About Me

Erin Gelzer

I am a licensed psychologist in the District of Columbia (License # PSY1001488). I graduated with honors from Princeton University with a Bachelor of Arts and received my Doctorate in Clinical Psychology from George Washington University's APA-accredited program.  I completed a Post-Doctoral fellowship at Georgetown University Counseling and Psychiatric Service, where I provided individual and group psychotherapy to college and graduate students. I completed my APA-accredited doctoral internship at Catholic University's Counseling Center. As part of my training, I obtained clinical experience at the Psychiatric Institute of Washington, the DC Superior Courts, and the GW Center Clinic, gaining extensive experience in individual therapy, group therapy, and assessment.

Having been trained in multiple psychological approaches, I incorporate psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, mindfulness-based, and compassion-focused theories in session, enabling me to tailor treatment to clients' needs and goals.

Currently, I serve on the board of both the DC Psychological Association (DCPA) and the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis (ICP+P). I am also a member of the Contemporary Freudian Society, the Washington Professionals for the Study of Psychoanalysis, and the American Group Psychotherapy Association.

Prior to becoming a psychologist, I worked for many years within the corporate realm and earned an MBA from the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania. As a result, I have experience with the challenges of working in a high-pressure corporate environment. I continue to consult with companies on how to apply psychological principles and research to the business world.

What I offer

I offer individual, couples, or group therapy as well as corporate counseling.
