Sarahbeth 
Spasojevich

Therapy Intern

January 2022 - December 2022

Sarahbeth believes we all need some extra support for the complexities of life.  You deserve a safe place to have your story heard and understood. Her particular area of interest is family and relationship dynamics, and helping clients relate with more authentic connection and less strife. Sometimes an outside person can help us re-calibrate the narratives of our gridlock.  Sarahbeth also holds trauma-supportive certification, and can explore with you the ways that past experiences can shape your current struggles. 

 

She graduates this year from William and Mary’s Clinical Mental Health Master’s program.  Previously, she’d been a college English instructor for over 20 years and holds an MBA from Regis University and a Master’s in Literature from VCU.

Kellyn McRory

Therapy Intern

February 2022 - December 2022

Kellyn understands that the first and most important goal for counseling is building a warm, genuine, and safe relationship with clients. After completing a degree at the University of Mary Washington, she soon realized that her calling was in mental health counseling. While working in the behavioral health field, Kellyn is a graduate student at Walden University and a Certified Trauma Support Specialist. 

 

She believes that our lived experiences shape who we are, the stories we tell ourselves, and the emotional, mental, and behavioral patterns we find ourselves stuck in. Kellyn takes a trauma-informed approach to an integrative practice; one that will meet you where you are and uses various orientations to honor that. Kellyn’s interests include self-acceptance work, mindfulness practices, trauma work, and relationships. Together, Kellyn will help you rewrite old stories and guide you toward a more fulfilling life.
