Suzanne Miller Friedman, PhD, Psychologist in Washington
It's so important to find a therapist who really understands you. That connection becomes the base from which you can take emotional risks essential for deep exploration and enduring change. The bond we form allows our interaction to be characterized by safety, trust, mutual respect, and even humor. I offer a free consultation to help you decide whether we would work well together. Please join me for a cup of tea to share your story, chart a course for how we might work together, and ask any questions about therapy and how I can help you.
I specialize in working with anxiety, depression, trauma/PSTD, and eating disorders.The ingredients central to my approach include strategies for both mind and body. Insight-oriented talk therapy and education are integral to the process but I also incorporate approaches to target symptoms that feel locked in your body.
Exploring relationships is a central part of therapy because our early experiences form how we view ourselves and the world. We have all felt disappointment, loneliness, or rejection. When therapy is a respectful and affirming process, you can use your strengths to develop tools for positive and lasting change.
