Sonya Peretti-Hull


After taking time off to raise my family and manage a family business, I am grateful to return to private practice and consulting. I specialize in EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing), family systems counseling, and the Stress Model. These modalities complement one another, allowing clients to address the intricate connections between personal experiences, family dynamics, and the impact of stress on their well-being.

My academic journey began with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology from Randolph-Macon College. Later, I pursued my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from the College of William & Mary and was awarded the Helen C. Hopper Award for my dedication and interest in family counseling and family life education.

Over the years, I have worked in various mental health settings, including private practice, lecturing across the United States about the Stress Model, and providing family therapy to at-risk teens and their families. My focus recently shifted to the efficacy of EMDR therapy in treating stress and trauma-related disorders, including PTSD, anxiety, and depression.

My background in family systems counseling allows me to apply a wide and systemic perspective to help clients understand the complex dynamics within families and how those dynamics impact individual members. Additionally, my lens based on the perspective and training of the Stress Model allows me to emphasize the role of stress in behavior and mental health disorders, helping clients manage stress and develop effective mindfulness skills and coping strategies.

With over 15 years of experience in behavioral health and 20 years of owning and managing a business, I am dedicated to assisting individuals, businesses, and professionals in enhancing their mental health and well-being. My objective is to aid clients in achieving a gratifying and fulfilling life personally, professionally, or both by delivering empathetic guidance, evidence-based approaches, and a secure and supportive setting.
