At Mind Body Health, our clinical therapists understand that everyone is coming in with their own personal concerns about their health and well-being. Our Arlington, VA and Washington, DC practices have psychologists and dietitians available, allowing us to tailor our evidence-based treatment to the individual.
The advantage of our practice is our interdisciplinary model where our psychologists work closely with our dietitians. We realize at Mind Body Health, that your physical well-being can really impact your mental health and vice versa. For example, working on depression may help you feel healthier physically and working on having a balanced diet may improve your depression. At Mind Body Health, we understand that addressing health requires taking a holistic approach looking at nutrition, physical activity, stress, sleep, and emotional distress.
Our approaches are based in mindfulness in helping our clients become more aware of their thoughts, feelings, emotions, and physical sensations occurring moment to moment. Our goal in using any therapuetic approach is to help you become more intentional about the way in which you’re responding to these internal experiences. Our therapuetic approaches include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Exposure Therapy, Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy (ERP), Mindful & Intuitive Eating, and Medical Nutrition Therapy. By treating our clients as individuals and recognizing the specific needs and desires of different people, we provide a truly unique treatment plan every time.
We specialize in treating couples, adolescents and adults. We have psychologists and dietitians that are experienced in working with the special needs and concerns of men and women of various ethnic backgrounds and sexual orientations.
