More about me
Years in Practice: 4
Hello, Welcome to BetterHelp! I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in the state of Virginia. I have been in the field for four years with experience working as a crisis counselor, in home counselor, working within a community service board organization providing counseling as well as currently through a private practice. I use an integrative holistic & humanistic approach working with a range of mental health diagnoses and symptoms such as: depression, anxiety, personality disorders, behavioral issues, substance use, trauma, grief, anger management, self-esteem issues, interpersonal relationship issues, etc. I have experience working with young children, adolescents, adults, families, and couples. I enjoy using psychoeducational activities, worksheets, visual aids, and person centered activities to assist clients with finding their path in life, reaching self-actualization, identifying goals/objectives, reducing negative symptoms, and improving overall functioning in life. I strive to teach my clients skills to assist with improving thinking patterns, communication skills, motivation, mindfulness skills, interpersonal effectiveness, and problem solving skills. I want my clients to feel supported, safe, and encouraged to reach their highest potentials in life by finding personal growth through counseling services. Starting counseling can be a daunting journey but having an experienced counselor there every step of the way makes it that much easier to achieve your goals in life. I look forward to walking this journey with each and every one of my clients!
About online counseling
Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.
