I love referring to Sequence; the collaboration, compassion and diversity of the clinicians and their skills is a great asset to the mental health community. 

-Stacy Woods MD, Psychiatrist, Rockville

Kathleen Landers and the Sequence counselors have provided wonderful support to a number of our clients, and I’m always confident when referring people to Sequence for therapy or career services. I know they will be in good hands based on the reports I hear and the self-knowledge that clients bring to our mediation meetings. Kathleen is highly knowledgeable, insightful, and approachable, and I’ve enjoyed learning from her.

-Donna Duquette JD, Divorce Mediation, Rockville

When I reached out to SEQUENCE, [they] returned my call right away and were able to conduct a successful lunch and learn presentation for my company’s wellness fair with very little notice.

I got so much positive feedback from the employees that we are in the process of hiring [them] again for an upcoming event. Keep up the AMAZING wellness work SEQUENCE, you are doing great things for this community!
