"This process of the good life is not, I am convinced, a life for the fainthearted. It involves the stretching and growing of becoming more and more of one's potentialities. It involves the courage to be."
Larissa Godfrey-Smith, LPC
I am a licensed professional counselor located in downtown Washington, D.C. I specialize in queer topics, mood disorders, behavior modification, attachment, body-focused repetitive behaviors, and obsessive compulsive disorder. My clients are adults, children, teens, and families seeking a safe space to process challenges, practice acceptance, gain strength, and secure support. I strive to maintain a high level of cultural competency, and I am fortunate to have experience working with a variety of genders, sexual expressions, relationship styles, races, and backgrounds.
