Holly Hargreaves Holly Hargreaves, M.A., L.G.P.C, N.C.C.
Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor (L.G.P.C.), Maryland
Nationally Certified Counselor, (N.C.C.)

Are you ready to take the first step towards self-discovery and/or healing? I meet the client where he or she is at, and together we create collaborative goals based on each client’s individual needs. My theoretical counseling philosophy is focused towards unconditional positive regard and empathy toward the client. I also prefer using Narrative Therapy theories such as the view that the problem is separate from the person; that is the belief that the client is not the problem, yet the problem is the problem. Further, I also utilize Narrative Therapy Counseling Techniques such as Journaling, Re-storying and Life Time Lines.

I have previous experience working in psychological and counseling settings such as: Private Practice, School Psychology, Community Mental Health Agencies, Therapeutic Recreation and Animal Assisted Therapy Programs. I also currently conduct research on Animal Assisted Therapy and I have recently presented my research at various national conferences.
