About me

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia and have been in a private practice for over 25 years. I work with individuals who suffer from depression, anxiety, ADHD, and traumatic experiences (physical, emotional, and sexual). Family conflicts and relationship issues are also a focus of my practice.

My approach includes cognitive behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, and rational emotive behavior therapy. I often coordinate mindfulness, insight-oriented approaches, and storytelling in my sessions, depending on an individual’s uniqueness.

My primary goal is to develop a therapeutic relationship built on trust. I believe that the client’s motivation is key to success and that all motivation must start with a destination, chosen by the client. I see myself just as a facilitator, guiding the client towards that destination.

I look forward to working with you!

Esther has been great in helping me cope with my anxiety, understand it and providing tools that I can use in my day to day life. She’s also easy to reach during our non-session times as well, which I greatly appreciate!

Esther has been amazing. Listening and allowing me to understand and get to realizations about my past present and future that I have spent so many years not understanding. She has been kind and caring and firm when necessary but most importantly, she has allowed me to express all and any emotion that I’ve had some that I didn’t know I had and allowed me to feel them completely and walked me through them and helped to understand why I may or may not have felt them and to let me know that each and every one of those big feelings were okay.

Esther is my first experience with Therapy/ Therapist. I had my reservations about online therapy going in to it. So happy I was matched with Esther. She is wise and knowledgable and her experience shows. She is easy to communicate with and compassionate and has a good sense of humor which I appreciate very much. In this short while( 5 weeks), Her many small but significant suggestions and directions have made a big difference to my mental wellbeing. I look forward to my sessions with her.

She has been a great help to me to help me understand myself better and to help me process through the trauma of losing my parents and other relatives.
