Hi, I’m Jeremy Mohler, LGPC, a therapist licensed in Maryland and Washington, D.C.
I imagine you’re looking for a therapist because there are things about your life you want to change. Maybe you’re tired of feeling stressed. Or you want to communicate better in your relationship. Or you need help with a big life transition. Or you want to enjoy life more.
I can help you find the root causes of the patterns and behaviors that get in the way of living the life you want. Once those root causes are addressed, you’ll be able to make choices to help achieve your goals and uncover your true potential.
I take a hands-on but nonjudgmental approach. My goal is for you to feel safe enough to explore all parts of yourself, even those that you don’t want anyone to know about. I believe in meeting you where you’re at. You might need help figuring out what you’re truly feeling about a situation or decision. But I’m also willing to offer specific, actionable advice, like healthy communication skills or tips for being consistent with self-care.
I use mindfulness, Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, and an anti-oppressive, trauma-centered, systems framework to provide a safe, nonjudgmental, identity-affirming space where people feel heard and understood.
I also offer mindfulness meditation classes to public institutions and nonprofit organizations.
My writing has been published by the Washington Post, USA Today, and other publications.
Contrary to our country’s mythology about individual people doing great things by themselves, I did not “pull myself up by my bootstraps.” I am influenced by a long lineage of teachers, healers, and writers, including Tara Brach, Hugh Byrne, Kaira Jewel Lingo, Donald Cohen, Hetty Barnett, and many others.
Many years ago, a broken heart led me to seek out therapy, both one-on-one and a therapy group. I learned how to soothe my anxiety, be more real with others, and—most importantly—be compassionate to myself.
Along the way, I transitioned careers from marketing for Fortune 500 tech companies to advocating for economic and racial justice in Congress and in statehouses and city halls nationwide. I also lived and trained as a meditation teacher at Washington, D.C.’s Lamont Dharma House, a yoga and meditation residential center connected with the Insight Meditation Community of Washington (IMCW).
I bring all of this experience to helping people find work-life balance, communicate better in relationships, find the one in dating, stop burning out from activism, and more.
