Tina was more than I expected for a first session. She actively listens, asked great thought provoking follow up questions and didn't let me 'walk by' a key concern needing exploring. I ended the session feeling better. And though I said I feel better now in the moment but it won't last, she challenged me to give it time where feeling better will more longer lasting. I believe Tina is my person to push me to work through being 'uncomfortable' and to quite her 'got to get through to get to' is a journey.

I am a graduate of Virginia Commonwealth University, with a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology and a master’s degree in clinical social work. I have over 15 years of experience in private practice providing therapy to adults, couples, children, families and groups.
I have experience working with individuals who are challenged by depression, anxiety, trauma, grief/loss issues and substance abuse with co-occurring mental health challenges. In addition, I have experience across a variety of settings, including community behavioral health organizations, the University Counseling Center and various work place environments.
I describe my therapy style as eclectic, and client centered, I approach the therapeutic relationship with authenticity, empathy and respect. I believe in starting where you are and first and foremost establishing therapeutic rapport. I frequently utilize modalities including; cognitive behavioral therapy, dialectic behavior therapy, motivational interviewing, psychodynamic therapy, strengths based and mindfulness-based strategies. I have also provided crisis and disruptive event management and provided trauma response counseling to the survivors of the Virginia Beach, Virginia tragedy. In addition, I provide short term/ brief therapy for the Employee Assistance Program (EAP) and received specialized training and certification in the treatment of anxiety and panic disorders.
Finally, I believe that we all have the potential to change challenging situations and the ability to reach our fullest potential. My goal as a therapist is to assist you with achieving your fullest potential through helping you confront your challenges and discover new strengths . I look forward to working with you and assisting you with achieving your goals.
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.
