Terri George, M.Ed., LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor


The oldest of six siblings, Terri was raised in a tight knit community in Western Pennsylvania.  She obtained her undergraduate degree in Psychology in 1988 at St Vincent College in Latrobe, PA and her Masters degree in Community Counseling at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, PA in 1994.  She worked in  community mental health and hospital settings in Westmoreland and Allegheny counties until she and her husband relocated to Hartford, Connecticut.  There, she worked at Natchaug Psychiatric Hospital and in a partnership between Natchaug and Daykimbal Hospitals to provide Partial Hospitalization Programming. 

After moving to the DC area in 1999, Terri worked for 20 years at Loudoun County Mental Health in Leesburg, VA.  She was truly fortunate to do many things with Loudoun’s Community Services Board.  Terri was able to provide outpatient individual and group therapy behavioral health services, to coordinate the CSB’s Adult Co-occurring Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services, to be part of the CSB’s Adult Drug Court, and to provide clinical supervision to many of the CSB’s therapists and clinicians working toward licensure. She is  a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Virginia and is certified by the state to provide clinical supervision. 

Terri manages her own mental wellness through her faith, cherished relationships with family and friends, running, cooking, feeding the people she loves good food, and by being with her husband and the many animals they are blessed to care for.

Maureen bridges Eastern philosophy with Western psychology, utilizing a body-based approach to foster optimum health and wellness.

Maureen completed her masters at the University of Maryland School of Social Work. She is an experienced clinical social worker, licensed to practice in Virginia. Her professional studies in yoga include Traditional Hatha yoga, Raja yoga, Bhakti yoga, Yoga for Depression, and Trauma-Sensitive Yoga.

Today, Maureen teaches yoga in the college setting, and works to bring Yoga techniques front and center in the mental health milieu as a therapeutic adjunct to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, and complex trauma. Maureen offers group classes, private sessions, and professional workshops.

Yoga techniques have been shown to help individuals tolerate physical and sensory experiences associated with fear and helplessness, as well as increase emotional awareness and affect tolerance. In fact, recent empirical evidence suggests that yoga techniques, as a therapeutic adjunct, can significantly reduce trauma and PTSD-like symptoms, with effect sizes comparable to well-known psychotherapeutic and psychopharmacological approaches.
