Sean Walsh, Ph.D.
I am a licensed clinical psychologist in Virginia and Washington, D.C. I earned my Ph.D. from the University of Toledo where I was able to learn psychotherapeutic techniques from multiple types of theoretical orientations (Psychodynamic, Cognitive-Behavioral, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Humanistic Psychology). This allows me to tailor therapy to the unique needs of clients and address how they are functioning in a more global context rather than adhering to a specific way of understanding the mind. I find this to be especially important to long term change and living life in line with ones values in addition to provide more immediate relief from stress, anxiety, and depression.
I also conducted research with the Rorschach Inkblot Test and learned about a wide range of psychological assessments, including how assessments can help treatment be as effective as possible. Before obtaining my Ph.D., I earned a Master's degree in clinical psychology from Madonna University in Livonia, Michigan where I focused on learning how to use a wide range of psychodynamic interventions.
I have always been interested in the change process involved in therapy that leads to overcoming difficulties and living a more fulfilling life. While I primarily use a psychodynamic approach, I also incorporate many other types of interventions to tailor therapy to the unique needs of each person. Having a wide knowledge and training experience with different therapeutic modalities makes therapy makes me a more versatile therapist and keeps sessions interesting!!
