The Chrysalis Group
Dr. Joanne Irving, Ph.D.
I have a wonderful practice filled with intelligent, concerned clients who have taught me much over my 25 years of experience. I have learned and used a variety of approaches and worked with a wide range of issues including: anxiety, depression, addictions, relationship problems, and various kinds of life stress.
I am especially passionate about helping couples because i know that the quality of our relationships with other people is central to our entire experience of life. So many relationships that start out feeling wonderful and exciting end up in frustration and disappointment. In addition, life crises can stress a relationship to the brink. It saddens me to know that couples go through the intense pain of breaking up only to struggle in their next relationship. It doesn't need to be that way.
I help couples learn skills that give them immediate relief from their most hurtful encounters and foster deep empathy, understanding and connection. In only a few coaching sessions with your partner, you will learn how to communicate in ways that:
* Rekindle friendship and passion
* Truly resolve long standing conflict and
* Lead to individual growth and satisfaction.
I see psychotherapy as helping people access their inner resources, deepen their self awareness, develop strategies for overcoming obstacles and break old habits, and learning coping skills to face the inevitable stresses of life. I am an empathetic, active listener who approaches my clients' concerns with deep respect, honesty, pragmatism, caring and sometimes, with humor. I am results oriented and ensure that my clients can transfer what they experience and learn in my sessions to their real life.
I am humbled and honored by the trust my clients have shown me over the years as me I have accompanied them on their journey back to safety and and enriched personal relationships and to more fulfillment and satisfaction with life
My clients describe me as an empathetic, active listener who approaches their concerns with caring, honesty, respect, pragmatism and sometimes humor. I would be happy to discuss my expertise and approach by phone. Please call me at 301-983-5788.
