headshotMy practice is now conducted remotely through a HIPAA-compliant site for either video or phone sessions.  Please contact me to find out more about my secure, convenient, and effective teletherapy options.

It can be challenging to look online for a therapist.  First, I honor your courage to seek therapy and as a result, work with compassion and an unrelenting focus on the task at hand.  My specialties include helping clients with relationships, self-esteem, work/life satisfaction, and grief.

With 20 years of clinical experience, I specialize in intensive therapy to help my clients establish and meet their goals.  My approach is active and dynamic, and I encourage my clients to be collaborative so that we can reach their goals as quickly as possible.  By working collaboratively, you can come out of each session with a more thorough understanding of yourself and a stronger sense of control over your life.

As an adjunct professor at the Catholic University of America and faculty at the Washington School of Psychiatry, I stay up to date on the latest research to inform my practice.

Meet Dr Leyla Kenny:

My clients have described me as warm and compassionate yet at the same time relentless and extremely focused.  I am trained in a number of modalities including psychodynamic, cognitive behavioral, and mindfulness. As a result, I can tailor each session to my clients’ needs.

Please feel free to contact me for more information.
