Welcome to Whole Life Wellness. My name is Alyssa Nagel (pronounced A-Leesa). Simply by using your energy to visit this page, you have already taken the first step toward your own health and wellness. I am honored you are here and considering allowing me to walk with you during this part of your life. I will do all I can to facilitate the positive change you seek.
I hold a MA in Mental Health Counseling and an EdS in Counselor Education from Southeast Missouri State University. I have experience with both inpatient counseling and outpatient working with a wide range of issues including but not limited to depression, anxiety, PTSD, grief /loss, difficult life experiences, stress, addiction, relationships, anger management, gender dysphoria, LGBTQ+, serious and persistent mental illness, performance enhancement, and self-harming behaviors. I specialize in ages 13 and up. I believe firmly in the power of radical acceptance. Whatever the experience may be...noticing, accepting, expressing, and finding true choice leads to deep change and empowerment.
Through the use of eclectic interventions, I am guided by the principle of the Carl Rogers' quote, "The curious paradox is that when I accept myself just as I am, then I can change." I will accept you for who and where you are and honor you with no judgment.
I am EMDR trained through the EMDR Institute, observe the guidelines of the Association for Spiritual, Ethical, and Religious Values in Counseling, am LGBTQ+ friendly, and a certified yoga teacher. I look forward to having the honor of walking with you as we move toward the fullest expression of yourself.
My office is located in the Broadway Federal Building at 339 Broadway, Cape Girardeau, MO.
I can be contacted at 573.987.0602 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, and look forward to answering any questions you may have.
