Background

Dr. Maureen Lyon (Clinical Health Psychologist)

I use variety of techniques, interventions, and processes that build on your strengths, so that you can develop the skills necessary to live the life you envision.

I have earned the highest level of credentialing possible for a psychologist from the American Board of Professional Psychology as a Health Psychologist. I am highly skilled in treating individuals with medical illnesses, such as eating disorders and fibromyalgia. I am a Board Member of the Washington Area Society for the Study of Eating Disorders and Obesity, a member of the Multiple Sclerosis Society, as well as other professional organizations.

I graduated from the American University (AU) in Clinical Psychology in 1990. My training at AU integrated the use of both cognitive-behavioral and interpersonal psychotherapy techniques.

My work as a certified yoga teacher provides an additional perspective on integrating the mind and body for healing. I also have a Masters degree in History. I am a former junior high school teacher of English, History and Science and continue to enjoy providing educational and psychological assessments.
