Nadia Bhatti

Position: Regional Director
Credentials: LICSW

Nadia Bhatti, Regional Director, is Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW) and have been working in the field for over nine years. I have had the honor of working with a wide range of people experiencing relationship and/or transitional issues, as well as more severe problems including mental health, personality disorders, mood and anxiety disorders, trauma, OCD, grief, Families, organ transplantation, and individuals who struggle with depression, anxiety, relational couples issues, and substance use disorders.
I utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT), Motivational Enhancement Therapy (MET), Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT), Function Family Therapy, and Mind-Body interventions. I believe it’s essential to be open-minded and non-judgmental when someone shares their personal story or experiences with me. Our relationship with our self and others has worth and is useful to explore in therapy. I believe that seeking help is a huge step in the right direction and that therapy should be viewed as personal care and maintenance, not because something is “wrong” with you. My warm and collaborative style is empowering and I help hold the clients accountable for making the changes they wish to see in their lives.

Home Services

Potomac “Home” is our name for appointments that occur in the community rather than in our offices. When you’d prefer to get support at random times of the day or evening, Potomac Home services are usually only 1-2 hours per week.

A "Whole Family" Solution

We also have the same options for your parents but instead of calling them Mentors we call them “Parent Coaches”. Your parents can choose to have “clinical” or “life” assistance. And some of our life coaches can coach your parents over a phone or a tablet or a computer.

Ready When You Are

In addition to weekly scheduled sessions, Potomac Mentors and Coaches are available for you and your parents in real time, at critical moments when you might need support and guidance the most.

Wherever You Are

Many of our Home participants have come to us after completing a wilderness program or residential treatment. They can’t stand the thought of going back to an office for more therapy. Potomac Home is a better alternative. We meet you wherever you are most comfortable.

Earning Our Reputation

This in-the-moment support via phone or text is why Potomac Home has earned its reputation for success with tough, real-world situations.

Optimize Your Support Network

Here’s an example of how your Potomac Home Mentor and Parent Coach work together with your family to optimize the resources you have in your community. Many people are surprised to learn that there are hundreds of solutions for you within the circle of friends and leaders you already know!
