Psychologists in Alexandria, VA—Meet with a Thriveworks Psychologist

Consider this hypothetical: After a grueling job search, you’re finally at a company that you feel you can succeed and grow with. You’re coming up on your one-year, and you’re sure that a promotion is in your near future. But when you have your annual review with your boss, you receive bad news instead: they have to let you go. Your boss praises you for your hard work and boasts of your talent. Unfortunately, the current state of the economy has forced them to let hundreds of employees go and you’re one of them. But this doesn’t register. You instead focus on the fact that you were just let go from your job. That your future is uncertain. That you’re now unemployed.

This is, of course, an extremely frustrating, disappointing, and stressful situation. But there are a few ways we can respond to it. In the example above, you enter a negative downward spiral. Your another option is to put a positive spin on the situation and look at it as a new opportunity for your career. Your boss had nothing but positive things to say about you—they acknowledged your talent and hard work, can you? You can utilize this talent and work ethic at another job, one that is an even better fit for you.

“We cannot choose our external circumstances, but we can always choose how we respond to them.” –Epictetus

As we just touched on, psychologists (and other mental health professionals) have unique skills, training, and experience, of which enables them to help us through the difficult seasons of life.

patient parent

Lolita is a very thoughtful therapist. She also has a good understanding of children as she worked with my son at the ages of 15 & 16.

We may continue to seek our her assistance in the future should our needs change. Thank you for all of your help.

Can’t thank you enough

★★★★★
I was skeptical at first to open up to a complete stranger and express my problems and thoughts but Gelila made me feel completely comfortable within the first couple of sessions. She is very kind, a good listener, and extremely helpful. I have been talking to her for a couple of months and I feel instantly relieved of stress after our sessions. I can’t thank her enough for helping me out through tough times.

Rebecca Fry is amazing

★★★★★
Rebecca has been my therapist for almost a decade and I can not recommend her enough. She is thoughtful and caring, while also great at challenging and giving direct recommendations on how to deal with issues. She even stayed with me after I moved out of the area and worked to figure out a remote option. She has worked with me through many issues and remained a valuable resource I can rely on.

Rebecca is incredible!

★★★★★
I can't speak highly enough of Rebecca Fry - she is compassionate, patient, attentive, and encouraging. She is celebratory of growth and honest in her feedback without ever being critical or judgmental. For someone who was fearful of entering therapy, she embraced me with warmth and understanding. She has helped me tremendously by equipping me with practical coping mechanisms that are manageable and realistic but challenge unhealthy habits when necessary. On top of her professionalism - Rebecca is so easy to relate to and never makes me feel like I have anything to be ashamed of. She cares deeply for her patients and wants to help them lead healthier lives. She is an absolute treasure and I can't recommend her highly enough!!
