I enjoy working with clients new to therapy, or are returning. I invite those who have experienced a single incident causing distress or more complex issues related to job/family/career/immigration. Let's talk about the grief/loss and trauma, depression/anxiety, anger, possible deportation, family crisis, or parenting issues (heterosexual/same-sex couples) that have become barriers.

Our self-esteem, relationships, or work can suffer as old cognitive, emotional, and behavioral paradigms are applied to new situations, often outside of our awareness.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in District of Columbia, this list of Teletherapyists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in District of Columbia listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

Please discuss with the professional the app you'd like to use e.g. Zoom, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook Messenger or WhatsApp. Professionals sometimes prefer HIPAA tailored apps such as Zoom, VSee or Doxy.me.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in District of Columbia are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in District of Columbia
