"There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives."

Baylee Hutchison (She/Her/Hers)
Psychotherapist - Intern
I am a currently a student University of Maryland School of Social Work. I graduated from York College of Pennsylvania in 2018 where I studied behavioral science and the basics to working with people. I have a passion for working with women and girls to practice empowerment and self-love; this includes, but is not limited to, domestic violence, intimate partner violence, and teen dating violence survivors. I tend to utilize a holistic approach with clients, which focuses on an individual’s body, mind, and spirit. This approach allows me to look at my clients as a whole, rather than a person with an illness or issue. I deeply value the client-therapist relationship and always strive to build safe, trusting, and comfortable relationships with individuals. A mantra I like to abide by is that the client is the expert on their own situation, and as a therapist it is my job to listen, understand, and collaborate with them to address their needs.
