More about me

Hello, I am glad you are here! You are either taking the first step on your journey to wellness or reaching out to continue that journey. I am the founder of "Wellness Place, LLC." After 25+ years of professional experience and study in the areas of social work, mental health and healthcare and many years of self-study in nutrition and philosophy, I have come to realize that well-being depends on more than a healthy body. On my journey through life, I have learned that mental, physical, social and spiritual components make up who we are and how we define ourselves. It is my goal & the goal of "Wellness Place" to help you on your journey to wellbeing.

I have practiced in the field of Social Work since 1993 and hold a BA in Social Work, Minor in Gerontology from Christopher Newport University, an Master of Social Work from Virginia Commonwealth University and Virginia Licensure. My areas of practice include healthcare social work, mental health, substance abuse, education, and non-profit, adjunct college professor, and I have published, and written curriculum for educational programs and groups. My Areas of concentration include healthcare, aging, death & dying, grief, oncology, chronic & acute medical conditions. My treatment modalities include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Biopsychosocial Spritual, Problem Solving, and Systems Theory, but I use an ecclectic, individualized approach based on where you are in life and what direction you wish to take. I like to use very practical ways to address obstacles that are keeping you from the peace you seek. This often includes learning new relaxation techniques, use of resources like worksheets and websites, and proactive approaches to stress and problem prevention.

I consider myself a generalist therapist (kind of like a what a family doctor is in medicine) have successfully assisted people with the following issues:

* Depression

* Anxiety

* Bipolar I and II

* Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

* Family and Relationship issues

* Parenting

* Caregiver Stress

* Acute and Chronic Health Conditions, including cancer

* Loss of a loved one, people or pets

* Work related stress

* Aging and age related issues

* Anger/Violence Prevention

* Substance Use and Abuse

I have worked with people from various cultural, ethnic, and religious backgrounds and sexual orientations, but do not specialize in LBGTQIA issues. Thank you for allowing me the opportunity to assist you!

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Ranging from $35 to $80 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Overall

Mary is the first of 3 counselors I have met with on BetterHelp who I feel really, really cares about me, and has great advice. Mary is just WONDERFUL. She has helped me sort out all my major issues with no judgements, and she genuinely cares how I am doing. All through my life, I have valued therapy, and I go when I know I don’t have the tools to deal with what is going on in my life. I honestly think Mary is the best of all the counselors I have had in the past 24 yrs. She is genuine, caring, courteous, non-judgmental, has given me a lot of helpful tips / tools to use and remember that are life-changing, she has a great sense of humor, and a genuinely great mind, heart, and spirit. She is a great therapist, but also feels a little like the wise sister I always wanted, but didn’t have. I am very thankful God assigned her to me when I was about to give up.

Mary has been very helpful in helping me toward my goal of a happier, less anxious life. She's helped me to understand the impact and lingering effects of past difficulties on my mind and body and shared many great ideas for healing that damage. It's been less than three months but I feel like I am making good progress. She is very knowledgeable and has the wisdom that comes with some experience. Highly recommend!

Mary helps me a lot with day to day stresses that could become anxiety attacks or depression. She also suggests ways to deal when she cant be reached (which isn't often) she is quick to respond, has good availability for scheduling appointments and you can tell she genuinely cares.

Mary Sudduth has helped me in just the short time I've been chatting with her. She's got me taking on new behaviors to replace old, bad behaviors. She is kind and caring, and always a pleasure to chat to.

B.R.·Jan 16, 2020

Overall

Mary has been supportive and understanding. I didn’t feel that she judged me, just gave me options for dealing with my issues. I think I may have been somewhat contradictory with some of the things I may have told her, but she has responded according to what I have said, not how I’ve said it. She has helped me enormously with encouragement and advices without giving opinions.

She is in tune with what I am saying and giving me space to adjust to information.
