Hello, my name is Joe Gasperini. I live in Southern Virginia after having grown up in upstate New York and Los Angeles, CA. I am married and the father of eight children ranging in age from 15 to 39. During my spare time I am interested in activities of my children, sports (especially golf), travel, and insight into social behavior.
Therapy is a place where you can feel heard in a supportive, comfortable and warm environment. When life is overwhelming and stressful, or relationships are struggling, counseling can help. As a Licensed Professional Counselor, we will work together to help you reduce the suffering you may feel. I want to hear about what is hurting you and stopping you from moving forward in a happy and positive way in your life. Together we will decide on a plan of action to get you back to where you want to be as quickly as possible and develop a way to keep you there.
Due to my very diverse background and having gone through many of life's ups and downs myself, I have learned how best to treat a multitude of life's issues. This also helps to come up with effective plans to alleviate problems by understanding where you are coming from.
Having gone to Liberty University for my graduate work to become a Licensed Professional Counselor, I have been immersed in being involved in a distinctively Christian environment. All classes were based from and included Christian teachings and beliefs. I am a member of the Association of Christian Counselors of America. I am a member of Trinity Episcopal Church and all my children have grown up in a Christian environment.
My approach to counseling is interactive, down-to-earth and collaborative. I strive to create a comfortable, non-judgmental environment where you feel free to openly discuss whatever issues you feel most important. Together, we can work to give you the tools you need to create the life you want.
I have BS degree in Finance and Economics from Syracuse University and a MA degree in Licensed Professional Counseling from Liberty University.
I look forward to working with you.

I really am grateful for Faithful Counseling and in particular my Counselor, Joe Gasperini. He has provided excellent advice thus far! He takes time to listen and is very encouraging and supportive. I would definitely recommend him to anyone.
I love the sessions with Joe, he really keeps it real with me, and he really gets me.
Mr. Gasperini listens to me and responds appropriately. I felt he cared about my concerns and he sincerely and professionally tried to assist me. He gave sound, Christian counsel. He is easy to talk with.
Joe is very insightful. He never fails to understand and get to the heart of the issue/concern and offers relevant, practical perspectives. He has been a great help to me on multiple levels. I highly recommend him as a counselor.
He knew what the problem was from the beginning of our conversation. Very easy to talk too and polite. 5 stars
He has been helpful. Good listener and offers options.
