About Woodbridge Therapy Group
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.
