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.
Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here. My tools range from innovative new mind-body modalities (e.g., Energy Psychology) to the most ancient spiritual/energetic modality (shamanic healing). These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.
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.
"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.
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 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.
As your future therapist, it is my goal to help you work through the things that have been causing problems within your life. I am passionate about servicing you. I believe that everyone can become who they want to be and live a purposeful life. You are already equipped with the tools you need, but, it is my job to assist you with learning how to utilize your strengths to combat your weaknesses. Therapy can be scary and it can be uneasy at first. However, I can sure you that you won't be alone and I will be assisting and giving you the courage you need to defeat it. Mental is wealth and you too achieve it!
Some people come to me overwhelmed, exhausted, and insecure. Others need help with an important life decision. My approach is active and collaborative: I trust their knowledge of themselves and offer my insights, skills, and training to achieve lasting change and healing. Together, we identify ways to align their daily lives and environments with their long-term goals and values. We turn avoidance into action and integrate unaccepted aspects of themselves through mindfulness and self-compassion. My approach is warm, nonjudgmental, and genuine. I am passionate about helping people reduce their suffering and build lives they find meaningful and fulfilling.
Our personal work in therapy should bemuch deeper than just coming in to be heard. I believe people who seek therapy, not only desire to feel heard, but deeply desire to gain the solutions, insights and new ways of living that will change their lives for the better.
Having experienced and survived trauma personally, I understand the challenge of reaching out to someone. You may feel isolated, fearful of the unknown and what is happening. The biggest step is the first one and together we can continue to build the blocks to your full potenial and empowerment.
I have been in full-time private practice for over 20 years. My clients find solutions, direction and growth in our time together. No one should live life feeling anxious, depressed, lonely or overwhelmed with stress. Life transitions can be challenging no matter what phase in life you are in. Going off to college, career decisions, marriage or divorce, empty nesters, etc. I can help you navigate your path. I provide a respectful, confidential and encouraging therapeutic environment. My motto is: There is always hope!

I believe that no one is broken. We have all learned strategies to survive as best we could. Therefore, we can learn new strategies and alter our lives so that we can thrive. As a psychotherapist, writer, and life coach, I have worked for the past 40 years in both Australia and America. I was a director of a Family Therapy Program in Sydney, Australia, and later worked with the Family Institute at Northwestern University. My belief is that the only thing that is wrong is what we've been taught to think and believe about ourselves that stop us from being our true selves. Therefore, my goal is to empower clients to be the hero or heroine to face adversity, overcome anxiety, and create empowering stories that lead to healthier relationships. I am the author of "The Roadmap Home: Your GPS to Inner Peace" an Amazon bestseller and "Fighting for Love: Turn Conflict into Intimacy," coauthored with Mari Frank.
A human being, by nature, is full of contradictions. I believe a strong therapeutic alliance is essential to the therapy process. The experience of "feeling" seen, or felt, or heard, is the beginning of healing. Knowing that while you are unique, you are not alone.
I have been working with Women through Counselling and Coaching for over 20 years. I began learning about The Whole body with Holistic healing and moved on to studying the mind and the barriers we come up against from our own beliefs & values. Human behavior fascinates me so I went on to study positive psychology, personality profiling. NLP, hypnotherapy, and Counselling. Today I have an eclectic style that allows me to use my intuition and professional qualifications to move you in the direction you need to achieve your greatest outcome.
