Professional statement

Aigner (pronounced an-ye) Fells is a Licensed Professional Counselor located in the DC Metro area. Aigner is a true advocate for mental health, inside and outside of her therapy practice. She aspires to normalize accessing help across all communities. She works mainly with individuals who feel overwhelmed by intense emotions such as sadness, panic, anxiety, loneliness, frustration, anger, and more. She also helps clients who feel numb to their feelings and strive to reconnect with their inner selves.

Aigner’s approach to therapy is strengths-based and holistic. She wholeheartedly believes that each client has unique strengths that can be leveraged in their mental health journeys. With these innate strengths, clients can take a look at their physical, mental, social, and spiritual health. Growing an awareness of the balance between these components of health can help clients develop their goals. Aigner then supports clients to reach these goals. Aigner encourages clients to reflect on past experiences and connect how those experiences influence their current lives.

Aigner earned a Master’s degree from Walden University. She has over 13 years of experience collaborating with clients. Her goal is to create a comfortable space where clients feel safe speaking about their feelings, being vulnerable, and opening themselves up to change.


Message to clients

Welcome to Beyond Infinity Counseling! I recognize that making the decision to start therapy may be difficult and I am honored that you are considering my practice to begin your therapy journey. While starting therapy can be difficult, it can also be the first step towards a more fulfilling life.

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor. My theoretical orientation can best be described as a mixture of Person-centered and Cognitive Behavioral techniques. Person-centered therapy encourages Self-Actualization and Cognitive Behavioral strategies aimed at changing behavioral patterns serve as a catalyst to get there. In our work together, you will get a supportive/interactive therapist, an educator, and a goal-focused, direct, and empathetic coach to help you navigate the most challenging aspects of your life and champion your successes.

I encourage client (s) to reflect on past experiences, identify current challenges and gain awareness of cognitive, behavioral - relational patterns and psychosomatic reactions. Through this awareness and an effective therapeutic partnership, we will work together to develop desired goals and various treatment strategies. While I tailor my techniques to fit the need of each individual client, one thing that remains constant is my desire to normalize the art of therapy. I spend my sessions not only providing therapeutic treatment, but also creating a safe space. It is not until we feel safe enough to let our guards down, can we truly make progress.
