About

Hi, I’m Jeremy Mohler, a therapist licensed in Maryland and Washington, D.C.

I help…

  • People wanting to stop struggling with anxiety, ruminating thoughts, and obsessive worrying
  • People navigating feelings of stress and burnout related to work and work/life balance
  • People wanting to fix communication and/or intimacy issues in relationships or dating
  • White people unpacking internalized white racial superiority (though I enjoy working with people of all racial identities)
  • Men navigating today’s shifting ideas about gender (though I enjoy working with people of all gender identities)
  • Activists, organizers, and advocates struggling with hopelessness and burnout

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.

My story

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.
