Get Help + Give Help
We believe that mental health is a priority, and therapy services should be accessible to everyone. When you work with us, just by showing up for your session, you are helping to provide therapy services to others. Our therapists partner with The Kennedy Family Housing Shelter in Petworth to provide group therapy to the residents and their children. Emotional struggles do not discriminate based on class, race, sex, but the context in which we live can exacerbate issues for us. We all need help at different times in our lives, and our mission is to create a system in which you can ‘pay it forward’ to others while valuing yourself by reflecting on your own life.

Become a part of our mission & contact us.
Individual Counseling
We recognize how difficult it can be to create time for self-care and to connect to the important people in your life. We offer you a calm space to unpack the issues that are most important to you. We believe that you are the expert of your world, and we are here to offer compassionate guidance towards your goals. We use a range of specializations, strengthened by our ongoing training and experience, to help you reach these goals. Begin this process here.
Relationship Counseling
Whether you come in on your own or with a partner, we consider how you are impacted by your relationships. We will help you to connecting with one another so that you can bond in a way that may be difficult to do when you are on your own. Relationship counseling support may include couples therapy, pre-marital therapy, separation guidance, or everything in-between. To better understand yourself and your partner, start here.
Play Therapy
We specialize in providing play therapy for children and their families. For children, therapy work looks like play. We create a safe space for children to freely express the full range of their emotions, which may be difficult for you and them when expressed at home and/or school. The therapeutic toys in our playroom paired with our interventions will help your child to process, heal, and move forward with greater confidence. To get your child the help they need, start here.
Caregiver Support
For the Sandwich Generation, Caregiver Support is becoming an increasingly prevalent mental health concern. Adults between the ages of 30-40 are juggling the responsibilities of children and aging parents. Erica Greenspan, LICSW of Kennedy Counseling Collective Counseling Metro DC, will work with you to navigate the burden that can come with balancing roles, while making time to care for yourself. Contact us today to get more information.
Virtual Therapy
We believe that a good fit is important between therapist and client, so we provide virtual video therapy options to work with you when you are unable to meet in person. We are also able to provide exclusively virtual therapy if you live internationally. Contact us today to connect.
