Due to high demand and limited availability, individual psychotherapy is only open to existing patients of Whitman-Walker Health. We try diligently to manage the volume of requests we receive and to manage the expectations of our patients seeking psychotherapy. There is usually a wait to begin seeing a therapist.

Individual psychotherapy offers the chance to work one-on-one with a therapist to get support, solve problems, and gain insight. Individual psychotherapy might focus on issues of depression and anxiety, trauma, coping with stressors, substance use, or examining patterns in thoughts, feelings and behaviors. Individual psychotherapy can be a stand-alone service, or is sometimes combined with other services and programs (such as psychiatry, group therapy or group substance use treatment). Some substance use programs offer individual psychotherapy as a part of their programming.

 

Current medical patients can learn more about behavioral health services and availability by requesting a consultation through your medical provider. Just let your medical provider know that you would like to speak with a Behavioral Health Specialist. The Behavioral Health Specialist will help determine the best next steps for connecting you to behavioral health care whether at Whitman-Walker or in the community. Each consult is about 30 minutes long and consists of a brief screening and referral ideas for behavioral health care.
