JASMINE GAMBINO, LMSW received her MSW from the University of Maryland, Baltimore, School of Social Work and is licensed in both Maryland and the District of Columbia. Her goal as a therapist is to inspire hope and change by providing a safe, supportive and nonjudgmental environment to build a therapeutic relationship that allows for courageous “self-study”.  With understanding self comes clarity, and relief, which in turn creates the opportunity to cultivate new healthy ways to think, feel, and react.

Jasmine believes that by working collaboratively, you will uncover, understand, and overcome challenges including loneliness, guilt, shame, fear, grief, and self-doubt. Sometimes these trials result in mood instability, procrastination, depression, anxiety, trauma, coming of age struggles, anger, impulsivity, eating concerns, interpersonal difficulties, or use/misuse of substances. 

Her approach to counseling is holistic, compassionate, eclectic, and collaborative. Jasmine will meet you where you are and adapt her approach to fit your needs by utilizing a variety of modalities such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Problem Solving Skills, Mindfulness techniques, Anger Management, Relationship Skills, Crisis Management, and Supportive Counseling. Jasmine specializes in helping individuals, particularly adults, teenagers, school-age children, and families.
