A’Lisa Andrade, LCPC

Does life seem harder for you than you think it should? Are you drained from giving and loving and caring for others? Do you find yourself unsatisfied in relationships and left wondering if happiness just isn't for you? Has alcohol or addiction put a stop to your progress and goals?  Has insomnia, agitation, depression or panic attacks kept you away from jobs, family or success?  Perhaps you seem to  almost 'make it' but then something sabotages your success.
I specialize in treating Complex Posttraumatic Stress Response and helping adolescents and adults recover from those hidden and invisible traumas of adverse childhood events.  I have a passionate burden to support those recovering from the trauma of narcissistic abuse.  The confusion of life is solvable and self-acceptance is possible.
I use a multifaceted approach to Soul Wellness including lifestyle, nutrition and meditation integrated with evidence-based clinical mental health practices to address trauma, anxiety, depression, relationship challenges and self-improvement.  Together, we work to remove the barriers to emotional freedom and fulfillment.

Mark Olivieri, LCPC, LMHC

One of the strong factors that influences how we feel about ourselves, others, or our situations—about life in general—is how close (or far away) we feel we are to the things we highly value in life. To get closer to living out those values, I work with my clients to build a personalized treatment plan for counseling around four types of essential questions:

  • What do I really want my life to look like (my values)?
  • What specific, measurable goals do I want to work toward to help me get there (my goals)?
  • Where do I start (my plan)?
  • How do I get there from here (my skills)?

Working as a team, we can put all those questions together, no matter what the issue is, toward finding the best answers that work for you in your personal situation according to your values and your goals. Within the safe and confidential space of a therapeutic relationship, we will explore those questions and answers, and use the foundation of your own strengths to begin building a plan for positive change. We will address the barriers that hinder your journey, and those things that may trigger unhelpful patterns of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors that actually work against having a more satisfying life.

I work with older children (approx. age 9 and up), adolescents, adults, couples, and families. It would be my privilege to join with you in finding and practicing more helpful ways and patterns of living for yourself to create more of the life you want to live.

Counseling areas: anxiety, depression, adjustment problems and disorders, ADHD, disruptive behaviors, relationships and communication, stress management, life direction, work-life balance, and Christian faith-based counseling.

Modalities used: Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Behavior Therapy/Behavior Modification, gradual exposure, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) skills, Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT), mindfulness and Positive Psychology practices, Motivational Interviewing, Client-Centered Counseling, Gestalt Empty-Chair technique, Parent Management Training for attentional problems and disruptive behaviors.

Licenses, degrees, and experience: Mark is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) in Maryland, as well as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC) in the state of Hawaii. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from California State University, Long Beach and a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Hawaii Pacific University. In Hawaii, he provided intensive in-home therapy for three years to children and adolescents, which included working together with the parents and families to foster a healthier environment for change and growing together. Mark was also a skills trainer for two years, successfully working in the classroom environment providing services to children with high-functioning autism and co-occurring ADHD and behavioral problems. Mark has a wealth of life experience gained in a large, multigenerational family, small business, community and faith-based volunteer work, multi-cultural traveling, team sports, and collaborating in music.
