Finding a therapist can be really, really hard. You can look at dozens of profiles on Psychology Today and other websites, trying to feel comfortable and just feeling like nobody really clicks. On the other hand, it may be stressful even to look for a therapist and admit that you want a little help. If you’re reading this and feeling overwhelmed, it’s important for you to know that there’s nothing wrong with those feelings. It’s natural to be a little nervous when you’re looking for someone you can open up to.

Often, people realize at some point in their lives that they would like professional assistance in order to successfully navigate or cope with overwhelming situations, strained interpersonal relationships, or distressing emotional responses to their environment (e.g., sadness or excessive worrying). In addition, most people are also confronted by situations in which past experiences inform their current reactions, responses, and behaviors. Therapy can help individuals to develop awareness and insight into their emotions and behavior, feel hopeful, enact change, and live a more satisfying and fulfilling life.

Healing, change, and growth are possible. Whatever you may have experienced or be experiencing, no matter what imprints you may carry, it is never too late to begin again. Depression, anxiety, stress - these are all real things that are held in the body and mind. The experience of this weight can be painful and isolating, inhibiting you from living the life you imagined. My goal is to help clients find the tools they need to define and live their lives as a person they truly love, and, by extension, to build healthy connections with those around them.

Do you have the desire for change but not sure where to start? Does having the support to help you navigate your depression and anxiety sound like a relief? My goal is to meet you where you are and to push/support you to become a more confident version of you. We get stuck. We subscribe to others expectations. We can operate with a negative filter. We compare ourselves to others. We deserve more, we are more and together we can obtain more. I look forward to helping you uncover what is holding you back from being your best.

We all encounter moments in life that can create a ripple effect in the way we view and treat ourselves. These moments may exacerbate symptoms we would normally be able to manage or they may be the catalyst for something we have never experienced. The coping mechanisms we have used to survive in the past do not define us, and with the support of a good team, we can begin to learn new skills to help move us forward. Finding the right person to talk to can be a first step in finding a path to (re)discovering a more regulated and integrated self.

What type of Alexandria mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Alexandria?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
