Welcome

Welcome ! My name is Dr. Kathy Galleher. I am a licensed clinical psychologist with over 20 years of experience.  I offer individual therapy for adults in the Washington, DC metropolitan area, and specialize in individual psychotherapy.

 

At some point in their lives, many people find themselves caught in patterns or habits that are make them unhappy and are difficult to stop. These can be emotions (anxiety, depression) or behaviors or relationship patterns. We often get down on ourselves when what we really need awareness, support, acceptance, and compassion in order to change.  I have helped a number of people to find greater freedom and peace in their lives.

Let’s see if I can be helpful to you.Louts 2

Specialization:  I work with adults from many walks of life. My work is with individuals, rather than children, couples or families (those are different specialties). I  have experience working with a wide range of issues including depression, anxiety, self-esteem, sexual compulsivity, childhood trauma as well as personal growth questions.  I often incorporate Mindfulness practices into therapy.  Mindfulness is an approach to therapy that emphasizes ways to slow down, pay attention to what is happening in the present moment, experience greater peace, develop compassion for oneself and others, and respond to the situation in a more intentional and helpful way.  I also have training and experience in a variety of other approaches including Cognitive-Behavioral approaches, and work with early childhood pain or trauma.   I also have a great deal of experience working with individuals in ministry and religious life.
