A grounded place to heal amongst the waves of life

Compassionate trauma therapy and counseling for individuals, couples & children

We respectfully acknowledge that the land on which we work, live, and practice is the traditional unceded territory of the Piscataway, Nanticoke & Susquehannock Nations.

At Anchored Hope, we understand that you are an individual with a unique journey and story. We believe that you can heal, move forward, and find purpose on your path. You are already taking the first steps in your journey by being here. We would be honored to partner with you on the journey ahead.

We are a collaborative group of social workers, licensed professional counselors, colleagues, and friends. What started as just two friends and therapists (Chelsea and Christine) in 2016 has grown into an award-winning practice of 30+ therapists in our 17 office suite in Annapolis, Maryland.

Trauma Trained

All of our therapists are trauma trained, with advanced skills to address the deeper issues behind your symptoms. Some of the modalities we utilize include somatic/body-based healing, Internal Family Systems Therapy, Brainspotting, EMDR and Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT). When you see one of our therapists, you can feel confident that you are engaging in the most cutting edge approaches to mental health and wellness.
