(Currently not accepting new clients, other than KAP work/sessions.) I think finding the “right” therapist for you has to do with feeling good about that person, having a sense that being in their presence is enlivening and healthy, even when you’re working with something uncomfortable or difficult. I've been seeing clients for 13 years and love this work, mainly because I learn so much from and with my clients and relish having true, honest conversations and co-creating a container for transformation. My style is trauma-informed, and I frequently incorporate somatic(body)-based trauma healing modalities such as Brainspotting, EMDR, guided imagery, Ketamine Assisted Therapy (KAP), equine therapy, and psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy preparation and integration practices. Since losing my mom several years ago, I am learning to more gently and curiously approach the big existential questions of where we come from and where (and how) we go, of what it means to be an embodied human in these times. I welcome clients' grief and wondering, as we sit together in these explorations. I am fascinated by ongoing developments in neurobiology, entheogen research, and all the ways that the biochemical terrain in our bodies affect our emotions. I am formerly certified in EMDR, trained in Brainspotting, and integrate trauma processing whenever appropriate. My undergraduate degree is from Brown University, and I have a Masters in Counseling Psychology from Meridian University and a Masters in Education from Brown University. I've had the privilege to get to work in the social justice arena with youth, families and communities for the past 20 years via a nonprofit that is now known as Lichen Health. Although therapy can often feel appropriately cocooned in a sacred and contained space, I have seen again and again how one person's inner healing is catalytic to broader cultural transformation. I believe both are important.

(Currently full with waiting list, in person and online.) I bring to this work a deep belief in the strength and resiliency of the human spirit. As a therapist, I offer a warm, empathic presence to my clients as we co-create a safe container within which to explore the internal layers of trauma, confusion, transition, grief, or just a pervasive sense of discomfort with life as it is. Grounded in a relational approach to therapy, I draw on somatic, trauma-informed, and depth-oriented approaches to support clients in accessing their inner resources and self-compassion. Bringing attention, care, and insight to that which lies beneath the suffering you may be experiencing, we allow for the possibility of deep inner healing and growth. In my experience, the integration of mind, body, and heart offers a way through pain, a way forward. It would be my honor to accompany you on your journey towards greater ease, inner peace, and embodied well-being. My experience is drawn from many years in the healing arts as a Lomi body worker, massage therapist, yoga teacher, and life coach. I have also been a teacher, a real estate agent, and a small business owner. I received my undergraduate BA in Women’s Studies from Lewis and Clark College in Portland, Oregon, and my MA in Clinical Counseling from the Pacifica Graduate Institute in Santa Barbara, CA where I studied counseling through a depth psychodynamic lens. I have found my home in this work, and I would love to be able to meet you, right where you are.

(Currently accepting clients, online only.) I really enjoy working with people while they are transitioning from who they’ve been into who they truly wish to be in this world. I use multiple avenues of creativity to open different paths of insightfulness, believing that each person ultimately holds the internal wisdom they require to change and transform while also understanding that everyone requires support, empathy and at times someone to help hold themselves accountable. I have almost two decades of experience in providing compassionate empathetic support to individuals and groups while also holding enough of an objective perspective to help individuals facilitate the change in their life that will best help them to grow and develop in the ways that will best serve themselves and their communities. I work from a trauma informed perspective and integrate a variety of approaches within sessions with clients including but not limited to somatic awareness, mindfulness, Brainspotting, DBT and creative catharsis. I have experience in working with diverse populations of people hailing from many different backgrounds but all grappling with understanding how to navigate the complexities of being human in the 21st century.

Allison Rees, AMFT #139700, 530-264-8371
Allison aims to create a solid foundation of service to the community by working at the confluence of Jungian-based psychotherapy and philosophy. Within her practice she desires to support her clients’ healing by practicing the arts of deep listening, mindfulness & somatic awareness, nature connection, grief tending, dream work & ritual.
At the heart of her offering is a space in which clients can feel seen, heard, and felt; because being witnessed in both the light & the shadow, from a place free from judgement, can be one of the most healing experiences. Allison leans into the work of combatting guilt and shame, especially those correlated with the effects of gender identity and sexuality, substance use/abuse, trauma, and life transitions.
Allison received her MA in Counseling Psychology with an emphasis in Depth Psychology from Pacifica Graduate Institute. She has experience working in a residential drug and alcohol treatment center, offers spirituality-based coaching, and has provided harm reduction services to large events since 2015. Outside of being with clients in practice and working at Sierra Nevada Hospital’s crisis stabilization unit, Allison tends to the garden of her home and mind, seeking refuge amongst nature and connection with loved ones.
