The Full Story

About Us

Neutral Ground Counseling Group, LLC is a private mental health counseling practice in Northern Virginia.  The term "neutral ground" is ubiquitous with New Orleans, LA, where our founder was born and raised. Historically, it is a place where disputing parties meet on "neutral ground" to do business or settle disputes. Thus, we incorporate this idea of a neutral ground in our practice and strive to provide our clients with a therapeutic space that is free of judgment and negativity. It is a place where we meet the client where they are; not where others expect them to be. 


We strive to provide the highest quality of mental health care possible. The principles guiding our practice come from the American Counseling Association's Ethical Codes. We are committed to respecting the diversity, in all forms, of our clients. Through a wellness perspective, we are dedicated to supporting the emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health of our clients. We offer referrals to trusted providers to assist our clients in obtaining the complete supportive care that they seek in the professional services that we do not provide.

Our Mission

We believe that people are the ultimate authority of themselves, but are also capable of growing through the process of self-discovery. We can all learn more about ourselves with the right tools and the right supportive care. 

Our mission is to help people bring meaningful and lasting change through the process of self-discovery with the use of psychotherapeutic counseling and psychoeducational interventions. 

Our Promise

Finding the right therapist is similar to dating. It may take a few sessions to see if your therapist is the right fit for you. Our promise to you is that we won't get offended if you decide we're not the right fit. If it is something we can change that will help the therapeutic environment, we'll do our best to do so. If not, we'll do our best to offer referrals that might be a better fit for you.
