Mezeline Lindor, M.Ed., LPC
Mezeline received her BS in Criminology from Suffolk University in Boston, Massachusetts and her M.Ed in Human Development and Psycho-Educational Studies from Howard University in Washington, DC. She began her work in counseling with children, adolescents and families, over two decades ago, with the primary mission to focus on their strengths, and to utilize those strengths to heal the patterns that caused impaired functioning in their lives, and their relationships.
Mezeline’s intention is to provide a safe empathetic environment, and to utilize the skills attained through education, training, and life experiences to facilitate change. She genuinely does her best to treat each individual with unconditional positive regard, and honor the uniqueness of each individual she has the opportunity to work with. With that, she hopes to assist her clients to discover peace and fulfillment in their lives, and true connectedness in their relationships.

Candace's approach to psychotherapy and addiction counseling is practical and empathetic. She strives to honor the uniqueness of each of her clients in order to promote healing and recovery.

Ni Ru Hsieh, MA
Resident in Counseling
Ni Ru Hsieh earned her Bachelor of Science (with Honours) in Business Management from the University of Bradford, UK - Singapore Campus, and her Masters of Arts in Urban Education (Community Counseling) from Norfolk State University, Virginia Beach, and a Post-Master’s Certificate in Counseling from The George Washington University in D.C. Ni comes from Singapore, a multi-ethnic city and enjoys working with clients from all walks of life. She has a strong curiosity in the human psyche. She believes in focusing on the good of people and finds that often times people have a lack of connection within themselves, which transcends onto difficult situations that people encounter in their lives.
Ni has been a volunteer with the Anger & Domestic Abuse Prevention & Treatment Program (ADAPT) in Fairfax County since 2017. She finds it rewarding to witness clients evolved with greater awareness and understanding of themselves. Her personal life experiences and working with clients showed her that although life is full of ups and downs, it is also filled with an abundance of hope and possibilities. Ni is passionate in bringing that hope to clients through rediscovering and tapping into their strengths, to seeking solutions that work best for them, and reawaken their beautiful inner selves that they have been longing to reconnect with. As it is through a genuine connection and fulfilling relationship with self can then one shine and have a fulfilling relationship in all other aspects of one's life.
