We Have Two New Counselors in Fairfax

February 26, 2018

Our Springfield office has two new counselors! We are accepting new patients ages 5 to adult and we accept private insurance and Medicaid. There are openings available. Call 703-659-9900 to make an appointment.


I had the pleasure of sitting down with the counselors and learning a little more about them.

Onsite clinical supervisor, Palesa Osei-Tutu LCSW, has a kind smile and radiates a calm and gentle energy. She comes to YFT with a great depth of experience most recently from a military hospital setting where she worked with active duty personnel and their family members. As she described the unique challenges families face in each branch of the service her empathy and intelligence were clearly evident. We feel very blessed to have Palesa join us at YFT.

Kelley Cahoon LPC, has a long history with YFT. She worked with our children in our residential setting in the early 2000’s then went into private practice. She came back to YFT, working in Gainesville in 2017 and now is taking an office in our Fairfax location. Kelley says she especially loves working with difficult kids and sexual abuse and sexual assault survivors. With a ready laugh and the confidence of years of experience, she is open, friendly and easy to talk to.

Their bios are available on our website. Please go to Fairfax Behavioral Health in the Counseling menu.

We are adding additional therapists to the Fairfax location in the coming weeks and expect the practice to grow quickly.
