Andelige Trauma Counseling & Consulting, PLLC
Caring for your Mind!
About Our Practice
Working in a small town with limited resources, CEO/Founder Nancy sought to create a practice that offered services in a rural city in English and Spanish to meet the vital needs of persons with mental health issues. With the emergence of Telehealth services, the practice could reach clients across the state. Andelige was born to give people a space to recover and thrive. While Nancy started by seeing all types of mental health diagnoses, trauma seemed to be a common thread that would often surface. With the help of her partner, COO Priscilla Corson, the practice grew to treat various forms of trauma, develop a curriculum, and become an expert in treating complex trauma. It has made it its mission to treat trauma recovery with empathy and with the understanding that clients deserve to be treated as the experts in their own lives so that they can be whole again. Now the practice continues to treat various forms of mental health concerns, but one thing remains, an understanding that recovery is possible from whatever life has thrown at you.
Who We Serve

In addition, we have case management, wellness coaching, behavioral rehabilitation, and consulting services. We cater our services to be individualized to the needs of the client.
