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.

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.
