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.

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.

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.
You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think".......By A.A. Milne. It is my deepest desire to actively assist those in need of support through life's challenges. I am eager to work with those experiencing a crisis, conflict, or seemingly unmanageable change in the course of life's events. I discretely assist individuals in finding solutions to some of the more challenging issues in life. I enjoy working with children, adolescents, and adults in addition to people experiencing life with physical and/or cognitive disabilities. I have many years of experience as an educator, and as a clinical therapist working with people with special needs. My work is very interactive and homework is often assigned to practice new skills. The purpose of our work together is to build a relationship that fosters an environment that is personalized and centered on your goals and objectives. In meeting your goals and objectives you will not only be able to successfully navigate through these challenges, but be better prepared to face future challenges life may bring.
Trauma, anxiety, and life's stressors and transitions can leave you feeling like you are drowning. Counseling is a life raft in a sea of emotion.
