Amy Armstrong, LCSW-C One of the bravest actions a person can take is seeking therapy.  Finding a therapist you can trust to be a part of your journey can be life-changing, and I strive to make each therapeutic relationship a comfortable and trusting one.   I work with individuals and families, with a particular focus on adolescents and young adults.  I have experience working with clients struggling with depression, anxiety, substance abuse/addiction, grief and relationship issues.  I wholeheartedly believe that each person is more than a diagnosis and that everyone has the power to heal. Schedule is on a case by case basis.  Interested clients can email me at to discuss a schedule.  Please contact or (443) is preferrable

David Bell ,LCSW-C  I am a certified practitioner in a psychotherapy called Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy. It is a relational and mind-body approach to deep and lasting change by privileging positive emotional and change oriented experience over disorder and dysfunction. My approach is deeply empathetic and disarming, creating a profoundly safe and genuine space where my clients and I can be true human beings at the greatest depth possible. I work with teens sixteen years old and up to any age and I work with marriage and couples counseling. I specialize in transforming emotional experience and co-creating a new life narrative with PTSD, depression, substance abuse, and other anxiety, stress disorders, self-esteem, self-harm, and attachment disorders.

Sandra Nicht,     I am a member of the very first cohort at Maryland University of Integrative Health to earn a Master of Science in Yoga Therapy.  This rigorous degree program is a non-lineage based  evidence-informed outcome-oriented program that trains Yoga teachers of all backgrounds how to unite the scientific evidence supporting Yoga as Therapy with desired client outcomes of pain reduction, alleviation of stress, and maintenance of healthy body, mind, and soul.  This training acknowledges that diagnosis and treatment of disease conditions or physical injuries is in the scope of practice of licensed medical practitioners and not that of yoga therapists, however with the knowledge and recommendation of your medical practitioner I am  qualified to adapt the practices of yoga to help you manage your experiences with these conditions.  Contact Sandra if you need a referral to a licensed medical professional.
