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 Behavior 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! I am Rose. I am a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist (LCMFT) and Registered Nurse. I attended The University of Maryland for my BS and MS in Family Studies. My LCMFT program taught me to look at challenges that happen inside us and between us. I help clients look at the patterns in their lives that no longer serve them. I help clients find their voice to speak up, and change the interactions inside themselves and between their significant others, at home, work or play. I work with clients short and long term. I believe in psycho-education: educating my clients about how therapy and change work. I do client coaching for those clients who prefer not to use their insurance for their counseling sessions. I try to make therapy work within the clients financial abilities.

Hi, I'm Lindsay. I am here to help you on your healing journey. I believe that each and every person holds all of the wisdom they need to overcome life’s traumas directly within themselves. My job as a therapist is to help shine a light on your own inner wisdom, and guide you through the healing process in a safe, nonjudgmental space.

I am passionate about helping my clients navigate their journey to their most authentic, free, and true selves. I believe that when we have the tools to attune ourselves to our mind, body and spirit we come home to ourselves. And when we are at home within ourselves, we are free. Whether you are seeking to recover from narcissistic abuse, intimate partner violence, or family or childhood trauma, or you are struggling with a difficult life transition or depression, or anxiety. I will meet you exactly where you are. I believe that each individual is the expert on their own lives. My sole purpose as your therapist is to guide you with compassion and care to help you unlock your innate inner wisdom and equip you with the tools you need to overcome the trauma of your past.
