Keeping New Year’s Resolutions New Year’s Eve has always been a time to reflect on the changes we want (or need) to make and to resolve to follow through on those changes. Every year clients of mine tell me their lofty plans for New Year’s resolutions- find a boyfriend, lose weight, get healthy, quit smoking- and inevitably, like most people weeks later when I ask about the progress of their resolutions, they confess that they have abandoned their goals. Striving for positive change is important; by following some basic steps, you can improve your chances to achieve your goals. Set reasonable [...]

During a recent interview with Dr. Michael Oberschneider, our region’s leading authority on screen time issues, I heard some practical advice I want to share. Dr. Oberschneider of Ashburn Psychological and Psychiatric Services says “How can you expect your teens to be more balanced about screen time, if they see you staring at a screen or Blackberry all day?” He [...]

How Much Screen Time is too much for our Children and Teens? Between watching television and videos, Twittering, surfing the Internet, texting and playing computer or video games, it seems that our kids are spending more of their time than ever looking at some sort of screen, which begs the question -- How much screen time is too much?  As a psychologist, of course I’ve always been witness to the extreme cases.  However, over the past few years, screen time concerns rank up there for why kids and teens are coming to therapy.  This Summer I worked with several teenager boys [...]

Thinking about Stress Life can be stressful.   While the media bombards us with talk of war, recession, and layoffs, we are busy working, raising our children, and caring for elderly parents.   The content of our minds reflects the way that we live, with thoughts rattling around all day and sometimes well into the night.  We review, plan, worry, and obsess, and can end up feeling stressed and out of control. So, what can you do to manage your level of stress?  The common wisdom is that you should change how you think:  stop worrying and replace the negative thoughts with positive [...]

Published in Leesburg Today (May 4, 2009) A Look at Sexting Sexting, the practice of sending sexually explicit photos and messages between cell phones, has quickly become all the rage for many pre-teens and teens across the Nation. The phenomenon was first reported in 2005, and since then, parents, lawmakers and school systems have been grappling with how to deal with it. And Loudoun County is not immune to this phenomenon. In March of last year, Ting-Yi Oei, a 60-year-old assistant principal at Freedom High School in South Riding, Virginia was charged with child pornography in investigating sexting within his school.

Loss of Wealth Can Disrupt Mental Health By Michael Oberschneider Special to The Washington Post Tuesday, April 28, 2009 The reasons why somebody decides to take his or her life often remain opaque, even when there's a suicide note. But recent highly publicized deaths, such as the apparent murder-suicides of one family in their Middletown home and another in a Towson hotel room, and now the apparent suicide of Freddie Mac's 41-year-old acting chief financial officer, David Kellermann, have fueled speculation about the special psychological stresses caused by financial crisis. I can't comment on those cases, but as a psychologist I [...]
