Hi, I’m Dr. Adina Silvestri, the founder at Life Cycles Counseling. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist, and Certified Brainspotter in Richmond, Virginia. I offer a variety of counseling services to help you achieve balance and authenticity. My services include Individual Counseling, Family Counseling, Couples Counseling, and Group Counseling. My Practice style is spontaneous, creative and designed to fit your needs which may be different each session. I have 20 years of experience helping individuals, children and families with a variety of needs, but I specialize in treating women with substance abuse issues, as well as people with anger management issues and helping children who have experienced trauma lead full and healthy lives.

When you come in for your initial visit, you will immediately sense a warm, compassionate and caring environment. After we meet and you decide to tell your story, then I am ready to join you as a partner on your journey.

My office setting is handicapped accessible and is centrally located in the Jefferson office building down the road from Henrico Doctors hospital in Richmond, Virginia. There are no wait lists-you will be seen within one week. I also offer late evening appointments for the convenience of my clients. I look forward to helping you become a more authentic you!

Dr. Silvestri thinks outside of the box to help her clients recover and heal! She is one of the few therapists I know who will treat addiction without requiring 12-step. She offers unique approaches and gets amazing results in weeks when it takes others months or years. I highly recommend her as an accomplished and respected professional!”

I recommend Adina Silvestri wholeheartedly. She’s kind, compassionate and eager to help those of us who want and need help. I’ve been seeing her for a year and my only regret is that I did not find her sooner. Let her know what you need and expect and she’ll do her part to help you. If you are serious about wanting help, look no further. Life Cycles Counseling is for you.

Adina is very good. She makes me slow down and really think about in-depth specifics on situations and ways to help me cope with them, so I don’t get into the same destructive habits. Thank you for taking me on and helping me in a very low, self-destructive point in my life. We still have work to do, but I can’t do this alone. I tried and failed repeatedly. So again, thank you!!
