Dr. John Persampiere

I am the founder and lead Psychologist at Annapolis Child and Family Therapy Center. I have many years of experience in leadership roles in child and family mental health at world-renowned institutions. These institutions have included the Kennedy Krieger Institute and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.


I started the Annapolis Child and Family Therapy Center to bring the highest quality therapy and assessment services to the Anne Arundel County Region. 


Biography of Dr. John Persampiere

I am a Licensed Psychologist in the state of Maryland who specializes in working with children, teens, and adults with different mental health and behavioral concerns. I completed my Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Clinical Psychology at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.


I completed my doctoral internship and postdoctoral fellowship at the Kennedy Krieger Institute‚Äôs Child and Family Therapy Clinic and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. After completing my fellowship, I was hired by the Kennedy Krieger Institute and served many leadership roles in the Department of Behavioral Psychology. I also became full-time faculty member at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine. Previous leadership positions included Associate Director of a large multi-site Child and Family Therapy Clinic, Postdoctoral Fellowship Program Director, Doctoral Internship Program Director, and department training committee member.  I left these institutions to start my own treatment center in Annapolis, Maryland. 


I am a frequently requested speaker and trainer by schools, hospitals, primary care doctors, and outpatient mental health providers. I talk to parents, teachers, and healthcare providers on a wide range of mental health concerns facing individuals, children, couples, and families. I am passionate about direct client care and aim to help families increase their strength, resilience, and skills in dealing with a range of challenges. It is my mission to ensure parents are aware of the best mental health treatment options for their children and families. I also serve as a part-time assistant professor for UMBC's Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, teaching the next generation of future Clinical Psychologists on evidence-based treatments. 

 

Outside of psychology, I enjoy spending time with my wife, two children, and adorable rescue Labrador Retriever in Anne Arundel County, Maryland. I am also an avid bass guitar player who enjoys reading and going to museums with my family.
