Guileine Kraft

(Ph.D., LCSW-C)

About Me

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!

Guileine is very insightful, professional, understanding and above all knowledgeable. She's not the type of counselor that's just going to lick your wounds, she's going to ask hard questions followed by great advice, recommendations, and Revelations. She doesn't give answers or solutions for you to follow because she's the counselor and she thinks that's best for you. She gives you answers and solutions that she and her client both think are fitting. Overall this woman will change your life.

Guileine is the third stop of my online therapy tour. After the last two I thought this format was not for me. Guileine spoke to me in a non-clinical manor with a friendly demeanor. In the past, I came across therapists who seemed to follow a script. Conversation flows very easily with Guileine and doesn't feel contrived.
