Brad Croyle, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor
Fairfax VA
I envision therapy as a journey and I am like your guide. I believe that everyone is on a path, and I assist with making sure that you are on the best path that you want to be travelling on in life. We have all experienced negative life events and past trauma. We will work together to identify this and work through your past. I work from a warm, supportive and caring perspective and meet each individual where they are at on their journey. I have noted that many patients have built up various walls, facades, masks or mental blocks in response to negative life events or traumas that have prevented them from living their best lives or experiencing life how they want to. The use of Psychedelics can break down such barriers and allow patients to see their past in a new light or different perspective. Psychedelic Integration Therapy can allow patients to make positive changes and gain new insights or understanding based on these journeys. This is very much like processing the various threads that can be woven into the tapestry that is symbolic and representative of our lives. Change is possible through Psychedelic Integration Therapy, and integration of one’s Psychedelic experience is the focus allowing one to develop their genuine and authentic self and break free from the past.
I am licensed in both Pennsylvania and Virginia and I have been practicing since 1998. I have always been drawn to the Holistic area of therapy and the need for balance in life, as well as being able to integrate our experiences into our lives. Therefore, I have always embraced a focus on health for optimal well being. The most common thing that I've seen in my practice is that our past and current experiences can make us feel stuck, overwhelmed, and defeated. This can lead to a variety of problems to include depression, anxiety, stress, relationship problems, addictions, trauma/abuse and PTSD. My goal as your therapist is to create a collaborative and safe environment where we work together to meet your goals. You don't have to figure everything out on your own. I love to see my patients heal and recover and my goal is to make you as comfortable as possible in therapy. I work from a Trauma informed and Holistic perspective to meet your needs. I try to achieve balance and restore emotional freedom, joy, peace, and happiness in my patients' lives. We work together to define who you are today and where you want to go tomorrow, moving beyond your past. I will be like your guide, making sure that you get where you want to go. I believe that we are all important and can overcome our problems. We can find happiness, joy, and achieve emotional freedom. We can redefine who we are today despite our past. I am an avid gardener and cultivate organic vegetables. I grow herbs for cooking and also naturopathic healing for salves and home made soaps. I enjoy hiking, travelling, photography and the great outdoors. I love spending time with my family and the joy of living simply. I also love coffee! I feel blessed to assist others to do the same with the work that I do. If you have any questions about the work that I do or about your specific problems or needs, please contact me. I would be happy to connect.
