JASMINE MAUSS, MS, LCMFT
COUPLE & FAMILY THERAPIST
Originally from California, I completed my undergraduate studies at San Diego State University, focusing my attention on elements of psychology, public health, counseling, and social change. Continuing my life and education on the East Coast, I moved to Maryland to pursue my graduate degree in Couple and Family Therapy. It was there that I worked as a graduate therapist intern for two years at the Center for Healthy Families.
I am qualified as a Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist (LCMFT), and am also a Pre-Clinical Member of American Association for Marriage and Family Therapy (AAMFT). In addition, I am a Facilitator for the PREPARE/ENRICH Premarital Counseling Program. I have clinical experience working with individuals, couples, and families, helping them navigate through various issues, big and small. Some of my work with individuals has included dealing with anxiety, combating depression, and working through traumatic experiences. With my couples and families, I have assisted in strengthening communication skills, finding areas for connection, and creating healthier boundaries and expectations. Other areas of interest/expertise include couple intimacy, sexual issues and dysfunction, substance abuse, and partner violence. My goal for therapy is to help clients establish a stronger sense of self-awareness and understanding, gain reflective insight into their issues, and promote healthier access to flourishing relationships.
Many would describe me as a friendly, dependable, laid back, and compassionate therapist who strives to find the best in every person and situation. I enjoy mindfulness, meditation, yoga, and all things artistic. It is my belief that people find ways to express their thoughts and emotions through selective mediums such as writing, drawing, traveling, exploring and creating, etc., to find meaning in their world. I believe, that together, we can figure out if therapy can serve as that medium too!
