Mindful and Somatic Approaches to Change


Individual Therapy
Individual Therapy

Perhaps you are dealing with anxiety or depression, grieving the death of a loved one or a painful breakup? Maybe you struggle with belonging, are overwhelmed by a transition, or just feel stuck and know that you are ready to do something about it? I believe in your capacity to find the healing you seek and create the life you envision.  Let me help you uncover unconscious patterns and beliefs that may be keeping you from living from your best self. Together we will develop personal tools and embodiment practices that will support you in creating real and lasting change. 

Couples Therapy

Do you want more intimacy, connection, and joy in your relationships? Do you want to learn how to resolve conflict with more skill and ease? Do you find yourself in patterns that are unhealthy to the relationship? Relationships are the one thing that most of us deeply want, yet we are rarely taught how to create healthy connections with an intimate partner.  Let me help you bring more love, capacity, and presence into your connection, whether you are working through challenges or simply want to hone your relationship skills. 

My Approach

Are you looking for more than traditional talk therapy? I am a Certified Hakomi Therapist, a somatic counseling modality that uses mindfulness and the wisdom of the body to go beyond traditional talk therapy. I am also trained in IFS and Gestalt, PACT couple therapy, compassionate communication (NVC), as well as attachment wounding and trauma. Varying approaches are called for in different moments and with different clients. I will work with you to see what may be most helpful for you in any given session.

Working with Annie

Welcome, I’m so glad you are here. My name is Annie Vail, (she/her pronouns). I am a holistic, body/mind psychotherapist. Taking the step to pursue counseling is a meaningful decision. In doing so, you are already seeking to reclaim the life you want to live. Therapy offers the potential to live your most empowered, joyful, connected, healthy, and authentic life. 


I believe that beyond the struggle and pain of life is an innate wisdom that guides each person to their wholeness. As my client, I will see you in this wholeness, not your wounding. Your unique strengths and resources become allies in the transformation process.

My therapeutic style is a blend of compassion, warmth, and support, as well as being relational, grounded and direct. I aim to create a safe and empathetic environment for clients to explore and address patterns that hinder them from achieving their desires and goal. My true passion lies in supporting my clients to know themselves better, heal from the past, and step further into their own authenticity.

Using a variety of mindfulness, somatic and attachment-based therapeutic

modalities, I bring a depth of insight into each client's life and circumstance, helping to bring awareness to underlying patterns, free up blocks, and heal from the past. My priority is to provide attuned support and guidance, so that your inner wisdom and wholeness lead the way in you living from your Organic Self. 

You can read more about me, my education and my training here. Choosing the right therapist is important and can take time. I'd love to support you in that process by offering a free 30 minute consultation.
