WELCOME ... 

INTRODUCTION TO OUR STAFF

 LifeMark is a 501(c) 3 non-profit counseling and educational center that is unapologetic about having a Christian Worldview. We invite you to look through this site and become familiar with our services and information.

 

Having served in a variety of roles, we are well aware of the issues that present themselves in and outside of the church and in the members of each individual family.  

               

 

That is why we have created an environment that offers the skills of trained professional counselors with the wisdom and knowledge that comes from our Wonderful Counselor.   Our counselors are licensed with the State of Maryland and are also nationally recognized.  

 

We would love to sit down and discuss LifeMark and how we can make a difference in your life, the lives of community members, businesses and employees, churches and congregants.

If you have questions or know someone you would like to refer, please feel free to email Heather Radish at hradish@lifemark.pro or contact us at 443-859-8584.  

 

We accept most major insurance companies.

 

Blessings,
