More about me

Welcome to BetterHelp!

My name is Lance Crawford and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC) in the state of Virginia. I have been in the mental health field since 2013 and have worked with a wide variety of populations including: young adults, at-risk youth, LGBTQ, substance abuse, and community mental health. I have a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Counseling from Eastern Mennonite University. My calling to this field has afforded me the opportunity to sit with individuals who have a range of mental health concerns and assist them in navigating through “the storm” to land at a place of calm and stability. In my experiences working with clients, I have found that we, as humans, are all capable and deserving of having a life fulfilled with meaning and purpose.

My approach to counseling is organic, meaning that the goal is for trust and the therapeutic relationship to develop naturally. I believe that counseling is a powerful experience that provides individuals with the opportunity to access vulnerable emotions and to do that effectively, a positive rapport must be established. The therapeutic lens in which I work derives from both Motivational Interviewing and Attachment Theory. I find that exploring our attachment patterns help to reveal deeper understanding of the relationships in which we find ourselves and in return, rewards us with a stronger sense of self and security to manage our own lives. I am also driven to help my clients make positive change by exploring and resolving ambivalence. Learning how to trust our own internal compass (or gut feeling) increases our self-awareness and resiliency.

I look forward to meeting you and joining you on this journey of self-discovery!

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.

I just had my first video session with Lance after messaging him for ~a week and a half. Lance is good at listening to a lot of information, sifting through it, and finding painful area that I needed to address. As someone completely new to therapy, this is so refreshing. I look forward to future sessions as I learn different ways to process my emotions.

Lance really responds to what I am saying and gives me a more methodical/scientific approach that I really respond well to.
