My name is Nadia Maghsadi and I am an LCPC from Baltimore, MD. I completed my undergraduate education at the University of Maryland, College Park and my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Johns Hopkins University. My mental health experience ranges from inpatient hospital care for girls, detention centers for juvenile boys, outpatient substance abuse treatment for adults, domestic violence intervention programs for couples, and the National Suicide Lifeline. I also have experience providing family therapy to navigate complicated family dynamics. I am a nationally certified counselor and hold additional certifications in treating trauma as well as problematic sexual behaviors.
I am a person-centered, humanistic therapist meaning that I am warm, genuine, empathetic, patient and will never judge. I am skilled at highlighting dysfunctional thoughts that might be causing painful emotions or behaviors that don’t support your goals. You can count on me to be honest while kind and unconditionally supportive throughout your journey in therapy. I am the child of Middle Eastern immigrants- whether my clients come from BIPOC backgrounds or not, I believe it’s important to examine where we come from in order to better understand where we’re going. I am also a yoga teacher happy to offer my individual clients breathing and mindfulness techniques.
