About Me

ABOUT ME
Are you ready for a change? Are you ready to live your best life? It takes courage to seek help for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. It’s not always easy to ask for help but the good thing is you do not have to do it alone. I’m here to help you get from where you currently are to where you want to be.

I am a Clinical Psychologist and licensed Clinical Social Worker in Maryland and the District of Columbia (LICSW, LCSW-C) with over 20 years of experience working in executive behavioral health positions while conducting psychotherapy in my private practice. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, dually diagnosed, and career challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and offer a space where you can be your true and authentic self. My integrated approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, psychodynamic, motivational-interviewing, mindfulness and trauma-focused therapy. As no two people are the same, I will tailor our dialog and your treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

Remember,” nothing changes if Nothing Changes”

I look forward to working with you!

Reviews

Written by A.N. on Nov 19, 2020 after counseling with Chandra for 1 month on issues concerning stress, anxiety, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, self esteem, and coping with life changes

Dr. Colvin is perfect for someone who feels stuck and trapped by their current mental health situation, who couldn't see a spark of hope in the darkness of it all. She will push you so hard to change when you don't even think it's possible. Providing practical skills, timely responses, and honesty as sobering as winter morning air, she will act as the best guidance while you make the changes you had always wanted, dreamt about.

Dr. Colvin is caring, dedicated and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable with her from day one and remained impressed by her commitment. In a very short time she understood my needs, and what would be the best approach to help me tackle my issues. I feel lucky to have found Dr. Colvin and truly recommend her.

Dr Colvin is a highly skilled and experienced therapist and counselor. I remain impressed in her dedication and also her ability to help hone in on how I’m feeling, and then develop strategies to manage it. Would highly recommend.
