Lester Kaplan, Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I am an experienced anxiety, trauma and complex PTSD clinician with many years of experience. I work with marital and premarital couples, and loss and grief counseling.
I have taught at universities in New York City, Virginia, and the last twenty years at American University in the District of Columbia. I'm trained in four therapeutic techniques, and have a grounding in psychodynamic psychotherapy.
