Caroline Conley, LCSW

Adolescents and Adult Psychotherapist

(Individual and Couples)

Licensed Clinical Social Worker Falls Church

I believe that psychotherapy is an important part of the journey to self-exploration and wellness. I value authentic and genuine connection with my clients. My work aims to assist people in vulnerable times. So, I focus on strength-based psychotherapy that enlists each individual’s strengths and talents. Therefore, I believe that psychotherapy is a partnership between the individual and clinician. I tailor treatment to meet your individual needs. Therapy promotes the self-actualization process—helping one to determine who he/she is and then using that knowledge to redirect his/her life in more fulfilling ways. 

I work with clients with the following issues: Depression, Anxiety, Relationship Conflicts, Life Transitions, Work-Life Balance, Career Issues, Addictions and Eating Disorders. Some treatment modalities I use are: Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Couples Counseling, Emotionally Focused Therapy, Existential and Psychodynamic Therapy.

With more than 16 years of experience, as an Adolescents and Adult Psychotherapist, I work to partner with my clients on their individual journeys. I work to understand your individual experiences and assist with the healing process so that my clients can become the person he/she wants to be. 

Many different factors motivate one to seek therapy.

Regardless of the specific catalyst, individuals typically wind up gaining many far-reaching benefits. Many people feel that they have lost a connection with their family, friends and significant others. Moreover, many people feel that they have lost a connection with themselves. Many people are dealing with major life stressors such as work stress, interpersonal relationships, and major life transitions.
