Hello, my name is Stephen Pleasant, and I'm a psychotherapist for men. Why therapy for men? Well, because sometimes a man just needs a pork shoulder to cry on. That being said, I will also work with women as well. It’s a recognized human tendency for men to get “stuck” in their lives and to end up “settling” for the status quo when deep down they know they are capable of a great deal more. Here’s the truth; You are never “stuck” with your present circumstances. The Game of Life is a psychological and spiritual journey and winning at this game requires you to change your play and learn to think differently and do things in a new way. I help men break out from being “stuck” in life, resigned to producing results that are disappointing to them and others. My goal is to see transformative progress in men’s confidence, clarity, and self-expression, so that they may gain the fuller personal and work life they thought was beyond them.

What does it mean to be human? I like to think of myself as an introspective and critical thinker. How does this question get answered? One way that I have come to appreciate the conversation is to listen to people's thoughts and processes of how they are trying to get to the answer. It is found somewhere at the beginning of life, the present in which we are living, and towards the outlook of the future. Are we missing something in our search and can we learn from one another? I think the truth is that it can be found in many of our stories and thoughts even when it can be ugly, confusing, and isolating from the status quo. Along the way, if you uncover the strength within yourself and embolden the voice as you narrate your story, we may discover that the answers you find are nothing to be ashamed or scared of. So tell me about yourself... what is your story?

I believe that therapy is a collaborative process. Therefore, my role is to assist you in finding solutions that benefit you in the best way possible. My area of focus is working with teens and adults on stress, anxiety, and depression. My highest priority as a therapist is cultivating a space for you, the client, to feel safe, supported, and unconditionally accepted. I have been doing therapy for 24 years and am passionate and committed to supporting others on their healing journey. My clinical approach is person-centered first and foremost, while incorporating cognitive-behavioral and motivational interviewing methods to focus on your goals and motivations, and target what solutions are most effective and appropriate for you. As a licensed clinical social worker and fellow human, I know the importance of telling your story in a safe space. You need to feel heard, supported, and seen, and you need to allow the courageous healing process to take place. You need to let out what you have been holding in, laugh, cry, feel, and express all your emotions to celebrate your strengths and personal growth. Therapy takes commitment and willingness to show up and be your true self in a safe and supportive way. If you are ready to do the work to make the changes and feel better, I am looking forward to starting a professional working relationship with you. Best Sabra

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.

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.
