Welcome to Family Psychological Services of Capitol Hill. Dr. Sweeney is a licensed psychologist and mother who lives and works on the Hill. Having moved to Capitol Hill after earning her undergraduate degree, Dr. Sweeney has lived in the district for over 15 years. She cares deeply about DC (Go Nats!) and strives to provide the best possible services for the city that she loves.
Dr. Sweeney utilizes a multisystemic theoretical approach with an emphasis on collaboration and empowerment. Whether you are a parent dealing with the Terrible Twos, a child or adolescent who is struggling with school or friends, a young adult struggling with a quarter-life crisis, or an adult striving to better understand yourself and your relationships, Dr. Sweeney can provide support. At every developmental stage there can be difficulties and Dr. Sweeney believes that with a little bit of guidance, considerable growth can occur during these times. She believes that all people-children, adolescents, adults, and families-have the power to make changes in order to become their optimal selves. Dr. Sweeney works with her clients, never telling them what to do or how to feel, creating a partnership that results in the best outcomes for individuals and families.
