Welcome to Alvord, Baker & Associates

Alvord, Baker & Associates, LLC is a unique, caring, and innovative psychotherapy practice founded by Drs. Mary Alvord and Patricia Baker in 1983.We specialize in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) and other evidence-based treatments. Our practice offers therapy options for children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families, as well as group opportunities for all ages. Additional services include psychological evaluations and school consultations. We welcome all clients regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity.

We are well aware that the decision to seek help from a mental health professional is not an easy one. From the first phone call, each of our therapists will take the time to understand and help clarify needs. We work with individuals and families continually to develop and hone therapeutic goals and plans.

For those new to our practice, please note that our waitlist for individual therapy is open for those who can schedule appointments before 2:30 PM. We are actively enrolling in our Fall group sessions for children, teens, and parents. Please contact our intake coordinator at 301-593-6554 x 23.


Due to COVID-19, Alvord, Baker & Associates is currently providing services via telehealth and in-person. We have limited in-office services and most groups are hybrid (mostly in-person and some virtual sessions). Masks are optional.
