Dr. Washington has been such a blessing to me. She is so thorough and detailed, after every call I get a very detailed summary that I can go back and recap our visit. She always has a listening ear and resources to help you on your journey even if it may fall out of the scope of her expertise. I feel heard, supported, and overall super comfortable sharing anything with her. I never felt judged or condemned for anything; talking to her is easy. I loved being able to share my faith with her and she was able to help support me in that way as well. She is very responsive and always gets back to me quickly. I would recommend Dr. Washington to anyone and can confidently say she played a pivotal role in my growth this year.

Her summaries are very detailed. She responds swiftly to online messages. She sends supportive resources that pertain to items we are discussing. I feel safe in my conversations but she stretches me to think about "the why".

Dr. Washington is an excellent therapist. She is thoughtful and asks meaningful questions. She keeps therapy going outside of weekly sessions with ongoing dialogue. I was lucky to find her!
