Virtual Appointments With Psychiatrists in Short Pump, VA

Paulina has always struggled with anxiety. It started when she was a teenager, and it has followed her throughout her adult life. She’s been able to manage it well in the past with exercise, meditation, and other stress-relieving techniques.

But recently, things have changed. Her mother was diagnosed with cancer and Paulina just can’t stop worrying about her. She can’t sleep, hardly spends any time with friends and family, and her work performance is starting to suffer. She feels overwhelmed and doesn’t know where to turn.

Paulina’s father sees that she’s struggling and suggests that she might want to speak with a mental health professional. She agrees and schedules a session with a psychiatrist. Paulina’s psychiatrist diagnoses her with an anxiety disorder and prescribes anxiety medication. After a few therapy sessions, she’s starting to get on a better path.

Modern life can be difficult. Have you ever felt like Paulina –– struggling and wanting to reach out for help? We want you to know that support is available. Working with a psychiatrist can help you conquer your struggles and find a path forward.

Can a Psychiatrist Help Me?

Psychiatrists are experts with medical school training in the treatment, management, and prevention of mental illness. They can help people suffering from a wide variety of mental and emotional disorders, including:

  • Major depressive disorder
  • Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
  • Eating disorders
  • Anxiety and panic disorders
  • Phobias
  • Addiction and substance abuse disorders
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Some people think that psychiatrists only work with people suffering from severe mental illness but this is not true. Working with a psychiatrist can help anyone suffering from any level of mental distress or mental illness. Psychiatrists are trained, compassionate professionals who devote their lives to helping people improve their mental health.

Psychiatric Treatment Options Available

Psychiatric treatment looks different for everyone, depending on a person’s specific presentation of symptoms. Psychiatrists are qualified to recommend treatment plans that are unique to each client’s specific situation.

Treatment plans often include psychotherapy, psychiatric medication, or a combination of the two.

Psychotherapy refers to many types of talk-based therapy often used to help clients address their emotions and manage their symptoms. The specifics of your treatment will be unique to your situation, and every therapy session may look different. You might discuss a symptom and how to manage it, the history of your struggles, or environmental stressors that may be contributing to your issue.

As medical doctors, psychiatrists can also prescribe medications. While medication isn’t a part of everyone’s psychiatric treatment plan, it can help reduce symptoms for some people. If medication is right for you, your psychiatrist will work with you to make sure you understand the benefits and side effects of your prescription.

The most important thing to understand about mental health treatment is that you’re in control. Therapy sessions are often driven by what you want to discuss. Think of mental health treatment like a partnership — you’ll be working together with your provider to find relief and overcome your struggles.

Truly cares

I've worked with Domonique and I've seen the care and concern she provides her clients. She is invested in their wellbeing and offers clinically sound services. She is supportive, down to earth, but is also willing to tackle the tough issues, and by doing so, increases clients' growth and sets clients up for long-term success. She supported me in handling various major life changing situations.

Mary helped me see the light again!

I was drinking just to cope with my depression 9 months ago. I thought it was the drinking that caused me to be depressed and miserable. I was so in denial I didn’t see how depressed and sad I really was. I had no hope. Mary put everything in perspective for me and helped challenge me to change. She gave me a little tough love and guidance that I needed. With the help of Mary’s help, coping skills, -and medication, I feel like a new woman! Thanks Mary for all your help! You rock! ❤️

Review of Roberta Morell

I have used Roberta as a consultant for three years. Her consultations about therapeutic and ethical situations have been both professional and wise. I am a hospital chaplain at a busy hospital and for our most challenging cases, I turn to Roberta. She is responsive and empathetic. I highly recommend Roberta as both a therapist and consultant.

Rebekah Lowenstein

Mrs. Lowenstein is one of my favorite people and one of the best supervisors I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Her commitment to my success as an MSW is nothing short of miraculous. She has advocated for me to get supervision from the Board of Social Work and has been next to me every step of my journey. Rebekah continues to go above and beyond for me and I have not doubt that she will do this for her clients as well. She is patient, funny, personable, competent, and one of the smartest women I know.
