Divorce, grief, school and workplace difficulties, gender identity, parenting challenges, child trauma, depression, anxiety, stress, phobias, and illness – life can be tough.

Located in the Shady Grove Professional Building in Gaithersburg, Md., our diverse and experienced therapists create a warm and welcoming environment for you and all members of your immediate or extended family.

Our services are age-appropriate and culturally sensitive to meet the needs of our diverse community.

Our Counseling Services

We offer individual, couples, family, and group therapy to help you cope with life’s challenges. We serve people throughout their lifespan, working with people from birth through older adulthood. 

Outside of the office we provide Community-Based Programs to help many under resourced people within our community access the mental health care they need.

Make an Appointment

You can call Aspire Counseling at Sheppard Pratt at 301-978-9750 to schedule an appointment with our Intake Coordinator. The Intake Coordinator will conduct an over the phone intake questionnaire to assess your needs and availability and to identify the therapist who is a match. 

Please note: Clients sometimes email Aspire Counseling using networks including but not limited to Gmail, Comcast, Verizon, or Hotmail. Email sent through these “open access” networks is often not encrypted to protect privacy. When email is not encrypted, it is possible that someone else may access and read it. Aspire Counseling’s policy is to reply to clients’ emails sent from open access networks unless a client explicitly says not to do so.

Insurance Information

We accept many insurance carriers and can help you with your insurance claims and have alternative payment options if you do not have insurance. See more.
