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.

Prell is very understanding and super easy to talk to. He’s a wonderful counselor and you can tell he has great experience. Highly recommend
Prell has the ability to challenge me to think, feel, and respond in a methodical way that helps me understand myself and believe in myself. I am learning to trust what I am saying and feeling, and creating a pathway to move forward with intent that I am comfortable with who I am. Any emotions, thoughts or beliefs that may have developed, taught, or followed by, positive or negative, is discussed to understand and processed in a matter to have a accountability and take ownership with purpose and/or intent for my growth. I truly enjoy our sessions and look forward to each session as I am walking away weekly with confidence to continue to learn, understand and grow to my fulfilled purpose. Creating my tools of success to process who I was then, who I am now, and where I want to be moving forward.
Therapy sessions with Prell Gross have led to breakthrough, fresh and profound personal insight and overall progress in my healing journey. I actually enjoy our time as I feel confident that I am seen, heard and supported by Prell. He brings his expertise to the table without an agenda, honors my request to be challenged and dig deeper, while remaining encouraging and approachable. Super grateful for Prell!

Prell has been amazing. I really appreciate the past few months and how he helped me better understand my family and improve relationships with everyone.
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
