Meet The Arise Team

Alexandra House, LPC

From my perspective, life is an experience. It’s an amazing gift. I know my purpose & passion is to guide others to live it to its fullest. You’ve got one shot. Like a cardiogram, we experience highs & lows with pause in-between. Every one of us needs help, outside perspective, the listening ear, & someone to set us back on the path, especially while in crisis. The ability to look in the mirror, identify & ask for help is truly the mark of an amazing being.

“If you’ve found yourself here, thank you for being awesome.”

 

I’ve dedicated my life to what brings me joy. It happens to be being there for others when they need it most. Watching my clients heal & learn to love themselves & others is my passion. I’m experienced, qualified & motivated to be there for you.

I know you will see & feel the difference of how we work. I have and it’s translated to faster, better, more empathic comfortable healing.

Hey, I love working here too…

During my years of tenure as a professional counselor I have found a few simple truths. Anxiety is real. Anxiety is real & it is ok. Let’s turn it into a strength. Trauma, depression & abuse are real. Heal them & become stronger. Everyone deserves help & no one should go through it alone. Perhaps its lack of sleep, lack of self-care, lack of motivation, intrusive thoughts, diminishing personal connections, avoiding social engagements, over/under eating, or removing ourselves from the ones we love. Most of us will experience these very real issues at varying levels during different points in our lives. I’ve been there & I get it.

 

“Everyone deserves help & no one should go through it alone.”

Laura Woodruff, LMSW

My passion for healing comes from my own life experiences & realizing the importance of having solid support at the right time. We all walk a very unique path. It brings me joy to set the stage for the uniqueness that is you to feel safe. My goal is to stand beside you as you step into your best life. I believe authenticity is true power. I personally have experience overcoming fear, loss, anxiety, & uncertainty. You are not alone. Ever…

 

“Can you remember who you were before the world told you who you should be?”

 

My pledge is to be there for you when you need it most. If you’re reading this, you have what it takes to live the life of your dreams. Let’s go get it!

“Far Away From Yourself For Far Too Long”

As you are discovering who you are and how you want to live, I will provide a safe place where you can be heard & healed. My pledge is to guide you through building self-confidence, self-worth, navigating life’s changes, & finding your true power. My promise is to always operate with the ARISE “Standard of Care”. 

You are ready. I know it.…

Trauma is usually at the root of the blocks we wish to overcome in our life. Sometimes, life can hand us the responsibility of healing it ourselves. This means you are the only one strong & brave enough to say, “It ends now. No more.” With that warrior mindset, you are unstoppable. It’s your turn to be the change that you want to see in your life. Take this leap of faith & watch everything in your reality conspire to bring you the life you deserve.

Marilee Tryon, LAC

Guiding my clients to solutions with compassion & empathy is my favorite part of work. A comfortable environment, authenticity & patience are some of the qualities I enjoy bringing to each client interaction.

 

“Stop letting life happen to you & start making your life happen for you.”

 

I firmly believe that everyone is the author of their own story & it can be written to our heart’s desires at any time.

“Responsible & Reliable, yes please..”

Among my favorite qualities are responsibility & reliability. It is my pledge to exemplify those traits as we move along your healing path. The ARISE “Standard of Care” always sets the tone of safety, security, & comfortability for my clients.

In my opinion, authenticity is key to our mental wealth. I’ve found that the most valuable currency is being the most true version of ourselves. Throw in some self-love & you’ve got a recipe for greatness. Sometimes life can make it challenging to stay on that path. Maybe ambition is lost, or a compass is broken through no fault of our own. Going our own way is hard, few try, & most give up. Those that succeed become the example.

 

“When your authenticity shines bright you will feel more compassion for yourself.”

 

As an experienced Licensed Associate Counselor, I will use proven methods to help you find your peace. My focus is the treatment & healing of Anxiety, Trauma, Depression, & Life Transitions.

Elizabeth Thomas, LMSW

I’ve dedicated my life to helping adults & teens heal when they need it most. I’ve found that when my clients open up to the possibility of healing, magic happens & mountains can be scaled.

 

“Relax & breathe. I’ve got you”

 

My office is a safe space & I’m here to listen. We will find the best way to get you back on your path & hopefully we’ll have some fun along the way.

“Empathy & Compassion”

Empathy & compassion are the most important components to a great experience in therapy. I strive to bring these into every client interaction. The ARISE “Standard of Care” is always used to set the best backdrop for your healing journey.

My goal is to help you find your courage in the face of adversity & my commitment is to be with you every step of the way. Talking about our fears, worries, & frustrations can be scary. I’ve found that when we have a friend to help guide us, it’s easy & rewarding.

 

“Let the fire inside of you burn brighter than the fire around you.”
