We are experienced psychotherapists who help individuals and couples cope with a wide range of challenges. Being human is not easy. Our patients’ concerns are wide ranging and include anxiety, depression, grief, trauma, relationship and couples’ issues, search for meaning and authenticity, development of individual potential, and difficult life transitions. We are living in a complex world and we bear in mind the effects of globalization and technology on the people we serve, and the implications for the field of psychotherapy.

Each of us employs an integrative approach to psychotherapy tailored to the individual person or couple. Our conviction is that each unique person to person therapeutic relationship is the foundation for all of our work.

Along with our psychotherapy practice, we are active teachers, presenters, supervisors and consultants, and Dr. Stadter has published extensively on psychotherapy topics. We teach and present both individually, and as a couple.

We practice at two locations; Michael Stadter in Bethesda MD, and Jane Prelinger in Washington DC. Each office has its own specific policies and procedures, which are explained in detail on our individual pages.
