McLean Therapy

McLean Therapy


Sage House Counseling and Art Therapy serves McLean, VA and is walking distance to the Wiehle-Reston East Metro Station on WMATA’s Silver Line. We provide ample parking at our Sage House offices, but clients can also utilize public transportation options or even the W&O trail which is adjacent to our facilities.

Sage House provides individual therapy, family therapy, and group therapy to those in the McLean, VA area. Our clients include children, teens, adults and families. We serve clients in our professional and serene offices and waiting room spaces. Whether you are a parent waiting for a child who is in-session or an adult client relaxing before or after an appointment your comfort is important to us.

Sage House is one of the only mental health practices in the area whose clinicians specialize in art therapy, sand tray therapy, and play therapy in additional to traditional talk therapy. We believe through the integration of the creative therapies our clients are able to unlock growth areas and insight that talk therapy can often miss. We notice breakthroughs tend to occur when adult therapy clients introduce art therapy and sand tray into their sessions rather than when using talk therapy alone.

McLean Therapy Services

At Sage House, your family matters to us. 80% of McLean households are families (well above the Virginia average of 67%) and Sage House is here to support your adolescent therapy and child therapy needs. We begin with sessions once a week with your child and follow-up with parent meetings. Art therapy can be especially useful for children, as their vocabulary and self-awareness may be less developed. However, even the most articulate and seasoned adults find art therapy beneficial when incorporated in their individual therapy sessions. Art therapy allows us to access subconscious themes that permeate our daily lives and can be more easily uncovered on paper, canvas, or sand tray.

We also specialize in providing the highest quality perinatal mental health support. Our clinicians have received specialized training in mood and anxiety disorders effecting pregnant and postpartum women. We offer a compassionate and accepting space to explore feelings and thoughts around this life transition. Sage House will pair you with the right postpartum therapist and perinatal therapist to support the needs of your growing family. Furthermore, we host perinatal support groups, women’s empowerment circles as well as specialized parental support and coaching. Our clinicians are experienced at working with our clients to make therapy not only effective, but also convenient. We know that as a parent or an expecting mother coming into the therapy office is not always easy or possible. For some clients, online therapy throughout secure, private, HIPAA compliant system offers the benefits of therapy from the comfort of their home.

If you are new to the McLean area and seeking care for yourself and your family the highest rated hospital in the area is Virginia Hospital Center in Arlington (VHC). In the last ten years VHC has received the most positive patient marks for communication, cleanliness, pain management, and overall rating and hospital recommendations. Alternative, yet highly ranked options include Inova Women’s Hospital, which offers a birthing center, provides a variety of OBGYN options as well as general practitioners.

McLean Counseling and Art Therapy

Whether your therapy session is onsite in Reston, or you are using our online therapy video platform, we encourage self-care and being mindful of the small pleasures throughout the day. At our office you will find complimentary hot teas, coffee and snacks for you and your family. Sage House facilities also offer bathrooms on each floor for your convenience.

McLean is also home to excellent library systems, which offer a wealth of resources. The Dolley Madison Library, which is a part of the system of Fairfax County Libraries, hosts a series of events for you and your growing family on a rotating basis including story-time, gym activities, and music. The Parent Resource Center, conveniently located in McLean, also offers families and parents resources and workshops.

Beyond families, we also serve businesses via on-site corporate events focusing on team building, group dynamics, and renewal & wellness. If your team is working in over-drive more often than you’d like or just looking to rejuvenate its collective energy, Sage House can help. We’ll develop a custom two-hour program for your team and provide all art supplies and materials. Click here for more details.
