Provider: Annapoorne Colangelo
Description: I began working professionally in 1969 as a counselor for incarcerated adolescent girls, then with abused children in several mental hospitals. Now, I counsel and facilitate healing in adults and incorporate what I learned about yoga, meditation, and other methods through the years. Here’s a testimonial from one of my clients: “Annapoorne’s gift is one of awakening within her clients their inherent wisdom. She holds the space for deep awareness, and with tools developed through many modalities of study and practice, she carries forth the ancient tradition of allowing healing from within.”

I’m trained in energy psychology, specifically Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) for treatment of stress and trauma. My approach is collaborative and person-centered.

Description: After 25 years of working at veterans hospitals, where I provided psychology services to impaired veterans, I have honed my skills to assist emergency responders and others who have to deal with traumas and work-related losses and impairments. I do talk therapy as well as specialized behavioral methods to deal with exceptional problems. These methods include Thought Field Therapy (a cousin of EFT), stress support or management, Open Focus attention training, anger management, and brain-unlocking techniques for dealing with [unwanted] obsessive ruminations or compulsive rituals. I also do psychoacoustic work that might include chanting, humming, and listening to certain tones, music, and sounds. I do drumming and trance journey work for soul retrieval (which requires a circle of trusted people to participate in the ceremony). I also use Qi Gong, especially when energy is depleted for too long. I am a licensed psychologist, and have an office in Freeland, seeing people there Fridays, Saturdays, and Mondays. (I have also seen people in an emergency on a Sunday.)
Number of sessions offered: one hour per week for a mutually agreed-upon period of time
