Virtual Therapy

We are open for business (COVID-19 Update)


In response to the COVID-19 virus, our offices are closed for in person counseling.  We have temporarily moved entirely to offering telemedicine via a HIPAA compliant app that’s simple and easy to use.  This means you can still get the support you and your family need from the comfort of your home, simply by using a phone, tablet or computer.  Call us today to set up your appointment @  410.942.6585 or click the button below to send us an email.

“Mental health isn’t just an athlete thing. What you do for a living doesn’t have to define who you are. This is an everyone thing. No matter what our circumstances, we’re all carrying around things that hurt — and they can hurt us if we keep them buried inside.” – Kevin Love



What comes to mind when you think about “therapy”? For some, the idea of working with a therapist is daunting, maybe even a little scary. Some may ask themselves, “Does going to therapy mean I’m failing in life? Does it mean I’m not capable of standing on my own two feet? Does it mean there’s something wrong with me?” The answer to all of these questions is a resounding “No!”



People come to therapy for a variety of reasons. You may be experiencing challenges in daily living, difficulty in navigating life transitions like divorce, end of a relationship, death of a loved one, family changes or job loss. You may be experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, or have a deep desire to live a more joyous, meaningful life.



Therapy is about removing obstacles and developing the capacity for self acceptance, self expression and a sense of empowerment.



We view therapy as a partnership between the client and therapist. We provide an attentive, nurturing environment where you can discuss and explore issues without judgement. Where your negative thought patterns will be challenged, where you can learn and practice new skills. You will provide your best efforts and openness. We will work to help you resolve the inner conflicts that are preventing you from living a fulfilling life.

Together, we will form a partnership for your best life.
