My name is Olimpia Etts, MSW, LCSW-C, ACH. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the State of Maryland and Advanced Certified Hypnotherapist providing psychological counseling to individuals and groups. I specialize in working with adult clients who have disordered eating patterns, and facilitate support groups for individuals who are interested in exploring their relationship with food or have undergone weight loss surgery.

How I work
I follow a two step approach:
First, to address the thinking that causes you to feel or act a certain way (depressed, overeat, angry).
Second, to address and facilitate healing of underlying emotions or beliefs (e.g. worthlessness, grief, shame, etc.).
In a safe environment, you can explore current or past issues as well as develop and practice new coping strategies that are life-enhancing.
Olimpia Etts, MSW, LCSW, ACH has offices in La Plata, which is located in Charles County (Southern Maryland).
