Hello! My name is Sarah May and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, licensed in the State of Virginia. I have provided mental health and behavioral health services over the past 20 years. I do have an eclectic approach to therapy, meeting individuals where they are on their journey, but the primary theory that I draw experience and motivation with is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Trauma Informed Care. I am aware that each person seeking Counseling services is unique and I am open and ready to assist through individualized, person-centered services to ensure those seeking services are invested and involved in their treatment! I am here to listen and provide support for you.

Hi there! Let's sit and chat... Are you looking for a safe space to explore and organize your thoughts and feelings? Many people see therapy as a one-sided conversation, with little opportunity for interaction or getting to experience one another as real people. I can assure you our sessions will be as real as it gets! I want to help you achieve whatever solutions and life changes you are looking for. We'll work on building trust and a sense of safety, using open communication and humor, to identify how we can improve on your already existing coping skills, supports, and knowledge. Although this process may be challenging, we will work to enjoy the process as much as possible, so you can experience yourself, your relationships, and your life in new ways. Simply put, I don't think therapy has to be a painful thing for you. Starting this step can be hard and I would love the opportunity to work with you on this journey. For Private Pay Clients: Individual Sessions: $120/hour Couple/Family Sessions: $150/hour **All couples and families are seen via private pay. This allows us to focus on the relationships in the room, rather than the diagnosis of an individual. **For those out of network, should you meet criteria for a diagnosis accepted by insurance companies, I can provide monthly superbills that you may submit to your insurance provider for potential reimbursement. Please note that the payments received by the insurance provider as reimbursement may not cover the full service fee and I cannot guarantee reimbursement.

I am a board-certified therapist in multiple states and over 20 years of counseling experience, with a proven success of reaching remission in Depression with my clients in one session; this is within the 95th percentile of clinicians measured. I am passionate about effecting change and helping work with people to achieve insight in order to gain maximum potential and reach their most desired visions and goals. I know personally and professionally, how difficult it is to get here and I am proud of your first step and commitment to change. I know I can be of valued support as we work together to reach success, insight, and overcome emotional and psychosocial stressors. A little more about me; I was born and raised in Florida. I did my undergraduate at Florida State University, and moved to Virginia to attend Eastern Virginia Medical School, where I studied clinical counseling and received my Master’s in Art Therapy. As a military spouse, we relocated many times, having to redevelop my career each duty station, which gave me a myriad of experiences with various populations. This has lead me to focus on occupational counseling and the effects of stress on our mental health. My passion for treatment is trauma and life experiences that lead us to feel fearful, unsafe, and saddened; sometimes with no explanation as to why we feel the way we do. I work with my client’s in a person-centered format with cognitive-behavioral underpinnings and psychoeducation to not only work through and build a better understanding of ourselves but the experiences and beliefs that built us and ways to endure and build resiliency to better manager those feelings so they are not as overwhelming in the future.
