Kensington Outpatient Clinic

We are excited to announce the opening of our Kensington Outpatient Clinic located at 10400 Connecticut Avenue, Suite 500, Kensington, Maryland 20895.

Our outpatient programs are based on relational theories of the mind.  Research suggests that the quality of the relationship between the provider and the client is the best predictor of good outcomes.  The focus of our work is to support clients in their pursuit of life goals.  While at times medication is necessary, we believe in the restorative power of therapeutic relationships.  For very complex and traditional treatment-resistant cases, modern biological treatments are made available such as Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation.

  • Psychiatric Assessment and Consultation
