Tana C. PhD, Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Annapolis, Maryland

I am a licensed clinical psychologist who practices evidence-based care for children and adults with a variety of clinical conditions. I founded  Waypoint Wellness Center, a multidisciplinary group mental health practice with three offices and twenty clinical staff including psychiatrists, psychologists, and therapists.

I have an extensive experience working with children and adolescents with attention and behavior problems, anxiety, depression, autism spectrum symptoms, trauma, and self-harm behaviors. I also have experience and expertise in psycho-educational and neuropsychological assessment and have a certification in DBT through the DBT-NCAA.

I completed my doctoral degree in clinical psychology from the University of Maryland at College Park.  I have trained at several nationally recognized institutions including the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, the Kennedy Krieger Institute, and Children’s National Medical Center. I have presented at numerous conferences (including the American Psychological Association and the Association for Behavioral and Cognitive Therapies) and authored several journal articles on the assessment and treatment of psychological issues in both children and adults. I have provided training and consultations with local public school systems, professional organizations, and training centers on mental health treatment and the business of private practice.

I started Waypoint Wellness Center in 2015.  Waypoint Wellness Center specializes in skills-based approaches including cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical-behavioral therapy (DBT) that attempt to empower individuals to manage their emotional well-being more effectively.  Waypoint Wellness Center has grown in 5 years, now with three locations and 20 clinicians. Waypoint Wellness Center has been recognized by the Maryland Gazette, Capital Gazette, Chesapeake Family Magazine, and What’s Up? Annapolis, for their top doctors in the psychiatrist, psychologist, and therapist categories.

I’m happy to provide guidance and additional expertise in the following areas:  Networking, Hiring/Recruiting/Retention, Brand building, and Psychology.
