Lynn Friedman, Ph.D., FABP, is a clinical psychologist, a board certified, psychoanalyst and a Training Analyst and Supervising Analyst. Also, she is a certified master career counselor (MCC) in full-time private practice in Chevy Chase, Maryland, 1/2 block from Washington, DC, (Friendship Heights metro, red line). She provides evaluation, psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, clinical supervision and career and workplace consultation. She works with individuals and couples. Her sub-specialties are: relationships, anxiety, depression and work-life concerns.

In the career arena, she pioneered a psychoanalytically-informed approach to career counseling: (http://www.ncda.org/aws/NCDA/pt/sd/news_article/98443/_PARENT/layout_details_cc/false). Beyond this, she serves on the faculty at Johns Hopkins University.

She provides supervision to psychoanalysts-in-training and to licensed, mental health professionals. Also, she provides psychoanalysis to psychoanalysts-in-training as well as mental health professionals and laypeople. She has a special interest in helping analysts to overcome intrapsychic, institutional and organizational/cultural barriers to helping patients enter psychoanalysis.

In addition to professional presentations, she actively advocates for psychoanalysis, and the utility of psychoanalytic ideas, in the popular media. This work has included, a nationally-syndicated, Washington Business Journal column, "Corporations on the Couch", over 40 columns in the career section of the Washington Post and an interview about her teaching psychoanalysis at Johns Hopkins University (https://www.google.com/search?client=safari&rls=en&q=lynn+friedman+johns+hopkins+university+freud+lives&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8).
