Dr. Lindsey Berjansky

Licensed Clinical Psychologist  Ashburn, VA

I have a passion for the mind body connection and taking a psychophysiological approach to treatment. My expertise is in weaving in a combination of highly effective mind-body integrative approaches with insight-oriented, EMDR, and cognitive-behavioral therapies. I apply a whole person perspective that promotes healing for both the mind and body as well as increased peak performance. I work with pre-teens, adolescents and adults and am PSYPACT certified allowing me to provide telehealth therapy for clients in 39 states. 

My Philosophy and Experience

Being part of your personal journey is such a privilege. There is nothing more satisfying than watching clients reclaim their lives and truly transform. Both mental health therapy and peak performance psychology is about empowerment and accessing your inner potential. It’s about realizing your strengths and applying those inner resources to overcome what has been holding you back. It’s about challenging self-limiting beliefs and gaining insight into the obstacles that are getting in your way, learning how to remove them and applying that insight to make the changes necessary to achieve your goals. I work differently with every client offering a tailored approach to your unique needs and goals. I don’t do “one size fits all” or overly generalized approaches. My goal is not to merely band-aid a symptom or maintain the status quo because we can accomplish so much more than that. Our focus will be on resolving your concerns at the core so that you can truly THRIVE with a sense of freedom and inner power.

I have over 20 years of experience working with adults, adolescents and pre-teens treating a wide variety of mental health concerns such as anxiety, depression, trauma and more. I've worked in a variety of settings including nonprofit, college counseling centers, Children’s National Medical Center, private practices, and the United States Federal Government. I have significant experience working with specialized populations serving national security missions such as military, as well as first responders and medical professionals working in high stress environments. I find that having an in-depth understanding of these populations' unique challenges builds immediate trust. In addition, I'm a trauma informed psychologist with extensive experience in treating trauma and adverse life experiences, PTSD, combat trauma, stress and trauma related medical conditions, and anxiety disorders. I also specialize in Peak Performance psychological services to help clients push past what they thought were limitations and harness the mind to reach optimal performance. 

What’s it like to work with me?

I would describe my style as an insight-oriented approach that is warm, genuine and laid back while weaving in mind-body integrative therapies and cognitive-behavioral therapy. I have expertise in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and use this psychotherapeutic approach frequently when assessed as a good fit for achieving treatment goals. I bring elements of authenticity, keeping it real, and a good sense of humor, which creates a compassionate and accepting atmosphere that immediately puts clients at ease. Sessions with me are casual, thought provoking and feel conversational in nature. I work best with clients who are insightful, motivated to make a change, and want to work hard to achieve their goals. I offer individual therapy sessions and peak performance psychological services for pre-teens, adolescents and adults.
