Are you a professional in the DC metro area, thriving in some areas of your life, but feeling "stuck" or "in the dark" in others? Are you grappling with a recent loss, a major decision or life transition, trauma, grief/loss, or symptoms related to anxiety or depression? Do you want more for your life, your career, your relationships? Sometimes the things that happen to us can lead to negative beliefs about our selves/our world-- which seem to get in the way of living the lives we've always wanted. I can help you untangle these beliefs.

*****Very limited availability for new clients; wait list spots available***** I aim to cultivate an atmosphere in therapy that is real and honest - where my clients feel the freedom to cut the crap, not worry about saying the "right" thing, and speak candidly about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, without fear of judgment. The things that we hash through in counseling can be messy, and I deeply appreciate the vulnerability this process requires. I find that a therapeutic relationship like this - one that's safe, comfortable, authentic, and honest - is where so much growth happens.

Hello. If you are considering psychotherapy, a good "fit" with your psychologist is essential. I have been a practicing clinical psychologist for over forty years. During that time, I have also been a psychology professor at Montgomery College. My theoretical orientation is a pragmatic blend of cognitive, humanistic, psychodynamic and behavioral, but I am also a firm believer in the value of positive psychology. I try not to diagnose people, but rather work with the entire individual, especially with their strengths. I am not the "silent, blank-screen" kind of therapist.

Life happens! At some point in our lives we are faced with challenges that effect us personally or professionally. Sometimes we have people we can talk to about these minor set backs. Other times, we wish there was someone we could talk to, honestly, about the most troubling aspects of our lives without fear of being judged. Having a supportive person in our lives who is objective makes a difference in getting through these "bumps in the road". This is, ideally, what a counselor or therapist is for.

I have been helping individuals and couples work through difficult issues in order to have a more fulfilling life for over fifteen years. Having been trained to work with people across the lifespan has enabled me to integrate an understanding of the origins, development and resolution of behavior and relationship patterns which are presently holding the client back from important accomplishments or feelings of well-being in their lives, even though these patterns may very well have historically originated out of a functional need.

Greetings. My name is John Jankowski and I provide psychotherapy for the Washington, DC community. I practice Humanistic or Person-Centered Therapy. This approach creates environments for people to discover self-worth, feel comfortable exploring their own identity, and alter their behavior to better reflect this identity. In additional to Humanistic Therapy, I couple in Existential Therapy which focuses on freedom, responsibility, meaning and purpose. I also use cognitive and behavioral modifications through Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT).

As a person experiencing anxiety, a stressful life transition, overwhelming emotions or symptoms of trauma, you are motivated to feel good again and reclaim your life. You’ve tried to fix it on your own, but nothing seems to work, at least not for very long. You’re worried things might get worse, or maybe they already have. You know healing is possible, but it seems out of reach. Choosing to start, or restart therapy can be scary! You want to make sure you select the right person who you can really connect with and feel confident has the expertise to help.
