Hi. My name is Alaina Reichwald and I'm a marriage family therapist who's been in practice for approximately 22 years. I enjoy working with all types of individuals and children.
I primarily work with people who are struggling with issues around growing within themselves; developing patterns that support the life that they want to lead, releasing patterns that are no longer working for them.
I really enjoy working with parents to bring a level of consciousness to parenting; a way in which they can become the best parent that they can be, while treating themselves with honor and respect on that journey.
Please feel free to reach out to me at any time if you'd like more information about the way that I work.
APPROACH & MORE ABOUT ME
I have worked in the counseling field for over 22 years. Although I have worked with most issues and all types of individuals, I currently focus on working with individuals who are looking to create the life they crave.
Releasing old patterns and creating new patterns that will support life long dreams of who the client is becoming. In addition, I use my deeply spiritual (non-religious) background to help my clients recognize they are here for a purpose and to unravel the layers of history that are no longer supporting them to allow their greatest sense of self to emerge.
In addition, I work with parents to create a deeply conscious relationship with their children where they are able to release their expectations of who they think or believe their child should be and create an open, trustful, welcoming environment where all in the family thrive.
Most of the clients I work with often arrive in counseling with some challenges with anxiety and/ or depression as these are often the signs we receive that allow us to realize that there are things in our lives that are not working. We then dive into our awareness and unpack those pieces to determine the map towards our greatest future.
