Located outside of Washington, DC in the communities of Silver Spring and Bethesda, Maryland, The Mindful Heart provides specialized outpatient counseling services for clients struggling with alcohol and substance use disorders, as well as dual diagnosis issues like depression, anxiety and trauma. The team at Mindful Heart also addresses personal, marital and family problems. Founded in 2012, Mindful Heat believes that every client is different, and is best treated through care customized to their unique needs and goals. The facility employs a number of therapeutic methods including evidence-based modalities, experiential models and solution-focused therapy.
Treatment and Staff
Clients beginning treatment at Mindful Heart, be it for psychotherapy or nutritional counseling, are asked to print out and complete intake forms from the website. These assessments are reviewed during the first session, and help the team determine the best possible tailored action plan for treatment. Clients are also welcome to contact the facility for a free consultation over the phone. With Mindful Heart’s flexible outpatient programming, therapy is available during the day, evening and on weekends in both locations. While most therapy sessions are scheduled weekly for 50 minutes, 90 minute options are available.
Mindful Heart treats a wide array of substance use disorders, mental health conditions, eating disorders, learning disorders like ADHD and personal challenges such as self-esteem and body image issues. The facility provides a curriculum of care for couples with communication problems, infidelity and divorce. Mindful Heart also offers counseling for parental issues as well as specialized sessions for adolescents and play therapy for children. Clients engage in individual, couples and family therapy with therapists trained in evidence-based CBT and EMDR for individuals struggling with trauma. Twelve-step recovery is not a part of programming here.
The Mindful Heart team consists of Master’s-level therapists, nutritionists and PhDs. Without a physician or psychiatrist on staff, medication management is not available for clients with co-occurring disorders.
Mindful Heart accepts payments from Health Savings Account cards. While the facility does not accept insurance, clients are provided with a “superbill” for reimbursement.
The Mindful Heart is a boutique outpatient counseling facility with two locations north of Washington, DC. The facility provides personalized treatment programs tailored to the individual client’s needs. For DC-area clients looking for an established facility with a top notch team of therapists and nutritionists, Mindful Heart is a great option.
