Align Counsel – Amanda Ball, MS, NCC
As a kink- and sex-positive professional I enjoy working with individuals and couples from all backgrounds. Whether you are a couple with years of experience in a BDSM relationship or an individual exploring your kink identity for the first time, I meet you where you are on your journey. In addition to my knowledge of kink/BDSM, I am knowledgeable and experienced with polyamorous and non-monogamous individuals and couples in a variety of relationship structures. I am body-positive, and welcoming of folks from the LGBTQ community. I self-identify as a queer cis woman, and have taken multiple trainings to improve my competence in working with trans and non-binary folks. In the counseling room I do more than talk therapy, we’ll work to get you out of your head and into the present moment, leaning in to your intuitive wisdom to guide our work. I aim to help my clients reconnect with their true selves, shed old ways of being and create a more enriching, fulfilling life. I am conveniently located in SE Portland, offer sliding scale rates and can bill your insurance out of network. I look forward to hearing from you!
