Mountain Soul Counseling, PLLC

Welcome!

You did it- you clicked the link and made it to my website, in the middle of whatever shitstorm is happening for you. This is the hardest part. If you can- take a deep breath- really, don’t bullshit this. And now, let’s find out if we are a good fit and how I can help you.
I specialize in supporting neurodivergent professional women and gender expansive folx in their 30s and 40s recovering from relationship trauma and family dysfunction to create a life where they are thriving in their personal and professional roles, confident to be their authentic selves, and empowered to set boundaries and engage in meaningful life activities.
HOW I CAN HELP

Chances are, if you are on this page, there’s a part of you (or many parts of you) that feel “different” from the rest of the world in some way. Maybe you relate to one or more of the following:

• Your brain NEVER stops running- and it gets worse when you try to relax or rest.
• You’ve been called “too sensitive” for most of your life.
• You feel intense shame for the intensity of your emotional reactions.
• You look “put together” on the outside but often feel chaotic on the inside.
• You resonate with “anxiety” or “depression”, but question if either is a good fit.
• You would describe your childhood as “sad”, “lonely,” “scary,” or “confusing.”
• You can’t make sense of your relationship with your family, particularly your parents.
• You feel often drained, lost, and hurt after interacting with your parents.
• You can’t understand why your parents criticize you, even though they say they love you.
• You feel unaccepted or unloved by your parents because of who you are as a person.
• Your romantic relationship history includes emotional, physical, or sexual abuse.
• You are often worried something bad will happen in your relationship.
• You want to know more about boundaries, communication, and healthy relationships.
• You are trying to recover from a recent breakup.
• You want to better understand who you are individually in romantic relationships.

At Mountain Soul Counseling, I see your “different” as a critical part of who you are. I’m not here to change your “different”, and I promise you I will never ask you to throw it away, bury it, disguise it, or stick it in a closet. I’m here to help you OWN your “different”- whatever that is for you. I firmly believe that without “different”- our world would be meaningless. We NEED “different”- and more of it, not less. You are probably so used to trying to make your “different” smaller- and I’ll be honest, and let you know that I’ve struggled with that for most of my life. If you are willing to imagine a life where you can take up space (physically, emotionally, spiritually) and exist as YOU rather than a watered-down, masked version of yourself- then you’ve come to the right place.
