Note: Mentaya's goal is to save you time and money. It's completely optional, and an outside service. Divergent Path Wellness does not benefit in any way from your participation.
Therapy is offered both online across Virginia and in-person in the Charlottesville, Virginia office.
Whether to choose online or in-person will be based on what works best for you. If you're uncertain, this can be further discussed during the consultation.
Online therapy can be from the comfort of your home and many clients feel more comfortable accessing support in this way. Clients who choose to meet in person sometime feel more supported by sharing physical space and engaging in hands-on activities.
There is not a right or wrong, it's about what works best for you.

Before your consultation it may be helpful to consider what you're looking for in therapy. Write down any questions you have so that we can be sure to cover them.
If we're a good fit to work together, you'll be asked if you'd like to schedule an initial session. If you need help connecting with a therapist who offers something different, just ask. We want you to connect with therapy that's a good fit and are happy to provide a referral.
You may have no idea where to begin, but you are invited to consider what might make someone a good fit for you.
If you have specific worries about therapy; people sometimes dread the idea of rehashing or feeling like they have to dig into their painful stuff -or- have questions about confidentiality, I want us to clear those up in your initial consultation.
You can ask questions at any point in time, but the initial consultation is a good place to start with building some clarity and getting to know one another. Use the button below to schedule a free consultation.
