I am Ivana Ayala-Esslinger, Ed. S

Licensed Mental Health Counselor


What you seek is seeking you- Rumi

Are you seeking support and a safe environment to problem solve, learn to soothe your nervous system and work through feelings of anxiety, depression and hopelessness? Are you an adolescent navigating your self-worth, expression or sexual Identity? Are you an adult navigating mental wellness and how to develop better coping skills? Are you a work horse who can't seem to get a break? My holistic perspective includes focus on the mind, body and spirit. While you have everything you need inside, sometimes we need someone to bring it to light. I applaud your courage.

I create a space of empathy, safety and hope where you can begin your journey towards healing and growth. At times of loss, despair, longing, and hopelessness it can be difficult to know where to go for support. With my time in education and knowledge of local resources I love providing tools, education and unconditional positive regard to my clients.

I provide a compassionate, optimistic and down to earth experience for my clients as we work together in a comfortable environment. As a mom, diagnosed with chronic fatigue, a history of trauma and a hearing impairment, I empathize with most. My perspective on holistic health, keeps me openminded towards avenues of treatment for mental, physical and spiritual health.

 I thank you for joining me on this journey and I look forward to working with you. 


As your Holistic Mental Health Professional, I’m committed to empowering you to live a life that is most aligned with your best and highest version of yourself.
