I am a Licensed Certified Social Worker- Clinical (LCSW-C) practicing in Washington County MD. Washington County remains “Home” to me, the place and the people where I was born and raised. I consider it a privilege to serve the people and families of this community and neighboring communities as they have served me well, across my life. I completed my BS degree from Shepherd University and my MSW from Salisbury University, enjoying 18+ years in the field of social Work serving Children, Individuals and families across a variety of systems. I am currently accepting clients, 16 years of age and older out of my home based private practice. I also accept clients wishing to utilize insurance coverage for in-person and or virtual therapy services through the GROW Therapy Platform. I have a particular affection for both the young and the young at heart believing that we are all striving somewhere along this spectrum. I am a passionate believer that tending to the wellness of our mind, body, emotion and spirit is how we remain there and or return there, depending on where we have found ourselves on this shared journey. I believe that while every person and their experiences are unique, the human experience with its joys, struggle and suffering are common to us all. It is out of this commonality that I work to create space, understanding, connection, and hopefully acceptance, growth & change with my clients.

I am the wife of a Retired Combat Veteran and a mother to four beautiful children. I understand the complexities of being separated from your spouse for extended periods and feeling alone in the relationship and raising the children. Even the most well-prepared and successful person can find themselves wondering how things became so complicated, messy, or challenging, and feel at a loss when it comes to what to do to put the pieces back together. People have been shaped and molded by their past experiences, both good and bad. Often, people feel drawn to focus on the bad experiences, leading to pain and struggles of many kinds.

Hello, I am glad that you stopped by! I am Alice (XiaoRan), Zhao. As an Asian woman and immigrant, I bring a unique perspective to my clients. I have personally dealt with challenges and barriers to adjusting to different cultures, identities, and societal expectations. I provide a safe and healing space for you to work on frightening and stressful experiences that happened to you, whether that can be traumatic events or discriminations that you encountered in your life. It is common to experience side effects of trauma where it feels like you have a lot of negative thoughts, difficult emotions, and physical responses. Trauma can be hard to articulate with words and difficult to describe the memories related to them. In therapy, we can use Brainspotting to process these stressful experiences and symptoms without talking too much about them. If you are an international student, first-generation immigrant, or international worker. I understand that there are many challenges that we face here in the United States. Such as dealing with the USCIS with different types of visas, getting assimilated with a different culture, and learning a different language. As a counselor, I am not only dedicated to empowering individuals but also to bringing hope to their journey to recovery.

Are you feeling depressed and anxious? Are you finding your life is in turmoil because you have to make a change? Maybe you are changing careers or jobs, you’re recently divorced, your home is now an empty nest, or you are retiring. These are only a few of life’s transitions that can bring on depression and anxiety. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, the therapy I use most often, states that A (Antecedent action or event) + B (our belief about that antecedent action or event) = Consequences, (depression or happiness). If you think of a transition or event (A) as a negative experience (B), you will experience the consequences of your belief, as depression and anxiety (C-negative) or as happiness and excitement (C-positive). Unfortunately, many of us view a transition or change as a bad thing, a time when we are facing the unknown without a map. I would like to help you see change as an opportunity, a time for growth and exploration. Come with me. Together we can make change a positive force for a bright future. please schedule appoints only on the hour.😀

Hello! My name is Carolina, and I am a licensed professional counselor (bilingual/Spanish). My greatest passion is helping others live their best lives because no matter who you are or where you come from, you deserve to live the life you CHOOSE! As a clinician, I help my clients gain the insight, skills, and tools to overcome life challenges and move toward healing and wellness. I started my counseling journey about ten years ago, providing psychoeducation and counseling to children and teens. I worked with families, couples, and individuals. Most of my clinical training has been in autism, multi-systemic therapy, and trauma, working primarily with the Latino population or black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC). In addition, I have extensive experience working with victims of crime and sexual assault and survivors and perpetrators of domestic violence, adjustment disorder/transitions, grief/loss, postpartum depression/anxiety, and loss through miscarriage. I recently began my journey as a doctoral student in counseling this past summer. I hope to continue growing my practice and making a positive impact in the lives of others. I am also certified in success and life coaching and love incorporating those skills into my work in therapy. I genuinely believe in the power of the mind and how important it is to care for ourselves and our mental health. I love being with family, reading, watching movies, and relaxing with my pets in my free time. I am a mother, wife, sister, and friend, and I'm so grateful for the people in my life and the opportunity to be part of others' stories and their path to healing. Please reach out if you are ready to take this step in your life. I am looking forward to working together.

I am a psychotherapist who works with a diverse population of people. My goal is to collaborate with individuals to assist them in achieving their therapy goal(S). My treatment modalities are cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy, mindfulness-based therapy, and Ericksonian hypnotherapy approaches. Although I used these modalities, I do not use a one size fits all approach. I am a think-out-of-the-box clinician that will often challenge clients to try approaches that may be out of their comfort zone. Some examples of my experience include working with individual clients on developing skills in coping with mental health conditions/diagnosis, life stress, finding balance, and improving self-esteem. Although I use these approaches, my clients tell me it feels like we are having a conversation as opposed to feeling like they are in a therapy session. I have a specialization in working with Veterans, LGBTQI, men, and people of color populations. However, I work with all people who are seeking mental health services. I am licensed in DC (LICSW), VA (LCSW), MD (LCSW-C), and PA (LCSW). I have BS in Human Ecology, BA in Humanities from The Ohio State University, MSW from San Jose State University and Post Masters fellowship in mental health from Stanford University.

Even though you may be struggling with something right now, you can choose to: see it in a new way... feel differently about it... be open to change... and ultimately, transform. Everything you need is already within you. My role is to help you access it, and use it. I bring curiosity, empathy, and evidence-based therapies -- usually leading with energy psychology/EFT/clinical tapping and ACT/acceptance and commitment therapy, and spiraling out from there as your story leads us. You bring openness, work, and neuroplasticity, and you can change -- literally re-wire -- your brain. When you do, you'll be amazed at the cascade of positive changes this creates... not only within you, but all around you in your life. I'm a licensed mental health professional (LCSW-C) in Maryland and have experience as a social worker and therapist working with children and adults of all ages and backgrounds, providing individual and family therapy in a variety of settings (community mental health agency, schools, inpatient and outpatient healthcare). I learn something valuable from each client with whom I'm privileged to work, and deeply appreciate the insights I gain through our work together. It is hard to be vulnerable in therapy. While I don't know your story and your journey (yet), I do know that if you are considering therapy, you are already doing the hard work of introspection. It takes courage to seek out more for yourself. You already have my respect and my empathy, and I would love to be part of your journey of healing and discovery.

It is deeply healing to be heard and cared for in those vulnerable states and to understand that by attending to early emotional injuries, a path toward an authentic connection to yourself and others is not only possible, but achievable.

I believe it is important in therapy to provide collaborative efforts to help assist individuals who may be navigating through challenging times and are in need of support. In life there are moments of uncertainty and unpredictability that may yield the need for specific guidance that is unique to the individual or family. I am able to offer warm concern that is focused on achieving personal change and growth goals. My ultimate purpose is to connect, understand, and grow therapeutic relationships that are tailored to the needs and desires of the client.

I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor with a Master of Science Degree in Clinical Community Counseling and a Post Masters Certificate in Counseling. I have over 20 years of experience working with a diverse population. I have enjoyed providing support to Adolescents, young adults, and families. I have experience working in a variety of settings, including school and office settings. I use an eclectic approach to providing therapeutic interventions. I believe that therapeutic interventions and techniques must be tailored to meet the individuals learning/communication style. Therapy is most beneficial when a strength-based approach is utilized. I believe that an individual’s strengths are used to help develop lagging skills. In my years of experience, I utilize techniques from a Reality Therapy approach which helps to acknowledge small increments of success (evidence based). This helps to increase competence in individuals of all ages. Therapy is individualized to help individuals develop and identify their life purpose (spirituality). Of great importance, I believe in modeling the importance of building relationships through communication. I have experience working with stress, anxiety, depression, anger management and issues around coping with transitional stages of life. I enjoys reading, spending time in nature, and learning and exploring cultures from around the world.

Stress and trauma take a toll on our bodies both mentally and physically. Therapy can help release that energy and process emotions. Some things I can help with are managing stress, healing from past trauma, identity exploration, and just navigating how to function and find joy in this crazy world. I tend to connect and work well with professionals with autism.

My name is Willard and I am a licensed counselor in several states. My practice primarily focuses on helping others deal with ambiguity. Often our thoughts and subsequently what we teach ourselves becomes rigid and fairly black and white. Using a pragmatic and authentic approach to therapy I help others to be okay with things that are beyond their control and work with them to establish themselves as the protagonist in their own story. This is primarily accomplished through conversation and allowing you the client to guide the therapy in the direction it needs to go.

I have a master of science in mental health counseling from Capella University. I am trained to work with individuals, groups, families and couples. I also have extensive knowledge and sensitivity in working with individuals experiencing anxiety, depression, bipolar, difficult life transitions, parenting issues, relationship problems, LGBTQIA issues and other life challenges. My understanding of counseling comes from many different theoretical orientations. I believe that the client or clients have the solutions to their dilemmas within one’s self. Therefore the counselor does not have the “answers” to the client’s “problem” but is a facilitator of the process that helps the client take responsibility and action and come to a resolution. I am here to support and guide you on that journey.
