More about me

Licensing: LICSW, LCSW-C

State: MD


Are you ready for a change? Are you ready to live your best life? It takes courage to seek help for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. It’s not always easy to ask for help but the good thing is you do not have to do it alone. I’m here to help you get from where you currently are to where you want to be.

I am a Clinical Psychologist and licensed Clinical Social Worker in Maryland and the District of Columbia (LICSW, LCSW-C) with over 25 years of experience working in executive behavioral health positions while conducting psychotherapy in my private practice. I have worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, dually diagnosed, and career challenges. I also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is warm and interactive. I believe in treating everyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I offer a space where you can be your true and authentic self. My integrated approach combines cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused, psychodynamic, motivational-interviewing, person-centered, mindfulness and trauma-focused therapy. As no two people are the same, I will tailor our dialog and your treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

Remember,” nothing changes if Nothing Changes”

I look forward to working with you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $60 to $90 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Dr. Colvin has been fantastic and helped me through difficult moments. Cannot recommended her enough!

Sep 26, 2022


From the beginning Dr.Colvin has been very helpful, understanding, sympathetic and has made me feel like I was truly being heard. Every session I left feeling better and a lot lighter. I would definitely recommend Dr.C to my friends and anyone who is seeking help and wants to feel welcomed. Every session I felt like I could say what was on my mind without being judged. I am thankful for Dr.C and I wouldn’t be in a happier place mentally and emotionally without her help

Dr. Colvin has gotten me through the worst 6 months of my adult life. I feel like I’m coming out a far better person than I was going in. She helped me through deep grief, stress, anger, and frustration, and she did so with empathy, a little tough love, and humor. She is the very best. I can’t say enough about how much I have appreciated her support. The. Best.

Dr. Colvin was amazing. She is incredibly supportive, and is an amazing listener. No matter what the situation is, Dr. Colvin has a keen ability to navigate the conversation to a very realistic side of things. She gives incredible advice, and offers alternatives/next steps to the situations you are dealing with. After just a few sessions with Dr. Colvin, I feel much better about the situations I was/am dealing with thanks to her guidance. Thank you Dr. C!

Dr. Colvin helped me achieve personal goals in such a short amount of time that I felt were unattainable. She helped me grow my confidence and showed me how to manage my anxiety. She also helped me discover ways to encourage healthier habits within my relationship which have helped dramatically. I have nothing but good things to say, she’s truly incredible and a professional at what she does. Thank you Dr. C!!

A.L.·Jun 18, 2021


Dr. C is very warm, caring, laid back, and non-judgmental. She is a good listener, and, unlike some therapists I have known, she is willing to share experiences from her own life, which makes me feel like she relates well to me and adds a new perspective when I am working through something. I would highly recommend her!

M.A.·Jun 11, 2021


Dr C has been great to talk to and has helped me manage my anxiety and what to do when I’m in a negative state of mind. I would highly recommend speaking with her for anyone looking for therapy and bettering their everyday life.

D.E.·Jun 02, 2021


Dr. C is an incredible resource to those that she serves. She has a warm, relaxed, and welcoming manner and truly made me feel like I was in a "safe space" to discuss and share my issues and needs. She listens attentively and provides affirming feedback that made me feel heard but also challenged me in the ways necessary for me to grow. I feel so empowered with the tools she has provided me with!

M.E.·May 24, 2021

M.O.·Apr 28, 2021


Dr. C is kind and straight to the point. She inspires me to get out of my comfort zone while gently nudging me in the right direction. Her ideas and perspective is why I don’t ever see myself choosing another therapist on BetterHelp.

H.A.·Apr 25, 2021


Dr. Colvin is a blessing to whomever she helps. I had various issues that I presented to her. She helped me lay out my goals, and helped me achieve them. She is a pleasure to talk to, and she will be real with you. She will call you out on your nonsense whilst also helping you and supporting you. Dr. Colvin has definitely helped me grow as a person, and I will be forever thankful. After only a few weeks I’ve definitely felt much happier, mentally healthier, and way more positive. Dr. Colvin has 100% had a hugely positive impact in my life.

I have gotten at least two to three friends to sign up for counseling just by talking about the fact that I'm doing Better Help and having a good experience.

M.I.·Mar 31, 2021

D.E.·Jan 19, 2021


I've had two sessions with Dr Colvin and shes already helped me, tremendously. Her responses in regards to what I was going through, were very helpful, and although simple - it was exactly what I needed to hear.

P.A.·Nov 29, 2020


Dr. Colvin is perfect for someone who feels stuck and trapped by their current mental health situation, who couldn't see a spark of hope in the darkness of it all. She will push you so hard to change when you don't even think it's possible. Providing practical skills, timely responses, and honesty as sobering as winter morning air, she will act as the best guidance while you make the changes you had always wanted, dreamt about.

A.N.·Nov 19, 2020


Dr. Colvin is caring, dedicated and knowledgeable. I felt comfortable with her from day one and remained impressed by her commitment. In a very short time she understood my needs, and what would be the best approach to help me tackle my issues. I feel lucky to have found Dr. Colvin and truly recommend her.

B.R.·Oct 13, 2020


Dr Colvin is a highly skilled and experienced therapist and counselor. I remain impressed in her dedication and also her ability to help hone in on how I’m feeling, and then develop strategies to manage it. Would highly recommend.
