Meet Our Counselors

You're Not Alone - We're Here for You!

Margaret Capurso, M.S., NCC

mcapurso@thewashingtonhome.org | 301-560-6002

 

Margaret Capurso received a Masters degree in Pastoral Counseling at Loyola College in Baltimore. She is a Nationally Certified Counselor.

“It has been a privilege to offer grief and loss support in the Bereavement Department of The Washington Home & Community Hospices over the past 18 years. I have found that Companioning in Bereavement Care is a more accurate description of the varied support services we provide, as opposed to ‘counseling’ and ‘fixing’ problems. Companioning is about listening with the heart rather than analyzing with the head.”

Kumar Dixit, D.Min

Kumar Dixit has been an end-of-life advocate for many years.  He currently serves as the Bereavement Coordinator for The Washington Home & Community Hospices.  Prior to that, he has worked as a Chaplain in hospices, hospitals, and university settings. 

 

Kumar earned his bachelor’s degree from Columbia Union College (now Washington Adventist University) in Takoma Park, MD.  He completed his Master’s degree at La Sierra University (Riverside, CA) in Religion, with an emphasis in youth and family ministry.  He also earned his doctorate at Wesley Theological Seminary (Washington, DC) with an emphasis in Leadership Excellence.  Kumar has completed the required units through the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy, and is currently in the process of board certification. 

 

He is known for his compassionate understanding, and willingness to walk alongside individuals as they grieve the loss of a loved one.  You will often hear him say, “You are not alone in this journey.”  And oftentimes, Kumar won't be alone either -  you'll likely find him accompanied by his three-pound fluffy Maltipoo companion, Fifi. 

Robert "Bob" Uhrig, MA

ruhrig@thewashingtonhome.org | 301-560-6070

 

For nearly 15 years, Bob has been at the forefront of counseling and care for those suffering from a loss.  His focus as a Bereavement Counselor grew from his roles as a hospital chaplain and a pastor—roles he moved in to after more than 20 years as an educator and student counselor.

 

Bob holds degrees from Southwestern Adventist University and Andrews University, and is an attentively compassionate counselor trained through the College of Pastoral Supervision and Psychotherapy.

 

Bob knows the pain of personal loss. His heartfelt desire is to hear your story, understand where you are, and explore avenues of healing and growth.
