About Roxanna Losada Radley
I received my degree in Clinical Psychology in Argentina, where I also pursued my post-graduate studies at the Private Center for Psychotherapeutic Studies. I trained at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center, a teaching hospital affiliated with Harvard Medical School in Boston. There I worked and trained with inpatients and outpatients who suffered from a wide range of psychological disorders.
When I moved to Spain, I took a position at the Massachusetts Institute of Spain, a psychiatric hospital and at Montreal Day treatment Hospital . During that time, I also had my private practice working with a multicultural population. I provided treatment for individuals, couples and families dealing with a variety of issues such as cultural adaptation, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, trauma, and other psychological disorders.
When I returned to the U.S, I completed the Externship Program at The Ackerman Institute for the Family in New York, which provides clinical treatment training for working with couples and families. After finishing the program, I moved to the greater Washington DC area, where I have been practicing in private practice as a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor.
Since 2002, I have led and organized workshops and seminars for people who moved to the area to work at one of the many major international organizations. I have addressed issues such as moving to a new country, cross-cultural marriage, raising children in a different culture, stress management and work/life balance. I also participated in The Washington School of Psychiatry Group Psychotherapy 2-year Training Program.
I worked as a Psychological Counselor at the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund for eleven years. I focused on individuals and couples from diverse cultures and backgrounds who struggled with psychological issues and the implications of living in a different culture.
Drawn from my recent training at the Washington Baltimore Center for Emotionally Focused Therapy, I employ an attachment theory approach to couples therapy, which allows each partner to reprocess the experience that led to the distress and disconnection in the relationship. My goal is to help couples to create new connections and bonding events. A relationship can become a bond of attachment and through effective therapy, couples can identify and address the underlying security and safety of the bond. When we feel love, we feel more connected and secure.
I am licensed as a Clinical Professional Counselor in Maryland and Washington, DC.
