Part 2 – 'As far as life in this world goes, I cannot do it. I cannot conform to a society that's wrong yet insists it's right. I can't lie & live in this fucking fantasy world where you force yourself to believe everything is hunky dory. THIS WORLD & IT'S WAYS ARE WRONG!!! I can't do things I concider unneccessary. I cannot live a life where my every move is ultimately dictated by someone else. My life is so governed it's ridiculous. And why? I can't live a nice life because someone else doesn't like whatever & restricts me. I can't be 'happy' cause that would influence someone elses idea of being 'happy'? Why can't I go overseas? Why can't I race cars? Why can't I have a good time? Because someone else somewhere forbids it cause they want things to be their way? No. Fuck that. I'm a very considerate person as far as I'm concerned. I don't think I'm unreasonable with my actions. I'm only a prick if I get treated like one. I'm no saint, but I'm not as bad as this world makes me out to be. This world is wrong yet forces that it's 'right'… I can't live like this. I don't understand this world. I refuse to be a part of it. It's wrong. What makes some right guy successful? Because he has a fancy car, a large house, lots of money & a family? At the end of the day he's just doing what makes him 'happy'. So if I find a certain amount of happiness by sitting on my bed and playing games all day, what's wrong with that? Because I don't see or believe what humans all do, I'm wrong? No. Everyone mistakes lies for optimism. Or vice versa. You cannot do everything you want in life. So why lie to yourself & chase goals that you can't achieve? Once again, cause others don't agree, so fuck you, you can't be happy cause their happiness always comes first. I'm NOT negative, I'm realistic. If something is the way it is, then that's it. I won't lie to myself to make myself feel better & give myself a false sense of accomplishment. I can go on & on, on sevral topics forever… But what's the point? If any of you even read this, it's just in through the eyes & out the ears. I know. It's always like that in this family. I really suffer with my mind & emotions, you have no idea the mental things I do in my own privacy. It's hard… It hurts so much… And as everyone has their limits, this is mine. I cannot cannot cannot feel like this anymore. I've suffered enough. I'm so so so sorry for the bad things I've done in life & the people I've hurt. I'm so sorry life doesn't come with an instruction manual. It's unneccessarily hard… I hate humans. I hate life. I hate… This world has convinced me that everything is always my fault. No matter what. Humans are pathetic & I'm disgraced to be one. I really love you guys, but I'm bust losing the last thing that's keeping me from going right off the edge…' And that's where I stopped. If anyone bothered reading this, I thank you very much for taking the time. That alone means alot to me. Well it's now 3:40 AM & my birthday… Not that it means much anymore… The way I'm feeling right now, anything could happen, so let's see what happens….

Welcome to Williamsburg Youth Counseling, by Dane Wendell, LPC. We are excited to be in Williamsburg and to provide services to the youth in our community, through our private counseling practice. While working with your child/teen, we are able to help them navigate through their emotions and feelings along with teaching them healthy coping mechanisms. We specialize in working with youth dealing with depression, anxiety, stress, and the compounding concerns associated with them. Our practice believes that working with youth is drastically different than working with adults. Children and teens do not care about our philosophies, our educational backgrounds, or our theoretical orientations. What they do care about is their ability to relate to our counselors. Our youth today need to feel comfortable, supported, and most importantly, heard. We are able to help your child feel comfortable when starting or continuing their journey in bettering their mental health and overall wellbeing.
I have been in private practice seeing adults and couples since 2004. I love my job and feel so fortunate to be able to work with people on living their best lives. I tailor sessions to the needs of the client- whether setting measurable goals, processing emotions in a safe space, changing habits or increasing self awareness.
When people see you, they think you have a perfect life. You're focused, determined, and accomplished, but when you look on the inside, you feel lost and incapable of living up to your potential. You see the negative version of yourself, and no matter how hard you try to change, you just haven't been able to get over that hump. It's become exhausting, and you feel like giving up. Don't be last in your own life, while taking care of everyone else. You're tired of always having to be strong, when you feel like everything is against you. Instead of living life stressed out, it's time for a change. You want to finally relax and enjoy the life you’ve worked so hard to create. You want to learn this whole "self-care" thing and finally learn how to put yourself first without feeling guilty or selfish. You're ready to quiet the inner critic so that you can feel more positive and create the change you want in your life. I can help you get there.

When we opened our doors in 1980, we were the very first private mental health group practice in Chesterfield County. From the beginning, we were welcomed with open arms by the Chesterfield Community Mental Health Center, physicians, schools and the community at large. Over the past three decades, we have been an established and highly trusted source for psychological care. In 2001, Family Guidance Centers made another hallmark decision, reaching out to provide mental health services to the underserved community of Powhatan. In 2016, we expanded to serve the needs of the fast-growing Midlothian area. In 2020, Family Guidance Centers opened a new location to serve the community of Henrico and Richmond city area. We also began offering Telehealth services as an integral part of our practice. In June 2021, we opened our Virginia Beach location to serve the Tidewater area!
