Yuri Gooding, LPC (VA)


Whatever your reasons are for looking into therapy, I want to congratulate you for deciding to take those crucial first steps towards making positive change. Deciding to make changes in life can be difficult and stressful, but with the right therapeutic support those changes can become easier and more manageable. Together, we will collaborate to set goals, build a deeper understanding of maladaptive patterns, and explore ways to manage the stress and issues you are facing.

I have been a professional in the field for over 10 years, and it has been an honor to work extensively with adults, families, children, teenagers, and parents on issues related to communication and parenting, ADHD, defiance, anxiety, depression, life transitions, addictions, and LGBTQ+ issues. I use techniques from DBT (Dialectical Behavioral Therapy), CBT (Cognitive Behavioral Therapy) and Solution-Focused Therapy to help clients create the outcomes they want in their lives.

I believe that lasting behavioral and emotional changes can be made by anyone and whether you are an individual or family, I am happy to speak with you regarding questions you may have. If you are ready for the next step towards achieving your therapeutic goals, then let’s schedule a session together
