Esther Ungar, LCSW-C

EMDR Certified Therapist

Online Therapy

About Me

I work with clients from an attachment and trauma informed lens, which shifts the question from ‘what's wrong with you?’ to ‘what happened to you?’ During our sessions, we will identify your goals for therapy and use treatments that have been proven to help others with similar struggles. I am trained in both EMDR and IFS and incorporate both of these techniques into a holistic approach to trauma treatment, which promotes healing and resilience, and empowers individuals to move forward in their lives with a renewed sense of well-being. I offer in person sessions in MD, as well as virtual sessions to clients residing in MD, DC, NJ and NY.

Education & Experience

I am a licensed clinical social worker and received my Masters in social work from University of Maryland. I work with adults who are struggling with a wide range of issues including trauma, disrupted attachments, grief, anxiety, ADHD, and chronic pain. I have also worked with biological and nonbiological caregivers who were struggling in their parenting.
