In times like these, mental health is everything. On any given pandemic day, you might be feeling sad, stressed, anxious, detached, reactive, irritable, or just plain ground down. The one thing you *don’t* feel like is yourself. You’re also finding that — with the volume turned down on external distractions — your deeper concerns are getting louder. Perhaps your relationships are stagnant or suffering. An old betrayal or grief might keep coming up. Maybe your inner critic just will not cut you a break. Therapy can really help, and I’m very glad you’re here.

The symptoms and other problems that bring us to therapy are some of the worst happenings of life, ones we'd naturally prefer to get rid of. With a therapist's help, however, our symptoms can also become an opening to a new way of living, even an opportunity for a new beginning. Our symptoms ask us to seek help with the hope that we may learn to better help ourselves. With proper support we may come to see that our symptoms and difficulties were the first steps of a healing journey, the first sparks of a lifelong process of learning.

Often people seek therapy when emotions are increasingly distressing, or relationships or life circumstances are unsatisfying. Therapy can help clarify your current situation, help you understand how you arrived at this point, and formulate a path forward. I describe my approach as active, compassionate, and empowering. My role is to create a safe and supportive environment where you can freely explore your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment. Through mutual respect and trust, we can create an atmosphere of curiosity where you can also be challenged to do the valuable work of self-exploration, growth, and change.

Hello. I am Dr. Courtney Dinsmore. I help individuals and couples who want better relationships so that they feel content, happy and fulfilled. Sometimes we loose our equilibrium. In your life, this may look a few different ways. You may feel that you are clearly communicating what you want and need, but people don’t seem to understand you. You become angry over minor things that did not used to bother you. It is more difficult to relate to your partner or engage in the intimacy you once had. Things that used to satisfy you no longer do. You love your family, but wish you were closer.

In 30 years of practice, my peers have consistently recognized me in WASHINGTONIAN's "Best" therapists. I love my job; I get to connect with patients deepest psyches, sharing intense joy and pain on the path to fuller lives. Therapy involves more openness, vulnerability, and self awareness than you imagined possible as you work through shame, guilt, trauma, naivete, passivity, dependencies, insecurity, etc. You take responsibility for bad habits, limitations and poor decisions. Consequently you take better care of yourself and your loved ones, achieve goals, resolve/manage stressors, grieve losses, and improve relationships, job performance and decision making.

Many of us are looking outside ourselves for love, fulfillment and joy only to find ourselves deeply dissatisfied, lonely and separated from connection and intimacy with others and ourselves. Life can be difficult and is filled with challenges and traumatic experiences that require our attention and care in order to heal. We are skilled at silencing the aching inside via escape hatches: excessive shopping, over/under eating, using drugs or alcohol, sex, gambling, gaming, etc. I believe the therapeutic relationship can offer support as we move into freedom by learning to live in the present moment with all life has to offer.

Being "sane" in this world might be crazy. If you’re looking for a therapist who will not pathologize you or talk down to you, we might be a good fit. Whether or not you are dealing with extra baggage like anxiety, depression or relationship problems, you are bound to feel overwhelmed right now. This doesn’t mean that you aren’t doing ok, or even thriving, in other areas of your life. I get that. I also get that thriving in some areas of life doesn't mean you aren't really, deeply struggling in other areas. You can look completely put together, but not feel that way at all some of the time.

You and your partner feel stuck and don’t know how to make things better. Arguments can go in circles and never feel resolved. Sometimes the smallest disagreement can escalate quickly. You don’t know why it has to be this hard when both of you want to feel understood and cared for. Maybe major life transitions and changes have made it hard to feel as connected as you used to. You miss feeling close, and like they have your back. Talking about your issues doesn’t seem to help, but avoiding them isn’t working either.
