First Visit

Welcome to our ACIDD for Counseling center. If you are here for the first time, our staff is available to assist you to make you feel at home. All services are confidential.
We offer initial consultation without an appointment for walk-in visitors seeking counseling or psychological services for the first time. Or, make an appointment with one of our therapists by calling us at 301-498-1550. Visit us any time between 9:00 am – 7:00 pm Monday-Friday to make an appointment, if you choose to do so.

From a brief evaluation upon your visit, the therapist and you determine what the next best steps for you will be.
This could include

  • Referral to a specific service which would promote balance and thriving
  • Brief individual psychotherapy with a Licensed therapist after Intake and assessment.
  • Extended individual psychotherapy after initial encounter.
  • Group psychotherapy within
  • Couples therapy
  • Family Therapy

We strive to help the visitor re-balance her/him to continue developing skills to maintain a balanced life in the context of greater social context.

Visitors will typically come in on their own except for children with their parents or guardian . But, it is not unusual for a concerned friend, or family member to encourage the visitor to contact the Center and even accompany you to the first appointment if this would enable you to come to the center. Talking to a Center therapist is a mature step to take your overall health, well being, and success at their best.
