Guiding You on the Path of Self-Healing
Chances are, if you are curious about therapy, you are experiencing a wide range of difficult emotions such as confusion, helplessness, frustration, or even hopelessness. You may have already tried to "read your way out" of this, and you are desperate to find answers. We see you, and are here to guide you towards healing.
At Cohesive Counseling, our intention is to help clients develop insight, understanding, and self-compassion. Increased awareness is paramount when learning how past experiences can affect our present mindsets, beliefs, narratives, emotions, and choices.
INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY + PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY = HEALING
It is our intention to offer a space where we can explore your inner world, together. The dark doesn't have to feel so alone. There is no thought, emotion, or personal belief that can ever be "too much" in this space. You can learn how to remain self-supporting present. To meet yourself, and your pain, with compassion.
Ideal clients are simply curious and open to learn about themselves. We appreciate a dedication to the process of therapy, and a willingness to allow trust to form between client and therapist. If you feel that you have “hit a wall” in your personal development, need assistance with figuring out how to cope or heal from past events/relationships, or desire a space to process and explore the intersectionality of the many identities you hold, we will likely be a great fit.
Few come to therapy with simple and straightforward challenges. More often, the complexities of the human experience feel like a knot to untangle. We are trained to treat a wide range of difficulties in order to better help you address your goals including:
Healing from the Narcissist in your life
Spiritual (non-denominational) Development
Assertiveness and Boundary Setting
Complex and Childhood Trauma
Difficulty with Relationships
Compassion Fatigue and Burnout
Growth and Life Enhancement
Grief and Loss
WHAT TO EXPECT
We know how much courage it takes to reach out for support for the first time (or for the first time, in awhile). Here you will be treated with the respect, empathy, and compassion that your courage deserves, from a team that has been there, too.
We will start with a 15-minute complimentary consult, which will be done via our safe and secure video platform. This allows you to get to know a little about your therapist, and give them a brief outline of your concerns, and initial goals for treatment.
Your First Session
During your first meeting, we will talk about you and your life, and discuss the concerns that brought you to us. Together we will use this information to start to define your goals for therapy.
Effective therapy is a joint effort. Different people find different methods helpful, and that is what makes therapy that works look different for everyone. This also means that your input and feedback on the work we will do together is not only helpful, but necessary.
When you are ready to do the work that is required for growing, changing, and mastering new skills, we are here to support and guide you. Click one of the links below to schedule your complimenary consulation .
LEARN ABOUT WHO WE ARE
Where scientific research meets clinical application.
All of us get "stuck" at some point in our lives. It doesn't mean we are broken. The work is to find our way back to healthy and meaningful living. We can help you connect with strengths you already possess while also building new insight and new skills to move towards a rich and meaningful life.

At Cohesive, our highest priority is the quality of care we provide to our clients,to our local Richmond community, and the state of Virginia. Continued education, ethical practice, and respect for our clients are our top values. Not only do we attend frequent trainings and consultation with other therapists in the field, but we consider self-awareness and self-knowledge a vital component of providing the best care to our clients. We believe in staying up-to-date with the latest research while also holding in mind that each person is an individual, and that this work is as much an art as a science.
We only work with a select number of clients at a time in order to provide personalized care, time, and attention to each client. We hold ethical standards throughout every inch of our practice and pledge to never practice outside our areas of expertise.
We serve our clients with compassion and respect regardless of age, gender identity, race, diagnoses, ability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic background. We stand with those speaking out against racism, prejudice, oppression, and injustice. We are committed to examining our own privileges as an ongoing practice, rather than a destination or one-time act. In our therapeutic work, we are devoted to creating an atmosphere of openness and encourage exploration of how each of us relates to these issues.
