Hi there! Welcome to Revive Counseling LLC, where I believe in the power of personal growth and positive change. My name is Victoria Byler, and I’m a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor in Ohio. With my experience and knowledge, I specialize in supporting men on their journey to emotional well-being. 

Guys, let’s talk about opening up. We all know the pressure to be strong and silent, but that can make it tough to connect with the people who matter most.

I’m here to help you break free from those limitations and build stronger relationships. We can explore ways to express yourself authentically, without letting anger take the wheel.

There are some great tools out there that can be especially helpful for guys who find it tough to just talk things out. Expressive Arts, for example, lets you tap into different ways of expressing yourself. EMDR therapy can help you work through past experiences that might be holding you back.

By opening up and exploring your emotions, you’ll unlock a whole new level of connection and self-discovery. It’s all about building a toolbox for healthy communication, and that’s something that benefits everyone in your life.

About my specialties

Find Balance & Well-Being with My Personalized Therapies

Ever heard of EMDR? It stands for Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, and it's a type of therapy that's gaining traction, especially for young to middle-aged guys.

Here's the deal. Sometimes life throws things our way that can stick with us – past experiences, traumas, you name it. These can manifest as anxiety, depression, or just a general feeling of being stuck. EMDR can be a powerful tool for processing those experiences and moving forward.

Here's the basic idea: EMDR helps you revisit those challenging memories in a controlled setting with a trained therapist. While you focus on specific aspects of the memory, the therapist will guide you through bilateral stimulation, which can involve eye movements, tapping, or other back-and-forth motions.

Feeling anxious but stuck for words? Expressive arts can be your secret weapon. It's not about artistic skill, but about using creativity – music, drawing, or even just markers and paper – to express yourself in a powerful, non-verbal way. There is no right or wrong way to express yourself!

You might be curious about something called somatic therapy. It's a type of therapy that focuses on the connection between your body and your mind. As a guy, you might be used to dealing with stress by talking things out, but somatic therapy offers a different approach.

Here's the basic idea: Somatic therapy helps you reconnect with your body's signals and understand how they might be linked to your emotional state.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is online therapy as effective as in-person therapy?

Online therapy has emerged as a powerful alternative to traditional in-person sessions, and research suggests it can be just as effective for many individuals. Studies show positive outcomes for online therapy in treating a wide range of mental health concerns. These concerns include depression, anxiety, and even more serious conditions like PTSD. The key advantage lies in its accessibility: it eliminates geographical barriers and offers flexibility regarding scheduling and privacy.

Do you accept insurance?

In the best interest of my clients' treatment process, I do not currently accept insurance. However, some clients may be able to obtain reimbursement for part of their treatment costs. I am happy to give you more information about this so you can decide what's best for you. Please contact me for more information.

How can therapy help overcome traumas and emotional problems?

Traumas and emotional problems can cast a long shadow, impacting your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Therapy offers a compassionate hand to break through these shadows. Imagine a safe, confidential space where you can discuss your struggles openly and honestly, free from judgment. This is the foundation therapy provides, allowing you to explore difficult emotions and memories related to trauma in a healthy way.

In addition, beyond simply talking, therapy empowers you with concrete tools and strategies. Your therapist can help you understand how past experiences shape your present, offering techniques like EMDR to process trauma and move forward. Also, you'll learn healthy coping mechanisms for managing difficult emotions like anxiety, depression, and anger. This equips you to tackle challenges head-on, fostering resilience and a sense of control over your life.

Remember, therapy is a journey, not a destination. With ongoing support and guidance, you can heal, build stronger relationships, and ultimately, overcome the obstacles that stand in your way. So, if you're struggling, know that help is available and you don't have to face these challenges alone.

What is the Ideal therapy session length and frequency?

Unfortunately, there's no "ideal" therapy length or frequency that fits everyone. It depends on various factors like the specific issue, severity, individual progress, and personal goals. Typically, therapy starts weekly and adjusts based on needs. Short-term therapy (10-20 sessions) might address specific issues. Complex challenges or deep-seated issues may require longer-term therapy (months or even years).

What types of therapy to do do?

Person-Centered, EMDR, Expressive Arts, Grief therapies, and more. I meet you where you are, and help you achieve what you want out of your personal goals. I think of these modalities like ingredients, and each individual receives their personal entree.

Why Out of Network?

I am an out of network provider (OONP). Doing this allows me to provide quality care and specialties for you. My rates are carefully chosen to maintain certifications, continue education for up to date services of care, reduce burn-out, maintain overhead costs, and access fair living wages.

How long does a therapy session last?

Typically, each session is a 55-minute duration.

How long will I be in therapy?

Therapy is an investment. Most importantly, an investment in yourself. Variables that impact duration of services is based on severity of symptoms, goals, and motivation levels.

Why the name "Revive"?

Revive was created with healing in mind. When we experience trauma we can feel disconnected from ourselves and our world. My hope is to provide guidance, tools, and support in order for you to feel safe and restored. My logo(mushrooms) and name, Revive, symbolize resilience; the ability to grow and withstand, to come back from defeat.
