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 offer Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT) for trauma.
  • I offer a research-informed counseling protocol for people with alcohol and other drug concerns. Here are questions for which we seek answers.
  • I offer a free, online course for people with substance use concerns. Here’s an introduction to the course and here’s the direct link.
  • I welcome helping international students, scholars, and professionals who reside in Virginia with any challenges they may face. I am a beginning student of Mandarin Chinese.
  • We have online groups to help people address a variety of concerns.
  • I have a self-pay practice. I offer pay-what-you-can services to people who have been financially compromised by the pandemic.

I specialize in individual, group, and partner counseling for people with symptoms of trauma, overuse of substances, problematic behaviors (including eating, gambling, and Internet overuse), challenging mental health conditions, and personality disorders. 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 – 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.
