News and media outlets have analyzed Hillary Clinton’s Democratic National Convention speech in countless ways. Here are two quotes from Hillary Clinton’s speech that relate to the experience of counseling and what you can expect at Emily Cook Therapy:
I will be a President for Democrats, Republicans, and Independents. For the struggling, the striving, and the successful. For those who vote for me and those who don’t. For all Americans. Together.
With the power of alliteration, Hillary Clinton promised to be the president for all Americans. For the struggling, for the striving, and for the successful. The therapists and counselors at Emily Cook Therapy are here to support all people, as well. Whether you’re struggling with anxiety or depression and don’t know how to feel better, whether you’re striving for a healthier relationship with your partner or more effective communication with your kids, or whether you’re feeling successful as a newly engaged couple who is happy and preparing for marriage–we provide counseling services for every person in every situation. We offer individual therapy, couples therapy for married and committed couples, discernment counseling for couples on the brink of divorce or breaking up, family therapy, and premarital counseling.
[It] starts with listening to each other. Hearing each other. Trying, as best we can, to walk in each other’s shoes.
Here, Hillary Clinton speaks to the power of empathic listening, how trying to walk in another’s shoes helps us cooperate and compromise. Whether you’ve been to therapy before, or this is your first time seeking counseling, our diverse staff of counselors and therapists helps everyone. We provide individual therapy for men and women, couples counseling for straight and LGBTQ couples, and family therapy for people of all political parties, religions, cultures, and ethnic backgrounds. We are inclusive, accepting, and non-judgmental. Your therapist will carefully listen to your concerns and use her clinical experience and skills to help you reach your goals. We hold our clients in high esteem, we are humbled by their courage and willingness to face challenges, and we care deeply for their well-being.
Our office in Bethesda, MD is conveniently located near the Red Line Metro station and public parking.

Like Hillary Clinton says, let’s “build a better tomorrow, together.”
