Lynn Friedman, Ph.D., Psychologist in Chevy Chase, MD

If you have come to this contact page, you’re thinking about getting in touch with me. The easiest way to reach me is via phone: 301.656.9650. When you call this number I’m, immediately, notified that you’ve called. And I’ll return your call. This gives us a chance to talk with each other and for you to assess whether you think I may be of help. I am a psychologist in Chevy Chase, MD, one block from the Washington DC border and the Friendship Heights metro. Also, I practice psychoanalysis.

Because of the COVID-19, currently, I am offering online therapy, to those who live in Washington, DC and Maryland. However, I am hoping to return to the office after Labor Day. If this interests you, feel free to call me;  we can talk about whether beginning in teletherapy and transitioning to in-person therapy makes sense for our work together.

Sometimes people wonder, what happens when you call for psychotherapy or psychoanalysis. Your call is welcome: 301.656.9650. Feel free to reach out.

Calling Me

Often, during the day I’m working and I’m unable to answer the phone. However, I would like to talk to you. Therefore, I typically return calls in the evening during the week, Monday through Thursday evening. Please leave your day and evening phone numbers as well as the times that it’s easiest to reach you.

I realize that you may prefer to reach out to me via this contact form.* Feel free to do so and I will respond by phone.

However, I have become aware that this contact form is not perfect; on rare occasions, I have not received messages. For this reason, my preference is that you call. In this way, I can be sure to respond to you in a timely fashion. It is my practice to return phone calls and respond to the contact form within one full business day, generally sooner. If I have not done so, please assume that technology has failed me — and, please call, again. I aim to be responsive. Thank you.


*Maintaining your confidentiality and privacy is of paramount importance to me. Therefore, in writing your message, please remember that e-mail is not considered to be a truly secure form of communication. Please do not describe any clinical difficulties in this contact form. Thank you. And, of course, calls are welcome: 301.656.9650
