Q: Why do you do what you do? What motivates and inspires you?
A: We established Integrated Psychology Associates of McLean (IPA) as a community resource for youth and families in McLean and surrounding areas. By bringing together clinicians with varied training backgrounds, ethnicities and cultures, we aim to support clients of all ages and backgrounds. We strive to foster a safe and understanding environment, a place our clients can call their therapeutic “home base.” Ultimately, we hope to guide our youth safely into adulthood and to positively influence this community, if not our world, one child, one family, at a time.
Q: What has been an unexpected surprise in your work?
A: Covid! The pandemic and the abrupt discontinuation of social activities integral to child development reshaped our concept of what it means to create and maintain lasting relationships with the families we serve. During quarantine and physical distancing, we had to find creative and inventive ways of maintaining rapport and helping families cope. We were honored to be virtually invited into their homes each week and used everything available to us on camera to preserve that human connection. For some patients, these virtual sessions were the one constant in their lives as the world shut down. And, in some cases, it was a lifeline.
Q: Why choose IPA?
A: Our practice employs a patient-oriented approach. Many factors contribute to mental health needs, and we seek to learn everything we can about our clients and their lives to create unique evidence-based treatment plans to target their specific individual experiences.
