More about me

Licensing: LPC
Years in Practice: 10

My name is Lisa O'Bryan, and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Virginia. I earned a Bachelor of Science (BS) in Psychology at the University of Virginia. I continued on to earned a Masters of Education (MSEd) in Counseling and Psychotherapy at Old Dominion University. I currently own a private practice called Grace Covenant Counseling & Psychotherapy.

I believe in the potential of people to heal and have the life that they deserve. I work with individuals, couples, families, adolescents, and children with a variety of emotional and behavioral issues, providing services that span from therapy for depression and grief counseling to parenting support, couples and individual counseling. I believe in being in the moment with each client, providing a comfortable and safe therapeutic environment to promote personal growth. It is important to understand a person's social and family background and how those affect their daily life and functioning.

I strive to assist individuals in changing negative thoughts (cognitions) and behaviors to more positive alternatives. I offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each client's individual needs to help attain the growth they are striving for. I believe that everyone has a story to tell. Counseling helps you understand your past so that you can write your future. I strive to help all of my patients understand where they have been, what has worked and not worked for them, and choose their future path.

I look forward to working with 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.

Lisa is very caring and kind ! She listens well. She cares deeply!

B.R.·Jun 21, 2022


Lisa is exactly what you'd hope to find in a therapist. Empathetic, has a whole toolbox of skills and techniques to tackle problems, and helps you snap back into reality when needed. So very grateful to find and work with Lisa on some specific issues around grief - she's been a balm.

Lisa O'Bryan was very nice and supportive. She talked a good bit more than she listened which did not personally work for me but she did it in a way that I'm sure would be great for others.

Lisa gets right to the issue. I appreciate how straightforward she is. I don’t feel like I’m wasting any time at all. It’s been incredibly helpful!

K.R.·Mar 15, 2022


I'm lucky to have a counselor/client relationship with Lisa. She asks the right questions to help me focus on what it is that I'm missing when life becomes a bear sometimes. I'm thankful for her support and skill.

Lisa was helping me and then my son killed himself so now Lisa is helping me with the loss of my son. Lisa is very understanding.

J.A.·Mar 17, 2020


I've only been with Lisa for two weeks now, but I feel very comfortable with her. She is very receptive and encouraging. Her advice is helpful and having her is a huge support. I'm really looking forward to the outcomes of working with her to better my mental health.

Extremely good, listens carefully and picks up things of importance and gives neat strategies

B.H.·Jul 08, 2019


I haven't been with Lisa for very long but she makes me feel understood and safe and like I can talk to her about anything. I really appreciate her.

K.A.·Jun 02, 2019


I really like Lisa. She responds in a timely manner & is able to understand my issues & verify them with me through reflective listening. She has helped me to challenge my negative thinking & she has given me coping skills to help when my anxiety is high. I definitely would recommend Lisa as a counselor.

S.U.·May 28, 2019


I like talking to Lisa because she really takes the time to help me make sense of my thoughts and feelings. She also has some really productive ideas to help me cope with my anxieties. I wish I could keep her as my therapist on better help but we've moved to another state. But I'd definitely recommend her to anyone who needs a therapist in VA!!!

M.E.·Mar 25, 2019


I really like Lisa! She gives great support to me and advice/feedback on my situation. She helps me think out the box a little and also gives that support and advice that I can’t get from close friends or family who have biased opinions of my situation.

T.Y.·Mar 12, 2019


I have been working with Lisa O'Bryan for one week now and this is the best experience I have ever had with a therapist. Lisa is absolutely fantastic and responsive when it means the most. Even checks in when she has not heard from me. I cannot say enough good things about the service and especially about this counselor in particular.

S.O.·Feb 25, 2019


She cuts through the confusion to the source with such clarity and gives easy simple advice to follow that actually works. But also understands that sometimes you just need someone to talk to and you end up figuring it out all by yourself along the way.
