      **AVAILABLE FOR VIRTUAL APPOINTMENTS**

      Peter Fitts, LCSW-C is a seasoned clinician with over 20 years of experience providing therapy for individuals, families, and couples. He operates from a strengths-based, culturally intelligent and holistic perspective. He has an extensive history of working with emotionally challenged youth through the child welfare and juvenile justice systems. In addition to his role as a clinician he has managed therapeutic foster care services for youth within the state of Maryland for over 25 years, implementing best practice methods and evidence based curriculum.

      Mr. Fitts has an innate ability to connect with adolescents, young adults, and adults. He "meets his clients where they are", and works with them to find solutions to change negative thought patterns and behaviors. Of key importance in this process has been his ability to partner with parents and caregivers to provide coaching, self care, and the establishment of healthy age-appropriate expectations. He will never "leave a parent alone" during the turbulent moments of the parenting journey. He has a particular interest in helping treatment-resistant youth, or those who are engaging in therapy for the first time. Mr. Fitts also has past experience treating youth with a history of trauma, neglect, abuse, anxiety, and depression.

      In his work with couples, Mr. Fitts provides a middle ground to help enhance communication and build a healthy foundation for a strong relationship. He has developed and led couples "retreat" vacations for healing and growth. Mr. Fitts understands that relationships often require periods of "quiet listening" which allow individuals to communicate in safe spaces in order to create emotional connections and deeper understanding. Being happily married for over 30 years, Mr. Fitts understands personally the importance of self work, conjoint work, and self care as the roots of successful relationships and marriage.

      Special Interest:

      - Helping treatment resistant youth to shift their energy from resistance to the pursuit of positive goals
      - Helping "failure to launch" young adults gain a sense of direction and the confidence to move towards a self-sufficient future
      - Working with couples in marital therapy

      Mr. Fitts sees clients in both Silver Spring and Bethesda. He is a Board Certified LCSW-C as well as a Board Certified Social Work Supervisor in the State of Maryland.
