A counselor can be a person who makes sure your train is chugging along at just the right speed. All you need to do is to speak to a counselor today in West Virginia.

“If there are no ups and downs in your life it means you are dead.” ~Unknown I won’t promise all your symptoms or problems will go away, from my experience as a clinician and as a person, it is not realistic. We tell ourselves “If I can just get to *blank* then I will be okay.” Once we finally reach there, we still have a challenge we are faced with. What is the point then, if we are always going to have ups and downs? The point is to learn how to enjoy life even when faced with challenges. To take life in a direction that we want rather than controlled by...

I typically practice a holistic, person-centered approach. Holistic in that we will explore topics such as diet, exercise and self-care, to name a few. Person centered, in that your own understanding of your experience is the platform from which we will begin. We work together to discover what you need. Also, I am learning the Internal Family Systems (IFS) model and this will play a significant role in the approach I will take in our interactions. To that end, you will learn to welcome and engage with emotions in a way that is empowering and deeply healing. ...

I find that the foundation of a good therapeutic relationship is trust and rapport. Although a therapist's experience and education should certainly be taken into account, finding a therapist that you feel conveys true warmth and empathy is of great importance. I have been a social worker for 17 years. My first 9 years of practice were at the undergraduate level and mostly involved case management and advocacy for mentally ill and developmentally disabled populations. In 2012 I earned my Master's Degree and learned skills associated with Trauma Focused Cognitive B...
