Welcome! The Frederick Center for Marriage and Family Therapy was founded by Alicia Dacey in Frederick in 2008. It became a group practice in 2017. We offer relationship and mental health services to individuals, couples, and families, and we work with young children, teens, and adults. Play therapy is also provided. We enjoy serving the community of Frederick and promoting the health and well-being of the people and families of our wonderful community. We have the utmost respect for people who reach out to us for help and who want to better themselves, their relationships, and their lives. We also offer Spanish-speaking services. This year we will expand to providing medication management services.
FCMFT is a full telehealth practice. Telehealth is covered by insurance. We have been offering telehealth mental health services since the beginning of the pandemic. Our clients have been very satisfied with the high quality therapy they are receiving. The Covid-19 shut down was on Friday March 13, 2020. My practice was up and running with telehealth the following Monday with the continuation of care people so needed. Telehealth consists of numerous benefits for clients: We serve clients all over the state of Maryland, distance and commute are no longer a factor to receiving high quality care; services are provided in rural towns where there are no therapists; during the pandemic, people who otherwise would not have received much needed services were able to receive services; parents with young children do not have to get a babysitter; people can take an hour break during their work day for therapy; people don’t have to sit in rush hour traffic; people can get the help they need and have more time to spend with their family. And most of all, I care deeply for your safety and my staff’s safety. It is possible to get help with and work on your relationships and mental health even in a pandemic, and telehealth provides an efficient, effective tool for implementing those goals.
