Robert S. Seiler, Jr., LCSW-C

I am passionate about helping others grow and thrive!  The individuals and couples I work with are amazingly resilient, resourceful, and capable of fashioning the lives they want.  In therapy we will explore collaboratively and mindfully how behaviors and emotions from childhood hold you back today.  You can learn to feel better and develop deeper, more satisfying relationships.  I offer a safe, empathic presence to help you get unstuck and create a more joyful life.  I am a preferred provider for CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield.


John Zager, Ph.D.

I have a Ph.D. degree in psychology, and I am licensed in the State of Maryland. I am a graduate of the psychology program at the University of Maryland in College Park. I currently have a psychotherapy practice. Regarding psychotherapy, in my experience, a person seeks the assistance of a therapist when a pattern of behavior is no longer effective or when a life transition occurs. In turn, a person begins to develop new options and new life directions when he or she has the experience of being heard and being understood. This is the service that I offer to individuals and couples.

I have background in working with people who are experiencing stress and anxiety due to family or relationship concerns, work conflict or trauma. Another area that people have sought help with is sadness and depressed mood which may follow a loss. I also have background in addiction treatment, maintaining sobriety and in understanding the impact of addiction on personal and family life. Further, I see people who need help in recognizing and working through personal and family distress which may arise during young adulthood, the middle years or during one’s senior years.

I am in network with Blue Cross, United Health, Aetna and Cigna.
