My Background and Approach

I’m Lara Hammock, a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) with an office in Vienna, VA. I know that there is a lot of fear around starting therapy since most people don’t feel comfortable talking about difficult and private topics. That’s why I create a safe place to work through these important issues. I have a long track record of helping adult individuals and couples improve their relationships, quiet their negative thoughts, and start making positive changes in their lives. I help them get to know who they truly are so that they can begin to feel more capable, confident, and fulfilled. If you would like to be free from debilitating anxiety or relationship issues and want to feel better and more balanced, then reach out to me using the form at the bottom of the page.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we all make sense internally. Many of our ineffective behaviors are driven by childhood adaptations, attachment wounds, or past traumas. I strive to create a non-judgmental place to heal those issues. Only when we process our emotions effectively can we give ourselves the compassion we deserve, gain better perspective, and start to shift our own behavior. Although I rely primarily on the power of the therapeutic relationship, I also work with many different techniques including EFT Tapping, Internal Family Systems, education about neurobiology, 2-chair work, and guided visualization. I am trained in two trauma processing techniques: EMDR and EFT Tapping. For couples, I have more than two years of intensive couples therapy training through the Couples Institute learning the developmental model of couples therapy. Contact me today to see if we might work well together.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
