Arnold believes that our emotional well-being hinges on one central theme: our relationships. “The social environment in which we live has a tremendous impact on how we act and how we feel. “ By improving our relationships, we will experience positive, measurable change in our lives. These emotional bonds are the key to our mental well-being and happiness.” By helping people – couples, families or individuals -make changes in their patterns of interaction and communication, Arnold helps his clients to achieve the results they are looking for.   “I am inspired each day by the wisdom and power of my clients. I am always learning from them as we work together to create lasting change.”

Arnold’s extensive experience as a therapist and as a leader in the mental health field in Richmond, VA as well as statewide has led to his commitment to the use of Feedback-Informed Treatment (FIT) to empower his clients. “At Help Your Way, we work with our customers in a unique and collaborative way.
