Kathleen Lowry, LPC, LMFT

Most times, clients need a therapist who listens deeply and helps them find sort through their challenges.  I do this, without bias.  You come to me so that you can voice your concerns without judgement, and to find a professional who has perspective. I will encourage you, support you with information and resources, and if you like, tell you what I think based on my many years of experience working with other individuals and couples.    

I have worked in the field for 18 years.  I know how to be direct and still be tactful and encouraging.  I won’t mess around and burn up your time.   Whether you are anxious, depressed, struggling with difficult circumstances, or just not feeling ok and not knowing why, I’ve had good success helping clients in the past with similar struggles. I am trained in traditional as well as the most current, evidence-based therapies, so together we can figure out what works best for you.

After many years of seeing 100s of individuals and couples, I’ve come to very much agree with Dr. Margaret Paul’s statement, “Abandonment and self-abandonment are the most frequent cause of unhappiness.”

Should we work together, I might ask you,  “Have you any hard or frightening experiences where you were too much on your own?  “To what extent have you abandoned yourself in recent years?” “In what ways have you pushed your own desires, needs, wants, and values aside thinking that doing this is what is necessary, or because it will make others, and therefore yourself, happy?" 

We’re going to work hard together at helping you find yourself again, to trust and love yourself again, and take really good care of yourself. We will increase those moments of joy for you that we all need to get through hard times.  I treasure doing this work, because watching hearts and minds heal is both an honor and a joy in my life.

My Masters in Counseling Psychology was completed at Bethel University.  I provide counseling both online, through our secure account, on the phone, or in person.  My work has included clinical supervision of trainees, and I also served as an adjunct faculty member at Adler University in Minneapolis.  A combination of Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, somatic therapy, and inner parts therapy form the basis of the work I do with clients to address anxiety, depression, PTSD, early childhood adverse experiences, transitions including career, aging and loss, and anger management.

Rashida Riley Anderson, LCSW

Philosophy of Care

I am licensed in Maryland and Virginia as a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C and LCSW, respectively). I have been a social worker since 2008. I obtained my undergraduate degree in Social Work from Frostburg State University in 2008. I graduated from The University of Maryland, Baltimore with a Masters in Social Work in 2010. I have worked in the treatment foster care, a community-based adolescent psychiatric rehabilitation program, adult residential treatment program, an outpatient mental health clinic, private practice, as well as a non-profit commercial insurance company.

My primary therapy orientation is client-centered. I believe a strong therapeutic relationship is essential for client growth. I understand that every individual is not an illness or label, rather a person with multiple contributing factors which attribute to one’s reason for seeking help. For this reason, I use an eclectic approach to treatment based on one’s needs. Those treatment approaches include: CBT, Crisis Intervention, Mindfulness, Functional Family Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Psychoeducation, and Solution-Focused Therapy.

I have experience working with individuals, couples, and families – adolescents and adults suffering from depression/mood disorders, anxiety, trauma/abuse, addiction and substance use, divorce, infidelity, family conflict, relationship issues, suicidal ideations, and grief. Additionally, I have done work with clients involving career path, self-esteem/self-confidence, coping skills, life-transitions, and everyday issues. I also address multi-cultural concerns, issues with prejudices, diversity and inclusion, and LGBTQI related concerns.

Through my work with youth, I have performed Function Family Therapy to address the why and how to assist the youth and his/her family with addressing concerns and finding solutions to remedy those problems. In working with individuals, I have used CBT to address maladaptive thought patterns and finding ways to adjust those thoughts to produce positive change. In couple’s counseling, solution focused therapy has helped the couple identify the problem and partner together to arrive at and exercise the solutions to address their issues. 

My passion lies in assisting individuals and couple’s to find their inner voice and channel it in a healthy way so they can begin to lead the lives they’ve always hoped for.

Toni Davis, LPC, NCC

Toni Davis is a Licensed Professional Counselor who is nationally certified. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree from the University of Virginia and her Master’s Degree in Counseling from Johns Hopkins University.

“At some point in our lives, we all experience problems we just can’t handle on our own. Sometimes psychological issues such as anxiety and depression can be an underlying cause of physical ailments. Whether you are experiencing relationship issues, job stress, loss of job, home or loved one, a general sense of discontent or lack of connection, or have had trauma in your life, it’s okay to ask for help. In fact, asking for help is a sign of strength not weakness. First, I will listen to you with empathy and without judgment. Then, I will help you fully explore what’s causing you trouble and develop a plan for improving your life.”

Toni has experience treating adults of all ages and couples primarily using cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, and person-centered therapy. She is also trained in EMDR Therapy, which is used to treat trauma, and has training in the Gottman Method for couples.

Toni is a native of Virginia who is very happy to be back in the Old Dominion after six years in Ohio! In her free time, she enjoys cooking, exercise, yoga, reading, and spending time with her family and two dogs.

I began working with the serious mentally ill criminally involved individuals with an in home treatment model designed to assist in recovery.
