Do you feel angry all the time and aren't sure why? Are you having recurring nightmares? Intrusive memories and thoughts? Do you avoid activities and places because they remind you of a painful experience? Has it been months or years and you are not getting any better? We chose to serve our country with a career in the military. We trained to be strong. What happens when, despite our best efforts, we are injured? At times we need professional guidance to maximize our recovery. I am a combat veteran, military spouse and mother.

Are you feeling depressed, anxious or isolated? I work with youth, adults and families dealing with these and other stressors. As we all navigate the "new norm" of pandemic social distancing and distance learning, it may be more difficult pay attention to our mental health needs. It can be hard for us adults but, also has taken a toll on our families/children as they have little to no time to socialize or spend with their friends. There is so much uncertainty too. It is causing our families a lot of stress. Plus , the isolation from COVID-19 is causing depression, anxiety and suicidal thoughts in youth.

At times, we all struggle with the inevitable trials of being human. You may be a parent or partner in a significant relationship struggling with connection, and in need of both practical and emotional support. At times, feelings of anxiety, apathy, and depression arise, and feelings of disconnection and loneliness can take hold. For others, we may be at a crossroads in our life, brought about by divorce, relocation, caregiving for a loved one, or a desire to have a bigger impact in our communities and the world. We may be asking ourselves BIG questions, “what’s next”, “what should I do”, and “what do I want from life”.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Alexandria, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Alexandria are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Alexandria

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in Alexandria you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in Alexandria and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in Alexandria or family therapy in Alexandria.
