DC Metro Therapist - Janet Osherow I have been working with children and adolescents for 20 years and as a licensed social worker since 2006. I provide therapy to children, adolescents, and adults. My experience includes addressing depression, low self-esteem, and behavioral issues as well as helping individuals and families cope with chronic illness, such as cancer and HIV/AIDS. I will provide individual and/or family therapy as needed. My primary focus has been working with children and adolescents from diverse backgrounds. Through this work, I have developed a strong interest in family therapy. Often, I work with the entire family to address communication and stress reduction/coping skills.
