Great Falls Therapy


Welcome to Sage House Counseling and Art Therapy. We proudly serve the Great Falls, Virginia area and the surrounding Fairfax and Loudoun county communities. Our office is conveniently located a quick walk from the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station, which is on the Silver Line. While we have plenty of parking, clients may also take advantage of public transportation options or even the W&O trail which is adjacent to our facilities.

At Sage House we know the importance of being experts in our field. We bring our extensive knowledge, training and passion to the work we do with our clients. We are one of the only practices in the Northern Virginia area to offer art therapy, sand tray therapy and play therapy in addition to traditional counseling. We see children as young as three years of age along with teens and adults and provide parental coaching and family therapy. Our clinicians are also specially trained in perinatal mental health. We support pregnant and postpartum women who are at risk of or experiencing mood and anxiety disorders.

Sage House providers offer individual therapy as well as group therapy, workshops and a women’s empowerment circle. Our clients enjoy our office and waiting room spaces, which offer a tranquil and calming space. Whether you are a parent waiting for a child who is in-session or an adult client, we strive to make you feel welcomed and cared for. Our office offers complimentary hot tea, coffee and healthy snacks for your enjoyment.

We also know life is busy and we want therapy to work for you. This is why Sage House clinicians offer all of our adult (and some teen clients) online therapy, as needed. Our live video portal is secure and HIPAA compliant to ensure your privacy protection while getting support from the comfort of your own home.

Great Falls Therapy Services

Sage House Counseling and Art Therapy specializes in providing individuals and families the mental health support they need. The number of households with children in Great Falls is well above the average for the state of Virginia as a whole. (A notable 91% of Great Falls households have children). Local Great Falls parents have come to trust Sage House with the mental health needs of their children, teens and family. Our highly trained team of clinicians provide a comprehensive assessment by beginning all treatment with weekly therapy. An assessment and treatment plan is then created after 5-6 sessions, which is then shared with the parents.

Our practice also focuses on supporting mothers and their partners in the journey to parenthood. Our clinicians have specialized training in mood disorders and anxiety affecting women in pregnancy and postpartum. As your family grows, Sage House will match you with the right perinatal therapist and postpartum therapist to support your needs. By seeking the care you need, you, your baby and entire family will benefit. We also host perinatal support groups, a women’s empowerment circle and offer parental coaching for new as well as seasoned parents. We know that pregnancy and the time following the birth of a child can also make coming into a therapy office challenging. For this reason, we offer our clients the convenience of online therapy. Our secure online portal offers face to face video therapy which is private and HIPAA-compliant.

Great Falls Counseling and Art Therapy

Art therapy can be especially effective for children, as their language skills and ability to communicate verbally may be less developed. However, we also know the creative therapies can be extremely helpful for teens and adults as well. Even our most articulate adult clients report greater growth, insight and positive overall change when art therapy and/or sand tray therapy has been integrated into their treatment plan. Art therapy allows clients to access subconscious feelings, thoughts and memories as well as help provide safety and distance from overwhelming feelings and traumatic experiences. In general, we notice more breakthroughs occur when clients of all ages introduce art therapy and sand tray into their sessions rather than when using talk therapy alone.

Sage House is also dedicated to providing community outreach and support. One of our specialties is on-site corporate events, which focus on group dynamics, team building, renewal and wellness. Whether your team is looking to foster more cohesion, connect in a new and fun way or “reset” after a busy season, our knowledgeable staff at Sage House can help. We’ll customize a program to meet the needs of your team. No art experience is required. Creativity and openness to new experiences are encouraged. Sage House provides all the necessary art supplies and materials. Click here for more details.
