Price William Family Counseling

About Woodbridge Therapy Group

Established over a decade ago, we originally opened as Prince William Family Counseling to provide our community with trustworthy therapy services in a safe, welcoming environment. In 2015, the agency was purchased and took on new ownership, and we became Woodbridge Therapy Group. With the change in ownership, we have expanded our number of providers, added more services, and renewed our investment in the community.

Mental Health Counseling Sessions for a Peaceful State of Mind

Counseling and therapy are both great ways to work through problems that you may not be aware of, help you gain insight into ways to deal with these issues, and dedicate time to release any stress you may be keeping inside yourself. Our providers use a variety of therapy approaches and will determine which should be used based on your individual set of needs.

From a practice perspective, we also approach care from a holistic, person-in-environment lens, appreciating all dimensions of the person, including their dynamic in mind, body, and spirit. Whether you’re dealing with the loss of a family member, stress, or depression, our providers will work one-on-one with you in a safe setting and provide you with a friendly ear that listens and never judges.
