Gregory Jones PsyD Gay Therapist Psychologist Washington DC
Licensed Psychologist Washington DC
I help my clients gain insight into their lives, to better understand themselves, and to reach toward their full potential. I am educated as a generalist psychologist, but have received specialized training in eating disorders treatment, addictions, group therapy, and LGBTQ Affirmative Therapy.
It is important for me to listen to my clients’ needs and concerns, and to develop treatment goals collaboratively with them, not from a set perspective that may or may not fit the situation. Therapy with me involves working on symptom reduction, gaining insight into thoughts, feelings, and behavior, and striving to create forward momentum while minimizing setbacks.
I am not your typical psychologist. I am really active during sessions, and believe therapy should not only be healing and insightful, but fun and humorous at times. I feel honored to be let into the lives of my clients, and to be able to engage in a career I love.
