Virginia Lyon


15 years of experience

Hello! I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) who graduated in 2009 from a very small college in Pennsylvania. I have been working mainly with adults who are living with anxiety, depression, and trauma. My focus is to help people live their best life. I do this through the therapy process, but I also try to include humor in our sessions.

What can clients expect to take away from sessions with you?

In our first session together, there is some paperwork! I tried to get through the things that I need to in a gentle and caring way and allow my client to speak their truth and feel heard. This her session also helps us map out where we’re going to go in future sessions.

Explain to clients what areas you feel are your biggest strengths.

I think the amount of time I have been at Therapist has really given me a great perspective on people. I try very hard to be warm, open and nonjudgmental to every person. I think everyone has a story to tell and I feel very lucky that I am the one many people choose to tell their story to.

My treatment methods

Cognitive Behavioral (CBT)

I have used cognitive behavioral therapy throughout my years as a social worker. I find clients respond well and it makes for streamlined visits.


I tend to go where my clients go in therapy. There are some days where I am using cognitive behavioral therapy and others where I am using electrical behavioral therapy or mindfulness. It just depends!
