More about me
Years in Practice: 4
Hello, Welcome to BetterHelp. My name is Marcus Riggs and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia. I have approximately 4 years of experience working with individuals, couples, and families. The areas that I have worked with are trauma, anxiety, depression, individual problems, relationship issues, marital problems, parenting difficulties, and family relational problems. My counseling is very interactive and empathetic in nature. I believe that the foundation of counseling is mutual respect, being sensitive to difficulties, and compassionate in nature as we attempt to work through any difficult area of life. The modalities that I use in counseling sessions are Solution-Focus Brief Therapy, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy with a Systems mind-set. My desire is to work with clients in developing a treatment plan to address current needs and to bring a sense of healing and balance to life.
It takes a tremendous amount of courage to seek help during this difficult time in your life. I would love the opportunity to support you and assist you in bringing a sense of healing and balance to your situation.
I look forward to hearing from 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.
