Lissa Mantell, MSW, LCSW-C, LICSW, Clinical Social Work/Therapist in Silver Spring
It's time to help you connect to your best self. My goal is for you to feel heard, supported and able to look at your challenges and successes. I'm warm, kind and welcoming as a therapist. Together we'll create a safe space for you to look at where the problem(s) may lie, and come up with solutions that will work in your everyday life. Let's talk about how I can help you feel more satisfied and at peace in your life.
I specialize in working with adolescents and adults, and have expertise and a special interest in working with the LGBTQ community, including those who consider themselves transgender, genderqueer, gender non-conforming or questioning. Wherever you are on your journey, I will meet you there. Truly, all are welcome.
As your therapist, I consider myself a collaborator, and it is my priority to ensure that you are comfortable and an equal partner in our work together.
