Dr. Kathryn Ziemer

I am a licensed clinical psychologist based in Old Town Alexandria in Virginia. My goal is to provide you with a welcoming environment where you can feel supported.

I have been providing psychological services to clients for over 10 years. I specialize in depression, anxiety, relationship issues, life transitions, stress and coping, and sleep issues. My approach incorporates cognitive behavioral therapy, interpersonal therapy, relational therapy, and mindfulness. The specific focus of our sessions and the techniques used will depend on your needs and preferences. There is no one size fits all and every client is unique.

I also conduct IQ tests with children for gifted and talented programs and private school admissions. I help kids feel comfortable taking tests so they can perform their best.

I received my PhD from the University of Maryland. I previously conducted clinical work at the National Institutes of Mental Health, the DC Veterans Affairs Medical Center, the University of Maryland Counseling Center, and the George Mason Cognitive Assessment Program.

My experience includes teaching undergraduate and graduate classes at the University of Maryland and supervising the clinical work of psychologists-in-training. I’m on the board of the Health Psychology Section of the Society of Counseling Psychology, and I’m also a member of the American Psychological Association and the Mental Health Professional Group of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine (ASRM).
