Our Approach

A Holistic Approach to Mental Well-being

Our holistic approach to anxiety and depression counseling combines the latest in psychological research with compassionate care. Whether you’re struggling with acute symptoms or long-term challenges, our team is equipped to help. We focus on empowering you with the tools and insights needed for lasting change and resilience.

YOU ARE NOT YOUR SYMPTOMS.  You are so much more! At WPA Counseling we see you as a whole person, body, soul and spirit, with unique life experiences, beliefs, and culture. We get to know you, meet your where you are and help you accomplish the goals you establish.

Your Path to Wellness

A Journey to Healing and Empowerment

Embark on a transformative path with WPA Counseling. Our approach to treating depression and anxiety is not just about managing symptoms, but about empowering you to rediscover strength and joy in life. We combine evidence-based treatments with a deep understanding of your personal story, ensuring a journey that’s as unique and individual as you are.

It’s time to rewrite your story! Often times our story doesn’t make sense because things have happened that we can’t process or integrate into our understanding of ourselves in a healthy way. At WPA Counseling we will help you rewrite your narrative with a healthy understanding of your past, boundaries for the present and a dream for the future.

Resources and Tools

Equipping You for Sustainable Change

We believe anxiety and depression counseling involves equipping our clients with tools for lasting change. The healing process doesn’t stop when you walk out of your therapy session. Your counselor will equip you with tools and techniques that you can utilize every day to continue the healing process throughout the week.

It is our goal to equip you and help you rewrite your story so that you can sustain yourself without lifelong therapy. However, even after discharge, we are always here for you when you need us…whether that be for a quick check-in or for another round of therapy to deal with new challenges.
