First I want to acknowledge your effort to get help for your issues. You may be struggling with relationships, depression from a loss, anxiety about your future, memories of a terrible incident in the past, or an abusive childhood. Whatever it is that is getting in the way of your current life and your goals for the future, when you have the courage to work through these seemingly impossible challenges, you will find hope and your life will get better. I'm here to walk with you on this creative journey, your path to healing and wholeness. As a therapist with degrees in Pastoral Counseling and Early Childhood/Special Education, I bring my experience working with people who combat racism and poverty, teaching children and working with families, and accompanying people struggling with recovery or a trauma history.

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.

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 always schedule a free 15-minute consultation call BEFORE an intake. Please select "consultation call" first when scheduling an appointment if the option is available, and if it is NOT available, please note that the initial appointment will be a free 15-minute phone consultation.* Hello! Thanks for visiting my profile. I’m originally from Philadelphia and now based in Baltimore. I am licensed in both Maryland and Texas (where I previously lived and went to graduate school). I have worked in the social services field for over 15 years and have been a licensed social worker and practicing therapist for 5 years. Most of my experience has consisted of working with survivors of violence (family, intimate partner, and/or sexual violence) as well as with Spanish-speaking immigrants. I enjoy working with caregivers and their children and with mixed status immigrant families. Although I am not Hispanic/Latine, I lived in Peru for about 5 years and speak Spanish fluently, so I am comfortable providing therapy in Spanish. At this time, I specialize in supporting adolescents and young adults who are healing from trauma, managing anxiety, or undergoing life changes. As a community organizer myself, I also enjoy supporting fellow organizers who are experiencing burnout. I typically provide tele-therapy to individuals ages 12+. If you are interested in sessions for a younger child and/or family work, please reach out to discuss this option further. Additionally, I provide psychological evaluations in English and Spanish for immigrant clients who are looking to support their legal cases (asylum, U-Visa, VAWA, and extreme hardship waivers). Because these are completely separate from therapy sessions, please schedule a consultation call only or contact me at the website link below so that we can review this option.

I am a Board Certified Licensed Clinical Independent Social Worker. I am licensed in Maryland and Washington DC and have 17+ years extensive experience serving in various behavioral and mental health settings. I am Certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) who provides client - centered psychotherapy. I offer a safe, warm, therapeutic, judgement- free space for Adults (18+) and Older Adults (65+). Each client will be met where they are, with acceptance and empathy. Life happens and we encounter challenges at one point or another. Negative thoughts and beliefs often control how we think, feel and relate. Over time, our negative emotions and pervasive thought patterns may become overwhelming and repressed. We will reflect upon any challenges you may have; including past and present. And as a team, we will get to a root cause, identify your trigger(s) and work collaboratively to develop insight, awareness, coping skills and tools to build your resilience, so you can arrive at answers within yourself. In essence, I'll support and empower you through your journey.

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.

Hello, my name is Ronak Makadia, and I am a licensed clinical psychologist with additional training in social work. As a second-generation, Asian American I quickly learned the stigma and shame attached to attending therapy, especially within the Asian American community. As a cis-gender woman of color, I value and will provide culturally competent services. Please note that I only accept adults and older adults who are high-functioning but need support to overcome barriers. Due to the nature of my private practice, I am unable to accept clients who are seeking treatment for trauma, substance use or severe mental illness. I work alongside patients to overcome any barriers they may be facing. I will always encourage you to create, learn, and consistently use healthy coping mechanisms. To avoid staying stuck, I collaborate with you in developing solutions to aid you in moving forward in your life. We all get stuck sometimes and I am here to help. Therapy does not have to be a painful experience and I will be here to guide you toward improvement in a welcoming, affirmative environment. I support the movement to destigmatize therapy and make mental health care accessible for all. I will continue to support this mission and provide quality counseling. Talk to me about scheduling a first appointment if you are interested in working together. I look forward to working with you!

It is the policy of Dr. Olushola Bakare, LMFT, that after a one-month consistent lapse of meeting with a client our professional relationship will be considered terminated.

Hi there, my name is Darrius. Do you feel pulled in a million directions, unable to fit it all in? Are you struggling to keep up with your relationships, work and health? Are you feeling overwhelmed or just plain stuck in life? I help people restructure their damaged relationships. Relationships are more than romantic interactions between two people. Relationships as I define it can be with anyone or anything that you exchange energy with. The biggest relationship that we struggle to understand and grow with is the person staring at us in the mirror each morning. No matter what relationship your struggling with ( work, home, family, yourself.) I'm here to help. Seeking therapy can feel scary but you're making the right choice. You deserve a safe space to heal and grow. In our sessions together, I'll meet you with compassion and evidence-based techniques so you can overcome the hangups and habits holding you back. Let's work together!

I am a flexible counselor, comfortable using an eclectic mix of interventions from multiple theoretical modalities to suit the unique needs of each client. My default approach is a mix of psychodynamic and cognitive interventions, with an overarching focus on the importance of narrative meaning-making in the emotional lives of clients. I have experience working with clients from a range of socioeconomic backgrounds and age groups, ages 18 and up. I offer couples and family counseling but am not a specialist in those fields. In my free time, I enjoy playing strategy board, card and computer games. I am an amateur poet and animal lover, as well as an avid camper.

Hello and Welcome! I'm Kendra and I love helping people through my unique background in education and mental health counseling. You have probably been feverishly searching for the right person and you have finally found the right one. Do you have trouble staying organized, focused, or remembering to do things? Do any of those things cause you to feel anxious or worried? Do you find yourself being anxious about things that are out of your control? ADHD/ADD and anxiety are typically linked and both can be overwhelming. I help empower adults to manage their ADHD/ADD and reduce their anxiety. I also help people who are feeling anxious about making adjustments due to major changes in their lives such as going to college, relocating, leaving a job, etc.
