The Beacon Center is a shared office space for professionals providing services for individuals and families facing uncertainty in their lives. The Beacon Center currently offers counseling/psychotherapy services for individuals and families, and lactation consultation for parents. Each professional is independently licensed and insured, and schedules appointments via their own corresponding link on the services page. We are located in the Bay Hills Plaza professional suite 211, Arnold, Maryland.
The essence of our work is to provide a welcoming and respectful environment for individuals of all ages and their families, by offering services that support them as they navigate through their respective difficulties.
Meeting as students at Syracuse University while pursuing their Masters degrees, Monette Goodridge and Amber Lassally recognized that they share a common appreciation for the value of the family system. Amber and Monette envisioned a place where individuals and their families could connect during difficult times to have their needs met using a whole person concept. They established The Beacon Center after relocating to Maryland to fulfill this vision of offering family services. Amber Lassally, LCSW-C, provides mental health therapy for individuals and families, and together with Monette Goodridge, LMSW, manages The Beacon Center. They are pleased to welcome other professionals to the center to support their concept of providing direction and hope when facing uncertainty.
