Therapy is Not a Dirty Word in DC & Northern VA

Join Us At  Q & A Happy Hour…

Kick off #NoShaveNovember with a very special evening of artistic expression and conversation all focused on men and mental health


Did you know that No Shave November is about more than just showing off your beard game?  We are excited to host a special Q & A Happy Hour & Art Show all about men & mental health!


We will be discussing community, connection, and how men can get the space and tools they need to honor every part of who they are… including the emotional side!


And to keep with our theme of Men, we are thrilled to be hosted by the amazing team at Blank Label DC!  Meet us in their beautiful K St. studio for an intimate evening of real talk and stunning photographs featuring the often unspoken expression of emotion in men – because good therapists know that connecting doesn’t only happen when we talk.

So What Exactly Is a Q & A Happy Hour?

To be clear, this is not a therapy session with cocktails and snacks. Rather it is a social event designed to give people a chance to tap into the wisdom of local experts and get to know real psychotherapists outside of their offices.  It’s a chance to see that mental health professionals are not intimidating and that it actually feels good to talk about what’s real in our lives.

Hosted by Esther Boykin, LMFTTherapy Is Not a Dirty Word Q & A Happy Hour is also a chance to meet other smart people who care about living better lives with real advice from real pros.  We start the evening with some introductions and flow into a panel discussion, followed by mixing and mingling with other guests and therapists.

At the end of the evening you’ll have met some great people and  gotten some solid advice.

No Uptight Offices Here…

Just Beautifully Designed Social Venues

One of the things you’ll learn about therapists is that the details always matter.  It’s the tiny nuances of a situation, setting, or person that often help direct our work.  We bring that same attention to detail to every event.

Therapy Is Not A Dirty Word Q & A Happy Hours are hosted in venues that are designed to bring people together, nurture conversation, and, honestly, just look really awesome! Just check out the photos below to see what I mean.
