My Approach to Helping
My name is Marianne Redmond Lopez. I am a regular, down-to-earth gal with a pretty good sense of humor. I am a solution-focused psychotherapist (LCSW) licensed in VA (working on other state licenses), whose goal is to help people uncover their true potential and move forward with confidence toward all of their goals. I specialize in working with individuals, couples and groups focusing on the treatment of narcissistic abuse, anxiety, depression, PTSD (trauma), griefloss, borderline personality struggles, marriage or interpersonal relationship problems, addictions (anyall) struggles, daily life pressureproblems, peer pressure, bullying, mood disorders, domestic violence, low self-esteem or anyone in need of new ways to cope with life’s everyday challenges. I am trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Solution-Focused Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). I also have a certification in tele-therapy. I am completing certifications to be Personality Disorder Specialist and Trauma Therapist. I attended VCU for my Masters, began working on the front lines as a psychotherapist at a triage style mental health clinichospital and social services in SWVA and the streets of DC and NOVA. Forward I have been given the opportunities of working in many different roles, providing me extensive experience working with diverse populations dealing with a myriad of issues.
