Barbara Darby, LPC

Barbara Darby is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in Virginia and holds a Masters of Science in Psychology from Nova Southeastern University. I have over 16 years of counseling experience working with adolescents, adults, couples, and families. I approach therapy using methods and techniques from Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Family Systems Theory, EMDR, Mindfulness Based Interventions, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy.

I believe counseling is a partnership to help you heal, change, and grow. This partnership is built on mutual trust and respect. My role is to provide a comfortable, safe, confidential place for us to meet, to bring the best of my professional training, and to listen to you with an open mind and open heart. I specialize in many different life challenges including life-transitions, career changes, anxiety, depression, spiritual problems, co-dependency, trauma, and addictions. I also enjoy working with military personnel, veterans and their families, as I am a military spouse myself and a veteran. I believe that counseling is a joint effort that involves both the training of the counselor and work with commitment on the part of the client. I also offer Supervision services to Residents in Professional Counseling who are working towards licensure in the state of Virginia.

I also worked in Dual Diagnosis Treatment Facilities and in Mental Health Case Management. I opened my Private Practice in 2012, and for the last 5 years has been helping my patients work on a variety of issues, specializing in trauma, domestic violence, depression and anxiety. I have been a trainer for other therapists for several years and has also served as an expert witness in court cases. My primary areas of treatment include :

  • Domestic Violence
  • PTSD/Trauma
  • Depression
  • Substance Use
  • Anxiety
  • Women’s issues

Lisa Cornelius, LCSW

My core belief: Healing and balance are not only possible, but are the result of counseling that respects every unique human experience while embarking on an introspective journey to uncover the unlimited potential and strengths of each person. While identifying together patterns of behavior that hinder balance, a new freedom and contentment is achieved.

I am passionate about providing a trusting therapeutic environment in which my clients will feel supported and confident in being who they are and expressing their innermost thoughts and emotion. I have been privileged to work with individuals from numerous ethnic, cultural, and religious backgrounds, addressing mental health concerns that are specific to each person’s life experience and interaction with the outside world. As a result, my cultural competency and an open-minded approach are central to my work as a therapist. My substantial experience working with the LGBTQ community, particularly with youth in the transitional process of sexuality, coming out and gender identity, has allowed me to develop a deep understanding of the interconnection of culture, religion and sexuality with environmental factors which informs one’s internal dialogue. As a therapist, my ultimate goal is to consistently provide a non-judgmental, open, and supportive therapeutic space in which each client can feel comfortable, safe and empowered as we embark on a journey together to facilitate a shift toward healing, growth and overall inner peace.

Specific Areas of interests include:

  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Mood Disorders
  • Relationship Concerns/Co -Dependency/Communication issues
  • LGBTQ Individuals/Couples/Family
  • Women's Issues
  • Self Esteem Concerns
  • Anger management/Behavior Modification
  • Life Coaching/Empowerment
  • Addressing Stress/Life Balance
