Psychotherapy

Our therapists are trained in a variety of approaches and thoughtfully individualize therapy to meet your needs. For information or to inquire about arranging therapy, please call Sunita Duggal at 202-686-7699 ext. 17.

Individual Therapy

Individual psychotherapy is provided for children, adolescents and adults.

We serve a broad community of clients. Not all of our clients have a diagnosable condition. Many of our clients come to therapy to seek insight into difficulties managing relationships and stressful life events. Some have never worked with a therapist before. Other clients we serve are struggling to find their life’s path.

We also work often with clients presenting with:

  • Depressive Disorders
  • Bipolar Disorder
  • Anxiety Disorders
  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder
  • Borderline Personality Disorder
  • Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder

We use multiple techniques to address difficulties that are presented. A common foundation of all techniques used is the establishment of strong therapeutic rapport between the therapist and the client.

Individual therapy approaches include:

  • Play Therapy
  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy
  • Behavioral Therapy
  • Prolonged Exposure Therapy
  • Interpersonal Therapy
  • Dynamic (Insight-Oriented) Approaches

Family Therapy

We offer therapy designed to meet an array of family and parenting needs.

Couples Therapy

We help couples work through relationship challenges. Several therapists are trained in Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), a research based couples therapy technique, in addition to other modalities. Goals of couples therapy include improving communication, addressing conflicts between partners, and enhancing closeness and trust.

Groups

The Wake Kendall Group offers a range of groups to meet current need and demand. We focus on issues best addressed in a group setting. Examples of groups we are currently offering include:
