My Approach to Helping

Dr. Kaveh is the owner and director of Washington Psychological Wellness, a boutique-style mental health practice located in Montgomery County, Maryland. Washington Psychological Wellness is passionate about helping people live the lives they have envisioned by bringing values of honesty, kindness, humor and compassion to the practice. Therapy can inspire change, create greater self-awareness and improve one's life and relationships. Our clinicians provide a comfortable and collaborative environment in which you can take risks and explore different ways of thinking, feeling and being. Our aim is to help you gain clarity about the underlying causes of problems, provide strategies to help you cope and empower you to trust your inner voice and live each day authentically.

Our clinicians see individuals for a range of issues including anxiety, depression, unsatisfying relationships, LGBTQ issues, overwhelming emotions, self-esteem, academic challenges, family discord, lack of motivation as well as workplace challenges. We also specialize in conducting individually tailored psychological assessments, evaluations and reports.

We believe in the uniqueness of each individual. Together, we will draw on integrative and holistic therapy approaches to find the best solutions to meet your goals. In your sessions, we will address daily obstacles, unconscious emotional challenges and learn to confront our negative thoughts. We are also proud to provide HIPAA-compliant telehealth (online) therapy. We are currently accepting new clients. Feel free to contact us for a complimentary phone consultation!

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Others want to feel like themselves again, find what's missing from their life, or to stop patterns of behavior that feel out of their control. They've usually tried everything they could think of to do on their own, perhaps even used strategies that have worked in the past. But they're still feeling stuck.

1) Anxiety, Depression & Stress
