One of the best parts of our community at My Annapolis Office is getting to know our members. We enjoy being able to learn more about what everyone does not just on a professional level, but on a personal one as well. We recently had the chance to learn more about Lee Anne Woomert and her business and we hope you enjoy getting to learn more about Lee Anne as well – Take a look!
Tell us about your company and what you do?
Bridgewater Psychology provides neuropsychological, psychological, and educational evaluations for children, adolescents, and young adults, as well as therapy for youth and adults. Evaluations and therapy are commonly sought to answer questions about diagnosis or to provide intervention services and recommendations (e.g., for therapy, school services, or other medical services).
I provide diagnostic interviews, screenings, brief/targeted testing, and comprehensive evaluations. Comprehensive evaluations are offered in both traditional format (over 1-3 days) and collaborative format (over a number of weeks). Collaborative evaluation is a combined model of assessment and brief therapeutic intervention to help families deeply explore the test results and how to use the recommendations in daily life.
Concerns for which people commonly seek evaluation and/or treatment include anxiety, ADHD, developmental concerns, disruptive behaviors, cognitive/memory/learning difficulties, depression/mood disorders, social skills challenges, and trauma.
How did you get started in your industry?
I first obtained my undergraduate degrees at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, then went on to receive my master’s and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology at the University of Indianapolis. I moved to Maryland to complete a two-year post-doctoral fellowship at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and Kennedy Krieger Institute. At the conclusion of fellowship, I joined the staff in the Department of Neuropsychology where I worked until I started Bridgewater Psychology.
What is something about your business that most people do not know?
Most people are familiar with therapy and tend not to be as familiar with the evaluation process. Evaluations are incredibly helpful for clarifying the challenges a person is facing so that treatment (e.g., therapy, medication management, school planning, etc.) can be more targeted, efficient, and effective.
Where do you see your business in 5 years?
I hope to see my business becoming increasingly more connected with the Annapolis community. I work very closely with a number of other mental health providers, including Dr. John Persampiere and his incredible staff at Annapolis Child and Family Therapy Center.
Tell me about yourself?
I am a North Carolina native who has moved around quite a bit throughout my educational and professional development. I am married to an educator and we have two young daughters, along with a few cats and dogs.
Other than work, what are you passionate about?
I am passionate about learning and spending as much quality time with my family as I can. Although the last few months have been a challenge due to COVID-19, I am grateful for the opportunity to do more of both things.
What types of activities or hobbies do you enjoy outside of work?
My family and I love being outdoors, cycling, cooking, and visiting family around the country and in Ontario.
Why did you choose My Annapolis Office and how has working here helped your business?
Dr. Persampiere, owner of Annapolis Child and Family Therapy Center, is a colleague and friend with whom I have worked for many years. He established his successful practice at My Annapolis Office and suggested it to me when I was building my practice. The location and amenities are fantastic for the families with whom I work.
