More about me

Licensing: PhD.
Years in Practice: 31
State: VA

My name is Dr. Eric Niler, and I am a licensed psychologist who has been working in private practice for more than 30 years. Using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), I treat adults with anxiety, depression, chronic pain, trauma/abuse, adjustment disorders, and work-related stresses.

In session, my personal approach is caring, compassionate and conscientious, but with a side of humor, since I think it's important that we don't take ourselves too seriously as we try to navigate and adapt to life's many challenges and stressors. Therapy is a collaborative process between patient and therapist, and I will always encourage feedback to ensure that you feel that our work is moving at a good pace and in the right direction, whether you are looking for a short-term, solution-focused process or a more gradual exploration of past and current experiences.

I've been providing video telehealth services since the Spring of 2020 and am in the process of transitioning my practice completely to telehealth. While I will provide telephone services when necessary, I prefer video sessions because I believe that visual information and feedback are too important to routinely exclude from the therapy process.

I am available for 30-45 minute live telehealth sessions. Although most of my open slots in the calendar are for later in the week, I generally have some availability earlier in the week as well. Feel free to ask if you need a day and/or time not designated as "available."

I look forward to meeting and 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.
