sharon-krumpeSharon Krumpe

I am licensed in the Commonwealth of Virginia as both a Professional Counselor (LPC) and a Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT).

I earned a Master’s Degree in Community and Addictions Counseling from the College of William & Mary (MS.Ed.); I later earned from the College a Doctor of Philosophy Degree (PhD), in the field of Counselor Education and Training, with an emphasis in couples and family therapy. I have been married for 44 years and am the proud mother of three wonderful, grown children. Although I have lived in Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, California, Maryland, Montana, and Washington, DC, Virginia remains my first love; in 1992, I returned to live in the place where I was born.

In early 2003, following a six-year affiliation with New Horizons Family Counseling Center at the College of William & Mary, I opened a private therapy practice in the small village of Chuckatuck, located in Suffolk, VA. Although my specialty is couples and family therapy, I also counsel individuals of all ages and provide life coaching services.


Char Bentley

I am a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) and a Board-Certified Diplomat (BCD) in Clinical Social Work with over 10 years of experience with providing therapy to individuals of all ages. After receiving my Bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Pittsburgh, I returned to my hometown of Baltimore where I earned my Master’s degree in Social Work from the University of Maryland. I began my professional career by providing counseling services at a non-profit, therapeutic foster care program. I later worked with adults, adolescents, and children at a community-based mental health program in Maryland.

In September of 2012, I took on a new challenge by commissioning into the United States Navy. While serving I held onto the same goal I always had – helping others to overcome traumatic and stressful events, while assisting them in building resiliency to withstand the future storms of life. I have enjoyed various opportunities to do just that, whether it was through providing counseling to children and adolescents at Department of Defense schools in Japan; providing individual therapy, group therapy, and crisis interventions at Naval Medical Center Portsmouth; or providing supportive counseling at a Fleet and Family Services Office overseas.

Now a freshly minted veteran, I am eager to continue my pursuit of supporting individuals and families as they overcome obstacles and achieve peace. Most of my professional experience has focused on assisting those who struggle with the aftermath of trauma, but I also have extensive experience working with anxiety disorders, mood disorders, adjustment disorders, grief and loss, family conflict, and relationship distress. I believe mental and emotional well-being is essential to one’s overall health and thus, counseling can be an integral part of achieving a healthy and fulfilling life.


Caroline Slone

I am a Virginia Licensed Clinical Social Worker with over 20 years working with adolescents and adults, including civilian and military populations.   My professional experience includes practice in both public and private settings, providing crisis intervention, case management and therapy for both behavioral health and substance use concerns.  Current practice interests include dealing with depression, anxiety, emotional regulation, adjustment and life transitions, relationship/couples concerns and substance use.

A native of the Southside area, I hold a Master's degree in Psychology from Old Dominion University and a Masters in Social Work from Norfolk State University.  My personal interests include a love of plants, animals and marine life, as well as community, family and friends.

When working with clients, my goal is to treat each person with respect, meeting clients as they are, to identify and build upon personal goals, resources, supports, opportunities and motivation for change.  I believe it is important not to overlook the biology, psychology and social factors in each person's situation, and to invite individuals and couples to uncover their potential.  Come, let's talk!
