She stays away from the “fix it” approach and uses accountability and soft challenges to provide alternative views to the presenting issue.

Building a trusting therapeutic relationship is the most important stage before we explore your experiences together!

Grettel applies an emotions focused lens with an emphasis in trauma work through the use of EMDR. She has experience working with a diverse client population which includes suicide, self-harm, anxiety, depression, identity & cultural issues, body image and family reconciliation.

Grace received her Master of Arts degree in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Integral Counseling and Professional Clinical Counseling from the California Institute of Integral Studies.  Prior to that, she earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology & Social Behavior at the University of California, Irvine.  Grace completed her Master’s level practicum at Sierra Sunrise Wellness Group in Reno and is currently completing her post-graduate internship hours with Sojourn Counseling Group under the supervision of Natalie Sanchez, LMFT and Ellie Holbrook, LCPC.

Grace approaches her work with clients from the perspective that mental and emotional challenges are often a sign that something is out of balance.  While this imbalance may be uncomfortable, even deeply painful at times, it can be a strong motivator for change.  Positive change occurs when we are willing to bring our full awareness to our lives, including the difficult and painful parts.  This process is facilitated by a safe, supportive environment and a willingness to explore new ways of thinking, feeling, and engaging with the world.  Grace works to create just such an environment with her clients where together, they can explore how to bring areas of concern back into alignment.  Her approach is client-centered with an emphasis on holistic well-being and a focus on existential/transpersonal work.  She works primarily with adults and adolescents, as well as couples.  Her areas of focus include PTSD, complex trauma, anxiety, depression, navigating relationships, grief and bereavement, codependency, spirituality, and psychedelic integration.

Ali will be joining us and accepting new clients starting December 01, 2023.

2020 has shifted the world as we know it. Ultimate health has become our new form of currency. When the mental, emotional, financial, social, occupational, and spiritual realms are out of balance this produces inevitable stress and anxiety. My question to you is: How are you dealing with stress? Many of us have been conditioned to develop maladaptive coping strategies that have been either detrimental to our health or overall have been counterproductive, leaving us filled with an array of negative feelings in undesirable circumstances.

In my practice, I provide a safe space to uncover and explore your presenting problems and empower you to overcome life struggles. I practice from a holistic approach that encompasses: mind, body, and spirit components. Together, we can tackle obstacles that interfere with your personal health, the relationships you share with others, and overcoming traumas.

I specialize in Trauma-Informed practices, including EMDR therapy and mind-body Medicine, and am a certified Reiki Practitioner. Using these modalities, I tailor to the needs of children, adults, and families facing life adversities and traumatic events. I am here to assist you and provide you with the tools to unlock your ultimate health. Now, let’s begin.
