Dr. Paul Rizzo
In our work together, I’ll emphasize helping you to develop a strong sense of confidence and agency as we work towards your career, relationship, and life goals. My approach is to guide and assist you to grow, to better manage setbacks, and to flourish in your life.
I become a psychologist so that I could give priority to helping people develop a greater understanding and acceptance of their life experiences, relationships, and place in the world and how deep, lasting change comes from that.
My role is to help you to understand the factors that have shaped your current struggles and how you see yourself so that we can come up with ways to make changes for the better.Paul Rizzo, Psy.D. Therapist DC
I love that my profession is based on genuine human connection, understanding, and a focus on building and repairing relationships. My emphasis is on your growth (expected or not), challenging self-limiting beliefs, and helping you to foster lasting change.
