Meet Carlada Razmus
LCPC MAC PMH-C
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor in the State of Maryland. I have been in the mental health/addiction field for 23 years; licensed for 16. I am the owner of Turning Stone Counseing and love the family we have created in our small community. I believe that counseling works with the right fit, the right goals, and the right foundation. I am a white, CIS gendered female. I am an LGBTQIA+ ally and actively working on understanding how my privilege affects oppressed groups.
My Approach to Therapy:
I believe in the importance of having a connection with all of my clients. Without it I find it difficult to make progress. I also believe that connection can happen immediately or over many years. I want my clients to feel like they know what to expect from me, which sometimes is the unexpected. The relationship I form with my clients is often filled with laughter, sadness, frustration, and curiosity.
I use many different strategies & interventions to help my clients reach their goals. Foundationally I want all of my clients to develop a deeper understanding of how they got here and how to listen to their bodies to help them acheive their goals. Most of the time when we are not in tune to what our bodies are telling us we then become symptomatic.
Client’s who work well with me:
√ Those who want to understand the connection between the stories they grew up believing and the ones they want to create.
√ Clients who are willing to go at the pace that aligns with their body.
√ Clients who want to find themselves and are willing to risk being vunerable to acheive this.
√ Clients who are willing to be creative in trying different strategies to acheive their goals.
My Focus Area’s:
I work with adolescents to adults, families, and couples.
