Announcement icon We are continuing to see new and existing clients via Telehealth at this time! Please reach out via email for faster responses!
ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS! Therapy is a place to pause, reflect on what you are seeking in life and explore the barriers preventing you from taking that next step in your journey. Life changes or chronic situations can throw us off course, leaving us to feel out of sync, confused, & disconnected from life. Whether you are looking to reconnect, find purpose, learn new coping skills, process trauma or loss, manage anxiety, deal with shame, or make a life changing decision, therapy can be a safe place to discover the power you have within yourself to design your own solutions & find new ways to navigate challenging situations.
We are a boutique counseling center of curated specialists in the heart of WV. We offer a safe, non-judgmental space to be heard, based on honesty, trust & transparency. Our diversified team draws from various psychotherapies like EMDR, CBT, DBT, hypnosis, TF-CBT, IFS and more. We use TELE and "Walk-n-Talks" to meet your needs during this uncertain time.
Hi! I am Dr. Jude Black, president of APLEC. Our team brings a down to earth & nonjudgmental style to therapy. We believe that you are not broken, you are just human. While therapy can be heavy, we strive to be your space holder, joy finder, calm generator, & hope facilitator. We are here to support & guide you on your journey of healing and self-discovery.
