Letting Go Counseling is the name I chose for my practice because I believe that everyone has the power to let go of the things or people that hold them back or drag them down. It hurts less in the long run to let go rather than hold on of what causes us pain.
My name is Dione De Pooter and I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist. Does that mean I can only see couples and families? Absolutely not! I have provided counseling to individuals, couples, and families for over 12 years. I was born to do this and I LOVE what I do. Everyone needs someone to talk to, whom they know will not judge them. Here I am and I’m here just for you. It’s important that you know that I practice what I preach.
I am a Qualified Supervisor for Marriage and Family Therapists and Mental Health Counselors seeking Licensure. Give me a call! You will find that I offer reasonable rates.
My experience enables me to offer effective outpatient, individualized, psychological care. I treat a number of mental health issues, such as trauma, grief, depression, anxiety, relationship, coping, anger, and more. I provide a neutral ground to individuals, families, and couples. I utilize various modalities based on your needs. No cookie cutter recipes here.
My focus is to help individuals heal, energize, and become aware of their inner strengths. I achieve this by providing a neutral safe space, listening to your concerns, and customizing your treatment plan. I’m with you every step of the way.
I promise to be there for you every step of your journey. My goal is to help you grow from your struggles, heal from your pain, and move forward to where you want to be in your life. I want to help you to let go of the chains that hold you back, and the weight that holds you down. Allow the past to become a distant blur, the present to come into focus, and the future to be within your reach.
Depression, fear, and anxiety are some of the most common and uncomfortable emotions that we can experience at some point in our lives. Through counseling and treatment, you will be able to recover motivation, perspective, and joy that you once had in your life.
Many individuals experience symptoms associated with painful and traumatic events. Anxiety, fear, and hopelessness are only a few emotions that can linger following traumatic events. I can help you overcome these symptoms and guide you through the process of grief and healing. I offer EMDR and other modalities to minimize or vanquish the symptoms associated with trauma to help you take your life back.
Relationship counseling can be beneficial to couples who are looking to strengthen or rebuild their emotional connection, in all stages of their relationship. Therapy sessions are held with couples and is a supportive place to discuss issues and solutions to better strengthen your relationship.
Having healthy relationships with family and others can also be adressed. You may find that you need to set healthy boundaries, learn how to engage or re-engage in relationships, or free yourself from codependence.
