Dr. Denise Hall

(PhD)

About Me

I am a Licensed Clinical Psychologist licensed in Virginia with over 23 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 five 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!

Written by M.A. on Jul 21, 2021 after counseling with Denise for 3 weeks on issues concerning stress, anxiety, and self esteem

Dr. Hall is amazing. She made me feel comfortable very quickly in our first session. She is very compassionate, understanding and professional. I feel a great rapport with her and I trust her. She allows me to open up to her in a judgement free space. In our sessions I feel that she completely understands what is going on in my mind and reassures me that everything I am going through is normal. I feel supported, listened to and understood by Dr. Hall and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for support.
