We are so happy we found Dr. Oberschneider. He is bright and VERY PERCEPTIVE. To me, being perceptive is probably the most important part of a psychologist's job (how can you fix what you don't "get"?) and it is such a rare trait. He nails it. He also genuinely cares (again unheard of). He is very present - he "gets into the ring with us" - NEVER leaving us to feel like we just spoke for an hour with little in response. We always leave with things to really think about. He has been very available to us by phone for emergency issues, and has squeezed us into his schedule when we've really needed him. Our family issues have been so varied - from marriage counseling to kids to needing actual diagnosis, and he has excelled at each of our (unfortunately numerous) challenges. He has improved our families' lives in so, so many ways. It is nice to meet with someone who has even made us laugh between our tears. I really can't express how great he is. Love him!!

Great children's book, Dr. Mike. "Ollie Outside: Screen Free Fun!" Wonderful story and message and delightful graphics. Also got a lot out of the note to parents informational section at the back of the book. Great practice too!!!

Dr. Oberschneider was selected by our judge to be our custody evaluator. The attorneys offered six names (three each), and our judge chose Dr. Oberschneider saying that he is "excellent" and that he has been in his court room many times. It was also comforting to know that both attorneys (mine and my ex's) have worked with Dr. Oberschneider on many cases like ours. I am so pleased with Dr. Oberschneider's work. He thoroughly evaluated our toxic co parenting relationship and was able to come to the correct conclusions for our children. I don't agree with everything he recommended (like my having to spend some time with my ex-husband in the presence of our children during visitation pick ups and drop offs), but it's probably all good for our kids. If you ever have to do a custody evaluator, I give Dr. Oberschneider 5 stars. His staff was also outstanding. Thank you!!!

Dr. Mike, It's been awhile but Ryan and I wanted to wish you a Happy Thanksgiving with this thankful review! We were remined that it was 2 years ago on Thanksgiving Day that you came in to help us through a crisis. So many wonderful things have happened since then for Ryan and for our family because of you. No more depression, and no more anxiety. You've helped us so much as parents as well. In addition to being an outstanding therapist, you trully do have a heart of gold, and people should know about you and your practice. Keep doing what you do, and we will return in a heartbeat if we need to, but hopefully we won't need to. Wishing you the very best holiday season.

We were at another practice for our son for over two years and made no progress. The therapist there didn't have an action plan or meet with us as parents. We just dropped our son off and picked him up an hour later and nothing much changed. We then found Ashburn Psychological Services through our son's school and switched over. The school recommends the practice highly. We made more progress at Ashburn Psychological Services in 6 weeks than we did in over two years at the other place. GREAT practice and GREAT team. We also did educational testing which wasn't cheap but it gave us a lot of the missing pieces to the puzzle that we needed to help our son to be successful at home and at school. The office manager and administrative team at the practice is also amazing. Chris the office manager is truly exceptional and it's white glove services all the way at the place. A befitting thanks to you all on Thanksgiving week!!! See you next week Dr. Mike :-)

Fabulous practice on all fronts! We received several services here including testing for our daughter who had learning problems and then medication for ADHD and anxiety and therapy sessions for our kids and family. It's nice to know doctors of this calibre are in Loudoun County.
