***Accepting New Telehealth Clients** **Email for quicker response***Life can easily become overwhelming and people can find themselves going through the daily routine as opposed to truly enjoying the journey. Stress, depression, anxiety, grief, and conflict in relationships can rob people of joy and wellness. My focus is to partner with clients, uncover their strengths, and help them achieve the goals they have identified. I believe that people are fully capable of change and I create a safe, non-judgmental, and trusting environment to assist people in the healing process.

Hello, I am a licensed social worker who specializes in clinical mental health disorders, symptoms of depressive, anxiety, traumatic stress, OCD, men's issues, familial stress, and couples counseling . If you are curious about symptom management, recovering from stress, trauma, or substances, or looking for support during stressful time, we will likely be a good fit. I believe mental health is often a family situation so I find it important to offer couples and family practice. My approach is compassionate and validating, however, challenging (at your set pace). Regards, Alexander Amico L.C.S.W. – Massachusetts/Maryland

Although I no longer offer couples therapy, I educate individuals about vital communication skills based on training in Gottman and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
Entering therapy can be a rewarding journey of self-discovery, healing, and transformation, especially when certain aspects of your life feel unmanageable. Challenges can arise repeatedly in personal and professional relationships, and during times of transition. I believe therapy is one of the most effective ways to improve relationships with others by exploring and strengthening a trusting relationship with your Self. Often, my clients have found that therapy leads to a significant reduction in feelings of distress, improvement in communication, and effective problem resolution.

I treat adults, adolescents, children, and couples using psychoanalysis and psychodynamic psychotherapy.
By listening to people and paying attention to what develops, I collaboratively assist them to understand feelings, thoughts, body experiences, and behaviors. This may remove barriers to living life to the full. We often create these barriers early in life and then continue them through habitual thought, feeling-management, and relationship patterns. Healing occurs in a safe, new kind of relationship. Within this relationship, people may recognize things they have known and not known. Those who openly share their thoughts, feelings, and experiences (including a hesitation to share certain things) are often able to make progress.

Relationships are the cornerstone of our lives. When our connection to others—and ourselves—is suffering, we in turn suffer. Perhaps you’ve been feeling out of step with your feelings and suspect that events from your past may be contributing to your difficulties relating to others currently. Or maybe you’re a parent who has concerns about your child’s fears and anxieties. Working with individuals, couples , children, and families in counseling, I help them navigate relationships with vulnerability and authenticity.

I work with individuals, couples , and families.
I am an integrative psychotherapist who grounds my practice in trauma-informed, narrative, and critical consciousness frameworks. I also have experience and training in mindfulness, trauma-focused CBT, child and adolescent trauma, and EMDR therapy. I have also completed population-specific trainings relating to gender, sexuality, racism and oppression. I understand that many mental health challenges cannot be separated from social, environmental, and political contexts, and seek to challenge dominant narratives which negatively impact the ways people come to see themselves. I believe in the power of community.

I work with individuals, couples and families to address interpersonal, family and/or individual dynamics affecting personal or professional life experiences.
Just as music, art, food, seasons and politics resonate with people on uniquely personal levels, so too does therapy. As a Humanist, I integrate multiple treatment modalities to address metal health challenges including fear, sadness, anger, frustration, trauma, guilt, shame or feeling "stuck." The core of my practice encourages continuous translation of therapeutic insights into personal growth opportunities. Integrated interventions may be insight-oriented, cognitive-behavioral, mindful and/or supportive to help us understand who you are, where you come from, who you want to be and what gets in the way.

I see my work with individuals and couples as collaborative and active. Often people feel stuck in their ways of relating and wonder how to create more satisfying connections with spouses, parents, children, friends, etc. I believe that people are drawn toward health and intuitively know when it is time to make changes in their lives. While it is often feelings of sadness or dissatisfaction that bring people to an initial therapy session, this is the first step toward health and feeling better. True change is possible and the process of therapy can make it happen.

As a therapist, I help reduce shame and stigma around mental health, and introduce a range of grounding skills to both calm and boost ourselves.

I work with individuals and couples on a variety of areas regardless of their gender identity.
I believe that we are all on our own journey through life and that the right journey for one person isn't necessarily the right journey for another. My job as a counselor isn't to tell you which one to take; it's to help you remove the roadblocks from your journey in an effort to make your choices in the future clearer for you. In order for counseling to be successful, the counselor and the client need to have a good connection to each other, and I strive to begin forming that connection from the very first meeting. I've worked with a wide variety of clients. Contact me and lets see how we can work together.

What type of Ellicott City mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Ellicott City?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.
