MENTAL HEALTH CLINICIAN
Shannon Graves, M.A., RC (Resident in Counseling)
One of the bravest choices you can make is the active decision to understand your own story. You don't have to feel stuck, and often all you need is to be heard and validated. My experience has allowed me to work with a wide variety of therapeutic issues and I enjoy guiding individuals toward overall recovery and wellness.
My expertise is in working with adults who live with addiction, trauma, the LGBTQ+ community, anxiety and depression. I am also experienced in working with those who live with mood disorders (e.g., Bipolar disorder), Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), personality disorders (including borderline personality disorder), eating disorders, and need help navigating major life transitions.
I have a collaborative, inviting style and embrace a person-centered, trauma-informed approach to encourage personal growth, confidence, empowerment, and mindfulness. I have a profound passion for helping individuals who are motivated to create positive internal change, and my approach integrates a range of modalities based on individual need. If you feel ready to embrace the challenge of improving your internal experience, I encourage you to take the next step and reach out to me. I would be honored to take this journey of growth with you and help you discover the tools you already have.
I have a Master’s Degree in Counseling with a concentration in psychological disorders and substance abuse from The George Washington University and have been working as a therapist since 2017. My primary on-site supervisor is Jessica MacNair, LPC, and I am also being supervised by Dr. Janet Beauregard, PhD, LPC, CSAC, CSAT.
I am not in-network with insurance but provide superbills for out-of-network reimbursement. Depending on your mental health coverage, most plans allow you to apply for reimbursement using the billing statement I provide on a monthly basis.
I am best reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, but can also be reached by call/text at (703) 829-6418. I look forward to meeting you!
