H.O.P.E Behavioral Health (HBH) is an accredited Outpatient Mental Health Clinic (OMHC) that provides an array of services, which include individual counseling for adults and children, couples and family counseling, case management and medication management. HBH strives to improve the quality of life for all clients by providing the highest quality of mental health services and timely access to services and treatments.
I believe that the counseling process should be a collaborative effort between people who come into the professional relationship with open minds and the desire to connect with one another on a human basis. As humans, we all experience adversity in a variety of ways both internally and externally, and sometimes these challenges can be difficult to cope with alone. As a mental health practitioner, I strive to provide the environment for each person to both strive for a better understanding of and learn to react more constructively to challenges in their lives. My ideal client is anyone who has the desire to engage in this way.
Telehealth Therapy from your home! Throughout our everyday lives, we face a variety of situations that can leave us feeling uncertain. We can be left feeling mentally and emotionally exhausted as a result. Like most of us, you want to make positive changes in your life and improve your relationships, but you're not sure how to do it. Feeling stuck is a difficult journey. Whether you're struggling with anxiety, depression, self-sabotage, addiction, relationship issues, existential or spiritual crises, or something else, we've been there. We at One Alkaline Life have dedicated our lives to helping people.
Clinical Social Work/Therapist, LICSW, LCSW-C, LCSW
I am an experienced life coach and licensed clinical social worker in DC, MD and TX with 20 years of experience working with people who want help with making changes in their lives. I have had the opportunity to work with various populations with issues such as self-esteem, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, and everyday life changing situations.
If your life is not working as well as you believe it should and you are willing to investigate why, you are my ideal client. You may be angry, depressed, anxious, or using food to deal with emotional pain. You may be reeling from the effects of childhood issues, abuse, or PTSD, or in such turmoil that you don't know what is real anymore. You may just need a sounding board. You may be struggling with aspects of your identity, or looking for a way to heal from infidelity, trauma, grief, or loss. We will explore that together.
Do you want to begin working on you? Life can be hard and throw many obstacles at you. You may feel that you want to start tackling these obstacles head on. These obstacles can include feeling empty about life, a failed relationship, or a hard time adjusting to a new work environment. No matter the obstacle, you can overcome it and lead an amazing life with some help.
Not taking new clients at the moment. Have you been dragging through life, on auto-pilot, waiting for things to "just get back to normal"? Have you experienced things in life that have held you back from reaching your potential of greatness? The good news is that you have come to the right place to declare healing!
Facing life's challenges can be extremely difficult. It is my goal to provide the support needed as clients work through their past issues and move towards a more empowered future. I take a holistic approach to treatment with an emphasis on spiritual, physical, emotional, and psychological development. I strongly believe in the capacity for change and have been amazed by the obstacles that I have seen clients overcome.
As solution-focused counselors, our goal is to help you uncover your true potential. While we can't change past and present difficult situations, we can work together to understand better and resolve life's challenges. By integrating counseling strategies and techniques, supportive care, and proven biblical principles, we will unearth long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and joyful life.
Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, PhD, LCPC-S
My ideal client is someone who may be initially treatment resistant, has exhausted all other nontreatment options for resolution of personal challenges and has reached the realization that constructive life change is possible through therapy.
"Life is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're gonna get." Such a true statement! Many of us have to "work with the cards we're dealt," even when those cards leave us feeling as if we have very few choices, and as if we have no control of our lives, but, isn't,"Life what you make it"? With that said, are you happy with life? Are you struggling with the chocolates in your box, or cards dealt you? We welcome the opportunity to offer new perspectives, that could result in a more fulfilled life!

Throughout the course of life we are all faced with adversity, barriers and need guidance in making the right decision. I offer a Holistic Person Centered Therapy approach by blending various theories and modalities. Each therapy session is catered specifically to the individual strengths and weakness. Although we may have similar issues, those issues can affect us in totally different ways. My goal is to use the best therapeutic technique that will best meet my client's individual needs. I want my clients to feel that they matter and that their concerns are my concerns and together I can help them live and enjoy life.

**CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. ** Do you or someone you love struggle to stop using substances? Having difficulty coping with the "new norm" dealing with COVID? Do you feel so overwhelmed that everything is helplessly mundane?
Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, MA, LCPC
Therapy is a huge step and I am happy that you are making your mental and behavioral health a priority. Seeking therapy does not automatically mean that you have a mental illness and need medication. While I have clients with Serious Mental Illness (SMIs), most of my clients are hard working individuals who need help coping with daily life’s stressors. They are men and women, just like me and you, with families and friends that they love. They are people with depression, anxiety, low self-esteem and other common challenges. They are regular people with regular problems who simply need someone to listen and help them process.
Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, MS, LCPC
With the trying times we now face daily, you may feel like many people have lost their way. The quiet place we used to gather our thoughts and plan for the future seems to be lite years in the past. It can be hard to listen to what our brains tell us when working, caring for others, or distracted, besides the daily struggle of just living. The “New norm” is a struggle that consumes us daily. We’re so used to multi-tasking that we don’t give time and space to sit down and reflect. Scheduling time for yourself is going to be a more critical component of your wellness.
What type of mental health professional is right for me?
Some of the most common types of mental health providers in Waldorf are psychologists, licensed counselors, therapists, psychotherapists, and licensed clinical social workers, all of whom diagnose mental health conditions and provide individualized treatment.
Services offered, education and credentials vary by type of mental health professional. Each professional in Waldorf then may specialize in certain areas, such as depression, marriage counseling, or anxiety.

Both in-person and online therapy sessions are available from most psychologists.
How to find a specialist?
You can refine your search using the filters on this page. There are several categories you can filter by to find mental health professionals with the experience you are looking for. You may want to filter for CBT Psychologists in Waldorf, or Child Psychologists in Waldorf.
Many find it useful to use filters to view only psychologists that have experience working with certain issues, like Waldorf psychologists specializing in EMDR.
What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Psychologists in Waldorf specialize in therapeutic approaches such as CBT, EMDR, and Interpersonal Therapy (IPT), among others. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.
How to use my insurance?
Many therapists accept health insurance. Check to see if your insurance is covered. Feel free to discuss this when you contact the therapist.
