About me

Hello, my name is Maurice J. Ponder and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia. I received my Masters of Arts in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. I have been in the mental health field for the past 10 years and I have a heart for individuals who struggle to cope with life’s stressors. I take an eclectic approach to therapy; I have a desire to see individuals meet one’s goals, grow, and live life to the fullest. I have worked in several different settings over the years, including detoxification units, crisis stabilization units, and psychiatric hospitals. Additionally, I have worked with various populations throughout the years ranging from children and teenagers who struggle with Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, anxiety, and depression to adults who live with bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, and schizophrenia. Currently, I serve individuals in a public mental health agency where I assess and work closely with individuals who battle with a serious mental illness daily.

Written on Apr 06, 2020 after therapy with Maurice for 2 weeks on issues concerning depression, stress, anxiety, relationship issues, family conflicts, trauma and abuse, grief, intimacy-related issues, parenting issues, self esteem, anger management, and coping with life changes

Maurice's kindness, professionalism, and engagement have been pivotal in providing guidance to develop coping skills to address detrimental thought processes; his insights have been of great benefit.
