"And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom." - Anais Nin
Life is full of changes, challenges, and transformations. As a human, I know this. As a counselor, I understand that your life is full of the same. We learn by making mistakes and continuing to try again. Sometimes we need help in order to do this. We need help to navigate the changes and challenges. What I hope to accomplish in our work together, is for you to experience a shift in your emotional being, and an understanding that you can do hard things. I wish to help you understand that all emotions are a part of your experience and can be experienced fully, and that you can live a full, purpose-filled life.
What you can expect from me is the creation of a safe, open, and honest space where you can begin to learn, grow, and heal, free of judgment. I operate from a client-centered approach which means that I believe that you have within you, what you need to live the most meaningful and authentic life possible. I am here to help you identify the things that get in the way of this and discover the hidden courage and strength you already possess.
I have experience working with adults suffering from a variety of anxiety related disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder, trauma, substance abuse, life transitions, relationship issues, body image concerns, and eating disorders/disordered eating. I am a registered 200 hour yoga teacher and can incorporate those practices into client sessions if that is welcomed. I welcome all clients and do have experience working with the LGBT-Q community. I am also happy to include a client’s religious/spiritual practice in their treatment, if that is what they wish.
I hope to hear from you soon!
Thank you for sharing your light with me and allowing me to share my light with you. Namaste.
My rate is $120 per session, with some sliding scale spaces available in an effort to remove financial barriers to treatment. Align Wellness's sliding scale spots are prioritized for trans and BIPOC clients. I can provide documentation for insurance reimbursement. As an APC, all of my work with clients at Align Wellness is under the clinical supervision of Melanie Storrusten, LCSW.
