About Me

“Just when the caterpillar thought the world was over, it became a butterfly.”
~Barbara Haines Howette

Hello, my name is Adrienne Better, and I am a license clinical social worker living in the State of Maryland. For my entire life, I have always had a passion to help people through their own life’s journey. I have been in the helping professional for over 10 years, and within those years I have had the privilege of assisting people in making changes for the better in their lives. Along with my Masters in Social Work, I also attained a Masters in Divinity and have done Christian Counseling for the past 5 years. Both of these disciplines allows me to assist people in exploring mind, body and spirit. You have already started your process of change by exploring this website and my page, it would be my honor to assist you in your journey towards healing and wholeness.

I do a combination of person-centered and strength-based approaches in treatment where I provide you with the moment and the virtual space you need to be heard and empowered. I co-journey with you to explore your areas of concerns and provide you with the therapeutic interventional tools you need to work towards resolution. I am a believer in you and the goal you set for yourself. Let the journey begin.

Written by M.I. on Jan 11, 2021 after counseling with Adrienne for 2 weeks

After our second session with Ms. Better, my husband and I feel she is very knowledgeable of God's Word and is both thoughtful and insightful. She encourages us and shares a spiritual connection with the Father, therefore sharing one with us. We are blessed and thankful to have her.

Adrienne has been a God send, when I first joined the Faithful Counseling platform, I didn't connect with my initial assigned therapist but I gave it one more shot and thankfully was matched with Adrienne. She has helped me so much in the small amount of time I've been working with her and is patient, kind, understanding, and so knowledgeable: all the qualities one would want in a therapist.
