You aren’t sure if your environment needs to change, or you do. Both? You’re taking care of everyone around you and you’ve got nothing left to give. You’ve lost touch with yourself and aren’t sure where to go from here. Transitions keep coming in your life and you want to stop dreading every change. You dream of the day that you’re no longer bogged down by to-do lists and can just take a breath, but the world seems to keep on spinning around you. Let’s change that!

Finding a therapist is often way harder than it should be. It takes effort and energy to realize that what you're doing right now isn't working and subsequently reach out for help. Maybe you've been feeling sad, anxious or just off for a long time now, or maybe this is a new experience you haven't had to deal with in the past. Whichever your position, sometimes it's necessary to have an objective outside party help you stand back and examine your life more holistically. We often feel as though our story is set in stone, and the role we're playing can't be changed. We get stuck thinking the same thoughts, acting the same as always.

In over 20 years of practice I have specialized in anxiety disorders and depression - working with individuals, couples and families. Life is forever changing, which can be both exciting and stressful. Transitioning into or out of marriage, loss of a loved one, job change or even retirement are all possible triggers for anxiety and or depression. Specific phobias can prevent you from making important life decisions, as you may try to avoid situations that pose too great a fear. While depression or anxiety can prevent you from connecting with others, therapy can be a safe place to do so with guidance, support and acceptance.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in 20817, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in 20817 listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in 20817 are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in 20817

For example, if you're seeking a marriage counselor in 20817 you'll find that most therapists are trained in marriage counseling or couples counseling in 20817 and couples therapy. And they welcome families for family counseling in 20817 or family therapy in 20817.
