Columbia, MD (PRWEB) November 30, 2012
Sarah Blake Psychotherapy, LLC is a therapy practice founded by Sarah Blake, LCSW in 2009. It originated in Elkridge Maryland as an Eating Disorder Practice, as Ms. Blake has over 17 years working with eating disorder patients, along with patients dealing with trauma, personality disorder, anxiety, stress, relationship issues, and a plethora of other issues. After 1.5 years in Elkridge, the practice moved to its present location in the Century Plaza office complex, off of Little Patuxent Parkway, in Columbia MD. The practice continued to thrive until Ms. Blake could no longer take any patients. "I hate to turn people away when they need help. I knew it was time to take a new risk," Sarah Blake stated about her decision to expand. In August of this year, after working with the excellent management of Michael P. Schnackenberg, RpA, CPM (Senior Property Manager) and Kris Broder (Director of Leasing) for BECO Management, Inc, a plan was formed to make the change easy... the suite was expanded to include the suite next door allowing for two new offices to be built.
Dr. Sharon Cannon, PhD was the first to be hired. She has over 20 years of experience working with a variety of patients. Her areas of interest include, but are not limited to eating disorders - Anorexia, Bulimia and Binge Eating Disorder; adolescents and young adulthood, navigation of life transitions, and working with individuals with the asperger's syndrome. Dr. Cannon, in reality, deals with so many different client issues, that they number too many to mention here. She is a truly fantastic, funny and creative therapist. Dr. Cannon's phone began to ring even before she was settled into her office.
Stacey Hillman, LCSW-C, was the second to come on board and brings much peace and tranquility to our space. She was working at the Kolmac clinic and running a small private practice. Stacey works often with adolescents in the following areas: depression , anxiety ,trauma , addictions & Self-harming behaviors. Stacey is such a kind, non-judgmental, soul, that it is almost impossible not to feel comfortable almost immediately after you meet her. As with Dr. Cannon, despite being with us less than a month, she is already getting calls and seeing new cases.
In addition to individual, couples and family therapy, Blake Psychotherapy & Associates will also be offering groups , another new addition. The first groups being offered are stress management groups, run by Stacey Hillman. The groups will be 6-7 people each and will be a combination of yoga, breath work, and guided imagery, specifically designed to decrease stress in the body and induce a conditioned "relaxation response" instead. With consistent practice, participants will feel less stressed overall on a regular basis. The groups will be held on Saturdays from 2pm - 3:15 pm. The 1st Saturday of the month will be the women's group and the 3rd Saturday will be for adolescent girls. Interested in the group? Contact Stacey at 410-206-8573.
