I believe that my role as a therapist is to create a space where you feel supported, safe, and validated as we navigate challenges together. I will be there beside you as you gain the skills to shape your life the way you envision and work towards your goals. I think that everyone can benefit from therapy, whether it’s short-term to help you through a life transition or longer-term support, I will be here to help and accept you as you are. Many people who are members of the LGBTQ+, kink, or poly communities can feel stigmatized during therapy and I aim to provide a non-judgmental atmosphere for all my clients.

Making changes in your life can be exciting, scary or often a mixture of both. You want to have the right support when you are experiencing a life transition such as gender transition; opening, escalating, or de-escalating a relationship; accepting and affirming a diagnosis of neurodivergence; or navigating the diagnosis or progression of a disability or chronic illness in yourself or a loved one. If you are seeking an experienced and passionate mental health professional to explore the emotional impact of LGBTQIA+ identity, polyamory, or disability, I would like to talk to you more about how I can help.

Hello! Thank you for visiting my page and for considering me for your mental health needs. I am a licensed clinical psychologist in DC and Virginia. Antiracist and identity-affirming practice is very important to me. I help clients navigate mood-related concerns (e.g., anxiety and depression), relationship issues, identity conflicts, and family of origin issues, among others. Seeking out mental health services requires courage and a desire to change. I try to honor this courage by working hard to be present, warm, and responsive every time we meet. Accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy (AEDP) informs my work.

For over a decade, we've worked with adults in their 20s and 30s to help them overcome the emotional, behavioral, and mental health challenges of young adulthood. We have a keen understanding of the demands on today's young adults to succeed academically, socially, and in the workplace. Our goal is to support you in developing necessary skills and resources as you pursue personal, career, and academic success. When work or school performance is a concern, our focus is on the intersection of mental health issues with these needs, two aspects of a person's life that are rarely addressed simultaneously or understood as interdependent.

Together we will work as a team to unlock personal growth and change the way we view the world. My approach is to meet you where you are, operating from the viewpoint that individuals have within themselves vast resources for self-understanding and for altering their self-concepts, basic attitudes, and self-directed behavior; these resources can be tapped through providing an environment where repair and healing are the priority. With me, you can expect to receive empathy and unconditional positive regard no matter what you may be going through. We are here, together, to facilitate change.

Are you feeling overwhelmed trying to navigate adulthood as a 20- or 30-something? Feeling pressure to figure out who you are and what you really want out of life, your relationships, or career? Feeling stuck in a negative pattern that you're aware of but can't seem to get out of? Know you're in need of a change but not sure where to start? Wondering why "adulting" seems so tough, while everyone else seems to have figured it out? You’re not alone in feeling anxious, lost, or stuck. If it feels like you've tried everything, and leaning on friends and family hasn’t been enough, it's time for a change.

Are you in your 20s or 30s and feeling lost? The many changes we experience in early adulthood like graduating from college, moving to a new place, ending a relationship, or starting a new job, can feel overwhelming. Changes that result from life transitions are an inevitable part of life, and much of our happiness depends on how we navigate these times of transition. If you're struggling with some of these changes, you may be experiencing a quarterlife crisis. You are not alone, and we are here to help! Our therapists and career coaches specialize in helping young adults survive their quarterlife crisis and thrive in their lives.

My ideal client is someone who is really ready to do some at times difficult, yet transformative work. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety, depression, ADHD and the common co-occurance of these disorders - although I tend to treat symptoms more than I focus on diagnosis. I use the most up-to-date and most-effective scientific methods for treatment. However, I am by no means a dry and robotic person as this last sentence might suggest! In addition to skill-building, I further help my clients dig deep and learn more about themselves through investigative conversations with the hope of minimizing or even eliminating symptoms.

The vision for Woodford Wellness was birthed from the passion of Dr. Bryant to provide a therapeutic space for persons to bring their entire selves and achieve wellness. To do so, Dr. Bryant integrates both his queer psychological and theological expertise to meet clients where they are. Additionally, Dr. Bryant commonly employs a narrative therapeutic approach with clients to best understand a client’s personal narrative. Such an approach yields the unveiling of a client’s key skills and traits which are fostered to rewrite a client’s personal narrative towards wellness.
