combine talk therapy with behavioral and cognitive techniques in individual, group and couples sessions.
I strive to create a welcoming space where you feel safe to grapple with your thoughts and feelings. A past president of the American Academy of Psychotherapists, I have been included in several of the Washingtonian magazine’s Best Therapist issues. Therapy is a process to find and cultivate joy. Please reach out to me to discuss how we can work together.

Gordon Cohen's Groups

Adult Group Therapy

Group therapy is a cornerstone of my work. It can be an important component in an individual’s therapeutic journey. I lead general psychotherapy groups for adults, and those specifically for gay men. Our sessions are dynamic, experiential, based on state-of-the-art group therapy theory, research and practices. Limited to eight members, our groups are made up of women and men who reflect the multi-racial and international community that is Washington, D.C. Members are single, married and divorced. During weekly, HIPAA-compliant virtual, 75-minute sessions, participants grow to know one another well in this close, supportive and confidential experience.

More about this group

Group Therapy for Gay Men

In 1992, I co-founded the Affirmative Psychotherapy Group to serve the gay community. In conjunction with my colleagues, I offer groups on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at varying times. This is an opportunity for gay men to speak about their lives with one another as well as with highly trained professionals, Group members come to know one another over a long period of time and become deeply involved in each other's lives. There is no outside contact between members, which allows the work to develop within a community of like-minded men in a supportive, safe and confidential setting.
