Adam Prestegord is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Alexandria, VA who specializes in LGBTQIA+ concerns, gender and sexuality, and insight-building. His practice is open to individuals ages 16+ and up, and he welcomes individuals from the LGBTQIA+ community.
Adam enjoys working with clients who express self-curiosity, and enjoys engaging with individuals who are interested in how their past relationships are impacting them now, how their past beliefs are influencing them now. He mixes this introspective approach with tangible skills from therapy types like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT).
When working with clients from the LGBTQIA+ community, Adam uses a client-centered approach, to fully understand where his clients are at and what their concerns are. That might be coming out to family, accepting themselves, or navigating a gender transition. Adam enjoys working with these clients to help them achieve their goals and create lasting change in their lives.
