About Me

Hello, my name is Lewis R. Burger, and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker licensed in the state of Virginia for over 20 years. I've experienced a wide variety of scenarios in my work at community mental health agencies, schools, goverment agencies, private practice, and healthcare. An open dialogue between client and counselor to help promote awareness, solutions, and insights that will result in lasting change is my goal. The relationship between client and counselor is the key ingredient to a successful outcome from therapy. In my years of practice, I've found that a person-centered approach seems to be the most effective, and I respect the uniqueness of each person's life experiences.

Over the years, I have worked with clients that have a history of trauma, depression, anxiety, relational difficulties, lifestyle changes, crisis, and parenting difficulties. My primary experience has been with teens, adults, and families. Although I have a Cognitive BehavioraI background, I prefer to utilize an ecclectic style that matches the type of therapy to the need presented. I would appreciate the ability to join your counseling journey. No matter your choice of counselor, I am hopeful that you find peace and knowledge along the way.

Lewis is an amazing consular. He is very kind hearted and understanding. I enjoy talking to him and receiving his advice. This is my first positive experience with therapy.

Awesome dude, has helped me through some difficult stuff/times, very easy going, laid back, listens, doesn't force conversation or topics, respectful... just damn good at what he does.

Lewis Burger is great. I have only had 2 sessions with him, and we have already started to make some progress towards the issues I need to seek therapy for. I feel very confident in his work, and I look forward to seeing great progression.

Lewis dove right in from our first session with getting to know me and what brought me into therapy. We have been addressing my initial concerns and working together to unpack everything and I have been able to see myself starting to improve already. The worksheets I get sent are very helpful tools to keep my mind fresh about what we're working on, and even offer real life help. I am so beyond pleased about the flexibility and availability of BetterHelp and Lewis. I've already suggested Betterhelp to multiple people!
