I am currently conducting all sessions by teletherapy (i.e., phone or secure video) in order to stay connected and continue providing support
during the ongoing pandemic.

Dr. Elizabeth Crunk-Sikhuashvili

With warm greetings, I welcome you to my website. I provide mental health counseling to adults in the Washington, DC area who are coping with a range of concerns, including grief and loss, complicated grief, traumatic bereavement, grief stemming from the loss of a difficult or conflicted relationship, pet loss, breakup recovery, family estrangement, and life transitions. In particular, I specialize in treating adults who are bereaved or who have experienced a loss. My specialized training and over ten years of research experience in grief and loss equip me to help individuals to navigate these challenging experiences.

My office is conveniently located in DuPont Circle by the DuPont metro station. Please contact me to schedule a free, brief phone consultation.
