Hi there! I'm a counselor and student affairs professional who has worked with college students for over twenty years.

Services & Pricing

My practice is a boutique practice that specializes in working with college students and emergent adults (age 18 to 29) using a unique concierge therapy approach.  Let’s face it—life is hard.  University life has become so complicated now a days, and transitioning from college to the work world can be even more difficult, especially here in Charlottesville.  We live in a beautiful town with so much to do, yet at the same time can be so lonely, stagnate, and far from civilization. 

Over the course of many years, I’ve discovered that the most effective way to work with emerging adults requires a blend of coaching and therapy.  If you hire me, I will join you in partnership and help you successfully navigate your way into full-fledged adulthood.  Unlike traditional therapy, I will teach you whatever basic adulting skills you need to learn. 

Concierge therapy is an exclusive service that is only offered to a limited number of clients at a time; this allows me to work deeply with each client, while allowing them to access next level care with numerous perks that traditional therapy does not afford.  Clients can visit the comfortable and private office or opt for on-call, in-home, or mobile therapy allowing you to remain in the comfort of your own home while becoming the best you that you can be.


  • I take most major insurance, including Anthem, Aetna, Cigna, Optima, Optum, and United (in-network, co-pay).

  • Although I am happy to work with you to receive reimbursement from your insurance provider, insurance companies require certain diagnoses in order to authorize treatment and they have access to your therapeutic records.  Bypassing health insurance keeps our work especially private and confidential.


I have dedicated my career to enhancing the student experience of college and university students. My years of experience in counseling and higher education have helped me to understand and establish rapport with hundreds of university-aged students and higher education professionals. Let me help you achieve your goals.

I had a really difficult time after graduation, moving to Charlottesville and joining the workforce. Luckily a co-worker referred me to Mark. He helped ease my transition so much, having a nice, friendly person to talk to. I’ve had other therapists in the past but not like Mark. He’s the best in my book.

Our daughter was so homesick her first semester that she wanted to drop out. We were lucky to have found Mark! She finished her first year at UVA and is looking forward to coming back. Mark was so patient with us as a family. We did a few family sessions and he was always happy to return my phone calls to reassure me. He’s our hero!

Mark was the only person who could stop me from binging. I had tried so many counselors, and even went in-patient for a period of time. Nothing until I found Mark. Just wanted everyone to know how amazing he is!

My son is on the spectrum. I was worried about him starting college so we hired Dr. DeNoble. My son has never been so happy. He’s comfortable, more social, and doing well in his studies. DeNoble is a gem!
