Mr. Ashton Morgan, MBA, MAMFT, LCMFT (Executive Director)
I am a MD Board of Professional Counselors and Therapist Approved Supervisor. I am completing my Doctoral degree in Marriage and Family Therapy and enjoy working with clients who have a broad spectrum of relationship problems. My areas of expertise are infidelity, divorce, separation, addictions, children with behavioral issues, and men's issues. I am an interactive, solution-focused therapist. My therapeutic approach is to provide support and practical feedback to help clients effectively address personal life challenges. I offer a highly personalized approach, tailored to each client with complementary methodologies and techniques. With compassion and understanding, my approach to therapy is to focus on solutions to the problems that affect us all. It is my belief that meaningful change comes from deep within; it is not something that can be imposed by me as the therapist, nor are you expected to do it alone.

In my career, I have provided an array of therapeutic interventions to adults and adolescents ages 13-17, in outpatient mental health clinics, schools, and home settings. I have experience with mood disorders, anxiety, crisis intervention, trauma and PTSD, anger management, ADHD, bipolar disorder, relationship struggles, family conflict and much more. I use an eclectic combination of therapies to meet the individual needs of my clients. I focus on providing a safe and therapeutic space, which allows clients to explore their inner strengths, to propel them towards their self-directed path.
Ms. Miesha Rice, MSW, LCSW-C (Mental Health Clinician)
My therapeutic approach is holistic. Whereas I am firmly grounded in theoretical approaches, and evidence-based practices, I also believe that sometimes individuals and families benefit greatly from having an un-biased, non-judgmental sounding board; someone who can encourage focus on strengths, and looking at the glass as half full vs. half empty. I am passionate about my work, and I love to instill hope back into my clients, as well as guide them back to a state of homeostasis. I specialize in Family Therapy and Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. I have a wealth of experience working with children in the Baltimore, Howard, and Anne Arundel Public School Systems. I also work with adolescent, adult female and male victims of domestic violence, and those needing services to satisfy requirements of community, social service, and court-ordered programs. In addition, I have received training from the Red Cross to provide services to Military families. I am also very skilled in providing trauma informed care, crisis intervention, working with victims and witnesses of crime, and providing grief and bereavement services to survivors of homicide. My motto is that "All things are possible...".
Mrs. Lesly Ogungbemi MSW, LCSW-C (Clinical Director)
I have over 35 years of experience in providing mental health services in a wide range of public and private settings. I am a MD Board Approved Supervisor. I have experience in working with children in residential care settings, working with victims of child abuse and neglect, providing crisis services with the American Red Cross. I have also taught social work classes as an adjunct professor at Coppin State University in Baltimore, MD. and at Dundalk Community College. I approach each therapeutic relationship from a strength based perspective, using an array of therapeutic interventions such as family systems therapy, cognitive behavioral, insight oriented, rational emotive solutions focused therapy and many other modalities. Using a holistic approach, that recognizes the many facets of the individual: mind, body and spirit, I believe that with support, everyone can maximize their individual strengths.
Dr. Cassandra Clarke-Williams, LCPC (Mental Health Clinician)
As a teenager, I knew that I wanted to be a counselor. I have over 16 years of experience working with children, adolescents, and their families in the public school system. My journey started as a special educator and then as a school counselor. In addition, my love for education led me to teach on the collegiate level for Johns Hopkins University, Stevenson University, and Capella University. I have over five years of experience working in the mental health profession treating individuals, couples, adolescents and families.
I believe all people deserve the opportunity to reach their most significant potential. With this in mind, my approach to therapy will help clients to identify what is keeping them from having the happiness, success, and relationships that they truly want. I am certified in Strategic Intervention through the Tony Robbins and Chloe Madanes Center. In addition, I employ various strategies and techniques such as Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, REBT, Solution Focused Therapy and other modalities as needed. I provide a warm and non-judgmental therapeutic environment where clients are free to be themselves. I look forward to assisting you with your counseling needs.

Mrs. Brenda Yuen, MS, LGPC (Mental Health Clinician)
I am a graduate of Johns Hopkins University, with a Master of Science in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. I am passionate about helping traumatized clients begin their healing and promote their recovery process, while creating a safe and accepting therapeutic relationship. My involvement with the Adverse Childhood Experiences Study has reinforced a belief that trauma is passed down through inter-generational transmission. Educating traumatized clients and empowering them to understand how they can stop that transmission going forward is a goal I will continue to work towards. Recovery and prevention are key elements of my work with clients. I am especially interested in the field of traumatized survivors of interpersonal violence. I approach every client through a trauma-informed lens and, because each client is unique, I prefer to take an integrative approach for every client. I practice under the clinical supervision of a MD board approved Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapy Supervisor.
