Counseling at COVA Wellness!


The world can be a wonderful place but at times it can be confusing, unpredictable and seemingly cruel. Sometimes it may feel that the weight of the world is unbearable. Under this weight we sometimes may feel sad and anxious, have a fear of failing or letting someone down, feel like we just aren’t good enough, have difficulties in our personal relationships and at work or have a fear of being rejected by someone we care about .

Everyone can benefit from having someone to talk to during difficult times like these. I’m very skilled at making my patients feel comfortable and connected so they can talk about their concerns at their own pace and without judgement. Together we work to find solutions to the issues in your life that keep you from being your true self.

Mr. Simmons works with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues and provides therapy/counseling services including:

•    Life Changes and Transitions
•    Personal Growth
•    Parent and Child
•    Relationship Difficulties
•    Grief Counseling
•    LGBTQ+ Issues
•    Work and Career issues
•    Anxiety
•    Depression
•    Stress Management
•    Conflict Resolution
•    Men's Issues

Please contact Mr. Simmons at CoVa Counseling at (757) 219-2293 to schedule your first FREE session.  Subsequent sessions are $40.
