Heather Braeuninger, LCSW, LCSW-C


Licensed Certified Social Worker - Clinical / Pronouns: She/Her

I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW-C) in Maryland, licensed (LCSW) in Virginia, have my Master’s in Social Work from University of Maryland, Baltimore, and undergraduate degree in Early Childhood/Elementary Education from Hannibal LaGrange College. After teaching for 6 years, I realized I enjoyed the social-emotional support of my students/families and wanted to pursue a career in social work. Prior to joining private practice, I have been a school-based and clinic therapist.

As a therapist, I see the importance of client-centered therapy and acting as a guide in their therapeutic journey. Areas of specialized approaches include CBT, play therapy, psychoeducation, talk therapy, narrative therapy, art therapy techniques, somatic approaches, and mindfulness. With a background of experience in grief, trauma, ADHD, anxiety, life transitions, and depression, I’ve treated clients ranging from children (8+), to adolescents, to adults (20-65) as well as family units.
