Our Philosophy

We understand that there are many things in life that influence us and take a toll on our emotional well-being. We believe that with effective support, guidance and understanding, people have the ability to not only find the answers to their problems, but the strength to make positive changes in their lives.

Expressive Therapy Center offers a family-focused and individualized approach that is unique to each client and his or her family's needs. We consider the relationship between our therapists and our clients to be of the utmost importance in providing successful therapy and we strive to match our clients to the therapist who will best suit them.

Our therapists come from a variety of backgrounds, bringing their own distinctive experiences, strengths and specialties and utilizing a range of therapies, including art, play, movement and traditional talk therapy.

Our Process

expressive_therapy_centerWe prioritize the initial discovery phase to ensure that we meet your needs. You can expect to speak with our Director, Stephanie Natter, M.A. ATR-BC CGP, or a skilled clinician, who will take the time to gain a full understanding of the challenges facing you or your family before you commit your time and resources. You will then be carefully assigned to a therapist whose clinical background matches your therapeutic needs.

An initial assessment will take place with your clinician. During that meeting, your therapist will gather additional background information, relevant history, and get to know you and/or your family member. We will then move forward to collaboratively develop an individualized treatment plan that works for you. We are a consortium of Psychologists, Social Workers, Counselors, and expressive therapists. In some cases, you and/or your family member may work with more than one clinician to address various concerns.

*although we are not currently paneled with any one insurance company, most insurers will cover a portion of our fees assuming you have out-of-network benefits. In addition, check with us regarding other affordability options if no benefits exist.

ETC does not follow the MCPS policy on snow closings and holidays.  Please check with your clinician as to whether sessions will be held as scheduled.
