 Welcome to Rankin Behavioral Health, a clinical psychology practice in Northern Virginia.  We provide individual psychotherapy, an adult DBT Program (Group and Individual DBT), parenting work, and individual child IQ testing.  We serve adults, teenagers, children, and families.

Our office is based in Falls Church, Virginia inside the Washington DC Capital Beltway.  Neighboring areas are Arlington County, Fairfax, and McLean.  

What difficulties do we usually treat?

  • Anxiety

  • Depression

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorders

  • Traumatic Stress

  • Relationship Issues

  • Addictions and Habits

  • Impulsive and Harmful Behaviors

  • Life or emotional difficulties related to ADHD, learning disabilities, or mild autism.

What methods do we use for therapy?

Having a warm, trusting therapy relationship is a vital component of therapy.   Treatment starts with proper assessment of difficulties to find the right solutions. Measurement of symptoms throughout therapy assesses progress. We use evidence-based Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) tailored to the particular blocks in your life.

What type of testing do we do? 

We do one component of psychological assessment: IQ testing for children.  IQ testing is often required for independent school admission and Advanced Academic Programs in area public school.
