More about me

Licensing: LPC
Years in Practice: 6
State: VA

Hello, my name is Joe Gasperini. I live in Southern Virginia after having grown up in upstate New York and Los Angeles, CA. I am married and the father of eight children ranging in age from 17 to 41. During my spare time I am interested in activities of my children, sports (especially golf), travel, and insight into social behavior.

Therapy is a place where you can feel heard in a supportive, comfortable and warm environment. When life is overwhelming and stressful, or relationships are struggling, counseling can help. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, we will work together to help you reduce the suffering you may feel. I want to hear about what is hurting you and stopping you from moving forward in a happy and positive way in your life. Together we will decide on a plan of action to get you back to where you want to be as quickly as possible and develop a way to keep you there.

Due to my very diverse background and having gone through many of life's ups and downs myself, I have learned how best to treat a multitude of life's issues. This helps to come up with effective plans to alleviate problems by understanding where you are coming from.

My approach to counseling is interactive, down-to-earth and collaborative. I strive to create a comfortable, non-judgmental environment where you feel free to openly discuss whatever issues you feel most important. Together, we can work to give you the tools you need to create the life you want.

I have BS degree in Finance and Economics from Syracuse University and a MA degree in Licensed Professional Counseling from Liberty University. I am also a Certified Anger Management Specialist II.

I look forward to working with 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 $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.

Joe has been an amazing counselor to me for the last four years. He has been a great person to bounce various situations off of and has a wide array of experience for multiple family and personal issues. I am very happy to have found Joe on Betterhelp.

Joe Gasperini has been an outlet for my son Danny. As an adult with Autism it is hard for him to open up to people. Danny feels comfortable with Gasperini and looks forward to his sessions.

Joe Gasperini has become a very important part of my son Danny's recovery. He is kind and funny and listens to Danny, when ever Danny needs him. Danny was offered a therapist thru his insurance but turned the service down because he is so comfortable with Joe G. I am truly happy and amazed at how Danny (who doesn't like to talk much with others) has connected with Joe G. Thank you, Betterhelp.

Joe Gasperini is wonderful with my son Danny. He has patience and understanding when dealing with him. Danny has the option to see a therapist his insurance would pay and even had a few sessions and he decided he wanted to styeith Gasperini.

Joe has been very helpful an given us great insights to the issues that we are having. He also works very hard to make connections by phone and video. Joe would be very helpful to a wide range of issues other people seeking therapy would have.

Joe was my first therapist and Im very happy I was lucky to have him. His life experience is very diverse and rich, e.g. he also was relocating and he deeply understands the stress caused by it, etc. I found him supportive of my dreams and ideas, he helped me to truly accept them and to be opened to the positive change. I strongly recommend him! After a couple weeks with him I significantly decreased overthinking as well.

Joe has been great through our time working together. He listens, understands where I’m coming from and my goals for therapy. He has been very responsive and has always had availability. He is understanding and I never felt judged. He has a great breadth of experience in many areas and issues both professionally and personally, so not only is he a great counselor, but he’s relatable, compassionate and kind as a person too. I would recommend working with Joe.

T.O.·Jun 25, 2020

Joe is an excellent counselor who has a large amount of experience, perspectives, and resources that together can really analyze and get to the roots of an issue. He is patient, attentive, compassionate, responsive, and supportive. I’ve really appreciated how he really gets to know a person and what’s going on and tries diligently to work together through it at a comfortable pace, never pushing but always to an end goal of gaining better self comfort, acceptance, and a renewed path forward.

E.R.·Feb 01, 2020
