DC Talk Therapy, LLC, LCSW, Counselor in Washington
We help people in their 20s and 30s navigate the often turbulent period between college and middle age. We have six therapists -- with a combined 85 years of experience -- who specialize in working with young adults. We've helped more than 500 clients make positive changes in their lives, and we'd like to help you too. In addition to individual counseling, we also provide couples therapy/marriage counseling and group therapy. We understand the work demands people have, so we offer early morning (7 am), late evening (up to 10 pm) and Saturday appointments (9 am-4 pm).
We primarily use cognitive-behavioral therapy to highlight clients' unhealthy thought patterns or irrational beliefs. David Sternberg, LICSW, provides individual therapy, as does Amanda Shapiro, LICSW, Matt Sosnowksy, LICSW, and Jehari Jones, LICSW. Kathy Richardson, LICSW, LMFT, sees children and adults. Barbara Donesky, LICSW, provides couples therapy/marriage counseling.
We have two offices in the Woodley Park neighborhood of Washington, D.C., across the street from the National Zoo. It's Metro accessible -- a short walk from Woodley Park or Cleveland Park. Free street parking is available. We can usually schedule new appointments within 2-3 business days.
