a caring and qualified therapist
Hilli Dagony-Clark, Psy.D.
I have worked as a psychologist (since 2006) and psychoanalyst (since 2010) with children, adolescents, teens, and adults on issues including anxiety, depression, eating disorders, body image issues, trauma, relationship, identity, and work difficulties.
Additional experience in community mental health clinics, hospitals, group homes, and the Washington, D.C. Superior Courts have prepared me to offer psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to a diverse multiethnic and international population.
My doctorate in Clinical Psychology from The George Washington University, and my pre- and postdoctoral work in urban clinics, have exposed me to a broad range of psychological practices.
My postdoctoral training in child and adult psychoanalysis at the New York Psychoanalytic Institute (NYPSI) enriched my understanding of the complexity of the mind. This classical analytic training has provided me with deep insight into my clients’ symptoms and conflicts.

Am I the right therapist for you?
A joyful and peaceful inner life consists of passion and delight in relationships and work, respect and care for yourself, and mastery over your emotional world.
Loss, trauma, anxiety, depression, and confusion deplete your inner resources. Their pain can make you feel imprisoned.
I will collaborate with you in a non-judgmental, empathic, warm, and curious manner to help you meet your full potential by gaining insight into your conflicts, identifying your roles in them, recognizing and freeing yourself from limiting patterns in your life, and achieving adaptive and practical everyday solutions.
I will help you feel empowered, rather than imprisoned, by your life.
Psychoanalysis isn’t for everyone. My therapy draws on deep understanding of, and experience in, a broad range of therapeutic theories and techniques.
This means I provide supportive treatment when clinically indicated, and recommend psychodynamic psychotherapy or psychoanalysis to patients who will be best served by these methods.
I use my comprehensive knowledge of the mind to help clients understand and overcome their suffering so they can live a life of wonder, joy, and contentment.
