Cara Burgess, LMSW


Licensed Master Social Worker / Pronouns: She/Her

I am a Licensed Master Social Worker (LMSW) who uses a person-centered approach to therapy. I graduated from University of Maryland Baltimore with a Master of Social Work with a clinical focus and a specialization in Behavioral Health. My clinical experience includes working with clients in residential and outpatient community mental health settings.

I am a big believer in understanding a client’s circumstances and meeting you where you are. As your therapist, it is my role to facilitate and empower you to reach your goals. Everyone deserves a space where they can be open and fully themselves, and my practice aims to create that space for clients. I work together with clients to be able to find solutions to mental health concerns, as well as everyday problems. I implement a variety of therapeutic approaches, including psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral (CBT), narrative, solution-focused, and mindfulness.

I work with adults and older adolescents. My areas of interest include treating anxiety, depression, trauma, life transitions, and relationship issues. I specialize in working with members of the LGBTQ+ community, especially those who are transgender and non-binary, and bring both professional and lived experience to my practice in this area.
