REAL HELP FOR STUCK PROBLEMS
Counseling for Women and Girls
My clients usually come to me because they are struggling with eating disorders, trauma, anxiety, depression, or a chronic illness, but moreover they come in because they are deep feelers--always feeling either not enough, or too much-- who want to make a difference, and don't know how to move forward in the next chapter of their life.
If that's you, I can't wait to see what we can accomplish together.
A BIT ABOUT ME
I'm proud to be the owner of Embodied Counseling PLLC. embodiedcounselingtexas.com --a practice devoted wrap around eating disorder and trauma treatment.
If there is a stuck problem or this is your last ditch, I want to take a crack at it.
I bring over five years of experience in working in social services with children who are refugees, asylees, and trafficking survivors in foster care, followed by my experience as a private practice therapist working with adults and teens.
There are losses and hurts in life that you can’t just get off your chest, talk to a friend, walk off and get over. These kids knew that. I knew that.
I have therapies in my toolkit that have been shown to get those chronic conditions and stuck problems moving. These include evidence based treatments like Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, Neurofeedback, and Emotional Transformation therapy.
I love working with teens, individual adults, parents and families of all compositions (Blended, Adopted, Co-parenting, LBGT, you name it). I am a Christian who is happy to pray with you if that’s something you desire, but I love working with clients of diverse religious spiritual or non-religious beliefs. We can work together to help you make sense of your past, get grounded in your present, and create the future you want.
“I cannot say enough about Alyssa. She is warm, down-to-earth, and extremely perceptive and insightful. She immediately puts you at ease, and I found her approachability and straightforwardness to be completely refreshing. She possesses a true gift of working through complex problems and getting to the heart of an issue. There is no topic or issue with which she isn't willing to dive into - and life's problems seem less intimidating when you have someone so dependable and non-judgmental willing to go there with you. I couldn't trust anyone more and highly recommend working with her!”

Real Help for Stuck Problems
If this is you or your child’s LAST DITCH, you are welcome in my office. So long as it is physically safe for you to be here, I love taking a shot at issues that just don’t want to budge. It is never hopeless. ✨
Also, if you think you’re not sick enough for therapy, you are also WELCOME in my office. There is no issue to small or insignificant. If it’s important to you, it’s important to me. I’m a strong believer in preventative healthcare, including for mental health. There is no such thing as you having to justify going to therapy. Don’t wait until you’re in crisis to care for yourself.
COACHING AND CONSULTATION FOR FEMALE ENTREPRENEURS, CREATIVES, AND HEALERS
I know there are gifts that only you have to offer--let's unlock those together.
My coaching clients are female business owners, leaders, creatives, healers, and caregivers that have come to a chapter in their story that they don't know how to turn the page from. This is often a transition, divorce, heartbreak, burnout, or unforeseen obstacle that is keeping them from unlocking their potential. Unlike counseling, coaching is not focused on your past, but your present circumstances and finding a way to write a new ending.
Training, Podcasting, and Events
I host the Firefly Movement Podcast, and work with churches, schools, and organizations to provide education and insight into a variety of issues. Commonly requested topics are:
Understanding and Healing Trauma, Teen Issues, Excelling During Adolescence, Mental Health 101, Getting Kids Ready for College, Eating Disorder Recovery, Parenting, Self Care, Burnout Prevention, Type 1 Diabetes, and Mental Health for Chronic Conditions
