“If your relationship is in trouble, you’ve come to the right place. I’ve researched how marriages fail, I understand what’s going on, and I have answers that will help you through your worry and confusion. ” — Dr. Becky Whetstone

Welcome to, Dr. Becky Whetstone’s cyber office that is dedicated to providing information about maintaining and maximizing your mental health, as well as how to live a joyful and abundant life.

Speaking of living a joyful and abundant life, have you achieved all that you are hoping for? Do you even know what YOU are looking for? Are you living the life you want to be living? Do you know who you are and what brings you joy? Are your relationships all you want them to be? If the answer is yes, congratulations. If it’s no, then maybe we can help.

Becky sees individuals 16-years-old and above, as well as couples, and families. She also organizes groups, workshops, and seminars. In addition to talk therapy, Becky offers alternative forms of healing therapy such as hypnotherapy & relaxation therapy.

So how does a person know if he or she needs professional counseling? To find out, Becky suggests asking yourself the following questions:

  • Do I know who the real me is?
  • Do I live life using a facade?
  • Am I afraid for people to know the real me?
  • Do I lead a joyful life?
  • Am I finding it difficult to pursue goals or to reach my potential?
  • Am I stressed, depressed, or unable to cope?
  • Do I have turmoil-filled relationships?
  • Do I feel fear, shame, doubt, guilt, anger over past issues?
  • Do I feel my life is not moving forward?
  • Do I make decisions in my life based on fear, shame, doubt, guilt and anger?
  • Have I lost the energy to do much of anything?
  • Do I involve myself in relationships that weigh me down instead of lift me up?
  • Do I feel I am not good/smart enough?
  • Am I unhappy in my relationships?
  • Am I unwilling to emotionally connect in relationships?
  • Am I afraid to be alone?
  • Do I stay in unhappy relationships because of my fear of being alone?
  • Do I do things to please others instead of myself?
  • Do I mold myself to be who others think I should be, instead of just showing the world the real me?
  • Do I have lots of ideas but little or no motivation or follow through?

If you are experiencing any of these issues, chances are you would benefit from psychotherapy, relaxation therapy or a combination of the two. Becky works WITH her clients to decide what will work best for them.

It is exciting for a psychotherapist to be flexible in the therapeutic process,” says Whetstone. “I personally don’t believe in the one-size-fits-all method of doing counseling. Some counselors work from one theory … I take ideas from a wide variety of theories and do whatever it takes to promote understanding and healing.”

Think about this – the body is like a garbage receptacle that collects negative energy and emotions – when was the last time you cleaned out the mess? Leaving unprocessed emotions inside is what, in many cases, causes depression, anxiety, and discontentment. It affects your relationships and your health.

Our bodies are sensitive, and if we hold emotional “stuff” inside long enough, we will surely begin to notice it in the form of migraines, body aches, stomach upsets, lack of energy, or other health problems. Do you have health issues that a doctor has been unable to find a cause for? If so, it is likely that your interior issues have taken hold, so why wait another day to get healthy?

Becky recommends processing issues whether you have a little tweaking to do, worry about troubling problems or behavioral patterns, or whether you’re emotionally distraught.

“I specialize in working with those who are suffering from severe emotional devastation,” she says. “I want to get you on the fastest road to healing in a compassionate and caring atmosphere.”
