Simona Dumitrescu Murnick is a board-certified child and adolescent psychiatrist in private practice in Washington D.C. She has a particular interest in the integration of psychotherapy and medication management. Dr. Murnick completed her fellowship training in 2005 at the Cambridge Health Alliance of Harvard Medical School. She has maintained a private practice since that time, and has held positions in the Psychiatric Emergency Service at Cambridge Hospital and at Harvard Vanguard Medical Associates. Since moving to the Washington area in 2011, she has continued to develop her interest in a range of therapeutic modalities. Coming from a psychodynamic background, she also integrates strategies from dialectical behavioral therapy, sand therapy, and internal family systems into her clinical work. For the past several years, she has presented a seminar introducing DBT concepts to the fellows at Children’s National Medical Center.

Britt Rathbone is a licensed clinical social worker, specializing in the treatment of adolescents. Mr. Rathbone graduated from the School of Social Work at Columbia University in 1986, and has worked exclusively with adolescents and their families since obtaining his degree. Mr. Rathbone treats a wide variety of adolescent mental health issues, and has a special interest in challenging and difficult to treat adolescents, and teenagers who have had previous treatment failures.

He is active in training other therapists, speaks often to professional and lay groups on issues of adolescence and taught the course Clinical Social Work With Adolescents and Young Adults to advanced level social work graduate students at the Catholic University of America for many years. He is the coauthor of two professional books DBT for At-Risk Adolescents: A Practitioner’s Guide to Treating Challenging Behavior Problems and What Works With Teens, as well as the parenting book Parenting A Teen Who Has Intense Emotions. Washingtonian Magazine has consistently named Mr. Rathbone one of Washington’s best therapists for adolescents, and one of Washington’s best therapists for group therapy.
