A Few Words from our Leesburg Clinical Director


Relaxing and inviting office space at the Wellness Connection, LeesburgOn November 9,


On November 9, 2016 we celebrated The Wellness Connection, Leesburg office Open House and Ribbon Cutting Ceremony.  It was a well-attended, great event. People from all walks of life joined us in this moment of celebration.

As I reflect back on this event I can’t help but feel amazed and blessed to have been part of this new phase for The Wellness Connection.  At the beginning of 2016, I  started to explore where my career path would take me in the next few years.  I wasn’t looking to make a change, but I was curious to find what I wanted my path to look like. A conversation with someone about the TWC expansion to Leesburg peaked my interest in joining the team. The more I learned about TWC, the more it felt like the perfect fit. In June, I joined the team with the goal of leading the Leesburg office as Associate Clinical Director.

At this time, we have five mental health therapists, acupuncture, speech therapy and will soon add, medication management services, occupational therapy and massage therapy.  Our team is able to work with mood/depression, anxiety, trauma, couple/family issues, grief, parenting, post-traumatic stress disorder, men/women issues and others.  Our providers use different approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, DBT Skills, Mindfulness, and others.

If there is anything we can help you work through in this new year, we are happy to! Please give us a call at 571-210-4817.

Take care,
