WPA Counseling

Your Guiding Light for Peace and Mental Wellness




Hope is the light that guides us through the darkest times.

Who is This For?

WPA Counseling offers individual, couples, and family counseling at our Western PA offices and online throughout Pennsylvania. We have a diverse group of counselors with various specialties so no matter what you are suffering with, we likely have someone who can help. If we don’t we will help you find someone who can. We see clients struggling with anxiety and depression, stress, relationship issues, trauma, grief, and most other mental health issues.

Our Approach

At WPA Counseling we rely heavily on evidence-based practices and keep up with the latest techniques in the field. We also value seeing each person as an individual and tailor our approach to each client’s needs and not just a set of principles established in a textbook. Because of this, we see it as essential that we develop a genuine relationship with our clients from the beginning of the process to the end…guiding you on your way to healing, peace, and wellness.

How will I know if it's right for me?

It’s difficult to reach out for help and everyone has some level of apprehension. We strive to make the process painless and easy. When you contact us you will be guided through the process by a member of our care team. If at any time you don’t feel like we are a good fit, just let us know and our care team will help you find somewhere that is a good fit. We are here for you, not the other way around. You are in control…no hard sales or pressure. We go at your pace and base everything on your needs.

Say Hello to Sampson

He sees with his heart, not with his eyes!

If you come to our Irwin office you are likely to see Sampson roaming the halls or greeting you in the waiting room. Sampson is our office therapy dog. He was born completely blind but has overcome that challenge to be here for you. If he can overcome his challenge he knows you can overcome yours!

Our Counseling Blueprint

Take off the Mask

The first step in the process is to “take off the mask” and be genuine and honest with yourself and your counselor.  This is done through a process of building rapport and trust in the counseling relationship. You were wounded in relationship and it is important to heal in relationship…a safe, accepting and therapeutic relationship with your counselor.

Heal the Wounds

Once rapport and trust are established and the mask is off, your counselor will help you explore what has hurt you.  Our wounds (emotional, spiritual, relational and sometimes physical) are the root cause of our suffering and need to be identified and healed.

Remove the Toxins

Once you have done some healing work on the things that hurt you, your counselor will help you identify the toxins left behind. These are the lies you believed, consciously or subconsiously at the time of the wounding that can stick with you long after the wound is healed.

Replace with Truth

Once the toxic beliefs are removed, there is room for the truth. Your counselor will help you identify the truths about yourself, others, and the world that were stolen from you when you were hurt. To often the counseling process stops with the “heal the wounds” step. At WPA Counseling, we are interested in you believing and living your truth.

Getting Started

Connect with a Care Team Member

Our care team is standing by ready to connect. We believe the healing process begins here. It’s not easy to reach out for help so our care team meets you with warmth and understanding…helping you connect at your pace and based on your needs.

Select a Counselor and Location

One of the advantages of WPA Counseling is the diverse group of counselors available to choose from. Our care team will help you pick the right counselor for your needs. If we can’t connect you with one of our counselors we will help you find a referral that will work for you.

Connect with Your Counselor

The care team will schedule an appointment for you either in person at one of our locations or online…depending on what works best for you. At your first appointment, your counselor will get to know your needs and desires for your healing journey and establish a plan to help.

Begin Your Healing Journey

After a plan is put in place, your counselor will guide you through the process of healing at your pace. We believe the counseling relationship is a partnership. You are the expert on your life and your counselor is the expert on the process. Together we can cart a journey to peace and wellness.

How Can We Help?

It may seem like an overwhelming process. It may feel like it’s better to put it off. There may be a lot of other reasons going through your head right now telling you not to get started. Don’t listen! They are lying to you! While the whole process may look hard, we help you take it one step at a time. Soon you see progress and develop motivation. Until then, let us provide the hope and motivation.
