More about me

Licensing: PhD, LPC, LMFT
Years in Practice: 21

I have been a licensed mental health counselor in the state of Virginia for the past 20 years. I am licensed in Professional Counseling; Marriage and Family Counseling and Addictions. I have a PhD in Counseling and Education. I have worked with adolescents, their families, and adults with addiction and dual disorders for the past 20 years. Addictions I have worked with include alcohol, illicit substances, and medication abuse. I have also worked with professionals (doctors, nurses, CEOs, police officers, etc.) and their family members who were dealing with different addictions. I understand that the when a family member is struggling from addiction the family struggles too. The impact is overwhelming. Helping the whole family has been my focus for over 20 years. Working with parents dealing with addiction in their teenagers is also one of my expertise. I wrote a book, "Teenland: A Parent's Guide to Navigating the World of Adolescence" (which can be gotten through me directly) which helps parents parent adolescents.

My approaches includes cognitive-behavioral, Person Centered, Solution Focused therapy, Motivational Interviewing and Neuro Linguistic Programing . Change is possible no matter how old you are or what the issues are. I can help guide you to whatever changes you decide you want. Our work is a partnership. I am an expert on change and you are the expert on you.

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.

Patient, listens well, non-judgmental. Never rushes me through a session. Follows up with me via messaging. Dr. K. is the first counselor that I have actually stuck with. I believe that I will actually make positive progress with her.

Dr. Kayanan in my opinion is a great counselor for anyone that needs to have someone or any issues you are facing. I know in the short time we have talked she has made me feel so much better about myself, and I am sure she will continue to help me.

L.O.·Sep 18, 2019


Dr. Kayanan has been very helpful, supportive and patient. I find her to be competent, knowledgeable, compassionate and attentive. I left BetterHelp for a while, and came back only because of my experience with her as my therapist the last time around.

R.A.·Aug 24, 2019


Dr. Kayanan is compassionate and clearly wants to help. I appreciate her immensely.

N.I.·Jul 25, 2019


Dr. Kayanan is extremely empathetic in her approach to me, especially considering the fact that i stay overseas and there is a huge cultural gap. She works very hard to tailor the sessions to my unique needs. I am extremely grateful to her for helping me through a really difficult time in my life.

I was able to talk to Dr. Kayanan for only a couple of sessions (due to my scheduling issues and work commitments) but it made a huge difference in being able to handle my daily anxiety. Can't recommend her enough.

L.A.·May 03, 2019


Dr. Kayanan has been amazing. She has helped me considerably put my anxiety and worry at ease. She is respectful of my beliefs, and is incredibly kind and compassionate.

S.U.·Nov 26, 2018


I am so pleased with my counseling from miss Pamela and she is actually extraordinary advisor and I have had counseling before in my own country but none of them have worked as well as I am experiencing now. Thank you dear God for leading me to this amazing counselor and thank you so much Pamela. I am so thankful for you

S.V.·Nov 16, 2018


She made me feel very comfortable in speaking with her and I was able to open up instantly which is something I've had trouble with in the past. She makes me feel as if she will help me address my issues and I feel confident in her expertise

T.I.·Oct 17, 2018


Dr Kayanan. is awesome! She knows exactly what to answer, how to address my concerns and always has excellent ideas on how to manage them. I'm really happy to have her as my therapist.

L.A.·Oct 06, 2018


I was at a difficult place in my life and could not really discuss it with anyone around me. I needed an objective opinion and advice. Dr. Kayanan not only helped me find the right path forward, but reaffirmed what I knew in my heart was the right thing. She is insightful and extremely helpful. I am confident that I made the right decisions with her help and guidance.

D.I.·Oct 01, 2018


I have thoroughly enjoyed each session with Dr. K. Her guidance and opinion matter a great deal to me. I have had my spirit lifted and that is exactly what I needed. I owe her my gratitude and thankfulness.

A.N.·Sep 13, 2018


Dr. Kayanan has been very helpful in this difficult place that I'm in mentally and spiritually in my life. She has been very understanding and has been there to listen and ask the right questions to guide me in the direction that I want to make in my life.
