Anahata is the sanskrit word used in yoga practices to describe the heart chakra. Holding all of you without judgement the heartspace is a place to observe the "good" and the "bad" without judgement. What space is there to discover here? What unlimited source and power is untapped within the heart space that we can discover?
About Anahata Counseling
Anahata Counseling was started by Annie Memmott in October of 2020.
This practice is an online, private pay, therapy service.
Have you always known you were different? Like, so different most people just... don't get it? It may feel like there is just no corner of the planet where you can be yourself. You have spent your whole life trying to be what everyone else wanted you to be. When you think about who you are, you can't really put a finger on what that is exactly. Maybe you believe that if you just play along with everyone else you will be safe, successful, and better off. Maybe you have reached a point where you realize that, that is no longer working for you. I know what it is to open the door of change, and question whether to walk through. Will I be too different? Will I have friends? Will I know what to do? The gift of change is often one we avoid, and what if you didn't have to do it alone?
Being a YOU-nicorn
I have always been different, whether it was choosing music in a sports dominated school, being a fat kid, not being in relationships like everyone else, or identifying somewhere in the queer galaxy, I never quite fit in. I know what it is to feel like everyone else got the roadmap for living, and you are just trying to figure it all out with some scotch tape and bubble gum.
As a counselor I bring a unique strengths based, positive psychology point of view. I offer lived experience in a lot of different areas like gender identity, sexuality, divorce, parenting, feeling like a misfit etc. My only goal is to invite you to see the brilliance of you, as different as you are. If this sounds like you, if you have been waiting for someone who "gets it" wait no more!
I have experience with:
Person Centered Talk Therapy
LGBTQIAEP+ Community topics
Food Relationships and Body Communication
Sexuality and Sexual Identity
Adults Age 18+
Children Age 11+

How does Therapy Work?
You Scheduled a Session...Now what?
When you choose Anahata Counseling you are choosing to discover more about the difference that you are.
After the 30 minute consultation you will schedule an initial session.
Then you and I will establish a direction to head in, almost as if we were planning a hike.
After that, the only thing left to do is to acknowledge that up to this point you have already started the change process.
This journey is not a straight line, and I will be with you every step of the way.
