The question asks for my ideal client. I can no more give you that answer than I can tell you what's normal. I work with individuals, families, and couples to overcome a variety of challenges. I begin where a client is. I bring energy, enthusiasm, and openness as I help to build investment in treatment. My experience is as diverse as life-long mental health symptoms to life adjustments.

It is much harder for us to show kindness and compassion than it is to judge ourselves because we are not strong enough to push through everything with a smile. I hope to assist you with learning how to extend the kindness you give to others to yourself. I have experience with individuals across the lifespan experiencing significant emotional distress and with those struggling with transitioning between stages of life. I focus on ambiguous grief to assist anyone struggling to identify and establish the role they want to have in their own lives and create sustainable change.

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.

Life’s challenges may cause us to react and respond in many different ways. Our current situation may or may not be in our immediate control, but when we look at our life, long-term, it will be the decisions that we make today that set the course of the overall outcome. Experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, confusion, and frustration (to name a few) may be a part of that journey, but you do not have to go down that road alone. It's important to have a safe and confidential space to work through challenges, become more resilient, and come out on the other side with confidence and skills to manage the situations you face.

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
