Thank you for taking the first step to make a difference. My name is Orly Katz. I am a professional counselor in MD, VA, DC and in NV. I am also a maternal child nurse. My passion for relationships and individual counseling stems from my life’s experience, on the job exposure and advanced continuing education. My professional background started in the late 1970s as a nurse-midwife in Israel. In 1985, I immigrated to the USA and continued working as a maternal child nurse. Although nursing was rewarding, I felt that my work was missing a vital mental health component, that I believed was integral to a holistic approach that I wished to provide for my clients. I later obtained an education in counseling, where I focused on relationships and couples. I facilitated support groups for new mothers, new parents, and worked with children and incarcerated women. My work with a diverse population and in different cultures taught me to accept people without judgment. My pursuit for the most current, research based approaches motivates me to continuously take advanced classes and training, and to read and participate in forums and discussions. This ongoing learning process keeps me updated, while refining and expanding my therapeutic approach. In my practice, I strive to provide you with the most empathetic, yet objective environment where you feel heard, respected and validated. Together, we will collaborate to customize a plan and provide you with the most tested, up to date tools and techniques to get to your desired wish. Your input and feedback are crucial to our work together. What sets me apart from other therapists? Style: My roles as a wife and mother, life experience as an immigrant and professional background all work together by deepening my value and respect for people. I view my clients with great perspective, which allows me to balance an empathetic technique with understanding. With this approach, I am better able to provide clients with direct and straight forward therapy. Clients tend to value this way of “not sugar coating”, or “not hiding behind the bush”. Clients’ Comments: “This is exactly what I need.” Specialty: Focusing on relationships and couple counseling, I am known for getting to the root of the issue faster and assisting my clients in customizing the best therapy for them, through educating them on worthwhile, tested approaches. Clients value this method of “nailing it”, or “getting it”. Clients’ comments: “Coming here is like going to an ivy league school”. Client Led Discussion: Together with my clients we continue to evaluate the therapeutic process. I guide my clients to set their pace and progress with confidence and trust. They feel empowered. Clients’ comments: “It feels good, I am hopeful,” and “We have a road map--we are not going to be in therapy forever”. I look forward to working with you.

There have been years of growing stressors and challenges for nearly everyone. My clients typically have described difficulties managing their stress and consistently utilizing stress reduction strategies. They have also shared struggles with managing anxiety, attention, relationships, and depression. Often, my clients want to gain better awareness of their specific challenges; create healthy strategies to manage those difficulties; and establish ways to maintain those changes. My goal is to help others to identify and become the best version of themselves by using a variety of psychological techniques grounded in Cognitive Behavioral Theory (CBT). You want to feel mentally healthy? To show up "better" for yourself and others? To have better awareness and control of your thoughts, feelings, and actions? I invite you to take the next step towards these goals of improved mental health...contact me a call so we can talk about you.

Let us begin to de-stigmatize mental health: people seek oil changes for the car to keep their car running or an annual physical as a part of their yearly medical routine. Mental health therapy can be seen as an emotional tune up. There is no shame in seeking help or support. I use an integrative and person-centered approach to be solution focused on your unique needs. Whatever reason you are seeking counseling I will be here to help process, encourage, and empower you through your therapeutic journey. I graduated from Liberty University in 2013 with a M.A. in Marriage and Family Therapy. I have over 10 years of experience in the mental/behavioral health field. I have experience working with children, teenagers, adults, couples, and families addressing a variety of issues and topics. My specialties include stress management, family systems, and life transitions. I look forward to guiding you through this therapeutic chapter.

My name is Dr. Eric Niler, and I am a licensed psychologist who has been working in private practice for more than 30 years. Using cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), I treat adults with anxiety, depression, chronic pain, trauma/abuse, adjustment disorders, and work-related stresses. In session, my personal approach is caring, compassionate and conscientious, but with a side of humor, since I think it's important that we don't take ourselves too seriously as we try to navigate and adapt to life's many challenges and stressors. Therapy is a collaborative process between patient and therapist, and I will always encourage feedback to ensure that you feel that our work is moving at a good pace and in the right direction, whether you are looking for a short-term, solution-focused process or a more gradual exploration of past and current experiences. I've been providing video telehealth services since the Spring of 2020 and am in the process of transitioning my practice completely to telehealth. While I will provide telephone services when necessary, I prefer video sessions because I believe that visual information and feedback are too important to routinely exclude from the therapy process. I am available for 30-45 minute live telehealth sessions. Although most of my open slots in the calendar are for later in the week, I generally have some availability earlier in the week as well. Feel free to ask if you need a day and/or time not designated as "available." I look forward to meeting and working with you!

I am licensed in Virginia and Tennessee with 11 years of experience in the mental health field. I was trained as a generalist and have practiced as such for most of my career. I have experience helping people of all ages from many different backgrounds with a variety of presenting problems in quite a few different settings. However, I have the most experience working with adults to manage their stress in order to reduce anxiety and depression. I typically approach counseling, first and foremost, from a person-centered perspective. That means I believe you are the expert on your life and ultimately you have the best answers to your problems, and that you’ll realize them with the right kind of support from a counselor who is empathic, genuine, and unconditionally accepting. I also use a strengths-based approach in my counseling, focusing on what is going well for you and how your good qualities can be leveraged to move you toward what you want in life. I draw a lot from existential theory as well, helping you explore your beliefs about the “big questions” in life and your values related to the purpose and meaning of your life. However, being a counselor trained as a generalist in all the major theories and techniques of good psychotherapeutic practice, I’ll try to use any and all tools that we think might be helpful to you in achieving the life you want and helping you feel better. Taking the first step to sign up for therapy can take courage and I’m excited for you to get started!

It is also important to understand that mental health professionals in the United States are accredited to provide care, helping individuals and couples, with a variety of licenses. These include licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW), and clinical psychologist or doctor of psychology (PsyD). Regardless of their licensure, they are trained to treat individuals and couples counseling, and sometimes children, in any type of therapy. Find a therapist under any of these distinctions and know that the sessions they offer can provide a safe place to heal.

Mental health professionals working through their own in- person therapy practice in Round Hill or online may assist clients in improving healthy relationships, communication skills, working through life transitions, managing a mood disorder, improving coping skills, or change in negative thinking patterns.

Frequently asked questions (FAQs)

Some other commonly asked questions on therapy with a licensed counselor and BetterHelp serving the Round Hill area can be found below:

How does the cost of in-person counseling compare to the cost of BetterHelp with a licensed Round Hill therapist?

The average price of an in-person therapy session in the US is $100 to $200 per hour. These prices may be higher in Round Hill due to a higher cost of living. The price also depends on the type of provider you are looking for. See the following average prices for various mental health providers without insurance:

  • Counseling with a psychiatrist: $150-$500
  • Counseling with therapists: $100-300
  • Therapy with a psychologist: $100

While many psychologists in Round Hill may not take health insurance, some in the state of Virginia may work on a sliding scale, meaning they'll factor in your income and charge what you can afford per session. With BetterHelp or clinicians throughout the state of Virginia you can expect significantly more affordable options, with sessions ranging from $65 to $100 per week (billed every four weeks).

How is a licensed therapist on this online therapy platform verified?

Therapists in Round Hill, Virginia working on BetterHelp are licensed, trained, experienced, and accredited as a doctor of psychology (PhD / PsyD), licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFT), licensed clinical social worker (LCSW / LICSW), or licensed professional counselors (LPC). All of these psychology clinicians have a Masters Degree or a Doctorate Degree in their field of psychology sciences, and follow the APA Code of Ethics. They have been qualified and certified by their state's professional board after successfully completing the necessary education, exams, training and practice with a patient, and extensive experience in a healthcare clinic or treatment centers, in order to become a mental health provider. While their lived experience, expertise, careers, and background vary, they all possess at least 3 years and 1,000 hours of hands-on experience with adult and sometimes teen patients, and have the necessary therapist credentials to provide a safe space for long lasting emotional healing in therapy. 

Please note BetterHelp does not offer or provide care from psychiatrists to prescribe a drug as treatment, or perform psychological assessments.

How does working with a counselor in BetterHelp online therapy sessions work?

BetterHelp clinicians treat clients online across the United States (individuals and couples) through life transitions, inner child exploration, long term depression or anxiety, and more. An online mental health professional, including the therapists in Round Hill above, can work with young adults, children, adolescents, and adults virtually as an accredited licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) or licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). You do not have to commute to a an office as a psychotherapy client.

Through BetterHelp therapy, you can partake in video, phone, or live chat therapy sessions with your licensed therapist. You can work through various symptoms, use the in app journaling feature, and receive worksheets. You'll also find support groups or group therapy lead by a therapist in Round Hill helping individuals on topics including managing life transitions, symptoms affecting sexual health, behavioral health, coping skills for anxiety or depression, trauma, stress, marriage counseling, and more. 

What mental health issues can psychotherapy address?

BetterHelp's verified Round Hill therapists specialize and have clinical experience in a wide range of mental health issues and modalities, helping clients to feel better and improve their lives every day. See below for examples.

Specialties on BetterHelp include:

You may also be struggling with relationship problems that could be addressed in couples therapy or with a sex therapist. In that case, you may choose to work with one of BetterHelp's experienced cognitive-behavioral therapists or licensed marriage family therapists (LMFT) who work with clients in relationships. You can also try a Round Hill therapy provider through BetterHelp's sister platform, ReGain, which is dedicated to couples and spouses worldwide. 

How do I know if online counseling is right for my family?

One of the potentially rewarding aspects of working with a therapist is the validation and active listening they can provide. Your friends and loved ones may also be available to listen, but you may feel that they may lack the skills to provide objective guidance. Counselors are trained to respond to various concerns, symptoms, and mental health conditions.

A psychologist in your city can support you toward a healthier emotional state, regardless of your mental health, life concerns, or healing needs. While supporting individuals in developing healthier habits, another good benefit of therapy is having an understanding, safe space with a non-judgmental party who can support you through challenging experiences.

Many people have sensitive topics that they may feel ashamed to discuss with their friends or partner. A Round Hill therapist can help you confront these concerns and open up through unique methods of support. There are also many types of therapy, such as art therapy, where you may find you can express yourself through creativity instead of words.

With a lot of people in VA, providers may be booked out with clients. Through the list of profiles above and others within BetterHelp's team, you may be able to find a psychologist within 24 to 48 hours. If you're searching to find a a nearby psychotherapist close to 20142 or the surrounding zip codes, consider others available through the BetterHelp site. No matter if you are seeking help in your area or beyond, online therapy can be a great option.

How should I prepare for my first therapy session with a Round Hill counselor?

Before seeing your therapist, prep for your session by reading to understand the therapy process. You might write a list of questions you want to ask your psychotherapist, any emotional pain you may feel, and the ways in which you hope to improve. When you attend your session, let them know if you have any concerns about therapy or feel unsure about what to talk about. They may help guide you with open-ended therapeutic questions. The first session will often serve as an intake to get to know you as a person and learn why you're attending therapy.

Should I find a therapist or psychologist if I feel fine? 

Some simply don't feel the need to see a psychologist. However, some people may avoid attending therapy due to stigma or preconceived notions of what therapy entails. Although psychologists often support people with mental health conditions, you do not need a diagnosis or condition to attend therapy. You can discuss grief, relationship concerns, stress, or life changes and ask for general feedback and advice. A Round Hill licensed clinical social worker may help you gain power over your life and emotions while you navigate day-to-day experiences.

Gaining a new perspective on yourself through various therapies might allow you to improve your self-esteem, work through relationships, and gain a better sense of your mental health goals. The success you may find through therapy can be dependent on your process.

People may also attend therapy for specific motives, such as bullying, an autism diagnosis, a desire to learn mindfulness meditation, personality concerns, trouble with office workers, specific phobias, and many other principles.

Is mental health care and therapy worth it? 

Therapy is effective and has the power to change individuals' lives. Each client is at a different stage of their emotional healing journey in life, as each human can be unique in their personality, expression, skills, and goals. A psychologist can target various symptoms, experiences, and personalities to help you feel your best and put you on the path to healing. Unlike advice from a friend, family, or non-professional, a mental health professional has an understanding of various disorders like ADHD and depression with many hours of experience in treating adults in their practice. For this reason, seeing an evidence based psychologist in Round Hill, Virginia can be worth it. Over 41 million adults in the US attend therapy services each year, showing it's a popular option and is proven to be effective.

Round Hill has many clinicians who practice person or client-centered individual therapy in-person and through online therapy to assist clients in their healing journey. If you opt into online therapy, you might also be able to meet with providers all over the United States and change therapists easily at any time. Many people struggling with anxiety and depression, substance abuse, body image issues, and more find therapists that are a good fit for them, feel supported, and gain further insight into their lives through internet-based therapy.

Do therapists judge you in therapy sessions?

The boundaries between you and a therapist are in place to help you and them regarding ethical concerns. Mental health professionals are held by ethical standards through the American Psychological Association (APA) and are not allowed to judge or harm their clients. If you are concerned about sharing details about yourself, feel free to withhold personal information. Their job in the therapeutic relationship is to create a safe place, help you gain a deeper understanding of your mental health, and support you. You might consider changing counselors if you don't feel safe or respected.
