This is the hardest decision you’ve made in a long time.
You really thought you’d never be. You never wanted to be here. You’ve been spinning your tires in the snow for quite some time. Likely, much longer than you’d like to admit. The same patterns have been and continue to happen. When the internal storm strikes, it’s almost impossible to ignore. Regardless of if you are able to find shelter to wait out the storm. Depending on how “good” you are at hiding it, others around you could have no idea that the tornado in your mind is wreaking havoc on your spirit.
But, you’ve reached the point that this song and dance is out of tune.
Maybe you reached this decision on your own. Perhaps the 100th time you searched “counseling in Virginia” felt like the right time to click on the website. Maybe you had help from others. Those around you had a feeling that there was something bigger going on that they, or you, couldn’t handle alone. Or, maybe you’re here even though it wasn’t your choice. You’ve been in some really difficult situations and tried to do your best, but it wasn’t perceived that way. Either way, we’re very happy you’re here.
Starting online counseling in Virginia will be the first step in your journey.
It’s really scary to admit that our situation is bigger than us. There is a level of vulnerability and honesty that comes along with this realization that can feel uncomfortable. Our counselors are all too familiar with that experience. Through online counseling in Virginia, our counselors have worked with many people just like you. And, they’ve also worked with people who were very different from you, too. Offering counseling to people with a variety of different experiences allows our counselors to, truly, “think outside the box.”
Common reasons to Start Counseling in Virginia

Through our lived experience, we develop unique reactions and responses to each situation we come across. Likely, you’ve noticed this in situations that you’ve found yourself in, too. Considering this, our counselors have worked with individuals at every stage in their journey. Through their experience, they’ve noticed a few common reasons to start counseling in Virginia:
- You keep worrying about the same problem over and over
- Sometimes you don’t know who you could ever trust with knowing about your secret struggle
- You wish there was somebody who could tell you why you feel this way
- You’re interested in therapy, but you don’t want to give up total control

Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
Our counselors use cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) when it makes sense. CBT is a type of therapy that focuses on the relationship between our thoughts, actions, and emotions. Recognizing this connection between these three components can help to change our habits and thought patterns. However, what sets our approach apart from the rest is our emphasis on the “feelings” piece of the CBT triangle. Our counselors know that our emotions and emotional reactions can provide us with ample information about the impact the situation is having on us. And, what to address in counseling.
Person-centered therapy can be viewed as a framework. This framework provides our counselors guidance of how to facilitate our counseling journey. Person-centered therapy focuses on building a relationship with the client. With this framework, our counselors are intentional about getting to know you as a human- not just a client. Through this relationship, we have seen great outcomes from counseling. Under this framework, we truly believe that every person has the capacity to reach their fulfillment. In addition, we believe that each person is ultimately good. Which, means that we won’t decide if your decisions are right or wrong.
Online Individual Therapy

When our therapists are able to meet with you on one on one from the comfort of your own home, we are able to form meaningful therapeutic relationships. Then these approaches give us the tools to help you find your own inner strength and regain your power as an individual. We have found individual therapy to be the perfect platform for individual therapy work and look forward to helping you find the strength you already have within yourself to face the world around you with courage.
