Doesn't it make sense to talk with someone who has actually experienced what you are going through? Someone who understands drinking and/or substance use can both cause problems AND provide much needed relief. I have been where you are, or somewhere close, and together we can find a way out. My ability to help is grounded in 10 years of active addiction, followed by 27 years of continuous recovery and 14 years of academic training (MSW, PhD). I understand the science, and I know the suffering. I work with others who have suffered, their families and loved ones.

Both personally and as a therapist, I believe that everyone has the potential to become the finest version of themselves, but transformation is never a simple process. If you’re feeling stuck, then perhaps it’s time to turn problems into actions and begin to work toward your preferred reality. Imagine life without the challenges that keep you from being the person you want to be—having great relationships, making thoughtful choices, and finding meaning in your everyday living. I am committed to helping you rewrite your story.

Nothing changes, if nothing changes. When your life feels like a constant struggle then therapy may be in your best interest. Our mental and emotional life, like anything requires maintenance to keep things in good working order. I won't explore the past in exhaustive detail. Rather, we will identify thought patterns and behaviors that keep you adrift or unhealthy. If your relationships are troubling, you are not alone. They are the most common cause of distress and contribute heavily to anxiety & depression. Engaging in therapy is a major life decision. Decide mindfully about the best fit for you.

You get annoyed at the question “where are you from?” because the answer is a complicated story. Everyone thinks that you are “exotic” because you or your family are from a different country, little do they know that you are constantly questioning how you fit into expectations from society and your family. You embrace being “quirky”, “a misfit,” "different” but only on the inside and only to a select group of people. You feel exhausted wearing multiple masks, being “too much” for some people in your life and “not enough” for others. Maybe it’s time to discover the courage you never knew you had.

Since youth, I wondered about human behavior and why people do what they do. To explore this interest further I took a class in comparative behavior and loved it. Since then I looked for opportunities to learn more about people, their actions, and their feelings while trying to find ways to help them improve their lives and feel better. I am lucky enough to be trained in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy. I used this advanced therapy process in California at the Anne Sippi Clinics in the service of those suffering severe adult psychopathology (mental health issues) early on in his career.

All professionals are licensed to provide video therapy to clients within the State in which they hold their license. Cross State licensing exists, but is rare.

So if you're a client in Richmond, this list of teletherapists are licensed to provide therapy to you online (by phone, video or text based chat) because they are within your state. They are sorted nearest to furthest, with professionals in Richmond listed first.

Teletherapy via phone or video can be very similar to conventional in person sessions. The message is the same, even if the medium is different. There are some advantages in the form of convenience, lack of travel and being in comfort of your own home.
