Sarah McLillard, LCSW is the Clinical Director for Outpatient Services.

“I am not perfect. I am messy and forgetful, and my kids sometimes wear dirty clothes. I am a mother, wife, friend, and therapist. I believe fully in the inherent enoughness of each individual I work with and that you have everything you already need to live your fullest life. I feel blessed by those that allow me to be a part of their journey. I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). I got my undergraduate and graduate degrees at VCU. I have been working for over 15 years in a variety of mental health settings including day treatment, residential, in home, and outpatient. I work with all ages and I have been trained in CBT, EMDR, EFFT, CFTTP, and Mindfulness based interventions.  I love to incorporate play, art, yoga, and meditation in my practice. I believe that mental health is not just about the mind, but the connection of the whole body and spirit”

“I am an energetic, creative, and open-minded therapist. I view therapy as an opportunity for individuals to deepen their understanding of themselves. I am passionate about creating a safe space for this exploration that fosters self-empowerment, self-love, and a sense of curiosity. I firmly believe that we are all the experts of our own experience, and I collaborate with each client to intentionally shape our work together to reflect their unique strengths. I believe in the importance of the mind-body connection, and my sessions frequently encourage active and creative participation on the part of my clients.

Mary Catherine “MC” Jessee, Resident in Counseling is a Therapist for Outpatient Services

“”If you are reading this, you’ve already taken that first leap to taking control of your life. You’ve probably thought “there’s got to be more to life than this; I need to find a way to get out; I’m so tired of feeling this way.” Take a minute to recognize that you have made a choice to bring back joy in your life. I am here to travel alongside you on your journey, offering genuine compassion, empathy, listening and understanding. The single most important aspect of counseling is developing a genuine, human connection. We will spend time developing and caring for our connection as you learn to be kind to yourself and practice radical self-compassion. I received my masters at William and Mary in Clinical Mental Health Counseling, and I am especially interested in creative counseling approaches (music, art, dance, etc.) that help you express and process your inner world. I use meditation and spirituality practices to help you connect to a higher purpose, to awaken fully to the small joys in everyday life and to learn the art of equanimity (staying calm in tough situations). I work with all types of clients, but I particularly love working with adolescents, young adults and LGBTQIA+ folks. If you think we would work well together, I’m just one message away.”

Kevin Jefferson, Resident in Counseling is a Therapist for Outpatient Services.

“I am an extremely passionate, enthusiastic, professional, and supportive therapist. As a Virginia State University Alumni, I have over 8 years of experience working directly with individuals who have been incarcerated, managing depression, anxiety, substance abuse and anger management. Family re-unification and pre-teen/adolescent life transitions are also among other areas of comfort. I have experience using various treatment modalities to fit my client’s needs, with CBT and person-centered treatments most utilized. I am a diehard San Francisco 49ers fan and love spending quality time with my family, working out and improving my self-care. I look forward to supporting my clients on their path to healing”

Anna Williams, Resident in Counseling is a Therapist for Outpatient Services.

“I am an easy going, reserved person with a fun and humorous side. My passion is to help clients go from pain to freedom through the counseling journey as I have done in my personal life. Believe me, it is not easy, but in the end the journey is well worth it. I acquired a dual bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Equine Studies (horses) from William Woods University, and a master’s degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Regent University. From Regent University, I also hold two certificates: Trauma, and Marriage and Family Counseling. I have received training in CBT, PCT, Existentialism, Gestalt Therapy, EMDR, ACT, Narrative Therapy, TF-CBT, DBT, Mindfulness, and Spiritual Integration. I use the mind, body, spirit approach of Existentialism, CBT, and Health Psychology to meet clients where they are at and serve as a guide towards a better life. I work with ages 16 and up, elderly, couples/families, and people with disabilities of all types. In my office, I have a Service Dog for my disability named Amara. She helps me help clients, and when requested, helps clients help themselves. I help people who need a service dog embark on that journey as well. It is such a blessing to partner with clients in their journey and share in their life’s experiences.”
