Michael Wagner, PsyD

I recognize that persons who are suffering often feel most alone precisely when interpersonal support is most necessary. It is my desire, as a psychologist, to accompany you through periods of suffering to the best of my ability. Consolation has been beautifully defined as, “being with the other in his solitude, so that it ceases to be solitude.” It is my goal to provide support and guidance, so that you are not alone as you face relational upheaval, depression, anxiety, or fear. Hopefully this, “being with,” will bring consolation, and eventually lead you toward peace and greater personal growth.

I received my doctorate in clinical psychology from the Institute for the Psychological Sciences, where my research and doctoral dissertation focused on understanding identity formation within today’s culture. Additionally, I received advanced training in the provision of comprehensive psychological assessments from Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, DC.
