Black Psychotherapy

We are a private practice in Bethesda, Maryland and Washington DC. We understand the problems of the black community in the Washington DC area. The need for black psychotherapy has been misunderstood. Some of us may have grown up in families that looked at counseling as a sign of weakness or mental illness. But we now know that therapy is used by people of all cultural backgrounds to grow and improve yourself as a person.
