Wallace Pond, Ph.D., is an LPC intern, having transitioned into counseling after a 35-year career in educational and business settings. He takes an integrated approach to therapy, using person-centered cognitive and behavioral approaches, mindfulness, and exploration of how our past and present environments affect our mental health, while supporting emotional growth and client empowerment. He follows a model based on the idea that most behaviors and conditions experienced by clients are natural under the circumstances and that by changing those circumstances and how we react to them, we can achieve the change we want in our lives. Common issues in his practice include anxiety & depression, emotion regulation, life transitions, interpersonal conflict and relationships, alcohol and drug issues, and health and wellness among others.
His primary motivation is to use his own experience, discovery, and mental health journey to help others. You can see his Psychology Today profile here.
Wallace works with individuals, couples, families, and groups, primarily with adults and adolescents.
