Our Perspective

New Perspectives is a counseling group with offices in Lutherville, Owings Mills and Westminster, Maryland. We believe that when individuals, couples, families or organizations experience difficulties, often what is needed is to approach the problem from a different angle. When problems are approached from different angles, new avenues appear for finding creative solutions to the problem via a “new perspective”. 

Learning to view a glass as half-full rather than half-empty, redefining problems as opportunities for growth, or increasing one’s confidence to view more options as viable might be the new perspective that works in your situation.   Our commitment to you is to help you, help yourself find a way to solve your problem, become revitalized, and approach the problem from a new perspective. 

At New Perspectives we can help you learn to deal with the following:

  • Manage Stress/Anxiety
  • ADHD
  • Deal with Effects of Trauma
  • Cope with Addictions
  • Improve Relationships/Mood
  • Increase Intimacy
  • Improve Self-Esteem/Self-Confidence
  • Mediate Conflicts

Substance Abuse

Any form of chemical dependency, alcohol or drug, is ultimately a terminal illness if left untreated.  It is terminal because of the progressive nature of the disease:  the user and the life always become worse, never better while using.  However, chemical dependency IS treatable. 
Chemical dependency never seems real until the person reaches that point of helplessness while using.  That is, when the user is hit over the head with such a big two by four that the truths about problem use can no longer be ignored.  There are, however, many stages before reaching helplessness when a person’s chemical dependency reveals signs of interference in daily life or personal responsibilities.  For the accepting, these signs are early clues that help is needed. Read More.
