Virginia Haesler, MSW, LCSW
Verified clinicians have had their licenses confirmed by our staff at the time they create their profile. We also require all verified therapists keep their licensing information up to date in order to maintain verified status.
Send your prospective therapist a brief message about why you’re seeking support, your preference for in-person or telehealth services, and how you’d like to be contacted moving forward. Note: Answers to many common questions can be found on the therapist’s profile page. If this is an emergency, please call 911 or go to your nearest hospital.
I focus on providing tele mental health counseling for adults.
"If we share our story with someone who responds with empathy and understanding, shame can't survive." -Brene Brown.
Sometimes life can feel overwhelming, sad, devastating, joyful, confusing and complicated. If you are struggling with the variety of emotions that come with being human, you are not alone. We all experience challenges and need to reach out for help at some point in our lives. It takes courage to ask for help. Connecting with a mental health professional is the first and sometimes the hardest step toward helping yourself. Well done! I would be honored to be a part of your journey.
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker in the states of Virginia and Florida. I graduated in 2001 with a Master's degree in Social Work from Indiana University, and have over 10 years counseling experience (I took a few years off to raise four children). My experience includes working with children, adolescents, families, couples and older adults in the clinical setting, schools, as well as intensive in-home counseling. Specific experience includes treating issues related to anxiety, obsessive compulsive disorder, depression, relationships, child development, behavior modification, ADHD/ADD, parenting, grief, geriatric issues, and career challenges. Most recently, I have been working virtually in private practice mostly with adults of all ages. Each individual is unique and requires a personalized approach. I strive to provide an environment that puts clients at ease in order to feel heard, safe, and capable of being open and honest about their thoughts and feelings. If this can be accomplished, we can work together to develop a treatment plan to achieve your personal goals.
I am available for live sessions virtually Monday-Friday 9am-3pm. I look forward to hearing from you and working together!
