Cherian Verghese Ph.D.
Counseling, Psychotherapy, and Consultations.


Thanks for taking the time to look through my private practice website.

I am a Licensed Psychologist in Washington, DC and have an independent practice where I provide counseling and psychotherapy for individuals and couples. Additionally, I maintain consulting, teaching and training relationships with several of the area’s universities and institutes for advanced psychotherapy training.


I work primarily with adults, including college students, and help them address:

  • anxiety
  • depression
  • relationship issues and difficulties with emotional and sexual Intimacy
  • couple and marital problems
  • academic and work inhibitions; and problems in motivation and commitment.

Additionally, I have particular expertise in working with:

  • international and immigrant populations
  • college students
  • life transitions
  • bicultural identity and relationships

Please feel free to call me for a telephone consultation and/or to set up an initial appointment. Although a less confidential medium, I can also be reached via e-mail.
