Our Story

The Practice 


Sage House Counseling & Art Therapy was born out of need for holistic mental health support in the Reston, Virginia. We know the unique challenges families face and the need to be supported with effective, evidenced-based approaches. That is why we use a combination of traditional talk therapy, art therapy, play therapy and mindfulness. Our goal is to provide each adult, child, teen and family with new skills and insights, allowing for lasting change and greater wellbeing. 


Sage House Counseling & Art Therapy is a place for individuals and families to find a community of support.  We feel that no one needs to  navigate life's biggest challenges alone. We are here to partner, advocate and align with the unique needs of you and your family. 


The Perinatal Wellness Program


Our practice also offers a unique specialty of Perinatal Wellness, providing focused attention on the unique challenges women and their partners face around conception,  pregnancy and motherhood. We created Sage House Counseling & Art Therapy to be a place to heal in community. A place where women and their partners can talk about their experiences without judgment or expectation. 


At Sage House, we are dedicated to creating space for women because we know what it’s like to live in a world that often speaks louder than our hearts. And we’re here to help you through it all, because contrary to what we’re told, we don’t have to do it alone.

Authenticity

We’re not perfect. And neither are you. And that’s okay. We celebrate what your version of wellbeing looks like instead of fitting you into a predetermined box. 

Joy

Therapy doesn’t always have to be heavy and serious. It can be light and playful and funny, and we take pride in cultivating an atmosphere of joy amidst transformative healing.
