More about me
Hello, my name is Maurice J. Ponder and I am a Licensed Professional Counselor in Virginia. I received my Masters of Arts in Professional Counseling from Liberty University. I have been in the mental health field for the past 10 years and I have a heart for individuals who struggle to cope with life’s stressors. I take an eclectic approach to therapy; I have a desire to see individuals meet one’s goals, grow, and live life to the fullest. I have worked in several different settings over the years, including detoxification units, crisis stabilization units, and psychiatric hospitals. Additionally, I have worked with various populations throughout the years ranging from children and teenagers who struggle with Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, anxiety, and depression to adults who live with bipolar disorder, schizoaffective disorder, and schizophrenia. Currently, I serve individuals in a public mental health agency where I assess and work closely with individuals who battle with a serious mental illness daily.
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.
