More about me

Years in Practice: 5

My name is Virginia Nielsen, I have my Masters's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling and LMHC in WA state. Will have my VA/PA license in Oc. 2021. I have been practicing in the field since 2015 and have had my full license since 2019. I am currently in my Ph.D. program at Liberty University, graduating no later than 2024. I am Christian, and LGBTQ+ friendly, work mostly with adults under 48. I have some experience working with youth in the process of transitioning, and a few adults.

I work with clients using therapy styles that work best for them and meet them on their level and pace. My experience working with patients using CBT/DBT/mindfulness/behavioral/narrative/art, through workbooks, talk therapy, worksheets, and telehealth therapy only since March 2020.

When working with clients I find it helpful to inform them I have a nerve disorder that can at times, make a day off needed from time to time. Any client interested in working with me will need to take this into consideration.

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. Ranging from $35 to $80 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.

Virginia helps me identify and prioritize my goals and strategies in therapy. My work with her in BetterHelp has provided hope and a plan forward while struggling with big and small challenges.

I have gone through 3 counselors and no one is like Virginia. She listens well, is kind, and genuinely cares for my issues. She is a safe place to talk about my hardships with and she helped me find ways to overcome my problems.

Ms. Virginia Nielsen listens. She also asks questions to make sure she understands how she could help you. She offers worksheets for in between sessions. This is someone who won’t judge you and is genuinely friendly and caring.

BetterHelp and my counselor Virginia make it so much easier to get the help I need at a price I can afford. And if I run into something between sessions I can always reach out and sort through things. Virgina is an excellent practitioner with the experience and skill to address any of the things I've needed to work through.

Virginia is an amazing counselor. She has helped me immensely in the time I have known her. She helped diagnose what my specific issues were, created detailed plans tailored to my specific needs, and always responded to any questions, concerns or requests in a timely manner. My symptoms and overall quality of life have improved immensely since working with Virginia, and I would highly recommend this counselor.
