Therapy is a collaborative process in which you describe your struggles and your vision for how I can help you. My goal is to create a safe, supportive and non-judgmental therapeutic environment to facilitate change and growth, allowing the development of increased personal insight, compassion for yourself, and greater freedom to work through life challenges. I have experience providing treatment to a range of individuals from young children and teens, to young adults entering the work force, to new parents learning to manage toddlers, and older parents adjusting to the ever-changing configurations of their families and lives.

My clinical expertise includes depression, anxiety, ADHD, relationship issues, & life transitions. I work w/ families as an entire unit & separately w/ individual members - to guide parents toward stronger connections w/ their families, help children identify & express their feelings, & assist adults in finding a healthy balance of independence and intimacy.

I appreciate and respect the path you’ve taken and am honored to hear your story. I will help you begin a process that deepens curiosity and insight, enlivens personal wisdom, and empowers you to build inner strength and healthy relationships with other people.

Liz Merrill's Groups

Group Therapy for Teen Girls

Georgetown Psychology is in the process of developing a new group program for teen girls experiencing anxiety, depression, and relationship difficulties. This will be offered in all office locations (Downtown Bethesda, Georgetown, and McLean, VA) and is set to be launched in late fall 2019 / early winter 2020. Please contact me if you're interested in your daughter participating in such a group, but please also be aware that the specific group focus and/or demographic could change as the development process continues.
