Candace Washington, MSW, LMSW
"I'm inspired by growth, clarity, and insight. Seeing clients evolve into becoming the best version of themselves is rewarding. With the understanding that the client did the work in producing the change and making a decision to heal inspires me. It's truly a blessing and I thank God for allowing me to be a vessel to accompany others in their healing and growth journey."
Candace is trained and experienced in providing therapy to
adolescents and adults working through mental health concerns, including, but not limited to,
suicidality, depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, and loss. Candace also has experience in group
therapy, assisting clients in drug and alcohol treatment programs and transitional housing in
meeting their short and long-term goals to return to a place of equilibrium and safety.
Candace believes that every treatment plan should be unique to the needs and concerns of the
client. Therefore, she uses a collaborative approach when working with clients. She employs
various therapeutic techniques, including a cognitive-behavioral or solution-focused approach in
addressing distressing thoughts, emotions, and behavior while identifying skills and strengths in
helping clients reach their goals in life. Candace meets clients where they currently are in life
while unpacking past and current events to discover their core beliefs, thought processes,
decision making skills, and perspective towards self and the world.
Candace is a native of Alabama and Maryland. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Psychology
from Bowie State University and received a Master of Social Work from Howard University.
She looks forward to supporting you in your healing journey with compassion, patience, and
understanding because it's not easy to unpack life's traumas, stressors, and unpleasant events.
Still, Candace creates a sacred space for you giving room for healing to take place. In her spare
time, Candace enjoys spending time with family, writing, and traveling.
