“Meet this transient world with neither grasping nor fear, trust the unfolding of life, and you will attain true serenity.”

-Bhagavad Gita

Jessi Mitchell

I believe this quote highlights the essence of therapy, given that oftentimes grasping onto control or solutions can be a fear-based response to the uncertainty of life. Realistically, no amount of controlling, intellectualizing, or worrying can change the outcome or uncertainty of a situation. However, counseling can teach us that the power we do hold in these moments of uncertainty is the ability to embody presence, respond in a way that honors our authentic selves, and embrace the opportunity to learn about ourselves in doing so. As existential psychiatrist Viktor Frankl teaches, the space between a stimulus and our response to it is where our power to choose resides, and thus it is in this space that we can find growth and freedom. As a counselor, I am here to stand with you in that space, to encourage reflection and awareness, and to help shine a light in the places where it may initially feel hard to look.

I am earning my Master’s degree in Professional Clinical Counseling at La Salle University, and earned my Bachelor’s degree at North Carolina State University where I majored in Psychology and minored in Health, Medicine and Human Values. I completed my yoga teaching certification at Asheville Yoga Center in 2018.

I feel inspired working with pre-teens, adolescents, and young adults in transitory stages of life when the “Who am I?” and “Who will I be?” questions often lie at the forefront of one’s mind. I believe all we need to live an authentic and meaningful life already resides within us, waiting to be recognized and nourished. As a counselor, it is my role in the therapeutic relationship to help you acknowledge and access the beauty that is already you. 

I incorporate yoga and mindfulness into the counseling room to encourage a holistic perspective to treatment. My experience teaching trauma-informed yoga in residential and eating disorder treatment settings has taught me the importance of approaching mental health care through a body-centered lens in order to tap into our body’s innate healing processes and wisdom. I also conceptualize eating disorder care through a “Health at Every Size” philosophy, and feel it is incredibly important to incorporate the body into the treatment of a body-centered condition. 

In my free time, you can find me reading, practicing yoga, writing, spending time in my garden with my cats and playing guitar.
