Leyla M. Kenny, PhD, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Washington
I treat adolescents and adults to reduce anxiety, eliminate self-destructive behaviors, form emotionally intimate relationships, and increase confidence. I am also on faculty at The Catholic University of America and the Washington School of Psychiatry where I can both learn and teach the latest findings in effective therapy.
Your time and life is valuable. Therefore, I work in a collaborative relationship with my clients to rapidly reach goals and access the root of the problems. Using a number of modalities including cognitive therapy, minfulness techniques, short-term psychodynamic treatment, and neuroscience, I tailor the treatment for each individual.
My approach is active and focused in the current moment. I invite you to visit my website for more details.
