Jen Bissell, MSW, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Washington
When life becomes difficult, it can feel impossible to take a step in any direction, let alone toward positive change. You have taken the first step. My practice is client-centered, tailoring my approach to each individual. My goal is to create a safe and comfortable environment to attend to your emotional needs. We will work collaboratively to develop insight that leads to a greater sense of meaning in your life and deeper connections in your relationships. By taking the time to learn about your story, I will work with you to serve as a guide for healing and change.
By focusing on the therapeutic relationship, we will learn about patterns in other relationships. Whatever your reason for seeking therapy: anxiety, depression, life transitions or wanting to take a moment to focus on you, I look forward to working together.
My practice currently focuses on adults. However, I also have experience working with children, adolescents and families. My office is located in Woodley Park, convenient walking distance to the Metro. Please contact me to set up an appointment.
