Kristin C. Jennings, LGSW, (she/her/hers)


Life is a journey, and we often find value in having someone we can trust to help us navigate our way through tough times. I am a Licensed Mental Health Therapist at Takoma Therapy.  I received my master's degree in Social Work from Howard University and am licensed to provide therapy in Maryland and Washington D.C. My purpose is to serve others by meeting them where they are and creating a comfortable and safe space for them to share freely.      

I specialize in Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness and Person-Centered Therapy that helps identify feelings of anxiety, depression, suicidal ideations and pain associated with grief and loss.  I also concentrate on identifying compulsive behaviors such as emotional eating, mood disorders, marital and couples’ conflict, divorce, infidelity, crisis management, trauma and serve those who identify with the LGBTQI+ community.  

I am empathetic and understand pain, however, I believe that despite tough times there are strengths to be built upon.  Through coupling a strength-based perspective with a holistic approach, I help you create wellness strategies that empower you to maintain balance and prioritize self-care amid grappling with life’s complexities.  

Here at Takoma Therapy, we want you to know that you are not alone, and we aim to help you grow stronger.  I look forward to building a therapeutic relationship with you to connect the dots - one session at a time.
