More about me

Licensing: MSW, LCSW
Years in Practice: 20
State: VA

I hold a BSW and MSW from Virginia Commonwealth University. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Virginia and North Carolina and an Approved Clinical Supervisor. Drawing upon extensive experience with at-risk youth, individuals, and families in crisis and those facing situational challenges, I provides individual, family, and couple’s therapy. I am also involved in my community through my church, professional, and international organizations.

As a professional with over nearly two decades of training in multiple specialty areas with mandated and non-mandated clients, I bring practical life experience to my view of the world. Seeking support is a powerful step toward your journey to a more fulfilling life. My desire is to help you feel more powerful, find peace, become more self-aware, and become your best self. I utilize cognitive-behavior therapy, family systems therapy, family stress models, and solution-focused therapy as appropriate.

At times, we are able to manage and maintain our lives through the challenges it brings but at other times, we need some additional support. I look forward to the opportunity to work with you and help you identify and use your strengths to facilitate your goals for growth and change.

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 $60 to $90 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.

Stef Gore is the best! She listens, she is adaptable to your needs and she helps you work through your situation. I don't want to share her, I would rather keep her all to myself, but her professionalism is top tier and I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks, Stef for all of your support!

I love Stef Gore!! It is hard to find a counselor who really clicks with you but she and I clicked!! She truly listens and gave me advice and hope for a better future with a current situation I am going through right now. Anytime I was in the moment, I would immediately message her and she'll help me through the process.

Stef Gore is amazing. She really challenges me while making me feel supported . I never feel judged and I enjoy our candid conversations. She will create a space for you to see things in a different perspective then your own which I personally appreciate because it has developed and refined my own personal values while drawing out my ability to see the confidence in my decision making. I would highly recommend better help and Stef to my colleagues, friends, and family.

Stef Gore. I have been in counseling before. In a very short amount of time she has picked up on areas of my life that I really need help in. She has showed wisdom, compassion, and very attentive. I feel like she hears me when I have not felt heard. She is a huge blessing. So very grateful!!
