Jailaxami Rajan, LCSW-C
Welcome to starting this journey in introspection and self growth with me. I hold a degree in social work with mental health concentration from University of Maryland.
I have experience working in Partial Hospitalization Program and in out-patient mental health clinics. My best engagement involves a client willing to evaluate and change the thoughts, behavioral patterns and relationships that are holding their mental conflict in place and preventing them from living life to its fullest. Together we will delve into your personal situation to determine the root cause of your restrictive wall, examine your present life situations to learn healthy ways of thinking, behaving and coping, and plan for a desirable future that may mean transitioning and adapting to change and maintaining the stability you have strived hard to achieve.
I will gladly work with individuals and if need be with their families, to help them learn to manage depression, anxiety, obsessive thinking, low self esteem, impulsivity, emotional regulation. I can work with you on learning strategies for managing and reducing stress related to work, school or relationships.
My pursuit of learning leads me to use an eclectic approach in therapy. I offer therapy that fits the needs and personalities of my clients. I lean heavily on psychodynamic, solution focused, cognitive-behavioral and dialectical behavioral therapy models. Mindfulness, with its emphasis on being non-judgmental is the foundation of my approach to therapy.
