Daria Willoughby

LCSW-C

About me

Hi,
I am an LCSW-C, licensed in the state of Maryland with 5 years of experience working as a Behavioral Health counselor and crisis therapist and Certified in DBT. I have worked with a wide range of concerns including Mental health diagnosis, anxiety, Anger management, with a focus in Domestic Violence, Motivational interviewing, Crisis intervention and Solution based therapy.

My counseling style is relaxed and direct. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, not believing in stigmatizing labels. There is a need for me to build rapport with each individual served to better assist in understanding the process we are embarking on. There must be a mutual understanding as my goal is for every client to be a part of their wellness journey. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, Crisis intervention, psychodynamic, holistic counseling, and Cognitive-behavioral counseling.

The journey to change is not easy but doing it alone only makes it more difficult. If you will allow me to, we can take this journey through the stages of change together.

I look forward to working with you!

The best therapist I’ve ever had. I’ve made so much progress in the last year. She didn’t give up on me. She knew the person I could become before I saw it in myself.

She’s honestly the best. She listens to me and makes me feel heard. She’s my first therapist and I’ll definitely be sticking with her because she always knows the right things to say and always provides me with resources to cope with any and every situation I’m going through

When I signed up I made it clear I needed a counselor you was laid back to make easier to talk.

The counselor I was assigned to was Daria Willoughby, she is a prefect match for me. After my session with Daria I actually feel less stressed and depressed. Thank you to whom ever decided to match us up it's a wonderful match.
