“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.

We are wives, partners, students, mothers, entrepreneurs, nurturers, sisters and best friends. The responsibilities of our roles oftentimes leaves very little time to focus on our own emotional need.

Are you motivated to change your life, but don't quite know where to start? My clients come for help to deal with relationship difficulties, anxiety, depression, and loss. With counseling you can begin improving close loving relationships, manage difficult emotions calmly, replace negative thinking with positive rational thoughts, and let go of old fears and pain to more easily enjoy life. As a licensed clinical psychologist I have worked in schools, prisons, community mental health centers and for the last twenty years in private practice.

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?
