About Dr. Eddins
I am a licensed clinical psychologist in private practice and I also have served on the clinical staff of The Women’s Center in Vienna, Virginia. I received a bachelor’s degree in education from the University of Kentucky, a master’s degree in counseling from Johns Hopkins University and hold a Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Walden University in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
While I view a person’s emotional, physical and spiritual parts as important, I respect the background and views of each individual person. Having lived in Europe and traveled extensively in a variety of countries and having worked with people from many different cultural backgrounds, I have an appreciation for and understanding of the importance that culture plays in understanding thought and behavior.
I also bring a wide range of experience and skills to my work as a therapist. My counseling-related work includes 19 years working at The Women’s Center in Vienna, Virginia providing clinical services for adults, families, adolescents, children, low-income, and ethnic minorities. I have provided individual, group, family and couples therapy for personal and relationship issues as well as a broad range of mental health diagnoses including personality, mood, adjustment, and eating disorders; substance abuse; sexual abuse; sexual assault; domestic violence; post-traumatic stress disorder; and crisis intervention.
In addition, I have also provided psychoeducational parenting classes, life skills classes, and individual therapy for Homestretch, a community organization providing transitional housing and services for homeless families with children in Northern Virginia.
