When Dominion Youth Services (DYS) was established in 1999, our mission was to enrich the lives of children and youth by providing therapeutic services.


DYS has grown the past several years and now offers a complete spectrum of services throughout Virginia to people of all ages from pre-school to the elderly.  Our experienced professional staff members work closely with the individuals we serve to ensure positive, successful outcomes.


Just one example of the many types of services we provide is adult psychiatry.  Cynthia Maghakian, MD joined DYS’ program, Dominion Outpatient, earlier this year and specializes in this area.


She has an extensive background in adult psychiatry and has worked for several local hospitals, including Hunter Holmes McGuire Veterans Administration Medical Center and Central State Hospital.  She has also worked in private practice and with local community mental health services.


Dr. Maghakian has vast experience in the treatments of Mood Disorders, PTSD, Substance Abuse, and Thought Disorders.  She also serves as an adjunct Associate Professor at VCU Medical Center.  Please join us in welcoming her to our organization.


We are excited to share our continued growth and are pleased to have the opportunity to serve more individuals by providing the personalized support they need.
