Hi all,

I am looking for a good therapist in the Herndon/Reston/Fairfax area. I am seeing someone now, but he's about as compassionate/empathetic as a dead tree stump. I need someone new!

I have HORRIBLE trust issues! I do not open up easily and I suffer from pretty nasty depression. I already have a psychiatrist for meds management, but I just need someone who is NICE, PATIENT and WARM to see weekly.

Do any of you know someone who could possibly help me? Male or female, doesnt matter. I just want to like to go to therapy instead of dreading it like an annual GYN exam!

Thanks guys!

If you don't mind a LCSW as opposed to a psychologist, I would recommend Alan Pachter at Northern VA Psychiatric Group which is just off Rte 50 just outside the beltway (Fairfax address).

I saw him for a little while and found him very easy to talk to, compassionate and completely non-threatening.

Good luck in your search

Do you use your insurance? If so, what kind do you have?

I don't think the person I was going to suggest takes that insurance, but I always have felt better talking with someone who is the same sex as me and a little older. Everyone is different though!
