Online Therapy / Counseling in Virginia

Lifestyle Design Coaching anywhere

Hi, I’m Andrea Shipley.

I’ve dedicated years of my life to becoming the kind of Holistic Counselor (LPC in Virginia) and Lifestyle Design Coach I always hoped I’d find. In fact, I’ve dedicated years to learning what it takes to live a fulfilling life of balance.

You might be wondering how to be happy just being you! 

When you enter a relationship with me (through Lifestyle Design Coaching or online Holistic Therapy in Virginia), you’ll have a mentor, confidante, and healer on your side. I’ll offer gentle guidance and thoughtful challenges. This will help you contact your inner knowing, which holds the keys to your authentic success and well-being.

I have no doubt that you can accomplish quite a lot on your own. However, if you feel stuck and unable to explore your potential alone, then it’s time to reach out for help from someone who knows the terrain of healing and transformation.

More About Me


Whether Counseling or Lifestyle Design Coaching:

Perhaps you’re doing “ok” in life but you feel stuck, bored, or unsatisfied … so you want to ramp things up by re-designing your lifestyle in order to create a more fulfilling life and evolve consciously,

OR you feel really stressed and overwhelmed, like you’re just kind of scraping by in life so you think counseling / therapy can help you build that strong emotional foundation…

Either way, are you ready to make the most of your unique journey and invest in a healthier life?

There’s something here for you…

What’s the best option for you?

Online Therapy or Lifestyle Design Coaching?

If you’re experiencing severe internal pain or mental health issues like feelings of anxiety, depression, trauma, impulsivity, or spiritual concerns, therapy / counseling will likely be the best option. Therapy helps build a strong emotional foundation while focusing on recovery from past hurts.

If you’re located in Virginia, then set up a counseling consultation to see how Andrea can help.

You’ll also see mindfulness therapy options available for people looking for Spiritual Counseling or coping with their high-stress work as Healthcare professionals.

If you have a pretty solid mental and emotional foundation already, but need help to develop the courage and skills necessary to live a more bold and fulfilling life, then Lifestyle Design Coaching is best. Also, you can be located anywhere to work with Andrea as your coach.

You’ll see additional coaching options are available for Spiritual Integration. This is a great option for people making sense of spiritual experiences they’ve had with meditation, plant medicines or other practices and rituals.

It’s easy to fall into unhelpful routines…

You feel unsatisfied and out of balance and each day looks like the last.

You tell yourself that tomorrow is a new day and you’ll start doing the real work then. Tomorrow you’ll start to investigate difficult feelings and work on accepting yourself. Unfortunately, that tomorrow doesn’t come. You put it off for the next tomorrow instead … and the next. Will that day ever come?

What seemed like a short-term race can turn into years and decades of non-stop hustle and emotional avoidance.

It’s a little harder to create healthy routines!

The truth is, it won’t resolve on its own but you can choose to take action TODAY to improve your life. Reach out for online Counseling in Virginia with Andrea Shipley, LPC to start reducing anxiety and feeling more alive and intentional.
