I have been with NCG since June, 2008. I started out as a Community Based Counselor II, then became a clinical supervisor, and an Assistant Site Director at the Virginia Beach site. I obtained my B.S. from Old Dominion University and my MSW degree from Norfolk State University. I am in the process of becoming a registered play therapist, and have started the Crisis Stabilization Program for children and adults at the Virginia Beach site. I also enjoy reading and watching movies.

Site Manager

I have been working in the mental health field since 1997 as a Qualified Mental Health Profession and have been with National Counseling Group since 2011. I've enjoyed my experiences working in various roles, including as a Mental Health Skills Builder, in Therapeutic Day Treatment, and as an Intensive In- Home Counselor. After graduating from Regent University with a Clinical Mental Health and School Counseling Degree, I pursued my Licensure in Clinical Mental Health Counseling. Since becoming licensed, I have been honored to become a Supervisor, an Outpatient Therapist, and currently working as a Site Manager. I'm also trained in Cognitive Behavior Therapy, Mindfulness, and EMDR therapy. My passion is people and my purpose is to serve.


Victoria Ferguson, MSW, LCSW, QDDP

I rejoined National Counseling Group in May of 2022. I previously worked for NCG in 2017 as a Community Based Counselor. I received my B.A. in Sociology from Norfolk State University and a Master's in Social Work in Advanced Clinical Practice from Walden University. I am currently working to obtain credentialing as a Registered Play Therapist and utilize play therapy interventions under the supervision of an RPT. I specialize in treating youth and adolescents, individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities, and those struggling with depression, anxiety, relationship issues, self-esteem, and grief. I utilize a person-centered, solution-focused approach to empower my clients to effect change in their lives.

Lisa Strother, LCSW

Clinical Supervisor

I joined the NCG family in 2018 as a Community Based Counselor, then transitioned to School-Based Counselor, Outpatient Therapist, and now Clinical Supervisor.  I earned a BS in Psychology from University of Maryland Global Campus and a MSW from University of Hawai’i.  I’m currently pursuing a certificate in Animal-Assisted Therapy and hope to someday incorporate one of my four lovable basset hounds into my practice.  I use concepts from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Positive Psychology to empower children, adolescents, and adults to overcome barriers to success, to achieve wellness, and to reach life goals.
