About

I am here to help you and to listen. We can work together to better understand the challenges in your life. Through talking, things will get better. Today, you are one step closer to a new you where you can feel empowered and go on that positive path to growth and well-being. As a therapist, my goal is to help you lead a life that is worth celebrating. By applying complementary therapy approaches and techniques, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
I provide individual counseling to adults, children as young as 3 (play therapy), teens and college students. Also, I also offer in person EMDR for clients who have experienced all kinds of trauma (big and small), anxiety, stress, grief. I welcome all clients and use various approaches to therapy. Soon I will be offering EMDR remotely using telehealth.
For more info about me please visit my website: www.cahanincounseling.com and click on “About Dr. Amy”. I am licensed in Maryland as an LCPC, in NYS as an LMHC and in Washington State as an LMHC (diff. name/same license). My hours are Monday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 5pm. I look forward to hearing from you! Free 1/2 hour consultations available as well.

Cahanin Counseling 's Groups

Women who suffered same sex sexual abuse as kids

The group, offered via telehealth only at this time, is for women who suffered sexual abuse as children by another child of the same gender/sex. Many women have had to hide in the shadows and not get the support they need for their sexual abuse afflicted upon them by another girl as children. There is a lot of stigma behind it as well and a lot of shame. This group is a small group (no more than 8 participants) and will be a closed group, meaning that unless the group members agree, there will not be any added members.
