Momentum Counseling helps individuals 16+ to overcome depression, anxiety, body-image issues, and trauma.

I have over 10 years of experience guiding individuals and families toward positive mental health outcomes as an outpatient therapist, crisis counselor, and school-based clinician. I also have 5 years of experience as a fitness professional to safely incorporate individualized movement into clients’ treatment plans.

I’m Mary Feamster, LPC, the founder and owner of Momentum Counseling. After a decade of work in the field of mental health, I followed my dream of opening a practice that offers high quality, evidence-based mental health treatment.

I’ve found that my clients benefit greatly from getting outside, being creative, and moving during sessions, so I take a creative approach to ” talk” therapy. I want to help you resolve anxiety, depression, body-image issues, and trauma to achieve a healthier, more satisfying future. My ultimate goal is to help clients achieve recovery and life satisfaction to the point that therapy is no longer necessary.

I’ve pursued advanced training in EMDR, CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Suicide Intervention, and Eating Disorder Treatment in order to provide high quality, evidence-based care. I obtained my Bachelors Degree in Sociology from the University of Virginia and a Masters in Counseling from Appalachian State University. I’m fully licensed as an LPC in Virginia.
