Margot Lamson is a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker in Dupont Circle in the District of Columbia. Margot works with children and adults of all ages, religious and ethnic backgrounds, and sexual orientations. She treats anxiety, depression, and ADHD, as well as trauma and grief and loss. She takes a holistic approach to therapy, which includes talk therapy and mind-body interventions. While she has extensive experience working with families and children, Margot also enjoys working with adults, especially those with a history of acute or complex trauma.
Margot is psychodynamically oriented and her work is rooted in attachment theory and object relations. She also has training in EFT/tapping, mindfulness practice, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), play therapy, and grief and trauma interventions. She spends time getting to know her clients before developing an individualized treatment plan that fits in with their background and goals.
Margot believes everyone deserves the chance to grow and heal. She enjoys working with clients to overcome difficult life transitions and find their resiliency in their journeys.
Before working in private practice, she worked with elementary to high school-aged students in school settings, an outpatient clinic setting, and provided in-home family therapy for high-risk youth and their families.
