My name is Sue McHenry, and I am a licensed Mental Health therapist for the state of Virginia. I offer both standard and Christian, Biblically-based therapy in accordance with your preference.

All therapy offered at this time is via telehealth. A computer is optimum, but we can meet easily over a smart phone. If you are concerned about the technology, please give me a call at the number below and we can discuss it.

Please browse around my web-site for information that will help you make an informed and comfortable decision about whether or not I would be able to help you with your current situation. My desire is for all of my clients to get the help they need to develop their lives in a way that brings them into a state of peace and purpose. If you feel I would be able to help you in that journey, then please get in touch with me to set up an appointment. At the end of that appointment, we can decide together if we will be the best team for the work you want to do.

Today's Treasure

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing, so that also at the revelation of His glory you may rejoice with exultation.
1 Pet 4:12-13
