About ME


Emily Griffin, LICSW, LCSW-C

Psychotherapist for Individuals, Couples, & Families



I am a proud native Washingtonian with 14 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. I have recently been selected to contribute as a special correspondent on The American Family blog radio show.

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.
