Cloraine Benoit, LCSW-C, LICSW


13 years of experience

I am a Brooklyn-born Haitian, and have been inspired and encouraged by many people in my life to pursue a major in Social Work.I attended Yeshiva University in NYC and received my Master of Social Work degree in 2009. I am licensed in Maryland and DC, and am a Certified Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Specialist. I’ve worked at John Hopkins Bayview Medical Center as a psychotherapist and provided individual therapy to transitional youths, families, adults, and those with special needs. Being a recent liver transplant survivor, I understand and appreciate how much therapy can help by providing mental and emotional support during difficult and stressful times. Family and community are everything to me. I am married with two children and have an amazing, supportive local community and extended family. I can’t wait to build a supportive, caring and effective therapeutic relationship with you.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

No one should have to walk alone in this world. Therapy is a community that provides support, empathy, trust, awareness, and clarity. With over 12 years of clinical experience, I am dedicated to being a part of that community for my clients. I am a Certified Autism Spectrum Disorder Clinical Specialist, and I specialize in treating anxiety, grief and loss, depression, mood disorders, and trauma.
