I use a very eclectic approach in which I am engaged and actively involved in the therapeutic process. I ask lots of questions. I invite my patients to move away from self-judgment and to be truly curious about themselves and their lives. We look together at patterns of functioning, at assumptions about the self, at how the present reflects the past. The goal is authenticity and the path is self-awareness.

“I want to feel better. I want a better relationship with my partner or children. I need someone to really listen to me.” These are some of the comments I hear when someone comes to counseling for the first time. Often the clients I see have struggled with depression, anxiety, conflict or trauma for years before they seek help from a therapist. What if counseling could improve your quality of life and lessen your negative symptoms? In my work as a psychotherapist, I have had the joy of seeing these very goals accomplished. My pastoral background also enables me to support clients, using their spiritual resources.

Because there is no shortcut to peace and well-being, treatment is open-ended, tailored to each person's unique needs. Teletherapy by computer, tablet, and smartphone is available for individual, couple, and group treatment sessions. With COVID-19, Shelter-in-Place puts even more stress on relationships and employment. Alcohol, drug use, and porn addiction can make relationships even harder. I have much experience assisting addicts to achieve a more peaceful and productive life for self and family.

Teletherapy (Online Therapy, Virtual Therapists) Therapists
Teletherapy and Online counseling have grown enormously as a medium for therapy since the advent of social distancing. Most therapists are happy to provide sessions by video or phone.

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. Set against those, professionals find it more difficult to read non-verbal signals of their clients, and you may find you yourself can be more easily distracted.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Richmond are able to work with a wide range of issues. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Richmond
