Well I'm suppose to rebuild my life now, only because there's no other choice, but I really have no desire to do so. I no there will only be more of the same for me, people in need who will want me, and then use me allalong claiming to love me, then when they've had there fill I'll be tossed out without even the slighest bit of thought. I do not fit into the scheme of life, never really have. I have this desire to just leave, to go, only I cannot, there's no place to go, no way to get there, and no onewaiting for me. Something inside has changed, I'm dead, I've died over and over in my head, I just do not have the the ambition, nor do I have the clear headed drive needed to get anywhere. My choices are toallow what has happened to go, rebuild my life, try to learn to trust and believe in people and the world again, to gain what has been taken, denied me, taken from my children. I'm getting older, now I have no savings, no health insurance, no way to even get around, this is what i have to look forward to, a life living in poverty as an old woman alone and bitter, possible out on the streets, that's is where I'd be if I weren't where I'm at now. I believe I'm at a place where I am forced to make a choice, and I don't like my options. No ones going to save me, only use me, example if I prositute myself I can get things I need, that's my choices for help, if you have sex with me I'll put a roof over your head and feed you, believe me I've been so low I've considered it, I need money desperately so i can have electricity and get a car, to get a job. I don't like my options.My daughters birthday is coming up in April but just like Christmas there will be nothing I will be able to do for her to celebrate. Time is giong by without me.I must make a decision. I am going to be selling what I have left on e-bay, then i don't no what I'll do. I think maybe I'm so broken that there's no way to mend, to repair the damage to my pieces of life, I feel so different, almost cold, sometimes one minute I'll be ok, 2 minutes later in tears, most of the time numb, I get up take care of mom, cook, clean what she'll lst me, piddle around, but there's just no meaning for me anymore, I think I finally understand the saying" I don't care".

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.

Chances are - if you are reading this - you've come to a place that is unfamiliar or uncomfortable. You either are experiencing symptoms like anxiety, depression, or grief in a way that you never have before. Or maybe, you are just not functioning at the same high level that you have come to expect from yourself. This past year has added to our normal stressors and strains, and it is no surprise that you are feeling it.

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.
Our goal is to help you find your inner voice. We believe that everyone has within themselves the ability to affect the change they want in their lives, they just need a little help. Let us help empower you, and find your inner voice of strength.
As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, a trauma survivor, and someone with a chronic pain disorder; I approach the work that I do from a place of empathy and personal understanding. I have an intense passion for understanding personal identity and the way race, culture, class, and sexuality come together to form what we believe about ourselves and what we feel we can accomplish in our lives. Anxiety and trauma can live in our bodies - together we will create a relationship that fosters dynamic and lasting growth, tapping into undiscovered reserves of resiliency that will help navigate the past and prepare for a more hopeful future.
