Events in Northern Virginia
Sage House offers workshops, classes and community events throughout the year. We frequently collaborate with local business, non-profits and schools to provide educational events at minimal to no-cost to participants. Our mission is to bring awareness and resources to communities in need. For children, teens and families, this includes schools, camps, pediatrician offices and clubs. For perinatal women, this includes hospitals, OBGYN offices as well as local Labor and Delivery units. While the mental health and research communities strive to bring the latest knowledge and support to those who need it most, it is not always easy to make sure we are reaching the most vulnerable. Our workshops and corporate events for adults aim to provide participants with meaningful experiences and useful tools to help increase self-awareness, promote curiosity and generate greater levels of self- compassion. For children, teens and families our events look to provide a place of support, understanding and tool building. For parents we offer workshops that focus on some of the most challenging aspects of parenthood and share the latest tools and insider tips from our expert clinicians. For individuals going through the pregnancy journey and entering parenthood, we offer events and support groups that allow for education and connection to others in order to build a more solid support network. Below are detailed descriptions of our events and community offerings as well as links to register and for more information.

Northern Virginia Women’s Circle
Somewhere between a support group and a workshops, our women’s circle offers participants a place to explore identity, deepen self-acceptance and compassion and connect to other likeminded women. We emphasize the connection between mind and body and use art as well as mindfulness throughout the gatherings. Sage House clinician, Kelley Kuchinov, MA, ATR-BC guides the circle and provide a warm, welcoming atmosphere for women to come together, share and be heard.
