Professional statement

Roberta Wasserman is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker located in Davidsonville, MD. Roberta enjoys working with individuals and couples who would like to grow their mental health, especially in reaction to loss, grief, or trauma. Many of her clients suffer from anxiety, depression, or PTSD, which leave them with symptoms of panic, excessive crying, or the inability to feel physically comfortable. She also offers support for clients who are going through family or relationship conflict.

When Roberta works with couples, she incorporates The Gottman Method, an effective therapy modality that teaches clients how to better understand their emotions and use those emotions to bond with their partners. She also practices Motivational Interviewing, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), family systems therapy, and coaching. Clients learn how to use motivators to better understand their emotional states. They also learn how to avoid falling into negative thought patterns that can be detrimental to their mental health. She is a trauma-informed and strengths-based therapist who offers caring, nonjudgmental therapy services.

Roberta earned a Master’s degree from the University of Maryland School of Social Work. She has multiple certifications from additional training, including The Gottman Method, Grief, Family Estrangement, SMART Recovery, and Positive Parenting Solutions. She is passionate about making sure that all clients feel comfortable during the therapy session and takes additional steps to create a safe, peaceful atmosphere where clients can talk about their feelings. She strives to instill hope in her clients that they can reach a level of balance, joy, and respect in their relationships


Message to clients

I have lived life long enough to know how very hard and challenging it can be. I have known times when unconditional care and support carried me through. Life has been extremely challenging on a universal level as we've walked through a global pandemic. This has made even normal life stress harder to cope with for many of us. Therapy is a tool that can be used during any life season to help you navigate through. As a therapist, each person I meet is like a book to be opened and read and I enthusiastically listen to what life is like for them. I offer and reflect ideas and resources that could help make life better. I offer support and guidance to help make improvements that can be made or accept what can't be changed. Often grief is required as we let go of the life we may have wanted or worked for to embrace the life we actually have. Regardless, life can be better. If you find yourself in a place of struggle, just reach out. Don't hesitate to pick up this tool of a therapeutic experience to enhance your health and wellbeing.
