Dr. Grow completed his undergraduate degree in psychology at the University of Maryland. He attended graduate school at Argosy University, Washington D.C. After completing his doctor of psychology, he held a private practice at Villa Maria, an outpatient community mental health clinic in Westminster, Maryland. While working with Villa Maria, he became the first mental health practitioner to hold an office within a school (East & West Middle Schools and Robert Moton Elementary). He became aquainted with the Carroll County School System policies and procedures for special education. He consulted with these schools and parents to identify the best service for his clients. He accepted a commission in the US Navy as a clinical psychologist in 2008. Dr. Grow was stationed at the National Naval Medical Center as a staff psychologist and member of the APA accredited psychology residency program. In summer 2009, he was deployed to the Combat Stress Clinic at Camp Liberty, Baghdad, Iraq. Upon returning to NNMC, he was appointed the service chief for the psychological health and traumatic brain injury consult liaison service. This was a multidisciplinary team tasked with providing psychological evaluations and traumatic brain injury screenings on all returning wounded warriors and coordinating mental health services for their family members as necessary. Dr. Grow's last tour of duty was teaching psychology to the Midshipmen at the US Naval Academy. In addition to his teaching responsibility, Dr. Grow maintained his clinical skills treating clients in the student counseling center and the mental health clinic. In 2013, he opened a part-time private practice in Sykesville. In April of 2014, he opened a full time private practice in Westminster.

Welcome to my website and my practice. About twenty years ago, I joined the military to see the world and it brought me all the way to Maryland. This was fortunate because this is where I am raising a family and am happy to call home. I feel honored that you have considered me to help you through this time of your life. Please feel free to complete the contact information and I will contact you shortly.
