Dagenhart and Associates is a mental health private practice serving Frederick County, Maryland and the surrounding areas. We have been proudly serving our community since 2010. Since our opening we have had one goal in mind, and that goal has never changed:

The providers at Dagenhart and Associates offer a wide range of specialty areas including depression, anxiety, divorce recovery (for both adults and children), self-esteem, adolescent issues (i.e. school performance, anger management), relationship and couples counseling, sexual dysfunctions, crisis intervention, & medication management.
We offer a variety of individual, couples, and family services.
We also run various groups.
Please contact the office to inquire about specific details regarding our groups.
Most appointments can be offered within 7-14 business days.
