Ms. Oglesby specializes in treating clients who suffer with symptoms of depression, bi-polar, anxiety, and PTSD. She uses an integrative psychotherapeutic approach, of evidenced based interventions, which are tailored to each client’s unique needs and include techniques from CBT, DBT, and solution-focused techniques. Ms. Oglesby also provides support for those who are in recovery from substance and alcohol abuse.
She is a graduate of Loyola University of Maryland Pastoral Counseling program, where she earned an MS in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and specializes in integrating a person's own idea of spirituality into their counseling session.

This self-discovery happens in phases and pertains to the individual's current needs and desires, meaning that the process of therapeutic self-discovery is something that happens both over time and in time.
