Casey Sarafinas, LPC
Everyone has a story to tell and I have a desire to listen and guide you through your narrative towards a well-balanced, healthier and happier life. We all go through struggles. Whether you’re dealing with symptoms of depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, body image, relationship issues, or challenges with your career, parenting, or adjusting to major life changes, I will work with you to regain hope and create positive change.
As the Clinical Director of The Wellness Connection LLC, I lead collaborative efforts among our team of professionals with a diversity of expertise, approaches, and backgrounds to improve the overall care of our clients. A Virginia Board-Approved Supervisor, I also provide supervision for Residents in Counseling.
With over fifteen years experience as a Licensed Professional Counselor, my first goal is to create a sense of safety within the therapeutic relationship where clients can feel heard and understood without judgment. I draw upon many counseling theories and use creativity and humor in my practice. I think it’s important to meet clients where they are and help them stretch just outside their comfort zone towards growth.
A former counselor in the high school setting, I have extensive experience working with teens and college students. I hold a special place in my heart for single parents and helping to empower them because I understand the difficulties in parenting with limited resources and support. I also enjoy working with couples and families.
Communication is key and I truly believe that when people are open to learning new ways to talk with their loved ones, troubled relationships can heal, intimacy can be enhanced, and people feel more fulfilled in their partnerships with others. Help is available. You are not alone.
