The July 2009 issue feature, "Asking the Experts Where to Find Good Help," is the result of a survey of approximately 1,500 psychiatrists, psychologists, clinical social workers, therapists, and counselors in the DC metropolitan area.

Nearly 800 mental health professionals responded to the survey. Ms. Osterle was named in two separate categories, Generalized Anxiety Disorders and Major Depression.
