About ME

 

Emily Griffin, LICSW, LCSW-C

Psychotherapist for Individuals, Couples, & Families

 


 

I am a proud native Washingtonian with 18 years of experience serving DC area families. I received my Bachelor of Social Work (BSW) degree and Master of Social Work (MSW) from George Mason University. As a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) in Washington, DC, I have had experience in child welfare, LGBT family support & advocacy, international adoption, court programs, school settings, and integrative in-home parent counseling. In these positions, I have worked with diverse families on postpartum depression & anxiety, grief and loss, trauma, mood disorders, family conflict, behavioral and academic support for school-aged children and their parents, relaxation/stress reduction, media management, bullying (prevention and resolution), healthy relationships, and other parenting needs and concerns.
 

In March of 2013, I had the pleasure of being selected to present at a national conference for school social workers on the topic of parenting strategies with diverse families, including managing media use. 

In 2014, I completed training as a Certified Gottman Bringing Baby Home Educator. I have completed training in Mindfulness, EFT,  Perinatal Mood Disorders, Trauma, IFS, and more.

 

At home, I have had lots of hands-on parenting experience with my husband, four active sons and a young daughter, and am a survivor myself of childhood trauma and anxiety and depression.

My family is multiracial and I am a supporter of BLM and racial justice and adamantly against white supremacy.
