Griffin Doyle, PhD
Griffin Doyle has had a private practice for over 37 years in Bethesda, MD. He worked in psychoanalytically-oriented psychotherapy with children, adolescents, and adults in individual, group, couples, and families. Griffin was introduced to the original DIR model in the 1980s by Dr. Serena Weider and rapidly began practicing the DIR approach under her supervision. He has been incredibly blessed to witness its early evolution and have embraced the multi-disciplinary teamwork both in practice and endlessly learning from each other. DIR inspired him to better examine the intricacies and beauty of early development in all its forms. Griffin continues to work passionately with ASD children and their families with a particular eye towards assisting in enabling parents to bolster their child’s growth AND support the family to thrive as well. His specialization as a senior DIR clinician and faculty member has provided him with the unique opportunity to endlessly learn and expand his understanding of human development. It is imbedded in his clinical perspective with every individual who suffers and seeks to create in therapy with him real enduring change.
