More about me

Licensing: PhD Years in Practice: 40 State: Virginia

Pastoral Counselor with more than 30 years of experience. I have worked with survivors of disasters or crises, people who have experienced a humanitarian crisis, or who are survivors of migration-related trauma. I have also worked with disaster workers experiencing compassion fatigue and/or veterans experiencing adjustment issues. I consider it important to walk with people who seek accompaniment and a compassionate ear after a traumatic experience, as well as those people who because of their age feel overwhelmed and without desire to move forward, as well as those who have suffered loss and hope.

Consejera Pastoral con más de 30 años de experiencia. He trabajado con sobrevivientes de desastres o crisis, personas que han experimentado una crisis humanitaria o que son sobrevivientes de traumas relacionados con la migración. También he trabajado con trabajadores de desastres que experimentan fatiga por compasión y / o veteranos que experimentan problemas de adaptación. Considero importante caminar con personas que buscan acompañamiento y un oído compasivo después de una experiencia traumática, así como con aquellas personas que por su edad se sienten abrumadas y sin ganas de seguir adelante, así como con aquellas que han sufrido pérdida y esperanza.

About online counseling

Online counseling allows you to receive care from an online mental health practitioner via phone, video chat, or instant messaging. It is convenient for those who may have trouble getting to or would prefer not to have in-person therapy appointments. Starting at $65 per week, online counseling is generally more affordable than in-person counseling. A study by researchers at University of California, Berkeley found that online counseling can be just as effective as face-to-face therapy while being more convenient, affordable, and accessible.

Joe is a professional through and through. He listens intently and never interrupts while I am speaking. He offers his expertise clinically and personally. Joe is someone who is easily approachable and is very personable. I would recommend Dr. Prewitt-Diaz to anyone who is in need of therapist.

Dr. Prewitt-Diaz has been exceptional. We seemed to click from our first chat. He has helped me understand my anxiety, and gave me helpful practices to make it through difficult situations. His experience and background is abundant and I’m grateful I found him on Betterhelp. My anxiety has gone down significantly since we first started working together, and I’ve been feeling like my old-self again. He is very understanding and a great listener and puts things in perspective to help you better understand what’s going on with you to help you through it.

Dr. Prewitt-Diaz aka Joe is a very kind and thoughtful therapist. I found his insight into my challenges to be very helpful. He is very patient and listens well. His experiences helping others in many countries around the world gave him many examples he could use to help me understand my thought process.

He is the best therapist I have ever met

Sep 06, 2023


Dr. Prewitt-Díaz has a variety of experience as a therapist but also leading large projects. His blend of experience makes him a well rounded therapist. His travel experience provides him an understanding of different cultures which I think is critical when working with individuals from different backgrounds. He is very easy to communicate with and is able to provide wisdom and knowledge from the psychologist perspective, which is appreciated.

Aug 16, 2023


Dr. Prewitt-Diaz is an excellent therapist! Since our first session, he identified things that I had either tucked away to ignore, or failed to acknowledge. I like his straightforward, and direct, yet caring approach. It is just what I need.

Aug 09, 2023


Great listening skills! Very direct approach but very understanding when it is delivered.

Good listener. Has lots of experience. Cares.

May 15, 2023


Joe is amazing. Worked with me over 18 months, I met him during an extremely low point of my life, and he helped challenge me to turn it around. He’s been very insightful, cuts out irrelevant self-talk and has helped me narrow down and stay focused on key goals so I can be a good father, bf, community member, and person.

Mar 01, 2023


Joe was a huge help for me when I reached the lowest point in my life. He is amazing.

Feb 23, 2023


Dr. Prewitt Diaz thoroughly listened to my parenting concerns with my daughter and provided me with such helpful and insightful tools to help me better parent my child. She has made a huge improvement in her behavior since I have been implementing these parenting tools. I couldn’t recommend Dr Prewitt-Diaz highly enough!

Feb 14, 2023


Joe is a thoughtful and conscientious counselor. He approaches his clients with a goal of helping them through whatever it is that is most troubling them. Joe has helped me realize a sense of place and increased my courage to face an uncertain future. He’s a helper, a good man, and I’d recommend him to anyone looking for someone to talk to.

Feb 05, 2023


Working with him has helped me a great deal. I am grateful for his counsel, and look forward to growing with his help.

Feb 04, 2023


Muchas Gracias Dr.Diaz!!!!

Jan 03, 2023


I have been with Dr. Prewitt-Diaz for a year now, and when everything else falls away, I know he has by best interests at heart. He has been with me for a very turbulent time in my life and I am grateful that he has been a rock for me throughout. I needed you more than I could express here. Thank you, Dr. Prewitt-Diaz.

Dec 15, 2022


Very friendly, encouraging, and humanizes conversation with love, respect and compassion.

Nov 28, 2022


He's the Best. For me anyway

Nov 27, 2022


Absolutely Great Therapist, A good listener. Very understanding and compassionate....

Nov 15, 2022


He doesn’t act like a pretentious person, he is as real and honest with me as possible. 10/10 guy. Highly recommend

Nov 08, 2022


Patient, practical, and experienced listener that’ll work with you to understand your current situation, and form a gentle, practical solution that’ll help heal you.

Oct 16, 2022


He great at understanding the underlying cause of my problems. We share some similarities but also some differences that's been leading to some great insight. I'm bad at fully conveying how I feel or what I'm thinking unless it on paper, so we haven't gotten to some of the traumatic things that I want to discuss or some of the more personal things I want to touch on, but he understands that the root of my problems stems from my current financial situation that's preventing me from enjoying or appreciating life, which is why - atleast I hope - our sessions have been focused on that problem. I hope that, as time goes on and things get better, we can touch on other problems. I appreciate his guidance and help.

Sep 22, 2022


Dr. Prewitt-Diaz has provided exactly the mix of faith suported and general counseling that I needed for my grief. He is a pastor, but only after his role as a counselor.

Aug 23, 2022


He has been great, listens well, responds clearly, has really helped me begin to move forward.

Aug 22, 2022


Great! Tells it like it is.

R.Y.·Aug 18, 2022


Joe is the definition of an attentive therapist. He listens before asking the questions allowing you to lay your issues on the table with no judgement. Moreover, his wise ability to tie events back to my childhood not only had me thinking, but gave me the revelations to advance my future. I couldn’t have imagined more of an understanding therapist.

C.H.·Aug 11, 2022


Highly recommend Joe. 1. Great listener - takes the time to really listen to your story and provides amazing feedback with a clear guideline of what you should do 2. Very wise - you can tell he has a long list of experiences under his belt. Everything he says is filled with wisdom and spirituality 3. Encouraging - in times of crisis, he provides warmth to the soul and helps you tap back into reality when you're not in sober-mind. 10/10 recommend Dr. Prewitt-Diaz.

P.E.·Aug 09, 2022


In the time I had with Dr. Diaz, he has truly made me feel seen. I was in such a bad place I thought I could never recover from but Dr. Diaz made me see that with some faith, time, and effort I could truly turn my life around. He takes the time to get to know you, and understand why you're having such a difficult time while being very patient. He truly cares about seeing you succeed in life and has helped me immensely. I also think it's very special that he is a bilingual (Spanish/English) therapist and I would recommend him to ANYONE looking to seek therapy on Beterhelp! --------------------------------------- En el tiempo que tuve con Dr. Díaz, el realmente me hizo sentir visto. Estaba en un lugar tan malo del que pensé que nunca podría recuperarme, pero Dr. Díaz me hizo ver que con un poco de fe, tiempo y esfuerzo realmente podría cambiar mi vida. Se toma el tiempo para conocerte y entender por qué estás pasando por un momento tan difícil mientras ser muy paciente contigo. Él realmente se preocupa por verte triunfar en la vida y me ha ayudado inmensamente. ¡También me encanta que Dr. Díaz es un terapeuta bilingüe (español/inglés) y lo recomendaría a CUALQUIERA persona que esta buscando terapia en Beterhelp!

C.A.·Aug 09, 2022

E.L.·Aug 08, 2022


Dr. Prewitt-Diaz is excellent! He’s an excellent listener and was able to help me connect current issues with past experiences and learned behaviors. This, I believe, is critical to understanding how to change how I can respond differently and effectively to situations.

I've only recently begun meeting with Dr. Prewitt-Diaz, however I was instantly impressed with his observations and suggestions. I was able to immediately implement strategies that have already proven to have successful results. I've found him to be attentive, relaxed, inciteful and well-read. I'm confidently optimistic about working with him going forward.

G.E.·Aug 04, 2022


Dr. Prewitt-Diaz (Joe), Although we had a short time together, his words, encouragement, advice, understanding and style will be with me forever. I would strongly agree to seek out Joe if you're having problems in your marriage or an issue with substance abuse, and with overall self-esteem. I will keep him in mind if I come back to betterhelp or when I suggest this site to others.

M.A.·Aug 04, 2022

K.E.·Mar 23, 2022


I really enjoyed my therapy session with Dr. Prewitt-Diaz

Y.O.·Mar 22, 2022


Dr.Diaz is an amazing therapist. I have been going to therapy for almost two years now and most other therapist I have had in the past would just ask questions and listen with no clear direction where the session is going. Dr Diaz on the other hand, has a clear approach, he took the time to learn about my needs and what I am hoping to achieve from my therapy and it just took off. He is an amazing and compassionate listener. He also gives great actionable advice/tools to use on a daily basis. I will continue using the tools I learned in therapy with him even after I stop. He truly elevated my spirits and gave me hope in my next season of life.

M.E.·Mar 17, 2022


Dr. Diaz is good listener and has a variety of skills and techniques to offer to help with coping depression and anxiety. He also helped me set up goals that were important and that we would re-visit in the next session. I highly recommend Dr. Prewitt-Diaz

G.R.·Mar 13, 2022


Dr. Diaz is a wonderful person full of wisdom and insight, he has a biblical expertise that he translates into his sessions.

Very good !

M.A.·Jan 13, 2022


Dr. Prewitt-Diaz proved to be extremely helpful immediately upon beginning my sessions with him. I felt like he understood my needs and focus very quickly, and has been great at managing our time together to make sure I get the most out of it. He has encouraged me greatly, and helps me to see the value in myself—an area that I have struggled with. He also recognizes that I have goals and is consistent in considering these goals and helping me move towards them each week. I would recommend Dr. Prewitt-Diaz to anyone that is seeking personal growth in these difficult times. Life is hard and can be overwhelming for each of us—no matter how different our experiences may be. I would encourage anyone to take action in seeking help, regardless of where they’re at in their life’s journey. There is always room to grow, and it’s never too late to master one’s circumstances through mindfulness and self-care.
