Therapy for Teens & Adults with Anxiety,

Chronic Illness and Pain

Finding your light in the darkest moments!



Columbia, Maryland








Health and worries getting in your way?

Living with worries, chronic illness and constant pain can be hard and isolating. You or a loved one are currently dealing with the challenge of keeping up with daily life while pushing through, hoping to feel “normal”… You find yourself worried about what will happen next. The stress that comes from dealing with the unexpected life changes or your “new norm” is high, and you question whether or not you can handle it.

Oftentimes you feel helpless, sad and angry, asking, “Why can’t my body be normal?!” But you keep those thoughts to yourself and “fake it til you make it,” for fear of letting others down and burdening them. Those worries and chronic health concerns discourage you from trying, even though you still desire to live a meaningful, fulfilling life! You deserve to feel supported with how you really feel rather than hiding at home.

You’ve come to the right place…That stops now!

How I Can Help

Your therapy experience can be personalized to your needs. We can discuss which options would be best fit for you.

Individual Therapy

Having some inner struggles that you’ve kept buried about your health condition or life worries? Are you constantly covering up what you’re really experiencing everyday just to fit in? You can explore these challenges in a private, safe, nonjudgemental individual session.

Group Therapy

Has your chronic illness led you to feel alone? Perhaps you could use support from others experiencing a similar journey. Six-week skills based support groups are offered to help you feel connected to others and more equipped with chronic illness or pain.

Family Therapy

Has your chronic illness or worries started affecting your family relationships? Maybe you feel misunderstood or unheard, and want to feel supported by them? Or maybe you are loved one having a hard time supporting someone with these challenges? Family therapy can everyone learn new, effective ways to support one another through these challenges.

Frequently Asked Questions

Learn How it Works!

I’m nervous about starting therapy. Is that normal?

Therapy can be vulnerable and new, so it’s natural to be nervous. It can be scary to think of opening up or crying in front of someone new, perhaps fearing that it will be awkward and uncomfortable. The fear around that can feel overwhelming. Getting the counseling we need can be challenging. And although it’s normal to be nervous, that doesn’t make it feel great. It takes courage to continue getting the help you need.

Therapy is a space where you can be yourself and feel safe from judgment, including feeling nervous. We’re committed to finding a way to care for your nervousness and ensure sessions are as comfortable as possible.

We’re here if you want to talk about it during a free phone consultation.

How do I know if my therapist is the right one for me?

Take your time to read through this website. If you sense that we may be a good fit based on what you are reading, you can call us.

During a free phone consultation, you can ask one of our therapists about how they have helped other people like you before, ask how they work as a therapist, or any other questions you may have that are specific-to-you. You’ll also be able to tell them what’s up, and you and one of our therapists can decide together how they can help.

It will usually take a couple of sessions to feel comfortable and develop a relationship. During the sessions, you’ll be able to understand how comfortable you feel in sessions. Our approach is not going to work for everyone. What’s most important is that you find someone who you feel is the right fit for you. We can explore that together.
