Meet the team supporting our Richmond, Virginia office

From graduate counseling interns to licensed specialists, our Richmond team is here to support adults, children, adolescents, couples, and families.

Session rates vary based on your counselor’s level of experience as well as the length and type of session.

Adrienne Brown, MS

As an art therapist, I often utilize art processes and materials in combination with therapeutic intervention to facilitate healing and growth. I specialize in working with children and adolescents experiencing emotional and behavioral difficulties, as well as neurodivergent individuals. My intention is to help clients discover and utilize their innate personal strengths to navigate life’s many challenges, to live a healthier and happier life, and to ultimately reach their full potential.

Ashley S. Davis, LPC

Ashley Davis, LPC

My counseling approach is person-centered and integrative, with support for adults and couples. I specialize in helping individuals process and heal from traumatic or painful life events, cope with depression and anxiety, navigate relationship challenges, and live in congruence with personal values. I help couples in the areas of communication and conflict management, and I provide premarital counseling for couples seeking to build a strong foundation for marriage.

Brad Carney, MSW

Brad Carney

Whether you have come to explore your identity, are struggling with mental health issues, a life-changing event, or just feeling that something is “off” in life lately, I believe powerful change can happen in the context of a safe and supportive therapeutic relationship. I provide a caring, empathic and nonjudgmental environment where you can explore your current life challenges, as well as address past issues that concern you. I specialize in working with children, adolescents and young adults, including those in the LGBTQIA+ community.

Briana Sinden, M.Ed.

In our time together, I strive to develop your sense of strength, self-understanding, and self-compassion. My support for adults and teens includes trauma work, relationship conflict, substance misuse, emotional regulation, consensual non-monogamy, LGBTQIA+ mental health, and body image work (with a focus on body neutrality and deconstructing diet culture).

Ema Simpson

Life is tough, and we all get knocked down once in a while. I’m here to help you achieve a happier and healthier lifestyle, drawing on your unique strengths. In our sessions together, I utilize mindfulness, motivational interviewing, and cognitive behavioral techniques. I particularly enjoy working with adolescents and young adults experiencing anxiety, struggling with life transitions, and/or trying to bring more balance into their lives.

Jenny Stevens, MA, NCC

Jenny Stevens

I work with children, adolescents, and adults experiencing depression, anxiety, emotional dysregulation, low self-esteem, relationship conflict, suicide ideation, and life transitions. My goal is to provide a collaborative and trusting atmosphere and to consider the holistic needs of each person, including physical, mental, relational, and spiritual wellness.

Joni Shetters, MSW

I have worked with people from a variety of backgrounds and welcome LGBTQIA+ and neurodivergent populations. I use evidence-based, individualized interventions and do not counsel from a particular religious background. I work with individuals and couples to address a variety of issues such as depression, anxiety, dissociation, self-esteem, relationship conflicts, parenting and infidelity. I am devoted to helping you experience therapy in an environment where you feel validated and supported.

Kelsey Meltzer, MS

I believe that we are not exclusively distressed by external things, but by the thoughts and beliefs we take of them. Integrating my unique style and approach to relationships, I aim to help you explore and challenge these beliefs that no longer serve you. As a trained generalist clinician, my areas of interest are primarily focused on sexuality and sexuality-related issues. I help individuals connect to and embrace their sexual and gender identities, work through sexual trauma, explore new levels of intimacy, and improve their overall sexual satisfaction.

Maxine Wylde, MSW

As a therapist I strive to foster a dynamic, generative and trusting relationship to meet you wherever you may be in your journey. My practice is grounded in curiosity, humility and an anti-oppression framework. I am passionate about working with clients to explore their intersecting identities and past experiences as they inform the present. As a member of queer, gender non-conforming, polyamorous and BDSM/kink communities myself, I appreciate the value of working with providers who are not only clinically trained in these areas but may also share identities with their clients.

Melissa Johnson, MA

Melissa Johnson, MA

I recognize the undue mental health burden plaguing today’s women. My support for adolescent and adult women includes anxiety and depression, perinatal mental health, relationship and intimacy issues, life transitions and adjustment, and infertility and/or infant loss. I desire to create a space where you can be authentic and assured that your vulnerability will be engaged with the utmost respect.

Rachel Stinnett, MA

Rachel Stinnett

I believe that each of us, at any point in life, is in our own process of changing, growing, and becoming. I aim to meet my clients wherever they are in that process to support them in achieving their goals and improving their overall well-being. I take a person-centered and strengths-based approach, also drawing on cognitive-behavioral techniques. I work with adolescents and adults with a special interest in working with women as they navigate issues related to identity, parenthood, and career.

Tiffany George

Supporting adults and teens, I provide a holistic, person-centered and Gestalt therapeutic approach with emphasis on family of origin, personal beliefs, and mind/body/spirit connection. I work with a variety of diagnoses to include anxiety, depression, and trauma, along with other issues such as gender and cultural identity, social injustice, life transitions, and parenting.
