“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

Allison Batty-Capps HeadshotHow I Got Here

My name is Allison Batty-Capps. I am a therapist who integrates mind and body approaches. These include: somatic/body oriented modalities, yoga asana, breath work, mindfulness, and EMDR. By becoming a therapist 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 supporting 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 have been working with clients since 2015. I am licensed with the Oregon State Board of Marriage and Family Therapists. I am trained in EMDR. I am studying Yoga Therapy. I am studying DBT.

My Philosophy

I love my work and can think of any greater privilege than being able to assist others in working through childhood wounds that have impacted their sense of self and led to mental health challenges. I honor this privilege by listening deeply to my clients with my mind, body, 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. I help clients develop self care routines that support their well being and decrease their symptoms so they can experience wholeness and live a more joyful life.

I specialize in self care routine development, attachment trauma processing, and managing life stressors. I 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 20 minute video consultation to see if we are a good fit. I am looking forward to sharing this journey with you.
