My Approach to Helping
Hi - I'm Alyxx. My pronouns are theythem. I am a person-centered counselor with 7+years of experience as an MH therapist and more than 15 years as a Chemical DependencySUD counselor. My primary focus has been with the alternative community - LGBTQ+, Non-traditional relationships (triads, poly, BDSM partnerships), and so forth. I have also spent a great deal of time working with folks in or considering transition, gender, or other kinds! I use a blend of CBT and other evidence-based treatment modalities informed by a client-focused and respectful approach. I am also trained in EMDR and find that to be an amazing practice in conjunction with talk therapy. With chemicals, as with other aspects of our lives, I am very solidly in the Harm Reduction camp and want to meet you where you are to help you go to where you want to be.
I work with clients in Washington, Oregon and Idaho at this time, and can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org, and on my website which is alyxxbergcounseling.com
About me: I'm Queer, Poly, Pagan, Non-Binary and Non-judgmental about lifestyle issues. I am a therapist because I am a Priestess. I am well aware that people have told you how to think and feel and what is good for you and your lifestyle and how you come up short. I think we as people on the edges can make our own choices about our lives and can become an embodiment of self-love and PRIDE.
