My name is Circe Dunwoody. I am a license psychotherapist. In my psychotherapy practice I help couples and individuals to overcome life difficulties by using cognitive behavior therapy. Many couples and individuals feel overwhelmed by the desire to balance the high demands from work and family life. They report feelings of emptiness and loss of drive. Some report feeling of depression, anxiety and low self-esteem. Others contemplate divorce as a solution to decrease the pressure they are internalizing. You can contact me for help if you are experiencing some of the feelings I have mentioned above, and you are ready to make changes in your life. l work with couples and individuals in a safe and confidential platform environment. In life we all need support and understanding from others. Sometimes the best solution is to seek professional help. Having emotional support is extremely helpful. Relying on friends or family members is also helpful. However, you may not want to overwhelm them with problems. The most intelligent solution is seeking professional help.

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.

Are you struggling with feelings of anxiety, depression or other uncomfortable emotions? Has something happened in your life recently (or even long ago) that is causing you distress, interfering perhaps with your work, school, relationships or otherwise? To begin with, you're not alone! Also, there is help available. I'm Lynn, a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Maryland and Florida. I've been a practicing psychotherapist for the past 25 years. Having worked in private practice, hospitals, mental health centers and hospice, I am familiar and comfortable working with all ages, stages of life, sexual orientation, cultural and ethnic backgrounds. I have found the single most important factor in achieving successful outcomes in counseling is the connection between therapist and client. Therefore, I strive to bring my authentic, caring, and non judgmental self to each and every encounter I have with my clients. My diverse therapeutic background allows me to use multiple modalities in counseling clients. I strive to tailor my counseling techniques to match each individual's needs. Typically, using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Dialectical Behavior Therapy help clients grow, gain insights into their behavior(s) as well as others and gain tools and skills in managing difficult emotions or situations in their lives. Deciding to enter into counseling can be a scary thought for many. If you are thinking about therapy, I encourage you to give yourself the gift of self-care and good mental and emotional health by taking that first step. I look forward to meeting and working with you!
