Lisa Muller (she/her)

Who I Work With:

I enjoy working with adults, teenagers, and children. I specialize in anxiety disorders, depression, trauma, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, ADHD, anger issues, substance abuse, relationship issues, grief, multicultural issues, immigration, self-esteem issues, and mood disorders to include bipolar disorders. I received my Bachelors at the University of Mary Washington in Fredericksburg, Virginia and my Masters in Social Work, Clinical/Mental Health track at the Silberman School of Social Work at Hunter College.

My Treatment Philosophy: 

If you allow me the opportunity, I will guide you on a journey to feel purposeful, contentment, and confident.  I aim to empower you but will also be realistic. It’s ok if you’re not felling ok. I understand that there will be days when it rains and days when it storms on the inside of our minds and bodies.  In our work together, I hope to give you the tools to guide you through those days; the tools to help you feel prepared and confident to weather any storm.  My priority is to provide you with a safe, non-judgmental space where you can be your authentic self while feeling validated and ultimately empowered to confront the challenges in your life.  I am already proud that you have taken the step to find a therapist and I am honored that you are considering me.  I will make it my priority to share and teach you the techniques and interventions to live the most peaceful life you deserve.

My Treatment Theories and Approaches:

I am experienced in Harm Reduction, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Group Therapy, Culturally Sensitive, Family Systems, Person-Centered, Psychoanalytic, Reality Therapy, Strength-Based, Structural Family Therapy, Trauma Focused, Play Therapy, and Crisis intervention.

What Therapy Looks Like in My Office:

I believe it is critical for my clients to find comfort and reassurance in our sessions.  I do not want therapy to feel like a chore. I want you to see it as a positive and healing part of your day.  I am working for you.  It is my mission to make this time your time.  You are in charge and should use our time together as you see fit.  I will always take your lead.

Why I Became a Therapist:

As an undergraduate student, I witnessed many of my peers struggling with a myriad of issues – both big and small.  Many were better able to manage their everyday lives through talk therapy – which I believe is crucial, especially in those emerging adulthood years.  It was during this important time in my own life, that I started to identify a strong passion to help those in need of guidance and self-fulfillment.  We all deserve a strong outlet to help ensure a happy and fulfilled life.  It gives me a great sense of purpose to help build those supports.

My Life Outside Work:

Personal Life:

I moved to Virginia from New York, so the number one thing I do every day is stay connected to my family. I know what it’s like to have loved ones who live in a different part of the county. I grew up in an Italian-Puerto Rican household where I developed a passion for cooking. I enjoy practicing self care, cleaning, doing makeup, listening to music, spending time with friends, and working out.

Seth Labovitz (he/him)
Counselor
In-person in Charlotte, North Carolina

Seth Labovitz (he/him)

Psychotherapy is a kind of help in which the patient or client engages with a professional trained in the science and art of understanding and alleviating human suffering. As a Psychologist and psychotherapist, I stand in the belief that I don’t do anything “to” but rather “with” and “for” others – good therapy is collaborative - and that one must avoid a ‘one size fits all’ approach.

I believe one of the most powerful tools we have in life is our voice. When we are silenced and not allowed the opportunity to express ourselves it can result in depression and anxiety. Over time it will impair our self-efficacy and value...

Brittany Flora (she/her)

My role is to be side-by-side with you navigating these complex emotions and situations so that you can find the power in your voice, your body, and your strengths. My goal as a counselor is to create a positive, and reassuring environment where you can be you with all the quirks that uniquely make you – you. I believe that you are the expert of your experience, you have the answers inside of you, and we are together on this journey to unlock what is getting in your way. It is my hope to help you find strategies to interrupt patterns that are no longer serving you and create healthier paths to allow you to “be the change you wish to see.” If you choose to let me be a part of this journey with you, it will be an honor because I recognize it is hard to trust again when there have been letdowns.

Mary Davies (she/her)
Clinical Supervisor, Lead Counselor
In-person in Chesapeake, Virginia and online throughout Virginia

Mary Davies (she/her)

I believe in the therapeutic process and consider it to consist of many forms. Each person is so unique and has their own story to tell in their own unique way and in their own time. The one thing I say to my clients in every first session, is, it starts with you. You choosing to show up to your appointment, you choosing to seek out support, encouragement, advice, a listening ear.
Denise Simpson (she/her)
Counselor
Online throughout Virginia

Denise Simpson (she/her)

When one seeks out therapy, I believe they are saying that they want a change. Sometimes we need someone to listen and ask questions so that the processing of thoughts and feelings can be done in a nonjudgmental way. The answers come from within and I am just a guide along the healing journey.
