Richard Pehle


I believe at some time in our lives all of us face significant challenges and problems. It is natural to seek support when you are faced with stress, trauma, communication issues, depression, addiction, coping with illness or being a caregiver. It is my hope to work with you to define the problems you face, determine your goals and work with you to make your life better. As a licensed Clinical Social Worker in Maryland I have been providing counseling to adults, couples, children and families for over 20 years.

For me an important part of counseling is forming a partnership with the people I see and to address their concerns in a way that they feel listened to, understood and supported. While I have been trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Gestalt Therapy and Mindfulness Meditation techniques, I work to find the best approaches and resources for each person.

As well as being a counselor I have enjoyed working in a wide variety of helping professions. My work has included time as a medical corpsman, special education teacher, and certified outdoor adventure therapist. I have worked in a variety of settings including working in community mental health centers, addiction treatment centers, military hospitals, public schools and at the University of Maryland. I have also enjoyed work in radio and television broadcasting. Within all of these careers my central focus was helping others to solve problems, find resources and improve their lives.

I look forward to having the opportunity to work with you.
