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.
I provide professional, results-oriented counseling with a focus on Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a method that more quickly and effectively brings about positive changes. As a Marriage and Family Therapist, I also work extensively with couples and family members on relationship issues.
Professional counselor since 1993. I worked as a public mental health clinician 1994-2000. Although grounded in counselling & psychotherapy methods (cognitive/behavioral, psychodynamic, family & brief therapy models), I specialize in cutting edge mind/body/energy/spirit modalities.
"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.
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.
My sensitive and engaging, direct and practical, style is reported by my clients as one of their attractions to working with me. I work with Children, Adolescents and Adults, addressing ADHD, depression and anxiety, divorce, loss and medical trauma. . I would be honored with your trust in me.
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.
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.
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.
I am a mature aged male psychologist, with a combination of tertiary training and life experience working in both Blue and White collar settings (before my Psychology training) as well as having worked in settings like co-facilitating Domestic Violence Groups and an Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) in a prison farm setting. I also offer services after hours (Tuesday & Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings) for those in the workforce. This is in addition to offering Medicare Telehealth consultations for those in applicable areas, e.g. those in the country, or FIFO workers while on-site. I also offer the Prepare-Enrich relationship enhancement program (more info on my website.) In terms of presenting issues these include: Depression; Anxiety; Stress; Workplace difficulties; Couple counselling; Anger related concerns; Dealing with grief, loss and other changes; Gay and Lesbian issues and; Addictions - to name a few. For those wanting more "technical" information, broadly speaking I use a Humanistic orientation to my work, using techniques and insights from a combination of; A Rogerian perspective; Positive Psychology techniques; Transactional Analysis; Mindfulness; Systems Psychology; Acceptance and Commitment therapy(ACT); Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT); and other techniques acquired via my continuing professional development. The choices as to what is used depend on the individual clients circumstances and the presenting issue or issues. Clients report that they like that I have a combination of life experience, am a "few steps removed" from their lives and that I often supply handouts, or make suggestions of books to read or movies to watch to assist them with what they have come to see me about.
What I love about being a Psychotherapist is having the capacity to be a holder of hope. A holder of hope is a person who can join with you in the darkest hour, in the depths of despair and can see you as whole and joyful and can hold that vision even if you cannot see it for yourself yet.

Creative, practical treatment that promotes resilience and helps you build the life you imagine. I don't believe in lingering too much in the past to help you with the present or future.

When you feel you no longer need to see me, and you trust the coping skills and perspective you have developed, my work is complete, and that is my goal.
