I've had a rough time of it lately. One of the medicines I was on was majorly messing me up. I was so tired; I was worried about functioning. I had my psychiatrist take me off it. I tried everything to make this medicine work for me. It didn't matter if I went to bed earlier or I took less of a dose; still exhausted. Now, because I was taking less of a dose, I've been cycling between hypomania and depression very rapidly. So, now I'm on a new medication. This is my second day. That's been rough too because it's making me nauseous. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to take this medicine. I've been on many medications. In my experience, side effects may go away with time. I'm hoping it will be that way for this one. So, now i have to worry about cycling, nauseousness, and whether this medication is even going to be able to help me. I've been all over the place this past week, more so than what is normal for me. I can be euphoric, depressed, and irritable, all in the same day. Cycling so fast is tiring. The constant ups and downs and never knowing when my mood is going to switch. It's almost more tiring this way than if I was depressed all day. I do not feel well mentally, emotionally, or physically. I will try to be positive here for a moment. I am glad to be off the old medicine. I was much more alert today. This new medicine has taken off some of the edge already. I take another medicine in part to help with irritabiity which helps me out alot. But, with this new medicine I'm already less irritable. Additionally, I can finally fall asleep naturally. Either because of drowsiness or it has helped me come off some of the hypomania. I'm not sure which yet. I need to figure that out so I know what time of day to take it. I had a psychiatric nurse practioner years ago tell me I was out of options for medication. I was very anxious the day of my psychiatrists appointment . I was nervous he would think that too and it has just taken him all these years to figure it out. But, he has always been patient with me and has taken good care of my psychiatric needs. He asked me- "You trust me, don't you?" I of course, being who he is and how good he has been to me said-"I do trust you." And I really do. I'm just nervous I'm not going to be able to take this medicine because I am sensitive to medication. I'm also worried it won't work for controlling my episodes. I guess I stick it out and hope the nauseousness goes away with time. If it doesn't, I don't know what I will do but, I guess that's why my psychiatrist is there. I just hope it works out in all aspects.

My diverse experience has provided me with an understanding of both physical and mental diagnoses, and emotional issues. Your mind and body are woven together to make you a one-of-a-kind human being! To reach personal health & happiness, the key is a healthy connection between mind and body.
I believe therapy is truly a collaborative effort for healing. You are the expert and the therapist is a conduit. I’m committed to helping people learn how to live by their values instead of letting emotions and thoughts control their lives. My work focuses on targeting ineffective behaviors, habits, and beliefs and transforming them into effective ways of living that brings people in touch their values. In life, we will always experience a full spectrum of emotions, it's all in our reactions to those emotions in which we build a life we're excited about. In my practice, I will never ask the person sitting across from me to do something I myself have not done. Meaning, I live my life by my therapy approaches and don't just use them as an "intervention." I also use a lot of humor, direct and transparent communication. Personally, I love dogs (have two of my own), reading, painting and engaging in sports or exercise! If you’re interested in scheduling a consultation with me, please send an appointment request.
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.
