About Us

Hello and welcome!  We ​are Sarah and Maria and we are so excited you are here.  We have been a part of the Hampton Roads mental health community for over 15 years, serving in inpatient, outpatient, in home and partial hospitalization settings.  After working together for over a decade, we decided we wanted to do things our way!  We believe that everyone deserves a chance to love the life they have and have created an environment to help you get there.   

We have built a caring team of genuine and authentic providers.  Our goal is to provide treatment as unique as you and your situation.  Whether you need talk therapy, art therapy, skills development, substance use treatment or medication management, we are here to help.  We believe in investing in others so they can become the best version of themselves.  

Dragonfly Counseling and Consulting was founded on five principles:

  • Non-judgement: We're here to make you feel accepted, welcomed, and safe in sharing your story with us, no matter what that might be.

  • Empowerment: Together, we'll work on developing your abilities and magnifying your strengths.

  • De-stigmatization: Therapy is for everyone. End of story!

  • Authenticity:  We believe in transparency and connecting with you by being our down-to-earth, authentic selves. We're honest with you, because we see you as the amazing human you are, not the problem you're experiencing. With a mix of professionalism, compassion, humor, and our personalities, you'll be talking with a real person, with training and knowledge, who connects with you on a human level.

  • Strengths-based: You are not your problem and you are not defined by your struggle. We don't believe in pathologizing your experiences and making you feel "abnormal." Our goal is to help you identify your strengths and build you up to be the best version of you that you want to be!
