My office is comfortable, private, and therapeutic. I strive to create a pleasant and healing environment.
The address is 1230 31 Street, NW, Suite 5. The office is right up from the corner of M and 31st, across from the Georgetown Post Office. The group of buildings is called Hamilton Court. There is a gate into the courtyard off of 31st. Go all the way to the back of the courtyard, past a fountain on your right to 1230. Suite 1 is an architecture firm; to the right of that door there is a door to a staircase. Come up those stairs to Suite 5's waiting room. Call if you are having any trouble finding me, or, if the gate is locked. The gate will usually be locked on Saturdays and later in the evening. If you phone and I do not answer, I will call you right back. I may be finishing up with someone in a session before yours, but will see you called and return call promptly.
For many years, I brought my previous Italian Greyhound into therapy and he became very important to many of the people "we" worked with. After he died, I knew in the future I'd want to adopt and train another "canine co-therapist" to join me. In November 2012, I got another tiny Italian Greyhound girl, Charlotte, about 10 pounds, who accompanies me to the office most of the time. She is a puppy and is still in training, but has already warmed the hearts of many, and maybe as important as her connections with others, is that she keeps the therapist smiling and relaxed, in general! Her training is on-going, but she has definitely mastered the task of bounding out to greet people in the waiting room when it is time for their appointment. If for any reason you would prefer that she not be there during your appointment, please do not hesitate to let me know in advance of your scheduled time.
If you are unable to manage stairs, please let me know in advance of your appointment so that I can make arrangements to use an office on the ground floor.
Street parking is usually available nearby, but there is also a garage under the building. If coming up 31st from M Street, turn left into the alley just before Hamilton Court. The garage entrance is on your right , and the staircase from the garage leads right up to 1230.
