Desyree Dixon, MSW, LCSW-C

Since opening the practice, I have empowered thousands of individuals and couples to overcome the personal obstacles necessary to improve themselves as well as their relationships. By tailoring the diagnostic plan to fit each client's unique needs and goals, I have equipped them with the skills, knowledge and tools necessary to achieve their best life.

I specialize in working with individuals and couples who are stuck and unable to make the changes they need to move their lives forward. The issues can manifest as anxiety, depression, stress, trauma, grief or loss.

I utilize various scientifically proven, highly effective therapeutic modalities including EMDR, BrainSpotting, Gottman Couples Relationship Therapy, Psychodynamic, and Solutions Focused Therapy. I also specialize in treating PTSD and vicarious trauma, which are especially acute among first responders (healthcare professionals, police officers, firefighters, EMTs, military personnel) and those who work with youth and at risk populations (teachers and other education professionals, social workers, nonprofit and government employees).

I received my undergraduate degree from Georgetown University and my graduate degree from University of Maryland. I received my training as a family trauma specialist from the John's Hopkins University School of Medicine affiliate Kennedy Krieger Institute. I am a regular contributor as a psychological consultant to our local tv stations as well as,

Baltimore Business Journal, TV One, WEAA radio, WFBR radio and, where I discuss various topics related to trauma, relationships, self esteem, depression and anxiety.  

Gretchen Tome, MSW, LCSW-C

My specialty is working with children, teens, young adults, and adults interested in an approach grounded in social and racial justice, using mindfulness, creativity, and mind-body connections to work through trauma, anxiety, and depression.

I have over 15 years of social work and therapy experience. 

I see therapy as essential to both our personal and collective healing and growth. Many of the mental health symptoms we struggle with are rooted in the impact of the unjust world around us. Giving ourselves time to reflect, heal, and grow is a form of resistance in a world that pushes us to stay busy, to disconnect from our inner experiences, and to face it all on our own. 

My goal is to offer a space where you feel seen, heard, and supported, wherever you are on your journey.

Coming to healing and wholeness is lifelong work, and therapy is one of many healing traditions that can help along the way. In therapy, we'll work together to set goals and create a map for the way forward that can include EMDR, talk therapy, writing, sand tray, art, movement, spirituality, and mindfulness. When working with children, I also use play therapy to tap into the natural ways that children express themselves. I look forward to meeting you and seeing if this is a good fit! Let’s walk together on the journey into a world where all of us thrive. 

Munazza Abraham, MA, PHD extern

As a clinician, I facilitate evidence-based treatments while also centering the client's personal and cultural preferences. Together, we co-create your healing experience. As a spoken word artist and poet, I also value creative expression. So, I welcome all clients in a safe space to uniquely express their struggles, triumphs, and worldview as we work towards wellness.

My previous clients have endured panic attacks, depression, anxiety, chronic pain illness, interpersonal relationship violence, and post-traumatic stress disorder. As their clinician, I utilized positive humanistic approaches, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Cognitive Processing manualized therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Acceptance Commitment Therapy techniques, along with affirmations and mindfulness.

Using these techniques, I have supported clients through their symptoms as well as provided practical tools and exercises to allow clients to safely explore their identities and values, build healthier social supports, address and improve family dynamics, and cope with life transitions.

Jabarey Wells, BA, PHD extern

As a clinician, I am interested in how the role of culture, identity, and oppression in mental health impacts clients, especially those from marginalized communities. I am passionate about social justice, particularly racial equity.  I commonly utilize mindfulness, CBT, and DBT in my clinical practice.

I am currently a third year PHD student in the Human Services Psychology program at University of Maryland Baltimore County, focusing on clinical and community psychology. I am a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Scholar.  I am also a graduate from Morehouse College with a B.A. in psychology.
