So you’re looking for a therapist for yourself or a loved one. You’ve come to the right place.

If you’ve found your way to this page you’re probably being very thorough in your search process. Good for you. It’s an important decision that you’d like to get right on the first try. Information is critical at this point and the more the better.

With that in mind, we have created this space to assist you in your research. We’ve begun a process of “crowdsourcing” feedback from our current and former clients to create a bank of information about our office, staff, and most importantly our clinicians.  In addition, when we find sources of information about Kentlands Psychotherapy on the internet we will share it with you on this page.

So we welcome you to come back for updates and to see how this resource grows. And perhaps at some point if you settle on one of our clinicians, you can “pay it forward” by offering your own feedback to help the next person who, like you, is looking for that “just right” therapist for themselves.

Qualitative Reports

On Nicole Beane, LCSW-C:

“Nicole Beane saved my family!  We first lucked into her when our daughter was going through school refusal in eighth grade. I love how she works with both the child and the parents. My husband and I really appreciate being able to work with Nicole on the best parenting strategies. Although she is technically our daughter’s therapist, I feel that I grew as a parent by leaps and bounds with her help.

We have been with her for over four years. Over that time, she has really grasped the essence of who our daughter is, and has both clued us into what to be on the alert for, as well as reassured us about her future.  She accurately diagnosed severe social anxiety and then ADHD and put us on the right path for help.

Our senior will be attending college in the area, and we are so glad that she will not have to find another therapist.  We owe so much to Nicole for getting us to this point.

Bonus:  Kentlands Psychotherapy occupies a lovely and calming space in the Kentlands.”

“Ms Beane has been a tremendous help to our family, my daughter sees her frequently and helps her in making big decisions”

“Nicole Beane at Kentlands Psychotherapy is amazing. I highly recommend her! She is warm and inviting which makes it easy for honest and real therapy to occur. Her calm and reassuring demeanor makes discussing difficult or stressful situations/topics easier. She is a consummate professional.”

“I live in the Kentlands and every week for the past two years I walk over to a therapy session with the lovely Nicole Beane. The location could not be more convenient, quiet and safe. I have had therapists in the past, but truly none as caring or devoted as Nicole. She’s not only a calming presence, but finds a way to connect and improve the most complicated and sensitive parts of you. Kentlands hidden gem!!!”

“Nicole Beane is great with my son. He is 12. We have been seeing her since he was in Kindergarten. The atmosphere is very nice.”

“We’ve worked with Nicole Beane, LCSW for several years. She was a major source of support and guidance through some difficult events. I highly recommend her for young people facing normal challenges of growing up, family crisis, depression anxiety and more. She’s kind, empathetic and professional!”

 

On Gail Groboski, LCSW-C:

“This place is fantastic!!! We have been seeing Ms. Grabowski for the past year and she is just super professional and “gets” my daughter to a T.  The place is VERY clean and calming.  There’s a coffee/keurig, biscotti and a fireplace going (almost like a spa).  it is VERY confidential and tons of reading helpful material.  Appointments are always on-time and informational to both my daughter and me.  I can’t ask for anything more.”
