Our primary concern continues to be the well-being of our clients and staff. On May 4, 2020, Virginia Governor Northam extended key provisions of Executive Order 53, which places restrictions on businesses and gatherings of more than 10 people through at least May 14th. At that time, we will enter Phase I of easing restrictions. While this will ease some limits on businesses, Loudoun Psychological Services will continue to offer therapy services entirely online. While we are able to complete psychological testing intakes online, complete testing must wait until we reopen. We anticipate reopening our doors during Phase II. New patients are welcome to join our practice at this time via Join Today.
Please do not come into the office if you are not feeling well or have been exposed to someone not feeling well.
Group therapy at LPS involves one or two clinician(s) who lead a group of roughly five to 15 patients. Typically, groups meet for between one and two hours each week. Some people attend individual therapy in addition to groups, while others participate in groups only.
LPS groups are designed to target a specific problem, such as depression, trauma, panic disorder, social anxiety, chronic pain, motivation or substance abuse. Other groups focus more generally on improving social skills, helping people deal with a range of issues such as anger, shyness, loneliness and low self-esteem. Groups often help those who have experienced loss, whether it be a spouse, a child or someone who died by suicide.
Groups in development include LGBT support, trauma processing, depression, and anxiety groups. We are also developing groups dealing with nutrition and finances.
