About Kathleen Salyer


Kathleen Salyer - Professional Summary:   


A psychotherapist with more than 30 years of experience treating adults, adolescents, children, and their parents. Kathleen Salyer holds a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology from George Washington University in Washington, D.C. She is in private practice in Virginia, with offices in McLean and Sterling. In addition to her practice she gives lectures on a variety of topics related to children and families as well as on the use of behavior stratagies in the classroom. She has also presented seminars to mental health professionals on the treatment of borderline personality disorders. Kathleen Salyer, Ph.D. assists children and their families in developing more effective lifestyles, addressing everything from problems in learning, attention and social adjustment to effective discipline strategies and better family communication styles. Kathleen Salyer views teachers as powerful assets and, when appropriate, draws upon their skills with children in the classroom, to participate in a collaborative effort with the parents of children with behavioral challenges. In her work with adults, Kathleen Salyer emphasizes that relationships and experiences acquired early in life play a critical role in how, as adults we think, feel, and relate to others, ourselves and the world around us. What we learn early on we practice and internalize and it becomes an important part of who we are as adults, some of which is good and enriches our lives; however, the negative habits we bring with us, with respect to thought patterns, how we deal with our feelings and relate to others, can greatly interfere in what we want to accomplish in life. Despite the importance of early learning, Kathleen Salyer emphasizes, throughout the years other people and experiences play an important role in influencing the course of our lives. Psychotherapy can be one of these experiences, offering the individual the opportunity to step back and identify thought habits and ways of dealing with feeling and others that aren’t working well for them; it can help them break old ineffective patterns and acquire more effective ones. Kathleen Salyer, Ph.D. works with adults with various forms of anxiety, depression, adjustment disorders as well as work related and relationship issues. Theoretically, her approach is eclectic with a background in psychodynamic models, family systems and cognitive-behavioral techniques and strategies. Kathleen Salyer is a member of a number of organizations including the American Psychological Association, the Virginia Psychological Association, the Virginia Academy of Clinical Psychologists, and the Northern Virginia Academy of Clinical Psychologists, of which she is a former President.
