Loudoun County Public Schools closed March 20 to prepare for coronavirus closures

It was announced this morning that Loudoun County Public Schools will be closed from March 12 until March 20 in response to the rapidly unfolding coronavirus pandemic. While there are no reported presumptive cases within the school system, the school system is taking the precautionary and planning measure of closing schools at this time. To read more about the school's decision, please click on the link here.

Also, please know that we at Ashburn Psychological and Psychiatric Services realize that this news may be impactful -- both logistically (e.g., working from home, getting a child or teen to an appointment, etc.) and emotionally, and we are here to support you as needed. If you would like to or need to reschedule an appointment, please call us and we will most certainly accommodate your needs. Several of our psychiatrists, psychologists and therapists are offering on-line and telephone meeting options during this time to support continuity of care; that is also an option at our practice. The coronavirus has quickly become an upsetting reality that is now more immediate for our community. We urge you to take care of your loved ones and yourself, per the CDC guidelines, until the virus's end.

Maggie Avedisian Ph.D.

Dr. Maggie Avedisian has received training and credentialing in Alpha-Stim, an FDA cleared treatment for anxiety, insomnia and depression. Cranial Electrical Stimulation (CES) is a very mild electrical stimulation which safely and effectively changes cell activity in the brain. In about 20 minutes, the Alpha-Stim increases alpha waves, which can produce a very calming and relaxed feeling...reducing anxiety. The initial response can last from 6-48 hours depending on the person and is effective for about 80-90% of individuals. Repeated use will provide longer lasting, cumulative and more sustainable results. Over 100 research studies with proven and safe results!

To learn more about Alpha-Stim at APPS, or to schedule a consultation with Dr. Avedisian, we invite you to call us at: (703) 723-2999.

Ollie Outside: Screen-Free Fun | Michael Oberschneider, Psy.D., Guy Wolek | 9781631980688, 9781631981050 | Books

In our technology driven times, managing screen/technology time has become an additional – and sometimes not so easy -- parenting task. The research has shown that technology overuse can lead to a host of problems including: social problems, behavioral problems, emotional problems, learning problems, ADHD and obesity. Thus, early parental efforts for balanced screen time use for our children is extremely important.

With the holidays upon us, we invite you to consider Dr. Oberschneider's children's book, "Ollie Outside: Screen Free Fun" as a gift. Children enjoy the sweet story where Ollie and his family go through a challenging time with technology over use to finally learn that turning off technology, getting outside and spending time together is a much better way to be. Great message and great holiday gift for children ages 4 years to 8 years!
