Things are getting worse. I’m becoming more and more depressed everyday and I don’t know what to do. Nothing works. Medication isn’t working nor does therapy. I have no real friends and no reason for being here. I can’t stand being around people and I have no real meaningful relationships with anyone. It wouldn’t make a difference if I died. Most of life has been a complete waste and it’s getting worse. I’m starting to resent people in general. I’m constantly alone and becoming more and more isolated. My parents use to be the main and only reason that prevented me from killing myself, but not anymore. Who cares if I die, I don’t care anymore. I don’t connect with anyone and I don’t think I ever have. I’m done trying to connect with anyone, it no longer matters. My life has no meaning, it never has. Last year and the year before were hell and this year doesn’t seem to be any better. Being hospitalized did nothing to help me, and like everything else in my life was a waste of time. Everything is dark. There’s no one I feel comfortable talking to anymore. I’ve trusted people in the past which was a mistake. I’m done putting my trust in people when all they do is let you down. The world just seems so apathetic and cold. My life has always been pointless. All my life I’ve struggled with want I want to do with my life and I still don’t know. I’m done reaching out to people and I’m done trying to form connections with people. There’s no reason for me to be here, no reason for me to be alive. Life is just so mundane and I can’t take it anymore. I’m done living in pain and I’m done suffering. Suicide is the only way out for me.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, a Certified Traumatologist and a Nationally Certified Counselor who specializes in mood and anxiety disorders, post-traumatic stress disorder, multicultural counseling, relationship issues and problems associated with emotional and physical abuse.
As a licensed clinical psychologist for 20+ years, I understand that the relationship and "fit" between client and therapist is paramount. I work hard to establish and maintain a relationship based on mutual trust and honesty. We can work together to help you feel less stuck, and more in control.
Ashburn Psychological Services was founded in 2005 by Dr. Michael Oberschneider. The practice has been well received by area professionals and families and has grown to be the home of some of the area's leading psychiatrists and psychologists. We are here to address your needs.

"Everyday is about becoming" I believe that going through a process of self-reflection and change is powerful and brave. It helps us identify how we are getting in our own way in having a better quality of life. In responsibility their is power. Everyone wants to feel content and satisfied with themselves and the world they build around them but we struggle to achieve this goal because we have been hurt, disappointed, betrayed, or doubt ourselves. Find your personal power and change your world. I am with you.
Personal set-backs and conflictual relationships are common problems that we all can face at some point in our lives. My approach is respectful and compassionate. I have doctoral level clinical training, research experience, several publications, and am adjunct faculty at Virginia Tech.
I believe that in order for psychotherapy to be effective, it is the relationship between the therapist and the client that provides room for growth and change. Therapy is such a deeply personal process and I'd be happy to talk with you to see if we would be a good fit.
Therapy is an investment in yourself. The best therapeutic relationship is a partnership with common goals. With over 25 years experience in both inpatient and outpatient settings, Ms. Ryan has worked with diverse client populations and diagnoses. Please call for a confidential phone consultation.
I truly believe that when people allow themselves the time to reflect upon who they are in a compassionate and non-judgmental manner, then, transformation takes place. I provide a safe space in which your personal transformation can begin. I am a Counselling Psychologist and I have trained in the existential phenomenological approach. Nevertheless, my clinical work combines elements from different approaches and focuses on the exploration of the manner in which people relate to themselves and others. The aim of clinical work is to help you become more aware of your difficulties and choices in life. The therapeutic process takes place in a confidential context.
Are you struggling with issues related to trauma, grief, addiction, anxiety, or major life changes? There comes a time when help is needed from a qualified professional to cope with many of life’s challenges. If so please contact us for services for referrals.

"Needing help is not a sign of failure. It is a sign of simply being human." -Anonymous. The issues that arise in life often leave us feeling alone, isolated, defeated, anxious, depressed, fearful, frustrated, and empty. My practice is centered on instilling hope and empowerment, which then fosters change. I can also help you learn to cope, adjust, process and live a life that is centered in making healthy choices; which may help mitigate these painful feelings. Although therapy may be an uncomfortable process for many, it is well worth it. Investing in your mental health is the single best choice you can make for yourself. As an LCSW, my approach is client-centered, strengths-based and revolves around hope and empowering you to achieve a higher level of functioning and understanding of the problem(s) that brought you to seek help. I treat both youth and adults through in-office appointments or online (teletherapy) appointments. I am trained in EMDR, CBT, and DBT.
