					Grace Hipona, LPC, NCC

I am originally from Kansas City, MO and have been in the DC area for about 5 years. I graduated from
Emory University in Atlanta, GA with a BA majoring in Psychology and Sociology and a minor in Women’s
Studies. I received a MS from Georgia State University in Professional Counseling. I am a Licensed
Professional Counselor in the state of VA and a National Certified Counselor. I have worked with various
populations in the mental health field, such as HIV/AIDS, domestic violence, rape survivors and severe
mental illness. I provide assessments and individual, couples, family and group therapy. I also have
experience with case management, treatment planning, crisis intervention, medication management,
psychoeducational groups, trainings and licensure supervision. I utilize a variety of theoretical
orientations to help clients, including Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, Impact Therapy, Client-Centered
Therapy and other reality based and insight oriented therapies. I believe that everyone could benefit
from counseling and that the process should be empowering, supportive and an opportunity for growth
and change.
