Release it Counseling

Release it Counseling is a counseling and life coaching private group practice in Suffolk, VA. It's tailored to helping individuals to release their pain and heal, to grow both spiritually and emotionally. Our goal is to assist people in being empowered and encouraged to confidently walk in their divine destiny. We do so by using both spiritual and mental professional tools. We're aware of how unexpected life can be, and how some things occur that we can't control. Ultimately, causing us to be stressed, depressed, anxious and so many other emotions. Thankfully there is a tool available to us that works; that is therapy. At Release it Counseling it's our goal and mission to provide whichever service best fits your needs.

We currently are only providing brief counseling and life coaching services. Presently, we have a dedicated therapist, named Whitney Smith-Johnson, who is a Licensed Clinical Social Worker. With a very small practice and dedicated therapist, you can work towards healing. Release it Counseling's motto is "Release to renew your mind for a renewed life." We can all be holding onto emotions, pain and situations that are keeping us bound. Allow Release it Counseling to help you with releasing and healing.

Therapy deals with one's emotional and mental health being. Maybe you've been feeling like you're on an emotional rollercoaster. Your mood is easily impacted or you just lack the desire to go about your day as normal. Maybe you are battling with negative thoughts that you can't seem to control; you're more anxious than normal. You could very well need some psychotherapy. You need a trained and licensed professional to help you stabilize your emotion, teach you some skills and techniques to help you better manage your mental anxiety and or depression. 

Here at Release it Counseling our therapist and life Coach Whitney Smith Johnson is gifted in motivating women in overcoming trials and tribulations, while still achieving great success. Mrs. Johnson's motto is "Christian girls Heal" because she lives by the promise of Isaiah 53:5 knowing that we aren't supposed to live feeling broken and bitter. Release the lies, shame, rumors and pain others and your own decisions have caused you! Renew your mind to thinking and speaking positively, while walking confidently in who God has purposed you to be in His image!
