Anybody who knows me knows I’m a pretty small person. Both in height and weight. I have always been...
Therapy is a partnership between you and your therapist. You work together to find the causes of problems, as well as create solutions and strategies for resolving them. You end up with peace of mind and the ability to reconnect with the people close to you.
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 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Are you feeling stressed, distressed, anxious? Overwhelmed at work? Changing jobs or careers or moving? Lost someone dear to you? I have been in your shoes. And it isn't fun when you are in the middle of it. Let me help you get through it. We'll set a goal for your short-term therapy (usually just 3 or 4 sessions and my clients show progress or tell me they are feeling better) and then find ways to get you to that goal. Ways you haven't thought about in awhile and just need to remember or a whole new way of thinking and feeling. Soon you may even ACT differently (in a good way!). I offer a free 15 minute consultation on VSee, the telemental health app that doctors and therapists are using. Go here to sign up for VSee with me: https://vsee.com/s/5ad648522ad0d See you on your couch! Get started today. Call, email or text.
Are you feeling disconnected from yourself or others? Do other people give you anxiety? Are you stuck in fight, flight or freeze patterns in your relationships? I can help you understand and heal old wounds, liberating you to be the person you want to be with yourself and your loved ones. I'm a Registered Clinical Counsellor with over a decade of multidisciplinary training to support you with deep healing and lasting positive change. I help individuals and couples heal the root causes of relational trauma, early childhood trauma, anxiety, depression, self-criticism, abandonment wounds, and relationship conflict.
As a psychotherapist, I aim to build genuine and accepting connections with every client I meet. I work from a systemic approach that is both strengths-based and collaborative, placing emphasis on each individual's capacity to be the expert of his/her own life. Along our journey together, I hope to share how living mindfully, intentionally and compassionately can lead us to evolve into our ideal selves in our day to day lives and relationships.
I specialize in Christian Counseling and I am a Certified Life Coach. I work with many different populations and have work with individuals experiencing situations such as relationship issues, anxiety, depression, grief recovery, inner healing, stress management, and conflict resolution just to name a few. I use an individualized approach. Some of my clients require an integrated approach with their faith as a part of their treatment and some do not. All clients have a treatment plan that includes evidenced based treatment to help them accomplish their desired outcome.
As living human beings, we encounter times in our lives when we need someone to help us think, reflect and look at our lives. I am passionate about helping people live life to the fullest of their abilities. I offer Counselling in English and Afrikaans and on the go while you travel through online counselling.
Some of us have an exceptionally high drive to perform - that's how we achieve professional success, grow personally, and provide for our families. Yet, as we strive to achieve and perform we can find ourselves anxious, stressed, irritable, and not enjoying life much. I help high performers get off the hamster wheel and regain their ability to enjoy life.
I skype many clients all over the world, making therapy comfortable and accessible. Therapy isn't curing somebody of something; it is a means of helping a person explore himself, his life. There is nothing too big or too small, if it matters to you it matters, lets start with an email.
Living in a country you did not grow up in can give you a wealth of new experiences, but after a while you may also feel disconnected from the people around you, feeling isolated and without a stable "home". In our work together, I draw on both my personal experiences of moving countries and having an intercultural marriage, as well as on more than 10 years of professional experience as a psychologist.
I believe therapy is a powerful tool to promote change or improvement in any area of one's life. Counselling allows self awareness by focusing on understanding feelings, thoughts and actions which will provide a base for positively change your life.
I think of myself as a compassionate and non-judgmental counselor. I look at counseling and the therapeutic relationship as a collaboration and an opportunity to facilitate a growth experience emphasizing greater self awareness on the emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
