what a day… I've been on the edge of a total melt down for some time now. My therapist has encouraged me to write an angry do-not-send letter to my mom. Today I was supposed to go to the mall with my 9 yr old daughter and her friend so I got dressed into something decent, put on some make-up ect, made myself human, was actually looking forward to getting a new pair of shoes. Mine have holes in them and no ankle support and I never do anything for myself and my birthday is coming up….anyway I digress….her friend shows up and says "oh ya we have to go sell girl guide cookies first and I didn't know you were coming so…..I'm not sure what to do (the mom is driving them around obviously, they aren't alone or anything) so I'm like "fine whatever" and slammed a few things around my apartment after they left, curled up in a ball on the floor and sobbed like a fucking baby. I have been feeling so rejected and alone lately all I could think was wow I can't even get a couple of 9 year olds to hang out with me. So I used some "anger stratagies" my therapist taught me (won't she be pleased?) like pushing with all my strength against a wall to release the physical anger instead of punching the shit out of myself like I have done in the past. And I thought "alright what is this really about?" and of course the underlying core issue is my mother's abondonment so after some more tears I finally sat down and wrote the letter I have been putting off for so long. The sad thing is I don't feel any better, not really. But at least that unpleasentness is behind me for now. All I can say is denial is the most powerful force in this world. It trumps love every time.

Seeking an alternative to traditional therapy? That’s why I’m here. My tools range from innovative new mind-body modalities (e.g., Energy Psychology) to the most ancient spiritual/energetic modality (shamanic healing). These tools enable me to help clients address most of the problems that licensed mental health professionals do – plus some they can’t. And usually do it more efficiently. This is the main reason I almost always have one or more licensed therapists as clients. See the testimonials on my website.

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.
