Akiko Motomura, Ph.D. Licensed Psychologist

Sex/Gender: Female
Pronouns: She / Her
Ethnicity: Japanese

I am a licensed psychologist, licensed in Maryland and Pennsylvania. I offer online psychotherapy in the greater Washington DC area (DC, Maryland, Virginia), authorized by PSYPACT.

My specialty is working with people with anxiety, depression, and a history of interpersonal trauma. I often work with graduate and college students, other adults with various professions, and those exploring the impact of gender and race on their identity and life experiences.

My goal is to help you understand how your mind works, digest difficult experiences, and develop the capacity to build and maintain enriching relationships with others and yourself. A compassionate and deep understanding of self allows you to live a fuller and more satisfying life, not bound by old patterns. We will be listening to your mind and body in depth, including aspects that are not readily available to us. Understanding your mind in this way can be transformative.

PSYPACT stands for The Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact. It is an agreement between certain states that allows authorized licensed psychologists to practice telehealth across state lines without obtaining a separate license in participating states.
