Laura Willard, LCSW-C
I am a licensed clinical social worker in Maryland with over 14 years of experience working as a mental health therapist. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, childhood adjustment issues and ADHD. 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 I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach is strengths based combines cognitive-behavioral therapy, play therapy for children, family therapy, client centered therapy and mindfulness. I will work with you to create a treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.
It takes courage to seek for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.
I look forward to working with you!
