Desiree Ducharme, LCPC
Desiree Ducharme (she/her/hers) is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in the State of Maryland and a supervisor for counseling students at local graduate programs. She holds an Associates of Arts with a specialization in performing arts, a Bachelors of Science in Psychology and Post-Baccalaureate Certificate in Autism Studies from Towson University, and holds a Masters of Science in Applied Psychology and Certificate of Professional Counseling Studies from the University of Baltimore.
Desiree primarily treats adolescents and adults, with a focus on anxiety, depression, ADHD/Gifted/other neurodivergence, trauma and trauma-informed care, stress with life transitions and events, school- and peer-related issues, emotional regulation/distress tolerance, identity development and other issues often experienced during these stages of life. She works closely with individuals in the LGBTQ+ community. She also works with individuals with chronic medical issues (EDS, POTS, chronic pain and fatigue, etc.) in helping and providing support regarding the impact on their lives. As someone living with some of these issues, she is unique in her understanding of their impact and works to address them and help others in a compassionate, positive, and ‘neurodivergent-friendly’ way.
Outside of Desiree’s clinical and administrative work, she spends her time at home with her two cats, Rusty and Hazel. She is an avid reader and a lover of books, with her own personal library. She's also a self-described fangirl and loves all things K-pop, anime, Sci-fi/Fantasy, D&D, and cozy gaming. Sometimes, she even has pink hair. If she’s not engaging in any of the above, she’s planning her next place to travel abroad.
Tl;dr: Desiree is a neurodivergent therapist who specializes in working primarily with adolescents and adults, who are also often neurodivergent and/or LGBTQ+, and works from a compassionate and positive perspective to provide care and treatment. Oh, and she's a nerdy, book-loving cat lady.
