Hello! My name is Sarah May and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, licensed in the State of Virginia. Prior to completing graduated school and becoming a licensed Counselor, I provided services in the Mental Health/Behavioral Health Services industry for 17 years. Over the past 17 years, I have gained experience in several different fields of counseling. I do have an eclectic approach to therapy, but the primary theory that I draw experience and motivation with is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as well as Trauma Informed Care. I am aware that each person seeking Counseling services is unique and I am open and ready to assist through individualized, person centered services to ensure those seeking services are invested and involved in services! I am here to listen and provide support for you. I have been privileged to provide services to adolescents and adults with a variety of presenting problems such as depression, anxiety, anger, trauma, phase of life changes, relationship issues, and many more.

I am available and looking forward to hearing from you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Sarah is an incredibly thoughtful, insightful, caring, and intelligent counselor. She makes me feel heard and understood, and even when she doesn’t initially understand something, she goes above and beyond to figure it out. I have had several therapist before her that I connected with, but Sarah is the first that I feel that I can truly share anything with and receive non-judgmental and insightful feedback from her. She’s given me a whole toolbox of coping skills that we’ve worked to tailor to my specific needs and she’s made me feel confident in my ability to independently manage my own mental health once I’m in a place to step away from actively seeing a counselor.

Sarah May is kind, understanding and insightful. Her patience and expertise has helped me learn so much about myself. I am forever grateful for her help.

Sarah was the second counselor I was matched with after requesting a switch from the first. Immediately I felt at ease with her. She walked me through a very dark time in my life and helped me make sense of my emotions. I’m convinced I wouldn’t have progressed as quickly as I did without Sarah’s help.

Sarah has been awesome. I stopped counseling a couple months ago and recently started again. I have confidence she will be just as helpful this go around.

I really like how Sarah replies back and how she listens to what I’m saying! I don’t get to write a lot of times but when I do, she replies in a timely manner!

Sarah was always kind and respectful and helped me find ways to think about things and open up whether it was through chat or through worksheets she was able to send me. It was nice to have a constant person to talk to who I thought was a great fit for me.

Sarah May has completely changed my idea of therapy and 110% cares about her patients. It's obvious that she wants to help in any way she can and checks in with me very often, especially when she hasn't heard from me in a while. I would recommend her to everyone I know if she had the capacity to take on the world.

She is really good at what she does. Every time I read her message, when I get the chance, I’m like holy crap she’s good!

B.R.·Feb 19, 2020


She has eased my mind in many ways, as well as validated some of my my emotions. Every session ends with me feeling better about things then yesterday. And she responds to my post every time I go to check.
