Our Philosophy

New Hope Counseling Group is a telehealth-based practice providing services to clients in Maryland and the District of Columbia. We are a group of diverse licensed therapists who take great pride in providing a safe and comfortable space to explore a range of challenges with each client we work with.

Therapy can be a process of growth and self-discovery, and in our practice, we aim to promote transformation by equipping you with the tools and skills needed to reach your optimal wellbeing, as well as the space for you to process your experiences.

 We are here to guide you as you enhance your own understanding of yourself and your journey through life, promote discovery towards healing from past experiences and improving the ways you cope with new stressors, and ultimately empower you to navigate many of life’s challenges you may face.

Meet the Team

Dedication. Passion. Commitment.

Our group of therapists is composed of diverse individuals who are dedicated to helping others improve their mental well-being. All clinicians in our group are trauma-informed, with several having specialized trauma training. 

Please be attentive to where each therapist is licensed and able to see clients. In addition to services in English, we have clinicians who are able to provide services in Spanish, Mandarin, and Urdu/Hindi. 

We have additional therapists joining soon! For more information about their experience and specializations please contact us.
