Philicia Ross, LMSW

As a therapist, I teach and support individuals-children, adolescents, teens and adults to un-anchor from unhealthy patterns and thrive. They create stronger bonds with themselves and their
environments. I look at the dynamics of the trauma and help navigate the murkiness so that the steps forward are more transparent through an integrative and eclectic approach. These approaches consist
of EMDR, CBT, DBT, psychodynamic, and narrative therapeutic approaches. I am a voracious learner so adding new modalities to my toolbox is always at the forefront of my mind. Empowering others to take
the essential steps can lead to incredible and powerful results.

 

I work from a person-centered and relational approach. I note how relationships, especially those you have with yourself, affect how you move in your world. I also utilize a trauma-informed perspective to
recognize how things of the past may inform you in the present. Lastly, I work from a culturally competent stance, where I acknowledge the whole of your identity, and it’s intersectionality. What has been done to you and the systems that have added to that are important to unpack. The best impact I can make? Is for any of my clients to feel they can take up space as they want to and to walk through their life in total wellness.

In 2015, I graduated from Washington Adventist University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Counseling Psychology, then went on to graduate from Simmons Universities Masters of Clinical Social Work Program in 2019. Within that time, I served homeless youth, individuals in intensive outpatient settings, and adults in crisis centers. I provide clinical diagnosis, treatment and assessment under clinical supervision to ensure my clients receive the appropriate level of care. I am licensed by both the Maryland Virginia Board of Social Workers to provide mental health diagnosis, assessment and treatment under supervision.
