Inova Pride Clinic offers behavioral health services to patients both within the Pride Clinic and not established within the Pride Clinic. Therapy can help individuals who have been diagnosed with a mental health disorder as well as people who are working through a life event or situation. Please contact the clinic at 703-522-1175 for more information about our services.
Therapy within the Inova Pride Clinic is time limited although length of treatment may vary according to individual needs. Sessions are between 25-45 minutes. The first appointment is the initial evaluation where it will be determined with clinician and patient best treatment options. Subsequent appointments include treatment planning and process. Practice modalities may include but are not limited to: cognitive behavioral therapy; dialectical behavioral therapy; motivational interviewing; narrative therapy; and solutions-focused therapy.
We currently offer individual and family therapy, with an option in the future for group therapy.
Because we are a time-limited program, we do not offer:
- Couples Therapy
- Medication Management
- ERP (Exposure and Response Prevention Therapy) for OCD
- School Refusal/Avoidance/Anxiety Specific Treatment
- Substance Use, Addiction, or Eating Disorder Treatment
Inova Pride Clinic behavioral health clinicians are either licensed behavioral health therapists or working under the guidance of a licensed behavioral health therapist.
We offer the option of in person office visits and/or telemedicine visits for patients located physically in the state of Virginia. However, for pediatric patients (under the age of 18), the initial evaluation is held in office with guardian/caregiver.
