Nadia Maghsadi


About Me

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 where I studied human development, and completed my Master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at Johns Hopkins University.

I have had extensive mental health experience in settings ranging from inpatient hospital care for girls, detention centers for juvenile boys, outpatient substance abuse treatment for adults, domestic violence intervention programs for couples, and as a phone counselor for the National Suicide Lifeline. In addition to providing individual therapy, I have years of experience conducting open process group therapy for children, adolescents and adults, as well as psychoeducational groups teaching life skills to manage mental health concerns. 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 love my job as a therapist. I am honored when a client chooses to trust me with their hopes and challenges so that we can work together on a more positive and fulfilling life. 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 Iranian-American and the child of 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 in love with the practice. In addition to teaching classes I am happy to offer my individual clients breathing and mindfulness techniques to manage stress and become more grounded if ever they are interested.

I am excited about the opportunity to connect through BetterHelp because I understand that life can be overwhelming and sometimes the idea of making it to an appointment just adds more to our plate. Or, maybe you’ve found therapy in person to be intimidating and you seek the privacy of online counseling. With BetterHelp, therapy can be on your terms and schedule while accommodating all the other responsibilities you have in your life. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any questions for me or would like to set up a meeting!

Nadia is an incredible therapist and I don’t know where I’d be without her.
