Fonya Lord Helm, PhD, ABPP, Psychologist in Virginia Beach
Educated at Harvard and George Washington University, I have had more than 30 years of experience helping people make good changes in their lives. People find me easy to talk to and I am very accepting and non-judgmental. Most people that I see want help with anxiety, depression, stresses at work, sexual challenges and relationship issues. Aging brings special stresses, like inevitable losses of loved ones and health problems. If you are looking for a therapist to help you feel better and to improve the quality of your life and relationships, I may be a good therapist for you.
I specialize in individual psychotherapy, couple psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. The work I do is tailored for your particular issues and needs. We work together until you feel more comfortable and confident. Many people I have helped return when new problems develop, and they often refer friends and family members.
My home office is very peaceful and private, and you usually will not see anyone else. I also work by telephone, FaceTime, and Skype. I am licensed in five states (VA, MD, DC, FL, and CO) and can work with employees of the federal government in any state or country.
