About Alyx Aiello
Alyx Aiello | MS, LMHC
LICENSED MENTAL HEALTH COUNSELOR
Counseling for Adults (Age 18-50)
Alyx truly believes that we all have the capacity to change and transform our lives. Clients find Alyx’s approach to positive change to be empathic, collaborative, and accepting. She uses humor and levity to foster a comfortable, warm therapeutic experience.
Alyx has a specialty helping clients heal from traumatic experiences and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). She has particular interest in working with those suffering from religious trauma, including cult survivors. She also loves to support those experiencing anxiety, depression, self-esteem issues, and relational stress.
Alyx is passionate about helping queer clients. She believes folks in the LGBTQIAP+ community deserve a space to feel celebrated, seen, and heard. It is her goal to create a safe and empowering environment for clients to reclaim their authentic self.
She believes that challenging unhelpful thought patterns, behaviors, or beliefs is integral to change, and finds it helpful to encourage clients to consider “outside the box” thinking. In order to help facilitate growth, she draws from treatment approaches such as solution-focused therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, existential therapy, and a community-based perspective.
In her free time, Alyx spends time with her dog, Jimmy Page, hiking, swimming, and enjoying all the outdoors activities PNW living offers. A Portland native, Alyx spent many years in the southern US for education.
