More about me

Licensing: LPC
Years in Practice: 30
State: VA

Hi, I'm Eleanor Woollard, Licensed Professional Counselor, a therapist with 30 years of experience in dealing with multiple issues including but not limited to depression, anxiety, personality disorders, addictions, eating disorders, relational issues, dissociative disorders, trauma, and family problems. I have developed codependency treatment programs for two hospitals in Atlanta, as well as directed two large substance abuse treatment programs. Additionally, I have lectured regionally and nationally on many psychological topics (depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, codependency, unresolved family of origin issues) designed to educate the public about emotional and mental wellness, and how to create a more fulfilling life. I was quoted in Newsweek Magazine as an expert on the effect of alcoholism on the family. Additionally, I developed a grass roots program helping parents understand the impact of divorce on children and how to make the child more comfortable in the midst of divorce.

I have practiced individual therapy in private practice for the past 30 years, and am always honored when someone allows me to understand their inner world. I always tell clients that coming to counseling is like going to an auto mechanic or a surgeon. While, obviously, working with your inner states is not as mechanical as working on a car or operating on a body, it is similar in that most people are needing some kind of "adjustment" emotionally and mentally. Counseling strategies help you unblock things which are causing you pain or other distress, and help you "run" better - or as one of my clients said "Now I'm hitting on all cylinders."

As a therapist, most important when we meet would be determining if we are a good "fit"....because counseling should feel safe and caring. If you are comfortable with me, then together we will create a plan which defines what your inner and outer goals are for counseling and explore how to get there. For some, just feeling less sad is a goal, and for others, having direction in how to feel more intentional in their life about finances or career is a goal. You can have many goals in counseling, and my task is to help you become more clear about steps to take to address your situation, and if you feel blocked, to discern the origin of the blockage and the most effective way to dissolve the perceived block.

While not my current primary focus in private practice, I have extensive experience with 12 step recovery programs, and have also studied transpersonal psychology. What all of that means is that I am very comfortable helping you integrate your spiritual, philosophical or religious orientations into your counseling, if you wish.

I look forward to meeting 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.

Eleanor has been a huge blessing. She listens well to me and helps me sort through the chaos in my head. My mental health has improved markedly since I began working with her, and though I originally only wanted to use BetterHelp for a couple of months, I plan to keep using it for longer because the care I receive from Eleanor has been so helpful.

Eleanor is the best. I’ve only been working with her for a few weeks and she has already made a positive difference in my life. I would recommend her to anyone who needs the help. She has helped me with my anxiety and provides light on situations that definitely need it.

Eleanor has been very helpful in the short amount of time I have started therapy. She made me feel safe to open up to her.

Eleanor has been as wonderful as she is professional. I always feel safe to speak freely with her.

I’ve had just one session but I have found Eleanor to be helpful and professional. I will need more sessions with her to provide a thorough review. So far so good

Since March Eleanor and I have been working together. I can’t explain how incredible my own personal transformation has been since then and how much she’s been able to help me. Eleanor helped me find resources for my eating disorder, and has been with me through every step of recovery. Her empathy and understanding for what I’m going through, and guidance in delving deeper into my response stress has helped me insurmountably. I’m so thankful that BetterHelp was able to match us. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone struggling with eating disorders, body dysmorphia, or anyone looking for parts work.

It’s no stretch to say that I don’t know what my life would be like had I not worked with Eleanor during this pandemic.

I appreciate Eleanor's work. At first I wasn't sure that how she described her work matched what I thought I needed, but she readily adapted to my needs and I feel I'm making progress.

She really helps guide me in the right direction, and helps me find things I can do to to improve my own situations. I greatly appreciate her honestly and assistance.

Eleanor has been so helpful in walking me through a very painful recent experience. She really listened to my concerns and could see right away how my different life experiences were informing my pain and my reactions to it. She helped me get to the root cause of what was hurting me and worked with me to heal at the deepest level. She is also very funny and enjoyable to talk to which made our sessions together something I looked forward to!

Eleanor has been a great help! She is understanding and provides tactics to help me cope with my anxiety!

V.E.·Jun 21, 2020


Eleanor has a wealth of knowledge but most importantly a great heart that allows you to take your walls down and sit in comfort with her. She allows you the time, space and provides tools without bias. She's very punctual, gives you the time you need and sits with you in your discomfort. She's a blessing and a true gift to this community.

L.E.·Jun 04, 2020


Eleanor has made such and incredible impact on my life, even in just 2 months. She has really helped me piece a lot of life’s events together and untangle the knots inside my brain. Everyone needs an Eleanor in their life!
