I am a licensed clinical mental health counselor in Maryland with over 13 years of experience working in the behavioral health field. I have worked with clients with a wide range of ages and concerns including trauma, depression, anxiety, relationship issues, mood disorders, and ADHD.
My counseling style is collaborative and client-centered. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion. My biopsychosocial approach to counseling combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, psychodynamic and rational-emotive counseling. I will tailor our dialog and 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!

Lonetta Mason actually listens and responds. She's empathetic and sympathetic -- without judging. She has plenty of very real experiences in her young life to truly understand what's going on. If "homework" is your thing, she can definitely accommodate you. If not -- she fine with that too. If you get Lonetta as your therapist, you are on your way to finding answers. It won't be quick or cookie-cutter -- but it will involve some hard looks at your life, with lasting results. It's a big step -- but please know you are doing the right thing.

Lonetta has been great in helping me organize my thoughts and figure out what important steps I need to take for my personal growth and wellbeing. She gets straight to the point and doesn’t beat around the bush which I love.

I have only had one session with Lonetta so far but she has felt like the best fit for me as a therapist! It felt more like talking to a friend than a therapist really. I felt so comfortable after just one session. I like her therapy style - I felt that she was really listening to me and letting me air my concerns and then would give her opinion/provide solutions but in a way that felt more genuine rather than so clinical. Also she was very flexible with me and we've now set up a weekly session which I really appreciate. I look forward to continuing working with Lonetta!

So far working with Lonetta has been very good so far. Within the first 10 minutes of our first session I knew I found the right person. I'm very grateful that I was assigned to her.
