Amy L Hooper, LCSW-C, CEAP in Gaithersburg
Is your mind spinning with worries and endless "to-do" lists? Are you critical of yourself and you never feel good enough? If you have lost touch with who you really are or what you really want out of life, counseling can help you find yourself. If you are someone who usually takes care of everyone else, let me help you start taking care of yourself as well. My clients are regular, everyday women who struggle with life's overwhelming issues: anxiety, depression, relationship issues, low self esteem, difficulty being assertive, past trauma, insecurities, people pleasing and difficult life transitions.
If you feel like your emotions are running your life, or you feel stuck, we can work on taking back the control of yourself and your life. My passion is helping women find their voice while finding themselves. While working together, counseling will be tailored to meet your specific needs.
If you are unhappy and you are ready to make a change, I want to help you find your true, fulfilled self. If you are tired of all the stress and worry, and you want to feel better, call today: 240-274-5680 or email me directly:

Women are precious, unique beings and should be treated as such. Women's issues are common, complicated and can be eased through education and self-exploration. The focus of this group is on identifying women's needs and how to meet those needs using their inner strengths. We will explore many women's issues such as self esteem, guilt, a woman's worth, body image, women's roles, trust, trauma, getting the love you want and self care.
