    Hygge {hoo ga} is a Danish word to describe the art of building sanctuary and paying attention to what makes us feel open hearted and alive.

    I would recommend Kara Fulop to anyone! I truly cannot say enough positive things about her. Kara is warm and inviting and lets you share at your own pace. She keeps an open and unbiased mind and genuinely cares about you as a person. Not only does Kara truly listen to what you tell her you need, she intuitively senses and provides support for needs you may have not even recognized…

    She is excellent therapist. She helps me define and execute my goals for my mental, emotional, and physical well being. She meets with me virtually every week, and has very flexible hours. I cannot recommend working with her highly enough.

    Kara has been instrumental in supporting my daughter’s mental health journey. She always makes time for my daughter. Kara has been instrumental in providing my daughter with the tools and strategies she has needed to smile again.

    Kara Fulop has been a blessing to me and my family. She always helps me no matter what and is truly a life saver. (15 yr old teen)

    I love working with Kara Fulop! I’ve had experiences where therapy was just the therapist talking about themselves the whole time and she has shown me otherwise. She’s helped me so much through many tough situations and is a very positive, respectful person.

    My 11 year old son sees Kara Fulop. I could not possibly write enough good things about her. She’s wonderful and has helped him so much. He has a habit of shutting down when he gets frustrated, but Kara can read his body language, even on the zoom/telehealth sessions, and knows how to get him to talk to her. She gives him good strategies and coping skills. And, bless her heart, listens to him talk non-stop about minecraft for a designated chunk of their session time. Kara keeps me in the loop with his issues and what they’re working on, and is super fast at replying to my emails. We love her.

    Our sessions with Kara on Zoom, provide a professional and comfortable environment to discuss a variety of issues. These sessions have helped us focus on important issues and have helped us in working through them and improved our quality of life.

    Kara is terrific! She’s very relatable and easy to talk with. She really listens, remembers what you’ve discussed together and offers great perspective and ideas to help deal with and/or solve issues. I can’t recommend her enough!

    Kara Fulop’s expertise and compassion has helped our family in so many positive ways! Her insight has made certain behaviors easier to understand, which has allowed us to adapt and to hopefully eventually overcome a difficult situations. Kara is so easy to talk to – you will feel like you are talking to a close friend from the very start.

    I’ve worked with Kara Fulop on a professional basis and thinks she’s amazing. She’s passionate about overall well-being and gives 110% in everything she does.

    I’ve known Kara Fulop professionally for 8+ years. She is an exemplar in her field who is always striving to not only learn more, but also contribute to the field of counseling so that others continue to grow. Kara has been an integral leader with the Virginia Counselor’s Association and volunteers countless hours helping counselors in our field access continuining education. Her attention to detail and dedication to others makes her an outstanding member of our counseling community.
