Kathy Moran, LCSW-C
Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Life is full of difficulties and happiness may feel out of reach. There’s a lot going on in the world that is anxiety and stress inducing. The general day to day worries of balancing work and life can weigh on our mind. Sometimes we just need someone to confide in for emotional support and to help us find new ways of coping, managing stress, and dealing with life’s challenges. I believe a happy life consists of being connected to others, having a sense of purpose and meaning, practicing self-care, and discovering gratitude and joy in our daily lives.
An integral part of our well-being and health is caring for our mind, body, and soul. I believe in a wholistic collaborative solution focused and strength-based approach to therapy tailored to your individual concerns, beliefs, and values.
You are the expert on yourself and have the ability to utilize your inner strengths and resources to help you navigate life’s challenges. My clients have described me as warm, compassionate, practical, and non-judgmental. I have a passion for helping adults and seniors who are experiencing anxiety, depression, life transitions, grief, relationship/family conflict, women’s issues, caregiver’s stress, and chronic illness.
For over 30 years, I have practiced as a licensed clinical social worker in multiple settings with a diverse population, including children, adults, adolescents, families, and seniors, and have had decades of life experience. In the past 8 years, I served as a medical social worker at Johns Hopkins Community Physicians in Internal Medicine, OB-GYN, and Pediatrics. I live with my family, two dogs, a cat, and am a horse owner. I enjoy trail riding, nature, music, reading, and the arts. I am happy to talk with you further about whether therapy could be beneficial for you and to determine if I am the best fit for you as a therapist.
