About Arlyne F Sher, Phd Llc

We are licensed, full service psychologists and counsellors in the Gaithersburg area with years of experience in several different schools of Psychology. Ever since I was a child I have been fascinated with the brain. The intricacies and nuances of neural pathways and synapses, and how they network to trigger physiological responses are astounding. The mind and body are truly in sync and affect human interaction in very subtle, unconscious ways. The power of the mind to influence our motivations and emotions is staggering. The adage mind over matter comes to mind, albeit many naysayers dismiss psychology and therapy as a pseudoscience. Evidently, nothing could be further from the truth- and mind has been shown to trigger psychosomatic reactivity. If you are afflicted by a mental disorder or seek counseling to decide what steps to take to better your life then you've come to the right place.

In addition, we provide several different psychological services in Gaithersburg, including treating chronic depression and anxiety, bi-polar disorder, PTSD, OCD, ADHD, SAD, GAD, hypochondria, eye movement reprocessing, fetishes, binge eating, anorexia, bulimia, sexual repression, and various phobias. I also offer numerous counseling services for my Gaithersburg clients, including nutritional, family, child, adolescent, individual, group, divorce, couples, stress, anger, sexual abuse, women's, and career counseling and therapy. Moreover, we provide aptitude testing and diagnostic evaluations to identify learning disabilities such as dyslexia, ADD, and dyscalculia.

Please contact Arlyne F Sher, Phd Llc today to learn more about the psychological and counseling services we provide in Gaithersburg or to obtain a free estimate. The brain is a highly malleable organ that can eliminate maladaptive behavioral or thinking patterns with ongoing cognitive behavioral therapy, Pavlovian conditioning or by uncovering and confronting unconscious neuroses. There is always hope. Always.
