Family & Child Therapy Vienna VA

Individual Therapy for Adults

Using a trauma-informed lens, our therapists use this collaborative approach to enable clients to delve into their thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and patterns in a safe and confidential space. We tailor treatment to meet the client’s needs based on age, and developmental stage. It is our goal to provide a safe, empathic, and welcoming space.

We offer the following treatment approaches:

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), a psychotherapy approach that has been effective in the treatment of trauma, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, OCD, substance use, and other mental health concerns. It was developed in the late 1980s by psychologist Dr. Francine Shapiro. EMDR incorporates elements of cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), experiential therapy, and bilateral stimulation or “back and forth” movement of the eyes or buzzing of hand-held tappers (as examples).

  • Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), a type of therapy used to connect thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; this modality is adapted by our clinicians to ensure it is utilized to be affirming to all clients.

  • Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), a type of therapy used to assist with regulating intense emotions and finding alternate and effective ways to cope.

  • Mindfulness/Mind-Body Work, to include tools that our therapists teach by focusing on awareness of the present moment, while acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations. We use mind-body work to connect body sensations with emotions.

  • Relaxation Training, a tool that our therapists teach (including progressive muscle relaxation or deep breathing) for the management of stress, anxiety, and anger.

  • Stress Management, which involves tools or strategies to handle life’s stressors.

  • Support for New Parents
