Gray & Associates
WHO I AM
As a licensed clinical psychologist in the District of Columbia, I have had the opportunity to work with clients presenting a variety of concerns. I have a particular passion for helping clients struggling with adjustment concerns, career concerns, depression and suicide, anxiety, other emotional challenges, and spiritual concerns. I also work with people dealing with issues related to sexual identity, orientation, and interests. I have been in clinical practice for nearly 10 years and enjoy working with individuals and couples.
My clinical (or theoretical) approach is cognitive at it's core. That is, I focus on the relationship between a person's thoughts and their feelings and try to help them identify more adaptive thought patterns in order to have a more desirable emotional experience. Basically, we work together to try and help the client "feel the way they want/choose to feel." Of course, that doesn't mean that we ignore the past or early relationships and experiences because those maladaptive thought patterns didn't pop up on their own. (Technically, that means I work from a cognitive-behavioral and psychodynamic foundation and formulation.)
It has been a pleasure to manage my practice over the last few years, but I have taken a position in the Howard University Hospital Faculty Practice Plan. What does that mean? Simply, I no longer have a private practice. HOWEVER, I am still providing therapy services! Now, they happen through the hospital which can mean good news because it means that paying via insurance is now an option. To check for appointment availability or insurance coverage, please contact (202) 865-6611.
Wishing everyone good mental health.
