Hello and welcome!

I am a mental health counselor at Embrace Recovery and Wellness Center, LLC. I work primarily with individual teenager and adult clients, providing support for individuals working to improve interpersonal relationships, develop coping skills, or enhance their personal growth. I also assist non-traditional couples in deepening their connection and intimacy with each other.

I believe that everyone possesses the ability to find their own solutions, and that deepening personal self-awareness is the key to seeing those solutions more clearly. My job is to provide a safe place where clients can explore themselves in order to better position themselves to make healthy choices. I’m fascinated by the intersection of science and counseling, and often use neuroscience facts to help clients understand the connection between brain, body, behaviors, and emotion. I also have a little co-therapist, Quigley. She’s a miniature Australian Shepherd who provides therapy services in the form of licks and pets! I provide services to both Spanish- and English-speaking clients and would love the opportunity to discuss how I may help you in counseling. I look forward to hearing from you! 

License & Certification(s)

Look what people are saying about Alonna.....
"Alonna has really helped me keep my daughter on track. Quigley is a great addition and help too." 

"I can honestly say that Alonna has been the best counselor that I've had. It took me a while as I had several therapists before but the time is well spent. I always feel like I'm being heard and we work on solutions to my situations together. I could not recommend Alonna and Embrace enough as I've had a great experience in this welcoming environment"
