I specialize in trauma and PTSD, depression and anxiety, and addictions. I'm a real human, and I'll treat you like one, too. You'll probably cry a bit, laugh a bit more, and feel heard and understood along the way. You'll leave therapy more equipped to manage the vortex that life can throw at you.

I am certified in EMDR, a multi-purposeful therapy especially useful in helping people overcome the negative effects of trauma. Also helpful in the management of tough feelings and addictive behaviors, EMDR is one of the most evidence-based therapies counselors have to offer. I also utilize traditional and effective talk therapy.

Growing up, I always knew that I was different. Intuitive, creative, sensitive and emotional, I knew that I didn't fit the mold I was given but I could not understand why. Through engaging with my own experience of gender and sexuality, I was able to figure out how all the pieces of myself fit together and enable me to live fully and authentically in my world.

As a therapist, I work with others who feel that they do not fit - those of us who have felt discomfort in ourselves, in our families, in our communities. I believe that in order to truly understand who we are and who we want to become, we must explore the experiences that we’ve had and look at the impact they have had on us. Once we understand what we have to work with, we are free to chose the best ways to move forward on the journey.

Welcome to Entwine Therapy. I am Jaxx Alutalica, and I am here to guide you in exploring your innermost self, deepening your relationship to pleasure and desire, and finding your unique expression. It takes courage and commitment to yourself to choose to seek therapy, and I am honored to be invited into that process with you. As humans, we find healing in being witnessed in our pain and our growth, and by having someone to walk along side us as we explore our innermost world, relationships to others, and our awareness of self. Finding someone that can hold space for you while you connect with your vulnerability and honesty in your experience is the first step to beginning.

My approach to therapy is unique in that I blend contemporary evidence based therapeutic approaches with traditional healing techniques, like mindfulness and body awareness, that have been passed through generations of healers. In our sessions, we will balance the mind and the body to create an integrated awareness of who you are and what you need to flourish. I have specialized training in working with issues surrounding sexuality and intimacy as well as sexual trauma and relationship dynamics. In our work together, we will collaborate together to find the path best suited for your journey. I cant wait to meet you, let’s begin!

All you need to bring to therapy is an open mind and a willingness to explore. I am a very interactive therapist; I give a lot of feedback and guidance. In my work with individuals, I help people see how they developed the coping skills and defense mechanisms they did, and how to begin recognizing them in a less judgmental way. I also teach couples new communication skills: how to rebuild trust and safety after a breach, how to mirror one another, ways to validate and empathize. We work on breaking bad patterns and create healthier ones using positivity and appreciations.

It's so rewarding to help children, couples and families heal old and current wounds, and to see my clients use therapy as a way to soar to new emotional freedoms. Please don't be in pain anymore: contact me so we can set goals together, develop healthier ways of coping, and watch you blossom
