More about me
Years in Practice: 3
My name is Kathryn Ferguson, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Virginia. I work for a community agency that helps people experiencing significant trauma. What is interesting about trauma, is that everyone will face it sometime in their life and it always has an impact. Traumas can include a break-up of a marriage, stress related to job responsibilities, a loss of a love one, a life transition, or a struggle with finding purpose in life, just to name a few. Each trauma is unique to the individual; and their reaction to that trauma is very personal. Often I may be the first person that my client has trusted enough to share their story, and that sharing can be very meaningful. Our goal in therapy will be to connect with each other because trust and authenticity is essential in any therapeutic relationship. This is your journey for change, and my focus will be on joining you wherever you are on your path to healing, without judgement or criticism. I will be right beside you to assist and guide you through your time of need.
At the core, my approach is client-centered. I also find it helpful to incorporate Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and mindfulness technique. What we tell ourselves is important, and finding ways to replace negative thoughts with healthier thoughts can change how you feel about yourself and about the world.
I look forward to working with you, and cant wait to get started on your journey 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.
