Sometimes trauma and adversity block your ability to express and enjoy the fullness of your self. This can manifest as anything from feeling stuck and unfulfilled to more serious emotional or behavioral symptoms. Working with a psychotherapist allows you to resolve disturbing experiences and become present and open to your life. Most people have a part of themselves that functions as a capable adult, and other parts that hold them back. Therapy helps to shift your sense of self so that you can access your strengths, and heal the parts of yourself that are causing distress.

Our Psychotherapeutic Methods
At Silver Spring Psychotherapy Associates, we help clients get to the root of their issues by attending deeply to their inner processes. Depending on client needs, we use Ego State Therapy, EMDR, family-of-origin work, present-focused attachment theory, knowledge of neurobiology, or differentiation therapy.
Using advanced mind-body techniques allows for full and deep resolution of problems. Our process relies on building clients’ awareness of their own inner resources and truths. It makes transformative healing possible.
We are located in Silver Spring, Maryland and provide therapy services for individuals and couples from throughout the Washington DC area. Call to speak with a therapist to see if we are the right fit for you, or contact us directly to schedule an appointment.
