Merve Saglam, MS, LCPC, Counselor in Rockville
I enjoy working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families to assist them in finding solutions to challenges in their lives, relieve their emotional distress and help them identify and modify personality traits/behavior patterns that are preventing them from living fulfilling lives.
My areas of expertise include; anxiety, mood disorders, grief/loss, self-esteem, life adjustment, transitions, and relationship issues. I also have a special interest in treating bariatric surgery patients; helping patients prepare mentally for the surgery and assisting them to cope with the challenges ahead while assisting them in developing new healthy habits post surgery.
I utilize an integrative approach to therapy drawing from various modalities including Cognitive-Behavioral (CBT), psychodynamic, existential and family systems theories. I value the therapeutic relationship as the most important agent of change and therefore strive to provide a safe and nonjudgmental environment for my clients.
