About Emily Siegel, LMSW
Emily Siegel, LMSW, is a clinical social worker and therapist at WCWCW in Bethesda, Maryland, caring for children throughout Montgomery County and the Greater Washington area.
Emily enjoys working with preschool, school-aged children, and teens experiencing a variety of struggles including anxiety, ADHD, attachment issues, disruptive behaviors, and potty accidents.
Emily finds that the most effective way to connect with and support children in therapy is through a playful, non-judgemental approach. She believes that the most successful interventions work to understand and support each part of the family unit in order to best serve the child in need.
Utilizing an integrative, evidence-based approach, treatment is tailored to the unique goals and needs of each client and family. In treating children, Emily values collaboration and works directly with parents and other members of a child’s “team” (e.g., school teachers, medical professionals, and other therapeutic clinicians).
With a special interest in enhancing the parent-child relationship, Emily has received training in play-based assessment and treatment models including Theraplay.
Emily holds a master’s degree in social work from the University of Michigan, where she had the opportunity to learn and practice a variety of clinical approaches including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), Circle of Security, and family therapy.
