Catherine S. Melby, LCSW-C
Clinical Social Worker

Phone: 301-745-1900, Ext. 305
Catherine "Kay" S. Melby is a licensed, certified, clinical social worker (LCSW-C) in the state of Maryland. She provides psychotherapy to adults struggling with a variety of situational and mental health issues. Kay approaches therapy from a relational model believing that we are a product of our relationships, past and present, and recognizing that this history is often reflected in our beliefs about ourselves and others, our coping strategies, and our patterns of behavior. Gaining insights into this history can impact the way we feel, cope and think, thus influencing our lives in a positive manner.

Education and Counseling Philosophy

Kay holds a bachelor's degree from Shepherd University, a master's degree in clinical social work from the Catholic University of America, and a master's of business administration from Frostburg State University. In addition, she has completed two post-graduate training programs with the Washington School of Psychiatry in object relations theory and therapy and in group psychotherapy.
