Jodi Alieksaites, MA Contemplative Psychotherapy
I have been counseling and working with individuals, couples and groups since 1995. I know that everyone struggles sometimes and having an ally is invaluable through those times. My first vehicle was astrological counseling (apprenticed under Quan Tracy Cherry in Kansas City, MO) which I complimented with Shamanic training beginning in 2003 (studied under Chris Davidson in Nederland, CO). I graduated from Naropa University with a Master's in Contemplative Psychotherapy in May 2013 and also work with Windhorse Elder Care. The emphasis in my counseling work is focused on death, dying, major life transitions & working with elders with dementia and Alzheimer's through embodiment. I am also currently an extern at The Bridge Center for Play Therapy.
I see myself as a therapist and a spiritual ally. My vision is to use any and all of my acquired skills and experience to support individuals and families in their healing.
It is at the crossroads of life that one meets his/her greatest challenges, deepest pain and most tenacious shadow parts. The crossroads also hold the most potent opportunity to open our hearts and allow vulnerability to be a faithful guide.
