About me

Hi, I am Hélène Diop is a licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, LCPC & LCAD Board-Approved Supervisor in the State of Maryland for more than 14 years. I have treated and supported individuals, couples, and families on three continents – Europe, North & South America – as well as various states in the US. My cross-cultural professional trainings and experiences over the years has uniquely equipped me to understand that a person’s challenges in life are often resolved by effectively negotiating one’s worldview’s demands and the context in which a person currently lives. I tailor my treatment approaches to my clients/patients’ needs and strengths. I do not believe that “One size fit all” would be the most effective approach in the field of psychology. I have experience in supporting/treating individuals/families with related legal issues (Substance Use Disorders, Drug & Mental Health Court), as well as depression, anxiety, schizophrenia, mental health crisis, and relationship issues. I base my clinical practice on integrative approaches such as: Schema, Psychoanalyses, Emotional Intelligence, Reality, Solution Focused therapies, and some aspects of the Gottman approach of couple therapy.

Before Helene I hated therapy. It feels like people telling lies you wanna hear and they take your money after. Helene cared, was diligent, took initiative, and made my visits something to look forward to every week. She. Makes. Time.

Throughout my life I have worked with many therapists. I wouldn't recommend any of them other than Helene. Her approach supports my need to intellectualize and compartmentalize my mental health struggles with the demands of life. I find her approach unique and highly effective.
