“You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have the right to be here.” – Max Ehrmann
Hi, I’m Autumn Rufener, LCSW-C I am a clinical social worker in the state of Maryland providing tele health therapy. I have been practicing since 2015. Over those 8 years I have developed a way of practicing therapy that centers on our therapeutic relationship. I believe that building a trusting, comfortable therapeutic rapport is one of the most important parts too healing. To that end you can expect our sessions to include time to get know each other.
I work from a client centered and psychodynamic approach. My goal is to help you see, feel and believe you’re worth. I utilize compassion, empathy, and human connection to help you identify patterns, create new pathways and live a healthier life.
I have experience working in the areas of anxiety, depression, trauma, women issues, LGBTQIA+ issues, and general humanness. Starting therapy and choosing to share your story can be scary, my hope is to make you feel as safe as possible in that choice.
“You are valuable and worthwhile because you exist.”- unknown.
