Research-Informed, Online Counseling Services

I offer kind, strengths-mobilizing, skills-focused, research-informed online counseling services to residents of Virginia. Individual, group, partner, and family sessions are available.

I specialize in individual, group, and partner counseling for people with substance use concerns, problematic behaviors (including eating, gambling, and Internet overuse), challenging mental health conditions, personality disorders, and symptoms of trauma. I welcome clients with harm reduction treatment goals as well as those who wish to, or are required to, abstain from substances, activities, or behaviors.

When comparing substance use disorder treatment providers, I invite you to compare outcome data. Here’s ours:

Since having substance use, behavioral, or mental health issues is stigmatized in our society – and health record information reported to insurance companies accompanies one for life – I encourage all with these concerns to consider self-paying for services to protect their privacy.

To keep clients’ work on their challenges confidential, I do not take health insurance. (Here’s more about why.) To assist with finances, I offer multiple groups at affordable rates. I offer comprehensive services and limit my caseload to 20 clients. I am passionate about this work and treasure my clients.

To request an appointment, please learn more about appointments and fees, then contact me. I will send you an email to register as a new client through the client portal.

I offer substance use disorder assessments, aftercare counseling, and treatment planning and coordination.

To help clients’ meet their goals, I offer cognitive behavior therapy (CBT) and other outcome-focused counseling protocols. Here’s a formal description of my counseling services.

I would welcome the opportunity to work with you. Please contact me if I can be of service.
