Alexis Ornellas, MA, LPC, LAC. Somatic psychotherapist and resiliency trainer in Boulder, Colorado.


Do you have an unrelenting tape of thoughts playing in your head and running your life?  Does anxiety and worry cause your heart and mind to race so much so that you can’t relax or sleep? Do you feel so depressed, numb, and unmotivated that life feels meaningless and purposeless? Do you doubt yourself constantly and struggle to make your own decisions, or trust your decisions once you’ve made them?  Do you engage in a behavior compulsively and can’t stop (like an alcohol, drug, or food addiction or restrictive eating)? Have you experienced one or multiple traumatic events in your life and feel like you haven’t been able to move on, almost as if you are reliving it?

Do you really hate certain parts of yourself and wish you could just wish it away?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, than seeking counseling with me is right where you should be.  If you work with me, you will learn how to shine the light of awareness on these parts.  Together we will help you develop the resilience and power you need to tolerate feeling uncomfortable, something we cannot escape in life.  You will learn to transform this part of you by learning to listen to yourself with compassion and curiosity.

Together, we will help you recognize these parts that you hate as your greatest teachers and allies.

And what are the common problems or parts that people come to me struggling with?

  • Substance abuse or addiction
  • Eating Disorders
  • Trauma and PTSD
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Anger Management
  • Co Dependency/ Relationship Issues
  • Failure to Launch
  • Fertility/Pregnancy Issues
  • Grief and Loss

I will teach you how to be your own therapist and healer so that you can overcome any future challenges, and have full confidence in yourself and your ability to lead a happy, purposeful, and fulfilling life.

“I am fortunate to be working with Alexis. After a lifetime of various therapeutic approaches my experience with Alexis has been surprisingly effective, and quite enjoyable. What pleases me the most is how easily our work integrates into my life. I am making behavior changes that I had feared were impossible; with very little effort. My approach has shifted from concern that I would always struggle with issues such as depression and addiction, to absolute confidence that with Alexis’s help I will live the rewarding, happy life that I wish for everyone. I have improved so profoundly, and in such a short time, that I mention Alexis to anyone who will listen.”
