Dr. Charney is the Founder and Medical Director of  Roundhouse Square Counseling Center in Alexandria, Virginia. He specializes in anxiety and mood disorders, couples and family therapy as well as Attention Deficit Disorder in adults. Besides his usual practice, he has also treated personnel from the intelligence community.  As a result of unusual circumstances, he had the opportunity to join the defense team of his first spy case, Earl Pitts. Subsequently, Plato Cacheris, the attorney of Robert Hanssen, invited Dr. Charney to join his defense team, which added a further dimension to his experience. With the addition of his third spy case, Brian Regan, he further deepened his knowledge of the psychological nuances of captured spies. As a member of their defense teams, Dr. Charney was perceived by these insider spies as an understanding and supportive figure, which lowered their defensive mindsets and provided a truer picture of their inner lives. He questioned many common assumptions about spy motivations. Dr. Charney elaborated on his findings in Part One of his White Paper, True Psychology of the Insider Spy. Part Two of his White Paper, NOIR: A White Paper – Proposing a New Policy for Improving National Security by Fixing the Problem of Insider Spies, lays out Dr. Charney’s innovative and perhaps controversial recommendations for using what he learned to manage the problem of insider spies better. To educate and promote these concepts and ideas, he founded NOIR for USA, a non-profit organization. In 1968, Dr. Charney earned his medical degree at the Upstate Medical Center, State University of New York in Syracuse. For many years, he has hosted his own cable television show "Psychiatry Today" on Comcast Cable in Alexandria. Since 1975, Dr. Charney has taught psychiatric residents at the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at George Washington University, where he holds the academic rank of Associate Clinical Professor.

After more than 20 years of practicing law, Ms. Holland founded TechMoxie out of a love of technology and the passion for simplifying the complex. She oversees curriculum development and manages a team of coaches who share her love of helping older adults rock their technology. Upon earning her Juris Doctor from the Catholic University's Columbus School of Law, she practiced commercial real estate law with Melrod, Redman & Gartlan for three years and then became the Associate General Counsel for Fannie Mae where she worked for 21 years. Leaving Fannie Mae in 2012, she took a consulting position with Bank of America but had always harbored the dream of becoming an entrepreneur.  For some time, she had been thinking about a business that would teach technology to “late adopters,” both the tech adverse and older generations. A lover of gadgets, Ms. Holland was always playing with the latest technology, testing out apps and troubleshooting devices. She decided to offer a class called “Getting to Know your iPad” at a local community center, and as she recounts, “Bingo! That was it. The class was full with a waiting list. I went to other community centers and started picking up one-on-one clients. It’s mostly coaching, filling in the gaps, and getting the client comfortable with the technology.” TechMoxie was born in 2013 and has since expanded to a network of coaches who are bringing the joy and connectedness of technology to those looking to build job skills and intellectually curious retirees.

Mr. Racine is the first elected Attorney General of the District of Columbia. With his inauguration in 2014, the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) began an era of independence for the agency and accountability to District residents. As the chief legal officer for the District, Attorney General Racine relies on his 25 years of legal and leadership experience to advise the Mayor and District agencies, defend the city in court, and use the law to advance the public interest. He has prioritized data-driven juvenile justice reform, consumer protection efforts aimed at assisting the District’s most vulnerable residents, measures to advance democracy and safeguard public integrity, and legal actions to protect affordable housing in communities across the District. Attorney General Racine has broad and deep legal experience, with a career that spans representing indigent residents in the D.C. Public Defender Service and volunteering as a law student in a clinic supporting migrant farm workers’ rights to serving as Associate White House Counsel in the first Clinton Administration and practicing white-collar and commercial litigation with leading law firms. He was the first African-American managing partner of a top-100 US law firm, Venable LLP, where he led a team of over 600 attorneys, and has also served on the District’s Judicial Nomination Commission. A lifelong District resident, Attorney General Racine attended Murch Elementary School, Deal Junior High School, Wilson High School, and graduated from St. Johns College High School. He also played basketball in youth sports leagues across the city. His commitment to equal justice was inspired by his parents who fled authoritarian rule in Haiti to start a new life in the United States, and by the lawyers of the Civil Rights Movement who used the law to effect positive social change. Outside of his official role, he remains involved with a variety of causes, including youth literacy and mentoring. Mr. Racine earned his Bachelor’s Degree at the University of Pennsylvania and his Juris Doctor from the University of Virginia School of Law.

You will need to have a driver's license or other photo ID to show the security guard and the name registered must match your name as shown on the ID. If you have not previously done so, please include your driver's license number in the comments field when you register online.

Arriving By Metro: The easiest way to come to the hospital is by Metro, as the main entrance is located directly across from the Medical Center station on the Red Line. Cross Wisconsin Ave., turn left and walk north to the North Gate.

Arriving By Car: The hospital's address is 8901 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20889. From DC, proceed north on Wisconsin Avenue just beyond downtown Bethesda and past the intersection with Jones Bridge Road. Walter Reed National Military Medical Center will be on your right (most noticeable is the tall central building). Enter by the second or North Entrance. Please keep in mind that traffic on Wisconsin Avenue in front of the hospital can be heavy during the evening rush hour so you may want to allow extra time to reach the entrance. Please park ONLY in the America Garage, as parking in other lots may may make you subject to ticketing or towing. 

At the Gate: Present your photo ID to the guard in the Security Booth and then proceed to the USO Warrior & Family Center, 4565 Taylor Road, Multipurpose Rooms A& B (see base map here). If driving, you must park in the American Parking Garage. Cars parked in other areas may be towed.
