My name is Stephanie Bathurst, a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist in the state of Maryland and a Board Certified Clinical Sexologist . I have completed a Doctoral program in Clinical Sexology at the International Institute for Clinical Sexology in Miami, FL and am currently finishing a dissertation to receive the degree. My Master's degree was received from La Salle University in Clinical Counseling (Specializing in Marriage and Family Therapy), with a secondary track in Addictions Counseling. I founded my Private Practice in 2014. Currently, I work as a Psychotherapist in Columbia, MD and Silver Spring, MD for a group practice in addition to my Private Practice, Bathurst Family Therapy, LLC.
Appointment times for Bathurst Family Therapy, LLC can range from as early as 8:00 am to as late as 9:30 pm, Monday - Friday. I do not have weekend hours available. My true passion is engaging couples who have lost one another in the journey of life; helping them to identify maladaptive communication patterns, boundaries or general needs that may be impeding them from enjoying their time together. I work with heterosexual couples, lesbian and gay couples and multi-partner relationships. Sexual dissatisfaction, fulfillment and dysfunctions are also a professional interest in mine, seeing as these worries often intersect with relational difficulties. I work well with clients of military and law enforcement backgrounds and their families, understanding the hardships and transitions that are associated with this lifestyle.
My private practice is partly mobile, which means that sessions are held in the client's individual household. I find that clients, often those new to Therapy, feel more comfortable in their own environment. I also offer sessions at my home office in Woodstock, MD (Direct address provided upon exchange of information and scheduling). Fees are based on a sliding scale, which can be referenced in the Client Resources tab above. I am currently accepting new clients and encourage you to review the rest of my site for a more personal look.
Thank you for viewing my web page. If you have any interest in arranging a meeting to see if this would be a good match, or if you have any questions that I haven't covered on this site, please do not hesitate to contact me. I wish you and your loved ones health and happiness.
