W. Wesley Walker III, MA, LPC-S

“My treatment approach is primarily eclectic with focus on the whole person. I tailor my approach to the individual, as each person brings unique needs to the encounter. We work together to find the right blend of relationship and treatment focus. My perspective has always been that the best work evolves out of a trusting relationship that is mutual and confidential. I approach people honestly and directly, as it is my commitment that trust is necessary and central to a healthy psychotherapeutic experience. I work tirelessly to build, maintain, and model the utmost in fidelity within the therapeutic environment.”
