Life is an individual process based on individual growth and evolution. I have 10+ years of experience as a licensed Social Worker (LCSW-C) in Maryland with clients age 3 to 54 including Military Service Members and their families, both in deployed and garrison environments. I am a trusted confidant and adviser, willing to travel life’s journey through growth and evolution with each client. I have an eclectic therapeutic approach grounded in cultural self-determination and cognitive behavioral therapy. I have a PhD in Social Work and serve as an Officer in the Maryland Army National Guard.
My expertise lies with individuals managing depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, and daily life challenges. I have a passion for using aspects of the client’s culture - including music (especially hip-hop) and the arts - to enhance the therapeutic process. I have worked with clients across a number of cultures and ethnicities. I have experiences as an adjunct faculty member and training students and professionals in face-to-face and online settings. I am technologically inclined and consider the use of technology to enhance the healing process and daily living.
I welcome the opportunity to help you find creative space for independent thinking, growth, and healthy living!
I expect each client to be successful!

These quotes represent just a few of the many positive reviews that we have received for Guileine Kraft. We don't pay anyone to provide their review and they are all made voluntarily. Some people's experience receiving therapy with BetterHelp might be different.
I love having a therapist who not only listens to me but really makes me think. And help me focus on ways to cope with my anxiety. And helping my mindset change from it won’t change to I can make myself better.

Dr Kraft is a wonderful therapist. She listens, she is there when you need her in an emergency and she cares.

Dr. Kraft is an amazing therapist. She is empathetic, insightful, supportive and makes you feel heard and understood. I haven’t felt this comfortable with a therapist in a long time. I trust her perspective and opinion, and feel like she has really helped me grow during these past few months. She has never once been judgmental. I can’t thank her enough for her support and kindness. She’s a true gift to the social work profession and all the lives she touches.

Guileine is a great therapist. She is extremely positive and puts a great perspective onto issues and creates a better understanding for me. She provides me space and time to reflect on her questions and is extremely supportive. Simply put, she is awesome!

I appreciate her giving perspective based on her experience. It helped a lot for me to uncover some challenges I’m dealing with. I all text her candor in identifying my self-defeating behaviors - enabling. Thanks for that Guileine.
