Dr. Denise Hall


About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist licensed in Virginia with over 20 years of experience working as a psychotherapist in several different settings. I have worked in schools, urban and rural areas, hospital settings, weight loss clinics, private practice and community mental health centers. I have worked in my current position as a Bariatric Psychologist, Licensed Clinical Psychologist for the past three years. Prior to working in a weight loss clinic, I worked in private practice seeing children, adolescents, couples, families and adults for thirteen years. I have experience working with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, career challenges, OCD, developmental disorders, self harm, cognitive disorders, behavioral disorders, grief, eating disorders, sexual identity concerns and ADHD. I have vast experience in psychological assessment/testing. I have also helped people who have experienced physical trauma or emotional abuse.

My counseling style is empathetic, strengths based, and interactive. I believe in treating anyone with respect, sensitivity, and compassion, and I don't believe in stigmatizing labels. My approach combines cognitive-behavioral, strengths based, psychodynamic, and dialectical behavioral therapy techniques. I will tailor our dialog and treatment plan to meet your unique and specific needs.

It takes courage to seek counseling for a more fulfilling and happier life and to take the first steps towards a change. If you are ready to take that step I am here to support and empower you.

I look forward to working with you!

Dr. Hall is a great professional and counselor, I truly appreciate her help. It has been super helpful with the tools she assigns. I am extremely grateful for them. I am starting to feel and see changes. I just would like more over the phone sessions than messaging sometimes.
