somedays it's a struggle in our recovery to just work on ourselves. as a person with a few days back to back, i realize that i cannot save every addict i come into contact with either in person or on the internet. i work so hard with sponsees and sometimes i forget to look at myself and my personal recovery
some people might call this old-timersitus. while we carry a strong, postive message of experience, strength and hope we forget ourselves we get so busy trying to get a positive message through to the newcomer. sometimes we lose a bit of our spirituality, peace and serenity. sometimes we get angry when people don't grasp the simplicity of this program that has saved our ass time and time again.
in my area there is only 3 of us in NA with 20 years or more. a couple of inbetweeners but mostly people with 7 years or less. while i sponsor a lot of guys i don't do the
I have to work on me for a while. i don't know about any of you other folks who have some time behind you. i have not lost focus on recovery. just feeling like nobody wants to step up and get sh*t done. we need the Unity put back into NA and it needs to be done soon.
we have a majority of people in my part of HI that have 6 months or less because they choose to go back out even after being clean for a while. then after the relapse drag their asses back into the rooms just to tell us how crappy it truly was back out there. instead of working this simple 12 step program for a better way of life. Nothing i can say will stop somebody from going back out. we can only hope that you hear something in the rooms of recovery that will f#@K your using up. Now i am getting crap, from know it all's in AA. do you know how many people in AA still smoke dope. Do you say anything to those guys. I have been through hell and back and if i choose a different natural way to ease my chronic pain then I will do so.Yes I smoke Legal Pot 3 times a day. at 59 years old I can handle it today. remember Recovery is a journey not a destination and use the rest stops God provides along the way…….

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.
Seeking therapy is a courageous first step toward the relief you are searching for and need. Therapy provides the opportunity to more deeply reflect on self, experiences, and circumstances. Together we can bring healing to your mental health. We have a team of licensed therapists in DC, Maryland, and Virginia providing online therapy to those seeking to improve their lives.

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 currently work with adolescents, adults, couples and families using a combination of cognitive behavioral therapy, family systems therapy, person-centered therapy, and narrative therapy to address client’s needs. I provide support to clients while addressing a variety of topics including depression, anxiety, stress, life transitions, relationship difficulties, self-esteem issues, and women’s issues.
I am a LPC (Licensed Professional Counselor) in the Commonwealth of Virginia. I entered this profession to help individuals in a variety of ways. If you are seeking coping skills for anxiety/depression or anger management, learning to live with bipolar or schizophrenia disorder, feel "stuck" in advancing to the next phase of life, mourning a loved one or relationship, or looking for support through the journey of recovery- I'd be honored to work with you.
