Are you tired of going to therapy but still experiencing:

Racing Thoughts

Anxiety & Panic Attacks

Not Feeling Safe in Your Body

We specialize in helping women & teens get to the root cause of their suffering

We help our clients go deep into a healing journey:

Trauma Therapy

Our therapists often use EMDR to treat trauma and PTSD. EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) is a gentle yet powerful form of therapy that helps you take the emotional charge out of trauma.

Anxiety Therapy

Our practice focuses on exploring the root causes of your symptoms and giving you practical skills for managing them. We’ll look at the past experiences connected to your present-day anxiety.

Depression Therapy

Our approach to therapy is both very practical and focused on deeper healing. We’ll give you coping skills for regulating your symptoms, but we also want to help you get to the bottom of your depression.

Teen Counseling

We want to incorporate what your teen enjoys into sessions. If your teen is artistic, we encourage them to use their art to express themselves in therapy.

How We Help Women & Teen Girls Overcome The Effects of Trauma

We inspire women and teen girls to amplify their voices and take charge of their lives.

General FAQ’s

Do you offer in-person or online sessions?

We offer both in-person and online therapy sessions to individuals in Maryland and DC, so we can best fit your needs.

Some of our clients prefer to have virtual sessions in the comfort of their own homes, while others favor face-to-face sessions.

How much do sessions cost?

We are a private pay practice so fees are paid in full at the time of service. Payment is accepted in the form of cash, check, or credit card (Visa & MasterCard), including HSA (Health Savings Account) and FSA (Flexible Spending Account) cards.

Individual Sessions cost $175-$195 per 50-minute session.

Couples Sessions cost $210-$225 per 50-minute session.

Do you take insurance?

We are a Private Pay Practice and are out-of-network for most insurances. 

To ease any concerns, we have teamed up with Mentaya Health to assist in filing out-of-network claims, which could qualify you for reimbursements.

What is a typical session like?

We are a client-centered practice, so no two clients are alike. In our initial sessions, we take the time to get to know you and discuss your personal history. After our initial session, here’s a general idea of what you can expect a session to look like:

  • Welcoming: The therapist creates a safe space and checks in on your well-being.
  • Review: Your previous therapy session might be briefly revisited to track your progress.
  • Discussion: You share your thoughts and feelings, while your therapist listens, provides feedback, and guides the conversation.
  • Interventions: Specific therapeutic techniques or exercises may be introduced based on your needs.
  • Feedback: Therapists offer insights or reflections on the session’s discussion.

Our aim is to create a supportive environment where you feel understood and valued. Each session can vary based on your therapist’s style and your needs.

Our Mission

Our mission is to inspire, encourage, and wholeheartedly support women and teenage girls on their path to discovering and reaching their highest potential. We are committed to empowering them to live and thrive fearlessly, while promoting post-traumatic growth.
