Due to the 2020 national emergency, this practice embraces telehealth for all ages with an easy-to-use, encrypted platform.

This site outlines the mental health counseling for Maryland residents and personal coaching for all that Loriann Oberlin uses in her practice, especially with the heightened anxiety and mood symptoms many experience. Help is but a phone call or email away. Clients have engaged in and embraced both counseling and coaching through audio/video telehealth.

“This has been a scary time in our country with a virus isolating and stressing many of us. So I was very happy to be able to continue sessions using telehealth. I needed these because you still need your mental health. It will make or break you, especially at a time like this. Loriann is no nonsense, telling me what I need to hear, with warmth and acceptance.”— mom juggling job, young family amid coronavirus fears
