Eric Fielding, Ph.D.


Because I treat people and not diagnoses, I help people with a broad range of problems. By listening to people and paying attention to what develops, I collaboratively assist them to understand feelings, thoughts, body experiences, and behaviors. This may remove barriers to living life to the full. We often create these barriers early in life and then continue them through habitual thought, feeling-management, and relationship patterns. Healing occurs in a safe, new kind of relationship. Within this relationship, people may recognize and talk about things they have known and not known. Since the therapeutic relationship is a unique kind of relationship, therapy can feel challenging or painful. Those clients who openly share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences (including a hesitation to share certain things) are often able to move toward their goals.

I treat adults, adolescents, children, and couples using a psychodynamic approach & am a Candidate at the PTI of Contemporary Freudian Society- DC (since 9/2015). With adults & adolescents, therapy is usually talk-based. With children, I use play/art/talking. Parent consultations are an important part of my work with children & adolescents.
