Kelly McCabe, LCSW-C

As a therapist, I have worked with diverse populations and various age groups in the home, school, clinic and community settings. My area of expertise is working with children, adolescents and families to support them in healing, self discovery and growth. I am passionate about offering a supportive and non-judgmental space for young people to navigate mental health challenges related to Depression, Anxiety, PTSD, school or behavioral issues, family conflict, life transitions or low self esteem.

My experience as a therapist in community, school, and clinic settings, provides me with a unique and diverse skill set that I incorporate into my work with my clients. I am trained in clinical psycho-dynamic therapy and trauma informed approaches. In my practice, I integrate evidence-based approaches like Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Play Therapy, and Expressive Arts. Because of my undergraduate background in art, I love to incorporate art therapy interventions into therapy. I developed awareness into art based interventions through my volunteer work at Art With A Heart, a non profit with the mission to enhance the lives of young people in Baltimore. I am informed by various trauma informed trainings received at the Ferenz Institute in Baltimore, Maryland and utilize trauma-informed, Mind/Body centered approach when I work with clients who are experiencing PTSD related symptoms.

I work to provide a light-hearted, relationship focused and collaborative approach when working with individuals and families. Because I believe that each individual is unique, I work with my clients to develop a person centered and holistic treatment plan. We will work together to nurture resilience, to make positive changes and to develop growth and compassion.

I received my masters degree in clinical social work (LCSW-C) at New York University and my undergraduate degree in Painting and Sociology at Boston University.

I am a resident of Howard County, MD and enjoy spending my time outside with loved ones, with my German shepherd Lucie and in my garden.
