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 an expressive arts therapist with degrees in Pastoral Counseling and Early Childhood/Special Education, I bring my experience working with children and families, counseling those with mental health challenges who combat racism and poverty, and accompanying people struggling with recovery or a trauma history. In addition to verbal therapy, I use the expressive arts and psychodrama techniques to dig more deeply into troublesome issues with an underlying strengths-based approach.

My interest in mental health started at home, with my immediate family. From my own experiences, I became passionate about the overall mental wellbeing of everyone around me. With this, I pursued mental and behavioral health education and training in Baltimore, and have worked in the field for over eight years. I use personal and professional experience to help others reach their highest potential.

I specialize in symptoms of Adult and Child Anxiety and Depressive Disorders, and ADHD. I assist frustrated parents with changing child behaviors which are impacting the family in a negative way. I believe that everyone is capable of overcoming obstacles and moving toward becoming their best self. All families have challenges, and can use these challenges as opportunities to improve their relationships. Therapy is a tool that provides a safe, accepting environment in which people can begin to make the changes they need to have the life they want to live.

Hi there, I'm Laurie! Do you wish providers would look at you through a whole person lens instead of discussing health and mental health separately? Do you want a provider for your child who is playful and skilled at engaging children? Are you an adult who likes a more personal, connected approach to therapy? Do you have a teen who has had difficulty connecting to other providers? Well look no further! I enjoy using storytelling, videos, and conversation to help clients of all ages improve self-esteem, self-worth and gain a better understanding of sense of self. A licensed clinical social worker and board-certified supervisor with over 25 years of experience working with children, teens, and adults, I spent much of that time working for the world-renowned Kennedy Krieger Institute, a Johns Hopkins affiliate, where I was also in leadership. I have post-graduate certificates in Treating Children & Adolescents, Leadership, Fitness Nutrition, and Integrative Medicine for Mental Health providers. More personally, I love hiking, watching Marvel movies, lifting weights, and crowd surfing at concerts. I believe we should never stop playing like children!

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!

“Fortunate are those who take the first steps.” - Paulo Coelho. My goal is to help others embrace life’s journeys and promote wellness. A great moment in therapy happens when you take steps to become the best version of yourself and feel worthy. My name is Dr. Linda Timme. I am a current Licensed Clinical Social Worker certified by the National Board of Social Work in Maryland, Virginia, and Pennsylvania. I am a Bilingual Clinical Therapist with over 15+ years of experience in mental health and specialize in the treatment of Post-Traumatic Disorder, complex trauma that results from grief and loss, domestic violence, among other traumatic events. Life transitions are difficult and can result in situations such as cultural adjustment, prejudice/discrimination, decreased self-esteem, depression, and anxiety. I base my therapy on a powerful blend of traditional, holistic approaches that are client-centered and evidence-based. These techniques are proven to be effective in treating multiple and co-occurring conditions.
