Hello, my name is Robert. If you are like other people and feeling the pressures of everyday life then the stress from the cares of attempting to live a normal life are working overtime. The pace today is more hectic. People need help. Everyone deserves a safe place and a stable environment. I find the most effective ways to help people feel comfortable with therapy is a welcoming attitude with curiosity about their experiences that have brought the person into the session. My approach is to build a strong therapeutic alliance, provide acceptance, and focus on the present moment without judgment to help people gain the skills for managing complicated situations. Clients have often stated the experience was easy to discuss their issues without worry and they felt non-judged regardless of the situation. We will work together to discover what works, promote healing the whole person, and help understand the dynamics of existing relationships to choose to respond in a rational way to master life to the greatest extent possible. Seeking therapy can feel scary but you’re making the right choice. In our sessions together I’ll meet you with compassion and with evidence-based strategies so you can build resilience, and stability to find the supports you need.

I am a licensed professional counselor in Virginia with 12 years of professional work experience. I hold a BA in psychology, MA in clinical psychology, MA in educational leadership, PhD in counselor education and supervision, and a DBA with a focus in management. When I work with clients, listening to understand instead of hearing to respond is a priority. I believe it is imperative that I develop a sound understanding of my client's subjective worldview to meet them where they are and disrupt maladaptive thoughts and patterns of behavior. My objective is to collaborate with my clients in order to help them identify, address, and resolve matters that reinforce and/or contribute to their presenting concern(s). I have experience in helping clients with relationship issues, trauma and abuse, & motivation, self-esteem, and confidence, anxiety, adjustment issues, college and career readiness, couples, depression, family dynamics, gender identity, identity development, LGBT+, non-traditional relationships, men's issues. In our work together, I work with my clients to create an open and safe environment where thoughts and feelings can be shared without fear of judgment. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I am proud of you for getting started!

My counseling experience includes treating adolescents, adults, and couples. My practice is highly individualized to address common symptoms associated with anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. I treat my clients as unique individuals with their distinctive concerns impacting their lives. I greatly honor the trust I am given by them and will help them navigate difficult times and unexpected life changes. I believe the decision to start the journey toward healing and reconciliation demonstrates a great deal of courage and resolve. Together we can discern a path toward a more balanced and joyful life. Emotional/spiritual growth and symptom reduction are the primary focus of practice. I accomplish this by helping clients understand how their internal life is interacting with outside stressors causing discomfort and impeding growth. I also endeavor to help clients recognize destructive patterns in personal relationships that may be keeping them from further healing. In addition to private practice experience, I also have pastoral/spiritual counseling experience.

Life is hard and sometimes we need help navigating through it. So many of us have those negative thoughts / beliefs that play out in our mind, some from early childhood trauma, others from ourselves. I can help you get rid of those negative messages and reduce or eliminate any symptoms that are a result of those messages and improve your life. I believe that a lot of us have beliefs/ thoughts that are a source of distress, does not matter if / when they started, it matters that they are distressing. There is a lot of negative out there and it is easy to focus on that and not what the positive that you are doing. A lot of people need help in seeing the positive there are doing and being validated for their feelings/actions. I meet the person where they are and will tailor the sessions with input from you to what best meets your needs. I am eclectic.

The average church in Virginia has 250 members attending on any given Sunday.

Feeling like you can't quite keep it together? Sometimes we get overwhelmed with the stresses in life and need help sorting them out. Maybe you've just hit a low point or feeling overly worried and anxious. Talking to a therapist has helped many people who are feeling the same way. The last two years have been more than difficult, and people are struggling. I help people figure out what's working well for them and what's not. Then we explore together the many strengths and skills you already have and can use to overcome the problems life throws at us. I teach new skills and introduce new tools that you can use to feel better and get your life back on track.

While in the corporate sector for 16 years I started my own therapy and recovery. With the support of people I met along the way, I returned to graduate school and started this chapter of my life. For the past 21 years, I have worked in a community based mental health and substance abuse treatment setting, I have been a contractor for the Department of Defense providing the same services as previously mentioned, I have worked in a private group practice providing mental health and outpatient substance use assessment and treatment services, and most recently I have returned home after being in Canada for over 6 years providing clinical services for an intensive outpatient treatment program. In November of 2021, I entered into private practice providing behavioral health and addiction treatment services for adult individuals and couples.

I challenge you while celebrating the changes you are making in your life. I help you to look at your concerns from a different perspective. I can help you identify your roadblocks as you move in the direction to become the person you want to be. I am not the typical therapist in that I do not use a cookie cutter approach to treatment. I like to work with my clients in a way that empowers them while challenging their thinking patterns to change the behaviors that are no longer serving them. With over 30 years of experience, I have developed an expertise in substance abuse, depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, borderline personality disorders and high functioning autism spectrum disorder. I utilize action methods with traditional therapy techniques to help you explore and break through the thought processes and behaviors that are holding you back from being the person you want to be. Through a collaborative approach, I meet you where you are at and assist your growth.

I retired from the Marine Corps in early 2021 after 20 years of active duty; during the last 4 years of my military career, I focused on learning about, and practicing the art and science of Mental Health Counseling. I truly enjoy working with people of all ages and with all concerns, though I gravitate towards working with clients dealing with Bipolar Disorder, Narcissistic Personality Disorder and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.

Hi, its nice to meet you. I have been a therapist for about a decade now. Before being a therapist I spent 20 years in Healthcare Administration with 17 of those in management. I share this because I understand the stress that comes with the "corp" world and management. After 20 years, I decided to change careers and utilize my skills in coaching and mentoring. I received my Master's in Mental Health Counseling from Walden University, where I also went on to get my Doctorate in Health Psychology. I am a health and wellness focused therapist, so I spend time talking about how to balance your life, your stress, and ensure you are having some fun in your life. Therapeutically I'm very eclectic. I use different techniques based on your needs. That being said, yes, I use CBT, DBT, REBT, talk therapy, and assessments as most therapists do. My primary focus is Anxiety (including Social), Anxiety due to a Medical Condition, Bariatric Pre-Surgical therapy/testing, ADHD in adults including testing and therapy, and Sports/Orthopedic Rehabilitation Counseling.

In my experience, I have learned that “hitting rock bottom” does not mean the end of your life, but rather a chance to rebuild your life the way you want it. Life can get stressful and often leave one “suffocating” from the pressure. It is in those moments that you need someone to stand in the chaos with you or help you rebuild. I empower clients to regain control and find balance in their lives. We’ll work together to change your perspective about the situations that are making you feel stuck and identify new ways to address them. Whether you are experiencing some lows in your life, seeking healing from trauma, or wanting to be a better version of yourself, I’ll meet you where you are and provide you with the tools you need to achieve your goals.
