Dr. Bhavani R. Hamann, Ph.D., MPSW, MMPSW, Social Work Supervisee

“I have over eight years of experience working with families dealing with mental health, medical, and substance abuse-related issues. I specialize in working with individuals, adolescents, and families in conflict. I am committed to working with clients with depression, anxiety, trauma, and relationship issues. I deeply believe that individuals and families have the intrinsic strength and skills to overcome their difficulties.

Ms. Heather Gilley, ME.d., Resident in Counseling

“We do not see things as they are, we see them- as we are.” Penned by Anais Ninn, this quote beautifully illustrates that our perspective, which is affected by our life experiences, greatly influences how we view our world. I love guiding clients to focus their mental lens on their sources of strength instead of their weeds of worry. “What we focus on grows,” penned Faustine Judd, and I couldn’t agree more. Let’s pull weeds together and create a beautiful garden in your mind and heart. Contentment and satisfaction in life are the by-product of accomplishing goals, knowing your purpose, [...]

Nelva Hernandez, MSW, LCSW (Bilingual Therapist)

“I understand the importance and courage of seeking professional help when there’s such a stigma associated with mental health. I believe in utilizing evidence-based practices to help individuals cope with mental health challenges in a meaningful way. My interest in mental health counseling began as a young adult, I witnessed my community dealing with poverty, violence, and mental health issues. For this reason, I chose to study social work, so that I could help those in need and make a positive impact in my community. I worked in medical clinics, schools, and local government in DC and Northern Virginia. I [...]

Jaimon Jefferson, MSW, Social Work Supervisee

“I always knew that I wanted to help others; I just didn’t know in what capacity that would be. At the age of 14, when I started to grieve the loss of my mother, my mind shifted to the desire to assist others in similar situations who had huge emotions with no outlet. Navigating through life can be difficult, especially when trials and tribulations arise, but as your therapist, I will implement a collaborative approach to combat those roadblocks as efficiently as possible. I have over nine years experience in working with children using specifically play therapy and other therapeutic [...]

Kent Jensen, MSW, MPA, Social Work Supervisee

Theodore Roosevelt once said, “Far and away, the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” My father worked hard all his life and instilled that work ethic in me. During my career in the military, that work ethic served me well, but in my journey through life, I have discovered that one of the most important works worth doing is on ourselves. By doing that work, we can find peace and joy in life; we can show up as the best version of ourselves and enrich the lives of those [...]

Shevy Kana, MA, LPC

“The philosophy that guides my work with clients is a strong core belief in respect for each person’s unique culture and heritage. When I work with clients it is important for me to understand their worldview. There are no cookie cutter therapeutic interventions that work universally on all clients with the exception of the development of strong therapeutic relationship between client and therapist. I believe therapy needs to be meaningful, personal and tailored for each person. I promote clients having an active role in therapy, to include treatment planning and evaluation. I have extensive experience in working with young adults, [...]

“I’m a Board Certified Art Therapist who has been practicing art psychotherapy since 2013. My goal is to help you manage the challenges in your life and find healing from distress and trauma.

As a therapist I believe we all have an inherent ability to work through challenges in our lives. Sometimes our ability becomes overpowered by current stressors or past trauma, but we can learn to access our resilience and [...]
