Karyne Messina, EdD

Psychologist, Psychotherapist

Professional statement

Whether it be through, counseling, psychotherapy, and/or psychoanalysis, Dr. Messina believes in collaborating with patients to help them learn about themselves and to work towards solving conflicts and other life issues that hold them back from optimal living. When Dr. Messina sees a new, potential patient in a consultation for the first time, she assesses what they want from life and from what they are struggling. She does this in collaboration with each individual so together she can recommend and discuss what is best for each person or their child or adolescent at that time. Sometimes people want to work on one problem and later develop a wish to explore and be curiosity about other aspects of themselves. Often in those situations, she works more intensely and with more frequency to search for what has meaning to them and how best to navigate in the world with choice versus feeling they must comply with the wishes of others. Patients are urged to make appointments for themselves. If that is not possible, please call the office. Copays and deductibles can be paid using Venmo, PayPal, Credit Cards or personal checks. Please be certain to complete all sections of the registration form on the Zocdoc website at least 1 business day prior to your appointment. Your initial visit may be delayed if your form is not received within this timeframe. Please note that patients are responsible for missed sessions and sessions cancelled with less than 24 hours notice. Dr. Messina is a Care First participating provider. She is also in the CIGNA network. Co-pay information for your insurance plan can be obtained by calling the number on the back of your insurance card. Dr. Messina looks forward to meeting you to determine what type of therapy is most optimal for you.

I really enjoyed my 1st visit with Dr. Messina. She was easy to open up to, and she asked great questions. I will definitely be returning. Scheduling weekly appointments may be troubling (plus driving to downtown Chevy Chase at rush houris tough.) If you have a flexible schedule she may be more accommodating.

It was such a relief to find someone like her. She makes me feel very comfortable and I was able to open up a lot of deeper issues. I will be going weekly from now! It's really hard to find apsychologist one feels comfortable sharing with. She's also understanding when it comes to payments and offers different forms of payments.
