Dr. Daryl Johnson

(LPC, PhD)

About Me

I am a licensed professional counselor and psychologist in Washington, DC with over 10 years of experience working as a psychotherapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems and self-esteem. I also helped many people who have experienced events and relationships in their lives which take a toll on their confidence. I help couples improve their relationships by focusing on increasing healthy communication, decreasing conflict and improving boundaries.

I have been trained in a multitude of evidence-based practices including Attachment-based therapy and the Gottman method to treating couples which all inform my current approach to counseling today. I am here to listen, support, encourage, guide and coach couples. I will partner with you to create an effective plan that best fits your needs at a pace and in a setting that is comfortable for you. My approach is couple centered and goal oriented.

I look forward to working with you!
