Ranisha Presbery

(LCSW, CSAC)

About Me

Hi, my name is Ranisha Presbery and I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) and a Certified Substance Abuse Counselor (CSAC) in the state of Virginia. I have a Masters of Social Work (MSW) degree as well as a Bachelors of Social Work (BSW) degree.

Making the decision to seek therapy can be hard but you have already made the first step. I know deciding to see a therapist can be scary but it can also be a rewarding and fulfilling journey. I would love the opportunity to take that journey with you.

My counseling style involves being warm, interactive and challenging. I believe in cultivating a safe and nonjudgmental environment where you can feel comfortable with sharing your thoughts and emotions. I believe that therapy should focus on processing your feelings as well as learning tools and skills to use whenever you are feeling disempowered.

I have been practicing independently as a clinical provider for almost 10 years. My therapy approaches include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy and Motivational Interviewing. My expertise does include working with individuals struggling with substance abuse issues as well as individuals that have had a hard time with building self esteem and confidence.

This was a big step for you and I am happy that you clicked on my profile. Let's get started today working on goals that will start to improve and enhance your life. I look forward to meeting you.

Ranisha is a wonderful and supportive therapist who is always non-judgemental and gets right to the root of the issue. She helps you to steer away from all the details of situations that can really keep someone stuck and helps you to implement larger scope coping skills that you will be able to use no matter the circumstances.

Ranisha is beyond sweet, super caring, and has been wonderful to work with! I appreciate her "do the work, to see the work" approach. She lets you figure things out as you go along, and see what really works for you. You get to be a part of the journey to really understand the different ways in which you might look at your life. It is really easy to talk to her and she easily keys into the aspects/hurdles to work on next in my self-work/journey.
