In order to promote physical distancing during the COVID-19 pandemic,

I am currently working with clients by teletherapy (i.e., phone or secure video).

I am also offering short-term, reduced-fee, online therapy to essential workers and those on the front lines. Please contact me to learn more.

I am currently accepting new clients.


Dr. Elizabeth Crunk

With warm greetings, I welcome you to my private practice website. I provide counseling to adults in the DC area who are coping with a range of concerns, including grief and loss, complicated grief, traumatic bereavement, breakup recovery, family estrangement, life transitions, anxiety, and depression. 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.
