Counseling - because talking works.
 

Because talking works.

Talk to me sooner. | Feel better faster. 

 

So, who is supporting you?

You are the front line. You are exposed to vicarious trauma and often are victim to first-hand trauma experiences. You put in more hours than your partner or friends and you never turn down someone who asks for help. You always show up. And then when you leave the office, your work leaves with you too.

People in helping professions often experience burn out or compassion fatigue without knowing it.

  • You find yourself more irritable at home (or sometimes in the office.)
  • When you get home, you sit in front of the TV, binge watching shows or are on Facebook or Instagram, scrolling for hours on end.
  • You feel disconnected from your clients at work or your family at home.
  • You're having trouble feeling rested after a night's sleep or lack the motivation to exercise before or after work the way you used to.
  • You think about calling out of work, but the guilt of letting people you support down gets you out of bed in the morning.

As a helping professional myself, I can tell you, you are not alone and it is possible to combat, process, and learn ways to regain your energy in life and reawaken your passion for helping others in your current role.

A lot of us are tempted to ignore our self-care, not spend money on ourselves, and just power through it all. As the weeks go by, things only get worse. Your relationships suffer. Your passion wanes. You feel more exhausted and cranky and defeated each day.

We all only get so many days. Letting them creep by in low-level suffering is not what we were meant for. The faster you talk to someone who truly, deeply gets it, the faster you get to feel like yourself again.

Hi, I'm Candace Wall, LMHC

My experience on the ground, working in very stressful, high-risk environments, and coming out alive on the other side, sets me apart as a clinician and trainer in the field.

Want to quit your job? Chances are there's more to it. Take your lunch break and let's meet. 

Seeking to reconnect with your partner, kids, friends, dog? Let's sort through the crap weighing you down and recycle it so you can get back to what's important in your life.

You might already know all the answers. It's my job to teach you how to follow your own advice.

Individual Therapy

I work with adults one-to-one on any issues or goals you have for yourself.  What's important to you and what's getting of the way of you doing it? Together, we will explore these roadblocks and find ways to overcome them.

I help people with:

  • Feeling lost, defeated
  • Anger
  • Relationships
  • Workplace stress
  • Burnout
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Stress

I currently accept some commercial insurance plans and private pay.  Check FAQs for more details. The initial session (intake) is $150. Subsequent sessions are $60 (30 minutes) and $90 (45 minutes.) 

Workshops

Single or multiple session work groups and quarterly trainings, focusing on a specific topic. Some previous workshops have focused on:

  • Self care
  • Risk and safety in community mental health
  • Self-esteem
  • Assertiveness
  • Stress reduction
  • Healthy relationships
  • Mindfulness

The cost of workshops will vary depending on length and duration. Trainings may include continuing education credits for social workers and licensed mental health counselors. Cost will be dependent on length of trainings.

My consultant rates vary based on need and contract. Workplace training begins at $150/hour.
