Talya Knable, LCPC
I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, working with adults and adolescents. With 13 years of experience, I have spent my career working to help others become the best form of themselves they can be, and I take great joy and pride in this. I’ve spent most of my career thus far with The Center for Eating Disorders at Sheppard Pratt, where I provided individual and group therapy in both the inpatient and partial hospitalization programs, as well as coordinated professional and educational workshops and lectures on the topic of eating disorders and body image. Most recently I have worked as a psychotherapist in the outpatient department, working with individuals, couples and groups. In 2018, I made the decision to go into private practice to allow myself to broaden the populations that I am working with, as well as continue my passion of outreach within the community. With experience treating individuals with depression/anxiety, life cycle transitions, self-esteem issues, body image concerns, and relationship issues, to name a few, my goal is to help you develop positive coping skills which will allow you to better navigate whatever it is you are going through, now or in the future.

I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker working with adolescents and adults. I earned my Master’s Degree from University of Maryland School of Social Work. I have spent most of my career working at the Center for Eating Disorders at Sheppard Pratt providing individual, family and group therapy in the inpatient, partial and intensive outpatient settings. My clinical experience includes working with individuals struggling with eating disorders and body image concerns; anxiety, depression and other mood disorders; and life transitions and interpersonal issues. With a compassionate and collaborative approach, my goal is to help clients navigate challenges in their lives and achieve their goals. I enjoy partnering with clients to identify a therapeutic approach that is specific to their needs and that will support them in reaching their goals in therapy. I use a variety of therapeutic modalities in my approach with clients, incorporating Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Mindfulness as well as various modalities that encourage client growth and success.
Jasmine Crandol, LGPC
I am a Licensed Graduate Professional Counselor and a graduate of Loyola University Maryland. During my clinical experience, I've worked with children, adolescents, young adults and their families providing individual and group counseling. I’ve had the opportunity to support clients with depression/anxiety, family conflict, self-esteem, body image, emotional disturbances, life transitions and behavioral issues, to name a few.
My approach to therapy is from a client centered perspective, with you as the captain of your ship. I will act as an anchor to help ground and guide you to your therapeutic goals. I believe we are born with the unique power to help ourselves heal. However, there is not a “how to” guide on life and it can be difficult to find that power on our own. Together, we can approach your journey towards healing by empowering your strengths and giving you a nonjudgmental space to share your story. Although the therapeutic relationship is essential to the process and growth, I also incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Mindfulness, Strengths Based Therapy, and Brief Solution Focused Therapy interventions and other modalities to fit my client’s individual needs.
Using empathy, compassion and authenticity, I will provide a safe and warm environment while joining you on your journey to overall wellness.
