Venise Darisme, M.A. NCC, CCTP, CMHIMP, LPC
I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC) and Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) with BetterHelp. I am also a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and a Certified Mental Health Integrative Medicine Provider (CMHIMP). My CMHIMP training focused on Nutrition for Mental Health. Additionally, I am an EDIT Certified I- Eating Disorder Treatment Clinician. I have a Master of Arts degree in Pastoral Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Marymount University. Marymount University is ranked as the #1 Counseling program in Virginia on universities.com. for 2020. My Bachelor of Science degree is in Psychology with a minor in Biology from Mount St. Mary’s University. I have been in the Human Services field for over 10 years.
Over the years I have demonstrated myself to be a dedicated professional with education, experience, and skills in Individual Counseling, eating disorder treatment, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy, parent training, education counseling, career counseling, play therapy, pastoral counseling-spiritual/religious struggles, grief and loss, multicultural issues, substance abuse, depression, and anxiety. I particularly enjoy working with children, teens, and their families. I utilize a person centered therapeutic approach while employing behavioral, cognitive-behavioral, creative arts, play, and existential approaches.
My approaches have helped my teen clients with self-esteem, relationship issues, interpersonal communication, adjusting to a new school, and much more. The teenage years can be difficult, counseling can help teens get through these years with confidence. I am looking forward to working with Teen Counseling clients.

We appreciate all of your kindness, understanding and patience with our family. My son has improved and is learning new ways to cope with your assistance he has come a long way.
She’s the best!
She is great! She’s been really helpful in how I’m dealing with my traumas
I feel like I lucked out in getting matched with Venise. She’s extremely knowledgeable, understanding and personable. She’s offered a lot of great tips and exercises to help work through some personal growth. She’s also a great listener and is good in terms of following up on things I have expressed in past sessions.
She helped restore confidence in myself after experiencing grief post breakup. Overall she’s helped me “restore balance” and create a new chapter.
I would definitely recommend working with Venise.
She’s the best and understands autism
Venise is incredibly attentive, supportive, and diligent
Venise was able to make my first therapy experience a great and comfortable one. I was able to see substantial progress within a few months and reach my end goals. If I ever come to need therapy again, I will definitely reach out to her. She was respectful, made me feel comfortable, and listened to my concerns.
I am so impressed how great teen counseling is at matching clients to therapists. I was matched with Venise and she is exactly the type of professional I need to talk to and we get along great. She knows exactly what she is doing, offers useful and practical advice, and I feel incredibly comfortable with her. teen counseling has been great since the beginning.
She listens and makes sure you're heard, which is something I think anyone could use. She uses techniques I haven't used before and makes me feel comfortable in trying them out.
Venise is great! I really feel like she listens to what I am saying, and she helps me set realistic goals for myself. Because I was matched with her based on my answers when I signed up, what she has to say is really helpful to what I am going through. Should she be determined to be the best fit for what you are going through, you will not regret your time.
Venise is very kind, gentle and supportive. Definitely what I need to feel heard.
Venise is AMAZING. She's helped me see more clearly. She makes me feel comfortable and makes it so I know I can talk to her about everything. Even things that are buried down deep.
