Lisa M. Ford

For several years before starting a private practice, I worked as a clinician at community-based mental health clinics, nonprofit and private practice groups in Maryland, DC, and Pennsylvania. 


As a clinical social worker, I am passionate about helping children, adults, couples, families, and immigrants in healing and improving their quality of life. 


My expertise focuses on facilitating a therapeutic process that creates harmony between one's mind, body, and soul.  

 My treatment approach integrates a broad range of interventions

influenced by evidence and trauma-based theories, cognitive behavioral, humanistic-existential, and alternative therapies.   

My clinical interests and areas of expertise include trauma recovery, health and self-care, mood and anxiety disorders, grief and loss, DID, domestic and sexual violence, parent training, LGBTQ, and cultural and feminist intersectionality.


My style is empathic and non-judgmental.  I tailor treatment to meet each individual's unique goals and desires. Choose your goals, we will work together to determine the roadmap to healing, harmony, and wellness.
