Vote GTA as Best of Suburbia 2014

What makes a therapist the ‘best’… you decide.

We’re all familiar with the popular “best of…” magazine editions.

The best make-up… The best colleges… The best restaurants… The best mental health counseling…

Wait, really best therapist?

How do you decide who’s best when it comes to something so personal?

I’ve come to realize that the point of these surveys, besides selling magazines, isn’t really to crown a #1 therapist but to let you, the public, voice your opinion about what qualities matter most when choosing a provider.  With that in mind I want to share a new video with you.  It’s something that I don’t talk about very often but that is always on my mind.

At GTA we have a strong commitment to our vision of therapy.  If the video above fits with your idea of what it takes to be the “best” in mental health care, then vote today and let’s share our message that the best therapy is the one that takes a personalized and compassionate approach!

What do you do for “me time?” {Tuesday Topics}

07.08.14I have a confession….I have a never ending to do list. I’ve always been what my parents would call a “busy body”. Really, it’s not a bad thing because prioritizing has become my best friend. However, my to do list only becomes a problem when I let it define me. I find that I have to check myself when I feel on top of the world one day and then down the next all because I have or have not completed all that I’ve wanted to accomplish. Recently, I’ve discovered the joy of chucking my to do list for a few hours during my “me time”. This past summer, I’ve rediscovered one of my favorite activities, Zumba!

I welcome the opportunity to let my hair down, exercise, and just have fun. But I’ve found the best joy comes from stepping away and forgetting about the next thing on my agenda for an hour or so. What about you? Have you taken some “me time” this summer? Do you make the time to step away from your to do list?

DC Outdoor Movies

A new Friday tradition starts now-

By far one of my favorite things about summer is outdoor movies! They are everything I love about the summer time- warm evenings, fresh grass, popcorn, and classic films.  And they’re the perfect evening activity for everyone from single friends, to snuggly lovebirds, to happy kids and parents.


In fact I love them so much that they’ve inspired a new Friday tradition on our Facebook page-

Friday Films with GTA!

Starting tomorrow, every Friday we will post a short video for you to kick off the weekend.  Sometimes funny, sometimes informative, but always on film!


Subscribe to our YouTube channel and later tonight you can catch a sneak peak at this week’s video from your truly on what else… date night!!

Have you given up on your dreams? {Tuesday Topics}

07.01.14.TuesdayTopicsWe all have dreams and ambitions; places we desire to travel to, career moves we’ve always wanted to make, personal aspirations that we long to one day realize. It’s so tempting to look at where we are in life and think that our daily routine will always be the same and that we will never reach our goals. Well, today, I dare you to challenge those thoughts and dare to dream again. In fact, I even challenge you to dream bigger. I believe that we have all been placed on this earth for a reason, and those dreams inside of us are not there on accident. Sure, life happens, but refuse to linger in mediocrity. Your dreams are there to propel you to a whole new level. So, what dreams have you left on the back burner? What dreams have you left behind?
