Being kind costs us nothing, but can mean the world to someone else. Small acts of kindness can brighten someone's day and make a huge difference in their life. Let's spread positivity and support each other today and every day!
Life is a journey, and it's important to remember that the past is just that: the past. It can be a great lesson, but it shouldn't hold you back from moving forward. Focus on the goal ahead of you, and don't let anything distract you from reaching your true potential!
Your present circumstances don’t determine where you go; they merely determine where you start.
Mental health is something that we all need to take more seriously. Here are a few tips for cultivating self-love and mental health:
-Take time to meditate, breathe, and relax.
-Make sure you're eating well and exercising regularly.
-Practice gratitude journaling—write down at least three things you're grateful for on a daily basis. You'll be amazed at how much better you feel!
-If you're struggling with your mental health, seek help from a professional therapist or counselor who can help you through the difficult times.

Personal Bio/Mission Statement:
I believe the therapy process involves forming a relationship with someone who you can share your innermost thoughts and struggles with. Everyone should be able to share their problems with a trusted individual in an environment that is safe and free from judgement. I provide my clients with an environment free from judgement where you can let your guard down and just be you. Admitting that you need help doesn’t mean something is wrong with you, it means you are ready to grow and better understand yourself.
I have 5+ years assisting individuals in working through issues such as substance abuse, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, anger management as well as other life issues. My approach is client centered. I believe that no one knows you better than you do. I'm here to offer encouragement, guidance, perspective and support as you discover the answers within you.
You are exhibiting the will and the strength to make the necessary changes that can ultimately improve every aspect of your life and I would love to collaborate with you to facilitate that change. I am currently accepting new clients,weekend appointments are available. I can be reached daily at 251-347-5410 by phone or text. I look forward to helping you!
Bay Area Professional Counseling is PROUD and extremely excited to announce and introduce Virgina Inge Gordon to our practice!
Virginia is a Licensed Professional Counselor who has worked with clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, anxiety, relationship issues, parenting problems, self-esteem concerns, grief, and more. She has also helped many people who have experienced physical trauma, emotional abuse, and sexual abuse.
Virginia earned her Bachelors from the University of Alabama with major in Psychology and minor in Anthropology. Virginia began her quest in best serving the adolescent population during college where she served as a Teaching Assistant for Psychology 450 and led a youth empowerment initiative at Holt Academy in an underserved community in Tuscaloosa. Discovering her love for supporting young people, she partnered with a psychology professor and created an IRB approved research study entitled “Self-Esteem and Family Moral-Religious Emphasis of Female Adolescent Honduran Orphans,” where she spent over 6 weeks at Our Little Roses orphanage in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, and later published her findings as the Primary Investigator at the Southeastern Psychological Association Annual Conference in 2010.
Virginia continued after college volunteering at a Southeast Asian non-profit in Bayou La Batre, Alabama where she became the founder of a pilot program that served middle and upper school students. She helped train adult Vietnamese American facilitators how to partner with youth to identify concerns in their community and then give them the tools they need to make a difference as young leaders. Virginia soon created a paid position for herself by writing a grant with the support of administrators nationally at Boat People SOS. She facilitated teenage leadership groups who became the change they wanted to see, all the while improving their mental health by focusing on a purpose beyond themselves i.e., beautifying parks with approval of the City Council, launching a Bullying Prevention campaign with the help of Mobile District Attorney Ashley Rich, and putting on a community wide carnival to boost morale of a community hit hard by natural disasters (including Katrina).
Virginia went on to gain her master’s in Clinical Mental Health Counseling at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. Since then, Virginia has worked within a variety of settings including adolescent residential, outpatient, and school- based. She has had over 3 years of experience working within the private practice sector serving children, adolescents, adults, and couples. Virginia has been tremendously encouraged while seeing meaningful progress clients can make while receiving virtual video-based therapy since the onset of COVID-19.
As a licensed counselor for over 9 years, Virginia utilizes an extensive approach to therapy that primarily involves motivational interviewing, positive psychology, and cognitive behavioral therapy. She looks to guide her clients in achieving what they view as meaningful growth with a behavioral health focus. She continually seeks to build and sustain a trusting therapeutic alliance with her clients where their relationship is of greatest value. Virginia understands that particularly for young people, it is precious time worth spending to seek ongoing communication with caregivers.
A forever advocate and supporter of people in need, Virginia helped create and host a “Wellness Wednesday” series while serving for over two years as the Clinical Behavioral Health Administrator at the Mobile County Health Department which is still running and open to the public through MCHD’s social media platforms. Most recently, she launched a podcast on Spotify and Apple called TeenPOD where she interviews and engages in transparent conversation with people who have been named mentors, sharing ways in which they overcame adversity during their teen years.
Virginia is a member of the American Counseling Association and the Alabama Counseling Association. She is a former board member of the Mobile Area Council, Boy Scouts of America.
