Are you feeling stuck, empty, or disconnected? You may be working harder than necessary because you are fighting against patterns that developed over many years. If you find yourself stuck in the same patterns, there is a way to break free. You can feel peace about your past and excitement and hope towards your future. We all have the courage and wisdom within us, but at times we need help reconnecting with those strengths and reinforce the tools needed to move through difficult issues. If you want to break this cycle, you're in the right place!
My name is Bob Wubbenhorst and I am excited to walk along with you on your wellness journey! I have an earned Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies in Counselor Education and Supervision. I am a National Certified Counselor (NCC), Approved Clinical Supervisor (ACS), Clinical Hypnotherapist (CHt), and a Vermont Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor (LCMHC). In over 16 years of practice, I have worked in a wide variety of locations, including community mental health, higher education and private practice, providing both individual and group counseling. My theoretical orientation is considered integrative with a focus on Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy and Hypnotherapy. Specific clinical populations that I have served include veterans, law enforcement, severely mentally ill adults in a day treatment setting, and school-based clinical work in secondary education, among others. I have extensive experience in counselor education and supervision (including both graduate interns and post-masters licensure candidates) crisis intervention, suicide prevention and mental health first-aid. My clinical focus is varied but mostly I work with clients that have experienced depression, anxiety and trauma.
Please reach out if you have questions or would like to talk more. I understand that finding the right counselor can take time, and I take no offense if we try this out and you feel like it isn't the right fit. Overall, I value honesty and want you to feel empowered to do what's best for you.

I think what makes a good therapist is the ability to listen and give a perspective without forcing it. I appreciate his ability to do that
