military-couplemilitaryAre you a military professional or spouse that needs to address a personal issue on your personal time?

Are you looking for a private civilian style private practice experience with someone who also understands military life? We might be the place for you.

Are you concerned that going to a medical or family support center on base just isn’t confidential enough for you? Or does it not have the sort of “feel” you are looking for?

Do you work in a medical facility and want to see someone who isn’t a colleague?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then perhaps you’ve wondered what other options are available to you. Maybe you’ve considered seeing a civilian therapist, but aren’t sure where to start or how to choose the right person for you. Maybe you would like to see someone who understands the unique challenges that you and your military family face.

Perhaps we can help

At Kentlands Psychotherapy we work with current and former military personnel and their loved ones from Maryland, Northern Virginia, and the District of Columbia who are looking for a private psychotherapy experience with a military savvy clinician.

Dr. Elizabeth Carr was an active duty Navy Psychologist for six years (1999-2005).  She has also been a military spouse since 2001.  She has lived and understands geographic separations, separations due to deployments, dealing with kids feelings about deployments, and  the stress and uncertain of pending or last minute changes in orders. She also understand why member might want a more private therapy experience if command intrusion, security clearance, fitness for duty, or addiction issues could be a factor.

As former active duty officer, hospital staff member, and current military spouses, I understand how truly difficult it can be to find a mental health counselor or therapist that you feel safe and comfortable with.

Give me a call, lets see if we are a “fit.”~ Dr. Elizabeth Carr 240-252-3349 ext. 801
