TherapyFilter: therapist recommendations in Washington, D.C. area for someone who takes federal Blue Cross/Blue Shield coverage or has an extremely generous sliding scale, has experience with social anxiety and panic disorder, and (preferably) practices somewhere within reasonable distance from the Red Line.

Dealbreaker conditions regarding their ideal therapist would include:

* Practices in Washington DC or Bethesda
* Has significant experience working with panic disorder and social anxiety
* Either takes Blue Cross/Blue Shield coverage or has an extremely generous sliding scale
* Uses some form of evidence-based therapy (be it CBT, contemporary psychodynamic [e.g. panic-focused psychodynamic psychotherapy], whatever)

Things that would be nice include:

* Works out of a location that is accessible via the Red Line, especially Northwest DC
* Has some evening or weekend hours
* Has some experience working with LGBT issues

Anyone who would like to provide referrals anonymously can e-mail at ... Thanks so much, everyone!

Sorry, can't link from this computer, but there ya go. I don't have a specific therapist in mind, but you can doctor shop a bit there, if needed.

Oh, and they treat both men and women, despite the name.

I have someone out in McLean I can recommend. Not in the least Metro-accessible, so maybe a dealbreaker.

a bunch of friends see someone who may be just what you're looking for. do you have a preference in terms of the gender of your therapist? (i know some people care).

Response by poster: Thanks to those who've responded so far. For clarification, I am male, but have no gender preferences. Anywhere in DC would be okay, but I don't own a car, so metro access is a necessity.
