Jessica MacNair
Jessica MacNairMA, LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) & Owner of Falls Church Wellness Center
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, with over 15 years of clinical experience, as well as the founder & owner of Falls Church Wellness Center. With empathy and compassion, I will help you grow into a healthier person while using a combination of therapeutic techniques in my practice.

My therapeutic style is interactive, empathetic and direct, and I will empower you to make healthier choices through a variety of techniques. My therapy sessions may focus on self-esteem improvement, anxiety, depression (including postpartum depression/anxiety & perinatal mood disorders), eating disorders, anger, ADHD, infertility, parenting issues and addictions. I also work with grief and loss (including pregnancy & child loss), sexuality and gender (LGBTQ) and coping with relationship crisis and infidelity.

I have extensive experience helping clients with behavioral addictions, and am considered one of the leading specialists in the Washington DC area (a behavioral addiction is a condition in which a person is dependent on a behavior; sex, gambling, pornography, Internet, overeating, shopping/overspending). Another specialty is working with clients with postpartum/perinatal mood disorders and I’m featured on several websites: DMV Resource Guide as well as PostpartumVA. I am also an active volunteer with Give An Hour, an organization for mental health clinicians to provide therapy for military personnel and their families.

I have been licensed as an LPC by the State Board of Virginia since 2008 and am also an approved supervisor to provide clinical supervision for counseling residents and interns.

Insurance information:
As a Licensed Professional Counselor, my professional services qualify for reimbursement under most insurance plans as an out-of-network provider. However, due to my commitment to confidentiality, I do not participate as an in-network provider with health insurance panels (*I am certified as a TRICARE Mental Health provider) . Depending on your mental health coverage, most plans (Blue Cross, CareFirst, Aetna, Magellan, United, Cigna, and many others) allow you to apply for reimbursement using the billing statement I provide you on a monthly basis.

Michael Searby
Michael SearbyMA, LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor)
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor with extensive experience treating addictions, depression, communication/relationship issues, grief and loss, and trauma.

As a Professional Counselor, I am privileged to be able to share in my clients’ journeys and to help them overcome difficulties in what ways I am capable. Years of practice have showed me that when we are faced with overwhelming struggles we must first acknowledge their existence, and only then can we reach for the help necessary to find achievable solutions. In the safety of a grounded, knowledgeable, encouraging, and insight-oriented counseling experience I believe this is possible.

I believe in the importance of identifying problematic thinking/ behaviors, building awareness, and developing successful behaviors that bring sustainable change. Mental health issues and addiction affect everything in a person’s life: relationships, mind, body, and soul. If you are open to self-exploration you can find answers with help.

My education has a strong foundation in classical philosophy and literature. I am a married father of four children and incorporate this experience into my work with couples, parenting, and adolescence. I also have personal experience with disabilities and so provide a discount when working with clients facing these difficulties.
