Integrity & Partnership
Columbia Associates in Psychiatry is the largest and oldest child and family psychiatric practice in the Washington Metropolitan Area. Our group of psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and dieticians at locations in Virginia and Maryland have exceptional experience working with children, adolescents, adults, and families with a range of disorders.
The clinicians at Columbia Associates partner with you, our patients, through the course of evaluation and treatment. This allows us to understand your needs, describe the most effective treatment options, and support you in your efforts toward improving your health. Our primary relationship is with you, not with insurance companies, but we understand financial and insurance considerations that impact your decisions.
Our focus is on helping patients maximize their
strengths to lessen the impact of stress in their lives.
At Columbia Associates, We Emphasize Results.
Finding Solutions Together
Treatment begins with an initial evaluation. Recommendations may include individual, group, play therapy, or art therapy, with family involvement to educate and improve relationships. Medication evaluation and management may be considered, as well as coordination with primary care physicians, schools, and other referring clinicians. Treatment may include both medication and psychotherapy, along with exercise and relaxation techniques.
