Licensed Certified Social Worker – Clinical
Hello, I am Jennifer Steier. I graduated from the University of Maryland School of Social Work in 2001 and have been a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C) since 2003. My career includes six years working at the University of Maryland Medical Center as an integral part of the interdisciplinary team on the geriatric then the pediatric psychiatric units. Since leaving hospital work, I have worked with individuals, couples, and families as an outpatient therapist. I have been trained in Child-Directed Play Therapy and I find particular satisfaction helping children discover who they are and who they can become. I also hold a post-graduate certificate in Psychotherapy from the University of Maryland School of Social Work. I work with a large variety of concerns from stress management to anxiety, depression and eating disorders to coping with chronic illnesses and to child behavioral and parenting issues.
I became a social worker because I enjoy helping people. I believe there are times in everyone’s life where it can help to talk to someone who is accepting, non-judgmental, and who’s only goal is to assist them to live your best life no matter what the circumstances are. I view and treat every client as a unique individual and personalize my work to meet your specific situation. We will spend the first session figuring out how we can best work together to facilitate the change you are interested in making. Besides daytime hours during the week, I offer both evening and Saturday hours in order to better meet my clients’ needs and schedules.
