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.😀

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.

My goal is to help you uncover your strengths, build values-based coping strategies, and embark on a journey of personal growth. In doing this work, I have discovered that the best way to move through emotional pain is to allow yourself to feel it. That can be incredibly overwhelming but with caring and consistent support, it becomes manageable. 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.
