Douglas L Cohen, PhD, Psychologist in Washington
I am a psychologist with over 25 years experience in couples, individual, and group therapy. Those who see me are "normal" women and men with relationship issues that get in the way of having richer, more fulfilling lives. Some issues interfere with finding a good partner while others interfere with maintaining an intimate, supportive and vibrant relationship. Compared to most therapists, I am very active, involved and personal in therapy. I do not just sit back and listen and I do not just give advice. I go beyond listening to confront and motivate patients to change.
It is relatively easy to listen and support. It's much harder to confront someone and to get them to actually change. My patients would tell you that I am caring but tough. I do not hold back from telling patients the truth they need to hear to change their lives.
Reputation for working with CEO's, lawyers, and professionals who like to be in control. Such individuals require a therapist who understands and is not intimidated by them. Extensive experience and skills working with couples in crises involving marital conflicts, sex, infidelity, and parenting. Office hours Monday - Thursdays 7:40 am - 6:00 pm.

Douglas L Cohen's Groups

Individual Therapy Group

I have been leading groups for over 20 years. Group is an extremely powerful and effective mode of therapy for working on relationship problems. In group, we don't just talk about relationships, we work on them live. Patients' issues show up in group interaction helping them become aware of how they affect other people. I work with patients as they interact, identifying ineffective relationship patterns and teaching effective relationship skills. Many patients make faster progress when they are in group. They benefit from the therapy work of other patients who have done more experience in therapy.
