JaVon is able to  interpret and analyze information from a clinical lens and then practically apply it back to her work.

Meet JaVon Townsend



As a therapist, I see my role as a facilitator.  I provide a gentle space for people to work through the challenges life presents.  I approach our time together through a holistic, strengths-based, culturally-informed perspective.  It is important to me to honor all the things that make you who you are.

We will work together to understand what you need from the therapeutic process.  I use an eclectic approach to therapy, incorporating the use of several psychological theories, as well as mindfulness practices and psychoeducation.  Because you are a whole person, I will make space to acknowledge the needs of your mind, body, and spirit if, and when, you are ready.

I am always honored to be invited into the lives of people during vulnerable times, and it brings me joy to witness the healing and growth of the people I work with.

JaVon is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW-C) in the State of Maryland.
