Meet the Team


Nate Maust is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor and board approved supervisor in the state of Maryland. If you are reading this, there is a good chance that you are working through something that may feel too big to handle on your own. Counseling may seem like a big commitment and it's not uncommon to have reservations about it. I've had the honor of walking alongside individuals with varied experiences and obstacles. Nate's hope is that each client he work with experiences respect, grace, and healing through the counseling experience. Nate aims to provide a judgment-free and supportive experience for individuals, couples, and families through this process.

In 2014, Nate graduated from Frostburg State University with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. He then went on to get a Master's Degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Liberty University and graduated in 2017. His experience is varied through different settings. He's provided counseling through a church, in jail, in a residential setting, and now through private practice. The beginning of his career was focused on substance use counseling. He has broadened his scope to help people work through different mental health struggles, marital conflicts, and family changes. 

Dan Allender once wrote, “The work of restoration cannot begin until a problem is fully faced.” Facing problems is often not fun and can be quite frankly scary but it is necessary in order to experience restoration and health. Please reach out if you don't want to face these problems on your own.
