Reese Wells is a Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor Associate specializing in mindfulness-based counseling for clients experiencing stress, anxiety, anger, depression, and substance use. His therapeutic support dog, Joe, is a certified Canine Good Citizen and may be a part of counseling sessions.
With his experience and certifications in expressive-arts therapy, mindfulness coaching, yoga teaching, and outdoor leadership, Reese blends traditional talk therapy with body-centered, present-focused techniques designed to create a safe and non-judgmental counseling relationship. His experience includes individuals, couples, and families ranging from age 13 and older. Reese also works well with clients experiencing work distress, relational issues with their partner or family, and clients suffering from addiction. Reese’s therapeutic style is influenced by person-centered, gestalt, and existential counseling. In session he is present-focused, transparent, and relational.
Reese believes counseling is unique to each client – combining practical skill-building with depth exploration, he works not as ‘the expert’ but as a guide walking alongside his clients in their healing journey. He has developed a robust set of evidence-based resources for clients to access during and between sessions to assist with their therapeutic work.
Reese is offering both in-person and secure telehealth sessions for clients Monday-Friday during normal business hours. His office is located in Asheville, North Carolina. He also offers specialty sessions for clients interested in wilderness-based counseling. Reese accepts insurance with Blue Cross Blue Shield and Friday Health Plans, and a sliding-scale fee for clients without insurance.
