Many people are frustrated by how difficult it is to find reliable help for counseling and other mental health needs in St Mary’s County. I have therefore put together my own counseling resources list of recommendations for local specialists. To learn about my own areas of specialization, read about them here.
Carol Porto Treatment Center – Prince Frederick, MD (Inpatient Drug and Alcohol)
Warwick Manor – Eastern Shore, MD (Inpatient Drug and Alcohol)
April Kriz – Mechanicsville, MD (Sex Addiction Specialist)
Celebrate Recovery (A Christian 12-Step Program)
Other Counseling Resources
Melinda Ruppert – Mechanicsville, MD (Grief Counseling)
Psychiatrists and Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners
Sabrina Sepulveda – Calvert Behavioral Health. Rumor has it that she is also setting up her own practice. (She takes the time to get to know her clients. I would recommend her first if you can get in with her.)
QCI – White Plains, MD (This is a larger clinic, but they do well with care coordination)
Patricia Kane – Dunkirk, MD (best referral for those in Calvert County)
Poor nutrition and food sensitivities are an often-overlooked cause of mental health difficulties.
