Often, we all go through difficult times. Times of despair, painful circumstances, and distress; Situations that many times affect our peace of mind and our relationships with ourselves and others. Sometimes, we even question the purpose of our lives because we feel like there is no purpose for what we are going through. As a caring clinician, I allow and encouraged my client to create a space for healing, where they feel in control of choosing their own path to freedom and sense of control.

I specialize in anxiety, couples counseling, Christian counseling, holistic health, family conflict, grief, parenting, postpartum, self-esteem issues, and women's issues. Life is filled with challenges, from relationships and life changes to traumatic events, anxiety, and depression. Finding a space where you are seen and heard is crucial; a place where you are valued and free to process your fears, hurts, expectations, and needs—from the practical to the painful. A place where you are welcome to share all parts of your story: mental, emotional, spiritual, physical, and relational. This is that place, and I am so glad you are here! I am a certified social worker licensed in Maryland, DC, Michigan, and California, with licenses as an LICSW, LCSW-C, and LCSW. With over 17 years of education and professional experience, I offer a client-centered space where we work together to bring change, healing, and help wherever you need it. I have lived in several places across the country, experiencing various cultures, strengths, and needs. We will work together to create an effective plan with tools and strategies specifically tailored for you. I understand that no single modality is universally effective for every individual or couple, and I have dedicated my career to acquiring proficiency in various clinical approaches. My experience includes Christian Counseling, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Trauma-Informed Therapy, Couples Counseling, Grief Therapy. While CBT provides a main structure for my approach, the foundation of our work is built on your story and the core beliefs you hold. Therapy is only as effective as the relationship built between you and me. As such, I prioritize authenticity, transparency, and trust. If you are looking for a safe, genuine, welcoming space, I trust you will find it here! I hope to have the opportunity to journey with you through this season of your life...

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.😀

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.

Hi, my name is Candace, but you can call me Candy, I have worked in the mental health field for 20 years and have been licensed for 4 years. This experience has allowed me to gain vast knowledge in the many nuances that can affect one’s life. I have been honored by each person that I’ve worked with as they have allowed me a windows view of their life and the issues each of them had while working together as a team to overcome these issues. My thought on counseling is that the person seeking therapy and the therapist are a team and work together as a team to find solutions and overcome the issues at hand. I have a desire to use my empathetic and compassionate nature along with my skillset and experience to help people find and utilize services, coping skills and solutions that will assist them in gaining a better quality of life. I do this by providing a confidential safe and judgment free place for those seeking therapy to discuss their situations and needs. I use a strengths-based approach along with cognitive behavioral therapy and thinking outside the box to help people in identifying and reaching their goals.

Hi, everyone. I'm Susan. Welcome to my world – an experience in which we engage in a unique partnership on what may be one of the most important journeys of your life. Are you feeling unloved, unappreciated, helpless, hopeless due to some unplanned reality in your life. Do you need healing from adversity such as the ending of a relationship, the loss of employment, an unexpected debilitating illness, the death of a loved one, post-partum depression. These are a few of life occurrences that may have us feeling we will never see the light in the darkness or rise out of the flood of emotion. No matter what the adversity, we each have the inborn resilience to either return to a previous "normal" or carve out a new "normal." On this journey, we are truly partners. Each of us has a part in the process of healing. I rely on my knowledge and skills to guide me in EMDR, CBT, CPT, DPT, or Mindfulness. New coping strategies help to reduce the intensity of symptoms and permit you to face whatever painful occurrence has come into your life. So…I invite you to invite me to share this journey.
