More about me

Licensing: LCSW, RPT Years in Practice: 10 State: Virginia

Hi and Welcome!

My name is Hope Holman. I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Virginia with over 10 years of experience in the mental health field. I am a retired Navy veteran and Disabled Vet who earned my Bachelor of Social Work and Master of Social Work at Saint Leo University. I am also a Registered Play Therapist.

I have served clients with a wide range of concerns including; but not limited to, depression, anxiety, trauma and abuse, domestic violence, self-esteem issues, grief and loss, anger issues, relational conflict, parenting challenges, foster care/adoption, Autism, ADHD, physical/sexual/emotional abuse, abandonment/rejection, and life changes. I have experience with various populations from ages 4 to 80. In addition, I have work experience in group therapy, support groups, couple counseling, outpatient, and in-home therapy.

My style of counseling is warm, non-judgmental, supportive, and encouraging. My therapeutic approach is strength-based, combining Cognitive-Behavioral and Client-Centered Therapy; however, I am experienced in several other treatment modalities. As your therapist, you can expect a safe place to unpack and process life; while feeling supported, heard, and empowered.

Therapy takes work and healing is a journey. I am humbled to walk alongside you as you discover a much healthier and happier you. Lao Tzu once said, “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” Seeking out therapy is that one step. It takes considerable courage and strength to say, “I need help!” Perhaps, you simply need a listening ear or a heart that seeks to understand. Whichever it may be, I congratulate you for starting your journey to healing and wholeness whether for the first time in therapy or starting again. You are braver than you think and stronger than you realize!

I am excited about your journey. Let’s get started!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Starting at $65 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Hope is very attentive to my needs and always sheds light on ways I can process my emotions in an open ended way where I ultimately make the decision best suited for myself.

Helped me a lot

Ms. Hope has been absolutely wonderful. I was lucky enough to be matched with her upon my first trial of Better Help and she has been amazing since. So far she has really helped keep my head grounded even outside of our sessions. She has offered and demonstrated so many mental tools for me to use that help retrain, reframe, and refocus my day to day thought processes. My family noticed that my overall mindset has made leaps and bounds of improvement; I’m generally a healthier, happier person to be around. Ms. Hope has a way of keeping me focused and centered when it comes to undoing years and years of mental programming and turning it into something better. I am so grateful and would recommend her to anyone!

Hope identified the problem and helped me within 1 session. She helped when 2 other therapists had failed. She has changed the trajectory of my life in the best way. She listens well, has great advice, gently nudges when you need it, provides useful information that feels personal (not a standard form that you're wondering why you were given). I look forward to every week with her (currently on week 10). She feels like a close family member that understands me, my situation, and offers non judgemental advice. 10/10 would recommend! "For I know the plans I have for you declares the Lord... plans to give you HOPE and a future" :)

Literally the BEST!! This is the first counselor I’ve had that has made me feel heard and understood. ❤️

T.I.·Oct 03, 2021


Hope has been a huge help to me. She was able to help me get to the root of many of my issues and give me many tools to help me take better care of myself, too. She is positive and encouraging while having the ability to ask hard questions to help me get unstuck. Thanks, Hope!

So far our meeting have been very beneficial. I enjoy speaking to Hope each week. I look forward to progress we will make together.

J.E.·Aug 30, 2021


My therapy with Hope is going amazingly. She has helped me a lot with processing my thoughts and guides me in ways that I find calm on my own. She helps me realize where my thoughts and fears stem from without judgement. I have learned a lot about myself that I may have overlooked or buried within me. I am thankful for her services

R.A.·Aug 09, 2021


My therapist is the best! Hands down. I brag about her often and encourage others to join Better Help in hopes of finding a therapist as awesome as her. She listens. She cares. She understands. She encourages . Can’t ask for a better person to share my healing journey with.

T.I.·Jun 14, 2021


Hope is very helpful and is an incredible listener!

Ms. Hope is a great match for me. She responds quickly to messages, even though they are not urgent. Our first call was great. She is kind, compassionate, understanding, and knowledgeable. She provided great insight with careful consideration and after actively listening. She made great suggestions and gave me action steps to take so I can make progress in my journey of healing and growing. I look forward to our future sessions together.

N.I.·Apr 13, 2021


Hope Holman has been a great help. Even in the first session she listened and understood me very quickly and gave me actionable help. She continues to dive deep and get to the root of the problem and even in just a few short sessions I'm understanding myself better. In addition to her opening my eyes, her suggestions on how to handle things have been really helpful.
