The exact methods used by your therapist in the James J. Gray Psychotherapy Training Clinic will depend on your symptoms, strengths, preferences, and goals for treatment. In general, though, our staff therapists practice Cognitive Behavior Therapy. This is an active approach in which your therapist will help you build new skills for coping with the difficult situations in your life and will ask you to practice these skills between treatment sessions. For more detail on Cognitive Behavior Therapy, please visit the link below, from the major professional organization in the field, the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies.
If you are interested in receiving treatment in our clinic, please call Dr. Erin Sparapani, clinic director, at 202-885-1702. You will receive a call back from Dr. Sparapani within 24-48 hours for a phone screen to determine whether or not our clinic would be a good fit for your concerns. At the end of that call, Dr. Sparapani will let you know our current availability. Please note that we are a small clinic and are often on a wait list. If we are on a wait list, or we are otherwise not a good fit for your needs, Dr. Sparapani may provide you with other resources in the area that might be a better fit.
Our clinic is not a specialty clinic, and we work with adults (individuals or couples) with a wide range of disorders or problem behaviors. Examples include:
Children under age 18 are not treated in our clinic. Also, people who have been diagnosed with schizophrenia or with bipolar disorder we usually advise to seek treatment at other clinics that have medical staff in addition to psychotherapy services.
Therapists in our clinic are not available on an emergency basis. If you are in crisis, please call:
