Welcome to Duffy Counseling Center

The Duffy Counseling Center is a McLean, Virginia-based counseling practice and family-run business spotlighting two siblings; each a successful, licensed therapist with his or her own unique area of expertise:

Working with families and children

Patrick is a cancer survivor and knows firsthand the behavioral impacts and life transformation for families dealing with disease and other issues.

“We each have our own unique experiences to offer, but I particularly enjoy working with kids, adults and families coping with the effects of addictions, mental illness, substance abuse, anxiety and mood disorders,” he says.

Progress towards a healthy and meaningful life

Katharine regularly works with children, teens and adults in hospital, residential and outpatient settings.

“With anyone I see, the goal is to help them feel self-worth and make progress toward a healthy and meaningful life,” she says.

She has worked in areas of domestic violence, sexual abuse and opiate addictions, among other areas.

As a mom to young children and a military spouse, Katharine offers a broad understanding of women’s issues and developmental counseling, guidance and consulting for growth and development from childhood to adulthood.
