The Counseling Center of Maryland®

The professionals at The Counseling Center of Maryland® use a variety of techniques to help improve the quality of life for individuals, couples, groups, and families. We work with children, adolescents and adults. Through our strength-based and collaborative approach, we offer new insights that enable our clients to see things from different perspectives. We provide treatment and counseling for anxiety, depression, grief, emotional regulation issues, self-esteem, relationship concerns, and parenting. Through active and evidence based strategies we help empower our clients to make choices that evoke positive changes in their lives.

Together, we will look at feelings, thoughts, sensations, and behaviors as vehicles to affirmative change. All of our clinicians have obtained the gold standard of advanced, evidence-based training within their areas of expertise, and each brings a unique perspective to our team. Some of the specialties within our practice include Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Process Groups, Psychodynamic Work, Gottman Therapy, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness.

The Counseling Center of MarylandTM also offers multiple modalities of group therapy. Often, when we think of group therapy, we envision "support groups," but this image fails to portray the real power of group therapy. Research shows that group therapy can be equally — if not more — effective than individual therapy in helping clients achieve their goals. While all of our groups do provide a supportive environment, our true focus in group therapy is empowerment and change. Please visit our Group Therapy page to learn more.

The Counseling Center of Maryland® (CCM) specializes in a variety of services for individuals wanting to create change in their lives. We provide Individual, Couples, Family, and Group Therapy for children, adolescents, and adults.

Group Therapy

CCM provides an array of opportunities for clients to participate in group therapy. Group therapy can help people wrestling with a wide variety of issues, and it is widely accepted as an effective, evidence-based mode of therapy. Research indicates that, for many, it is even more effective than individual therapy. Costs are substantially lower than fees for individual sessions and generally are covered by health insurance.

Individual Therapy

The Counseling Center of Maryland® provides individual therapy for children, adolescents, and adults who are experiencing grief, depression, anxiety, relationship difficulties, phase-of-life issues, and more. We recognize that everyone can feel overwhelmed or stuck at times, and we offer a variety of techniques to help clients of all ages through those difficult moments.

Couples Therapy

Relationships are hard work. Without the right tools, communication may turn negative or simply grind to a halt. This leads to increasing distance and anger, and so the pattern repeats. Once off track, it can be difficult for a couple to find their way back to the place of loving kindness they once shared. We work with couples to resolve conflict, increase intimacy, and discover new sources of hope.

Family Therapy

Our family can be our greatest source of support, comfort, joy, and love. It can also be our primary source of stress and grief. CCM therapists provide support for families wishing to reduce conflict and increase connection and warmth to create a more nurturing environment for growth.
