David A. Heilman, Psy.D. – Licensed Psychologist
Many people come to therapy after experiencing emotional distress that has led them to feel overwhelmed and as though they have lost direction in, and control of, their life. I work collaboratively with my clients to explore ways in which they can effectively regain a sense of empowerment, meaning, and control in their lives. One of the most difficult parts of deciding to seek out help and support from a therapist is choosing the right person for you. While there are many options out there, of utmost importance in your decision is finding a therapist you "click" with and feel connected to. If you find yourself connecting with the content on my website, we might be a good match to work together. If so, it is my hope that I might be able to join you on your journey towards greater self-understanding, compassion, and insight.
Being trained as a generalist, I have enjoyed working effectively with a wide variety of individuals. However, I do now specialize in LGBTQ affirmative therapy, Adult ADHD, performance anxiety, mood & anxiety concerns, couples/relationship challenges, and open relationships. It would be a pleasure speaking with you about how I might best be of help to you. I am currently seeing new clients in my Dupont Circle psychotherapy office, and I also am available for teletherapy sessions. I look forward to answering any of your questions.
