Andrea Mendez, MSW, LCSW-C, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Germantown
Welcome! I believe that therapy is a highly effective tool to help with a specific, pressing challenge, as well as for individuals simply seeking more insight into their life and behavior patterns. We will explore your thoughts and feelings in a supportive and encouraging environment. I will use my various experiences to provide a holistic approach to therapy that will include creative as well as traditional methods to help you make positive changes in your life. Online Video Conferencing Therapy is also available via doxy.me for residents of New Jersey and Maryland.
I value the therapeutic relationship as one of our helpful tools for healing and change. We will often work from a "backwards, forwards" mentality that will create understanding of how your current concerns came to be. Making different choices in the present will change the future.
I come from an acceptance and commitment therapy viewpoint which allows us to embrace who we are while simultaneously seeking change. I look forward to providing customized therapy utilizing various approaches including cognitive behavioral, psychodynamic, and neurobiological. We will work together to get you the life you want!
