15 years of experience

I am committed to providing compassionate and transformative therapy to individuals, couples, and families. I obtained a Bachelor of Social Work from Clark Atlanta University, a Masters in Social Work from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and a Doctor of Social Work from Barry University. With over ten years of experience in the mental health field, I bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to my practice. I am licensed to provide therapy in Georgia, Alabama, Virginia, and Washington, DC, demonstrating my commitment to serving diverse communities and individuals in need of support.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

During our initial session, we will begin with introductions and then delve into the particular challenges you are encountering in your life, as well as the areas in which you hope to effect change. You will gain an understanding of my therapeutic approach, and together, we will craft a customized plan to address these issues in subsequent sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I am dedicated to cultivating a welcoming and non-judgmental environment where clients can feel truly seen, heard, and empowered to delve into their thoughts, emotions, and experiences. I recognize that embarking on a journey like therapy is a brave stride towards healing and personal development, and I feel privileged to support you on your path to self-discovery and positive transformation.

Dr. Washington is a newly trained Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) therapist who engages clients in an eight-phase treatment that helps reprogram memories of traumatic and stressful events.
