“The root of all health is in the brain. The trunk of it is in emotions. The branches and leaves are the body. The flower of health blooms when all parts work together.” – Kurdish saying
How I Got Here
My name is Allison Batty-Capps. I am a therapist who integrates mind, body approaches. These include: Somatic/Body Oriented modalities, yoga, Jungian psychology, mindfulness, expressive arts therapy, and EMDR. By becoming a therapist and Reiki practitioner in my forties, I bring the experience and wisdom of half a life well-lived. I bring the enthusiasm and curiosity of someone who has witnessed individuals capable of great change and healing. I come to this work with a passion for mentoring others in their growth and healing. I believe that everyone has within themselves the ability to heal themselves.
I graduated from Pacifica Graduate Institute, where I studied Jungian Psychology. I am licensed with the Oregon State Board of Marriage and Family Therapists. I am trained in EMDR. I have also completed a 300 hour yoga teacher training program and can integrate yoga into our work.
I love my work and cannot think of any greater privilege than being able to assist others in returning to wholeness and remembering their Authentic Self. I honor this privilege by listening deeply to my clients with my mind, body, spirit, soul, and heart.
Based on my training and understanding of current neuroscience research, I have seen that the difficult experiences we have faced are stored in our body and mind in complex ways. This often leads to coping skills that may cause physical, emotional, and mental distress. I am curious about these aspects of an individual and believe that all individuals have the innate ability to heal themselves and that healing is an integrative process. As a result, I believe in a holistic, relational approach.
I provide a safe container to explore past experiences, body sensations, and belief systems which you feel may be limiting you from experiencing your Authentic Self in its wholeness. Together we will forge a path of discovery assisting you in healing the wounds of your past so you can experience wholeness and live a more joyful life.
I specialize in trauma and anxiety and work with adults. It is important to find a practitioner you feel comfortable and safe with. I encourage you to reach out and schedule a free initial 15 minute video consultation to see if we are a good fit. I am looking forward to sharing this journey with you.
