What's going on?! My name is Prell and I'm a licensed professional counselor in the state of Virginia. I've been in the field for 10 years and practicing as a licensed clinician now for 3 years. I'm a proud HOKIE! and graduate of Radford University where I received degrees in Psychology, Spanish, and Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Assessment. Counseling is not just a job to me, but more an extension of self. I've always enjoyed helping people, specifically helping people better learn how to help themselves. The goal is to support you so well and help you grow through things, that you eventually need much less intervention or can transition out of services successfully because you've gained the skills and built the resilience needed to handle life's challenges.
My approach to counseling is eclectic and holistic, using techniques from Motivational Interviewing, Person-centered treatment, Reality Therapy techniques, the all very common CBT, components of DBT, and Post-Modern practices such as Solution-Focused Therapy and Narrative Therapy. The latter two of which help a person improve their ability to focus on solutions instead of problems, enhance their use of solutions that already work, and own their story in order to re-author it in a way that's empowering! In my services, you get a dynamic counselor who's laid-back yet focused, enjoys the use of humor, and brings comfort to counseling by creating a safe-space for discussion that allows you to open-up in the capacity most comfortable for you.
I'm a big family and friendmily guy, love watching and playing sports, and avid fan of cooking. You can often find me spending time with my family, grilling and smoking meats in my downtime, playing with my Shepherd mix and Rottweiler pup, or on the sticks of my gaming systems. I look forward to working with you and helping you find the holistic balance you need in better managing your mental health to achieve your goals.

This is not my first rodeo. Maybe it’s timing, maybe it’s age, maybe I’m just more ready, maybe it’s Better Health and Prell , or maybe it’s all of those things; whatever it is, I am eternally grateful that I found Prell.
He listens. He really listens. Like almost annoyingly well. He will hit you with “you just said...” Lol. Now, I can laugh about things I used to be defensive about, That feels like healing. I am on the road to recovery. FINALLY.
he continues to be very insightful and respectful
I've been working with Prell for a couple of months, and with his guidance have been able to lower my stress levels, take control of my life, and effectively communicate my needs to my family. Highly recommend Prell!
Prell is an extremely thoughtful and engaging counselor. He can always provide something for me to think about and has been extremely helpful for me in such a comparatively short time.
I have only been working with Prell for a couple weeks and already he has given me some tools that are new to me and seem to be helping. We have developed a quick rapport. He actively listens and gives feedback as needed. He is extremely supportive, well spoken, and smart. Prell is a great therapist.
Prell is amazing. He really helps me.
Really good listener and gives tips and advice to help you
Prell is a fantastic individual, I’ve been going through a lot in my life and he’s been there every week to help me work through my struggles. I would highly recommend anyone to him.
Prell Gross has helped me understand aspects of my life that have held me back. I truly appreciate the advice and exercises he has recommended me. Over the course of just two weeks I feel confident and positive because of the sessions I have had with Prell. I am glad I gave this platform a chance and that it matched me with Prell.
Prell is great! Really enjoying working with him. His approach is straight forward and encourages critical thinking.
