I’m seeking recommendations for D.C.-area therapists and psychiatrists. If you can recommend any based on your own experience or that of friends or family members, I’d appreciate it.

My partner (a native Spanish speaker) is currently looking for a psychologist in the DMV. I know she can’t be the only one looking for a psychologist conversant in her native language.
