Lance has been counseling adults and teens for over sixteen years, the last twelve in the Annapolis area. He graduated from Reformed Theological Semniary in Orlando, Florida where he earned Master’s degrees in Counseling and Christian Thought. Lance has a relational approach to counseling, believing that pain can often be an opportunity for growth. His intuitive and sensitive nature serves him well to be an effective catalyst for change in his clients. His specialties include relationship issues, depression, sexual problems, addictions, couples/marriage counseling and grief counseling.

 

Married to Grace and a father of three girls, Lance enjoys spending time with his family and friends, reading, and playing and watching sports.


Grace David, M.A.

For Grace, being a counselor is who she is not just what she does professionally. She was drawn to counseling while still in high school when her friendships revealed she was a naturally good listener and gifted with intuition, compassion and the ability to empathize with others. She responded to this by pursuing a B.A. in Psychology at Wheaton College and continuing on to get her M.A. in Counseling from Reformed Theological Seminary.

She believes in a relational approach to counseling and as such, strives to provide a safe place for people to be heard and find acceptance of where they truly are – not just where they think they should be. It is her belief that this authentic, relational approach is what ultimately effects deep heart change. Her specialties include depression, anxiety, relationship issues, sexual abuse, grief, and a variety of women’s issues. She feels especially passionate about helping women find their voice, treat themselves with compassion, and identify and confront the obstacles that keep them from being who they are truly meant to be.


Daniel Wetherbee, M.A.

Daniel has been working with youth and families for nearly 20 years in many different capacities including youth pastoring, therapeutic foster care and professional counseling. He is father to 3 children all under 6 years of age, who teach and stretch him everyday. His marriage of 10 years has rocked his world in both good and difficult ways. Family life has taught him much more than he learned in school, and he brings that viewpoint to his clients.

Daniel approaches counseling holistically dealing with body, mind, spirit and emotions which all need to be addressed for people to move toward healing. He works with youth and families, helping them understand each other, work through conflict and gain a different perspective. He also enjoys working with married and soon-to-be-married couples. He has experience with children ages 5 and up as well as young and more seasoned adults. His specialties include ADHD, depression, coping/communication skill building, anxiety, depression, executive functioning and career counseling.


Heather Clark, MA, LGPC, IAEDP

Heather has lived in the Annapolis area almost her whole life – she attended AACS and AACC, and danced with Ballet Theater of MD. She is also connected to several churches in the area, including Revolution Annapolis, BACC, and BEP.

Heather earned her B.A. from Biola University, and her M.A. in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. She completed her Clinical Internship with The Renfrew Center of Baltimore, an eating disorder treatment facility providing partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient treatment programs. Eating disorders are Heather’s special passion, including anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorder, as well as related concerns, such as body image issues, emotional eating, chronic dieting, intuitive eating, and orthorexia. She is a member of IAEDP, the Int’l Association of Eating Disorder Professionals. This specialization often leads her to work with adolescent and young adult women, which she loves to do. She also works with issues such as depression, anxiety, self-worth, and personal growth.

Central to the therapeutic relationship with Heather is an emphasis on authenticity. She wants her clients to feel the freedom to cut the crap, not worry about saying the “right” thing, and get honest about their thoughts, feelings, and experiences, without shame or fear of judgment. It is her strong hope that a therapeutic relationship like this – one that’s comfortable, sincere, and honest – is where so much growth will happen.


Charity Humm, M.A.

Seeking healing, change and growth can be difficult and lonely work. Sometimes having the support and encouragement of a counselor can provide the clarity and sustained energy necessary to walk this path. Charity’s work with clients is grounded in her belief that counseling offers a shelter for hope, wellness, and resiliency to develop, even in the darkest and scariest of seasons. It is her commitment to this belief that has led Charity to earn a MA in Community Counseling and to become a therapist in the state of Maryland.

Charity enjoys working with a diverse range of clients including individuals, couples, families, the elderly, refugees, LGBTQ, and military clients. Charity utilizes Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Person Centered Counseling, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, EMDR, and Mindfulness to help clients who suffer with a broad range of symptoms including anxiety, depression, emotional dysregulation, relationships issues, self-esteem, trauma, complex trauma, life transitions, spiritual issues, and grief. When working with clients, Charity emphasizes self-compassion, wholeness, and attunement to the mind, body, and spiritual connection. She plans to undergo an extensive training in Trauma Informed Yoga in the Fall/Winter of 2018 in order to provide her clients with additional tools to more fully integrate self-compassion, happiness, and wholeness into their daily lives.


Lisa Bridges, LCSW-C/LICSW

Lisa Bridges has been practicing social work for 20 years with extensive experience working in foster care and adoption. Lisa knows that parenting, grief and loss, and identity formation have special meaning for those in the adoption community and she focuses her practice on helping teens and adults (birth family, adoptive parents, adopted persons) address their needs with solution-focused interventions and a warm, yet direct approach.

Lisa enjoys working collaboratively with clients from diverse backgrounds, cultures, and sexual orientations who are motivated to change. Lisa guides her clients so they may find clarity in areas such as emotions related to search and reunion, moving from infertility to adoption, or trying to find an authentic place in their family, their community or within themselves.

In addition to specializing in adoption, Lisa applies her skills and experience to working with couples seeking more satisfaction from their relationships (improving communication, adjusting to life with a new baby, empty nest) as well as helping parents feel more effective (discipline, communication, adjustment to divorce).

Lisa is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. She received her Master’s degree from the Catholic University of America and is recognized by the Maryland Board of Social Work Examiners as an approved supervisor.
