Howard Jay Cohen, Psychiatrist  in Alexandria
“In my experience, I have found it extremely important to listen to a patient's complaints and gather as much information as I can to understand their symptoms, the stressors they are experiencing and their relationships at work and at home. All of this information must be taken into account during the diagnostic evaluation along with a detailed medical and psychiatric history. After a diagnosis is made, I explain what the treatment will be. I will provide information about whatever medication is prescribed and I will discuss medication options. I will also review and discuss any possible drug interactions.

Scott Twentyman, Psychiatrist  in Falls Church
“Are you tired of a life unlived? Therapy is a vessel for transformation, to help you connect with the deepest parts of yourself. Depression, anxiety, relationship problems, repeating dysfunctional patterns, self-defeating behavior, creative stagnation--are symptoms you have become disconnected from the deeper parts of yourself. As a result, your life has become unbalanced. As painful as they are, as much as you wish they would just go away, your symptoms are trying to tell you something. If listened to carefully, they direct us to what you have neglected, forgotten, or lost.

Timothy A Sanderson, Psychiatrist  in Norfolk
“Having trained as a psychiatrist, an art therapist, and a Jungian analyst, I approach each individual as unique. I focus on the value of that uniqueness and encourage the development of individual solutions to the problems and suffering that individuals bring into treatment. I view anxiety, depression, low self-esteem and problems in relationships as manifestations of unsuccessful attempts to adapt to both the outer world of collective demands and the inner world of one's own individual feelings and needs. Being healthy in the world means balancing the needs for individuality with needs to fit into the collective world.

Tejpal Singh, Psychiatrist  in Falls Church
“It is often easy to give most of our attention to physical illnesses and ignore the emotional and mental health disorders. In many cases mental illness can be more dangerous than physical ailment and could worsen the prognosis. The increasing scientific data shows a strong connection between mental health and medical illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension and strokes.
