Seeking Help?

The decision to seek help for a problem is often a difficult one. Concerns may have been building over time or a crisis may have occurred which is affecting you or your family. Making the initial call to a counselor is a critical first step toward resolving the problem.

Choosing the right therapist is equally critical and consideration should be given to the therapist's education and training, maturity, empathy and compassion, and level of experience with your particular circumstance.

The practice of Covington & Hafkin and Associates is dedicated to helping people understand and resolve their problems. Our therapists are experienced in dealing with a broad range of mental health issues and use a variety of therapeutic approaches to help develop coping strategies to fit individual situations. We provide guidance through the exploration of values, beliefs, and feelings to help promote an increased self awareness and a greater sense of well-being.

Give us a call at 301-279-9030 or 301-951-9002, or email
