Welcome to my practice.
I am so glad you are here. My name is Michaelyn Woofter and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Maryland. I have been supporting families, children, teens, and adults, through life’s challenges for over 20 years.
I have dedicated my practice to helping tweens, teens, and adults navigate anxiety, ADHD, learning differences and executive function struggles. I am passionate about supporting new moms who are struggling with Postpartum Anxiety and Depression while adjusting to their new life roles. I offer Positive Parenting support and education to parents of children at all ages and stages of development. My practice is also committed to helping college students with the academic, social and emotional transition to university life.
I have been in the field of social work since 1989 when I received a Bachelor of Arts in Justice from The American University. In 1994, I earned my Master of Social Work degree from The Catholic University of America.
My life experience and professional background have led me to be trauma informed and see things from an attachment point of view. I am well versed in crisis management. As a clinical social worker, I come from a strengths based perspective and incorporate elements of mindfulness, physical activity and cognitive behavioral therapy in my work with clients. I am holistic in my approach and solution focused. Together, we will develop new strategies, and implement coping skills. We will collaborate to achieve your life goals and vision.
Life is about relationships and connections with family, friends, community and yourself. Connect with me today and start your journey to thriving instead of surviving.
My practice is conveniently located in suburban Maryland where I offer in person, and online, sessions to individuals, families, and groups throughout the state.
I am here to be your partner on the path to well being.
