Earta Norwood, Ph.D.

 

My style is warm, non-judgmental, and flexible. My approach is informed by my cultural background and the people I crossed paths with while living in three countries and across two continents. It is also informed by my research and my constant study of the latest developments and findings on diagnosing and treating behavioral, cognitive, and emotional distress. The goal of our work will be to create a path forward and help you grow, learn, change, find meaning. Our dialogue will help you identify the challenges you are facing, the resources you have, and the capabilities you need to develop. We will lay out a treatment plan and work at a pace that is comfortable for you.

My most recent work has been with the Clinical Psychology program at the University of Maryland at College Park where I completed an internship at the University of Virginia. My research focused on behavioral, cognitive, and emotional symptoms of anxiety, trauma, and co-occurring disorders. During my graduate training, I worked with clients diverse in age, gender, ethnicity, religion, gender identity, and socioeconomic status. I worked with students, military personnel, veterans, and individuals from the LGBT community. My approach to therapy was enriched by a range of solution-focused behavioral and cognitive approaches. During my internship, I focused on developing an integrated style that centers on tailoring treatments to fit clients’ needs.

I am intimately familiar with the military life common to the D.C. area.  For the four years between my master’s degree and doctorate I dedicated my full attention to my family as my husband trained and deployed with the United States Army.  I will never forget the first pre-deployment company party. The soldiers were so young. Only a few months prior I had taught a university class full of young people learning and hoping for bright careers in psychology and medicine; the young people at this party, however, were preparing to go to war. Their greatest hope was to survive the following year. Being close to military posts allowed me to do clinical and research work focused on the mental health of the military personnel. I volunteered as a therapist with the Chaplains at Fort Benning and Fort Huachuca. During our time at Fort Campbell, I worked with researchers at Vanderbilt University on projects focusing on the Post Deployment Health Reassessment program with the Army and the PTSD treatment programs at the Nashville Veterans' Administration. My therapy work during the years on military posts shaped the direction of my career in clinical psychology. My experiences equipped me with a deeper understanding of the importance of therapy in helping you grow, learn, change, and find meaning.

Arlington, VA

Aaron Dodini, PhD, LMFT

 

In the years leading up to my choice of profession, I went to my roots and connected to my great great grandfather’s legacy of abundance. He lived in a small pastoral village near the Italian-Swiss border on Lago Maggiore. He would lead his livestock up the rugged and imposing Alps until they reached the plateau and the lush green meadows that grew from the crystalline waters of the snowmelt. The meadows were a refuge in which they could feed and grow protected from the harsh elements. My great great grandfather passed on a legacy of learning to thrive in life, in relationships, and in professional endeavors not despite the hardships of life’s mountains, but because of them. The mountains offered both formidable challenges and life-sustaining opportunities for him. Such is life!

 

Sometimes our “mountain” is depression or anxiety or a difficult relationship or the exasperating experience of making chronic poor choices. My experiences living in the Alps led me to the realization that I wanted to walk with others in their climbs of life and get to a refuge or place of growth.

 

I believe we can find our greatest strengths when making these climbs. Through the process of taking courageous risks toward vulnerability and intimacy and with the association and help of others we can come to a much better place. I love and honor the climbs of life and I’ve found great fulfillment in making that journey with others. It’s an honor for me and my associates to work with you. We hope you’ll give us a call.

Kellie Zundel, MSW

 

As a resident psychotherapist, I receive supervisory training towards my clinical licensure. I currently work part-time as a therapist at a private practice called Heartswell, and I also work full-time as a primary therapist at an eating disorder recovery treatment center called Center for Discovery. I work with a variety of concerns namely: body image/eating disorders, depression, anxiety, adjustment disorders, grief/loss, addiction, and relationship concerns. I practice with skills from Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Mindfulness and Emotionally Focused Therapy.  

My goal as a therapist is to empower clients to recognize and own their unique stories and life experiences.  I encourage clients to practice vulnerability and shame resilience to help them foster a deep sense of their own worthiness and emotional intelligence. I work mindfully with clients to help them to connect to and understand the human needs and core beliefs that have shaped them. By fostering these skills, my clients develop coping skills they need to have more fulfillment and satisfaction in their relationships with others and themselves. They also increase their capacity to handle the unpredictability of life. 

Kellie Zundel is a graduate of Brigham Young University and received her Master’s of Social Work at George Mason University.  She is currently working under supervision for her clinical social work license.

I received my Bachelor of Arts degree at Brigham Young University.  Years later I decided to go for my masters and because of my decision to work extensively with adolescents, I decided to complete a dual licensure Master of Counseling program at the University of New Mexico in order to be licensed to work in schools and privately.  I gained extensive experience counseling families, children, and adolescents with the Southwest Family Guidance Center in Albuquerque New Mexico.  Five years ago I moved to Burke Virginia with my family and in addition to working at Instep, a private counseling agency, I worked as a school counselor at the Burke School, a public day school for middle school students receiving special education services primarily due to emotional and/or behavioral needs. In 2014 Fairfax County Public Schools awarded me the “Most Outstanding New Counselor Award.” 

Recently I decided to expand my working experience to high school and now work at Lake Braddock Secondary School, an advanced academics school in the Fairfax area.  I also own a counseling business with my colleague, Danielle Causley, who is a licensed social worker. My clinical skill is running adolescent groups and creating processing activities to help adolescents gain intrapersonal and interpersonal awareness and lifelong social skills. When I am not running around with my husband and four children, you can find me researching and planning my next travel adventure or curled up reading a good book!
