About

Momentum Counseling helps individuals 13+ to overcome depression, anxiety, body-image issues, and trauma.

I have over 8 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.

Training:
I’ve pursued advanced training in EMDR, CBT, Motivational Interviewing, Suicide Intervention, Eating Disorder Treatment, and Addiction 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.
