Marit Weikel, Licensed Professional Counselor
My name is Marit D. Weikel. I
am a licensed professional counselor (LPC) in the state of North
Carolina. I am a Certified Health and Wellness Coach from Wellcoaches,
Inc. Prior to starting Weikel Health and Wellness I worked at the world
renowned Duke Diet and Fitness Center as a behavioral health clinician
and lifestyle coach. There I gained expertise in weight management and
health promotion. Since 2006 I have coached and counseled several
hundred diverse individuals in support of weight management, lifestyle
change and health promoting behaviors. In 2014 I joined the supportive
team at Mission Weight Management where, as a behavioral health
clinician, I helped patients understand and integrate the
psychological, emotional and behavioral changes that accompany
bariatric surgery. In 2019 I left Mission to build my private practice
where I continue to support both surgical and non-surgical
individuals wanting to reclaim their life.
They come for assistance and guidance. They stay because of the relationship.
Clients are drawn to work with me because of my background, intelligence and experience. They stay with me because of my warmth, acceptance, encouragement, humor and support. When you have a hard time accepting where you are at any given point in the change process, you can find strength in my consistent positive regard, alternative perspective and modeling of acceptance. I am here for you.
How Counseling Works
I provide counseling services either in person at my Asheville office or by secure video. Currently, I am in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare and Aetna. I recommend you check with your insurance company to verify coverage.
How Coaching Works
While I am based out of North Carolina, my client base extends both
nationally and internationally. I offer services via phone and secure
video option. These are popular alternatives if you already feel
pressed for time. No traffic. No time off from work. Just
you and me addressing what is important to you at a time that is
convenient for your schedule.
