Dr. Paula Rainer, LLC: Counseling Office
Counseling Anxiety and Depression
Are you looking for a strength-based approach to life? Are you generally an internally peaceful and pleasant person but your unwanted mood or thoughts are more powerful? Do stress, anxiety, and depression make you someone that you do not recognize? Are you mad, sad, or quiet without a true reason that you can express? Are you isolating yourself from activities that you used to enjoy or would consider pleasurable? Are you tired of people looking at who you are from the outside and think that you have everything that you need, but they are missing your internal pain? Do the people closest to you fail to see your internal struggle? Are you tired of having no one to talk to about how you truly feel?
If you are ready to be free from the power of an anxious or depressed mood I look forward to guiding, you to success. Cognitive Behavioral Theory, Mindfulness, and Realty theories will supply you with the tools to crush the painful stagnation associated with your depression, anxiety, doubt, and insecurity.
As an Assistant Director of Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Assistant Professor of Clinical Mental Health Counseling and Virginia Tech Counselor Education and Supervision PhD I am dedicated to early identification and management of the symptoms of depression and anxiety. There is absolutely no reason to fear a diagnosis of anxiety or depression that can be successfully treated. The only problem would be to suffer alone. Let me help you understand your condition of depression or anxiety without shame but with strength and tools. My practice includes teenagers and adults.
