Licensed Professional Counselor, M.A., Ed.M.
Sometimes we feel overwhelmed, stuck, wounded. Sometimes it feels like we are at odds with ourselves and everyone around us. Nothing feels right. Therapy can help. As a therapist, I am committed to creating a safe and compassionate space where my clients feel heard, seen, and understood. I collaborate with clients on navigating change, processing trauma and grief, exploring identity and relationships, improving coping skills for anxiety and depression, developing deeper insight, and creating meaning. I will meet you with empathy and support - not judgment. We are all resilient and have the capacity to heal and thrive.
ALL ABOUT EVE
I’m Eve Kagan, a Licensed Professional Counselor based in Fredericksburg, Virginia. With my background as a theatre artist and educator, I see therapy as a collaboration. I am dedicated to helping my clients transform old stories of shame and embrace their true worth. I integrate art, mindfulness, and trauma-sensitive yoga to awaken the imagination and mind/body connection. My approach is trauma-informed, LGBTQ+ affirmative, and social justice oriented.
All are welcome in my practice!

In therapy you can process past pain, address present problems, and shift the patterns that are no longer serving you. I employ a range of evidence-supported counseling techniques to help you find clarity, balance, and relief.
A Good Fit
The key to effective therapy is finding a good fit between therapist and client. During a free initial phone consultation we will explore whether we are a good match to address the concerns bringing you to therapy. Choosing a therapist is deeply personal: it is essential that you feel safe and believe that I can help you. If it doesn't feel right I will be happy to refer you to another practitioner.
Therapy is your time. The path we take will be determined by your unique needs. I respect my clients as individuals and appreciate the impact of various aspects of identity on the problems they face. Our sessions together will explore new perspectives on old problems as we move closer to your goals.
EMDR & Trauma-Sensitive Yoga
I have specialized training in evidence-based trauma therapies, including EMDR and Trauma-Sensitive Yoga, to help you recover from trauma. I understand how trauma hijacks the body and mind, leaving us dysregulated, confused, and ashamed. Our work together will focus on establishing safety within so that you can cope with distress and feel empowered and present in your life.
Survivors of Sexual Assault
Grief: Meaning-Making Through Loss
Group therapy is an opportunity to challenge the belief that you are alone in your suffering. In group you will learn new ways to cope with trauma or loss in the safe company of others who share your experience.
Please inquire about current groups.
SEXUAL TRAUMA SURVIVORS
Living with the pain of sexual trauma can be isolating and terrifying. You are not alone.
I have extensive experience working with sexual trauma survivors. Our work together will challenge and transform narratives of shame and self-blame, helping you move towards empowerment, agency, and freedom.
