Angela Sarafin, LMFT

Licensed Therapist

1200 G St NW, Washington, District of Columbia

Anxiety can be overcome. There are many causes of anxiety and rather than trying to make the anxiety disappear, it is often more helpful to learn how to function in spite of the feeling. Most people have some area of life in which they experience exceptions - where the anxiety is either not present or where the anxiety is just a little bit different. We can use those exceptions to strengthen your ability to manage anxiety in other areas of life. We will also explore the positive sides of anxiety - how it serves to protect you and whether those protections are still relevant for your current life.

James J. Gray Psychotherapy Training Clinic

4400 Massachusetts Ave., Asbury Building, North Wing, Rm 228, Washington, District of Columbia

The exact methods used by your therapist in the James J. Gray Psychotherapy Training Clinic will depend on your symptoms, strengths, preferences, and goals for treatment. In general, though, our staff therapists practice Cognitive Behavior Therapy. This is an active approach in which your therapist will help you build new skills for coping with the difficult situations in your life and will ask you to practice these skills between treatment sessions.


Children under age 18 are not treated in our clinic.

Intense feelings of anxiety and overwhelming stress can prevent you from being productive as you want, can negatively affect your quality of life and produces uncomfortable physical symptoms. A constant state of stress can also lead to clinical depression. Our therapists treat the whole person and not just the symptoms. Therefore, you will receive assistance with exploring the underlying fears/worries and develop better problem-solving and coping skills. Each anxiety therapy we use (i.e. CBT, Exposure Therapy) may be used alone or combined with other types of therapy. Contact us today to learn more about our person-centered approach to anxiety and stress management.

Anxiety Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Washington, District of Columbia

While most treatment approaches for anxiety and stress are effective on the surface, they don’t treat the real problem. Mantras, deep breathing, and rational dialogues about your fear being irrational rarely work---for most people don’t believe it or you! Imagine if you can trick the brain into changing without you telling your conscious mind that you are changing it? Problem with anxiety and stress is that the brain in this state knows you want to change it and it resists. Contact Kevin@kevinfleminphd.com for the ultimate stress and anxiety solution that will literally change your brain's autonomic nervous system patterns while you sit on your butt. 877-606-6161.

Anxiety Counselor

Jade Wood, MA, LMFT, MHSA

Psychotherapist

1400 20th Street NW , Washington , District of Columbia

Life can present you with difficult situations which are hard to process and move past. These challenges are not on your timeline and affect everything. Having worked in many healthcare settings, I am familiar navigating life-changing events and grief. I understand the territory of encountering loss, coping with trauma, the complexity of the medical system and living with illness. These issues can have ripple effects on your relationships, sense of self and perceptions of the world. I know how complex things can get, and I will support you during this process.

Anxiety Counselor

Reginald Cunningham, EdD, LPC, LCPC

Counseling Psychologist

2000 P Street, NW, Suite 200, Washington, District of Columbia

I can help you identify and address the thought and situations that are contributing to your anxiety. In a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental environment, you can work through difficult emotions and learn ways to gain more control over your thoughts and your life. In your counseling sessions, you can also develop more self-awareness, breathing techniques and other mindfulness-based stress reduction strategies to reduce anxiety and tension.As you develop more mindfulness, you can also begin to identify, examine and address any self-limiting behaviors or negative self-beliefs that keep you from coping effectively.

Anxiety Counselor

Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor

1629 K Street, N.W., Suite 300, Washington, District of Columbia

Anxiety and stress go hand in hand. Anxiety is a customary reaction to a stressful situation. But, in some cases it becomes excessive and can cause sufferers to dread everyday situations. Stress is a reality for all of us. But, it does not have to overwhelm us. Some people may have a genetic predisposition to anxiety. Early traumatic experiences can also reset the body's normal fear-processing system so that it is hyper-reactive to stress. The goal would be to; rid the exaggerated worries and negative outcomes in unknown situations. I will counsel you on the many ways to reduce the amount of stress in your life, along with techniques to adjust your reaction to those factors.

Anxiety Counselor

Marsha Lucas, PhD

Licensed Psychologist

1350 Connecticut Ave, NW at Dupont Circle, Washington, District of Columbia

Everyone talks about stress and anxiety, but for many of us, it gets to be too much — interfering with work, sleep, relationships, health, or just being able to enjoy life. There are many options to help reduce the ways anxiety and stress "hijack" you, and to better manage and reduce your stressors. As a psychologist and a neuropsychologist, I'll work with you using the best strategies and practical ways for you to get past the obstacles that stress and anxiety can cause, making excellent use of the ways your brain and mind can shift your response to stress, and helping you move forward in your life with greater freedom and ease.

Anxiety Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Washington, District of Columbia

Everyone experiences anxiety at some point, but for some the anxiety is so frequent or intense that it interferes with their lives or even triggers panic attacks. I use Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) to help my clients get a sense of control over their own anxiety. We collaborate to learn skills to reduce the frequency or intensity of the anxious feelings, to tolerate the anxiety when it does occur so they can still function through it, and to practice habits that reduce stress and improve general mental health.
