Pregnancy, whether planned or unplanned, is often accompanied by a rollercoaster of emotions. In the midst of this emotional experience, comes a choice (i.e., parenting, adoption, or abortion). Here at Aligyned Counseling, I believe that the choice is yours, and I am with you. The decision to release a pregnancy (i.e., abortion) is rarely an easy one—nor is it always your preferred choice. Even if you are certain abortion is the best option for you, as with any significant life event, the thoughts and emotions that arise can be complex and contradictory. No matter what comes up for you, all of it is valid. Experiences, especially pivotal ones, are always unique, rarely linear, and eternally evolving. Because of this, seeking support to navigate what emerges with releasing pregnancy can be essential. Aligyned Counseling is grounded in healing, and utilizes both conventional and alternative therapeutic modalities to assist women before, during, and/or after this journey.

KELSEY REEP, LCSW
I'm a licensed clinical social worker. I received my Master’s Degree from Western Carolina University. Prior to that, I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from the University of North Carolina Wilmington. I utilize insight from both psychology (i.e., the study of the mind and behaviors) and social work (i.e., the understanding of human development, behavior, as well as, the social, economic, and cultural institutions and interactions) perspectives to guide my clinical practice. I recently completed Abortion Doula Training via Mountain Area Abortion Doula Collective and Homegrown Families and actively engage in abortion-related continuing education.
Having experienced abortion myself, equipped with a steadfast support system, I found that my most valuable interactions occurred in solidarity with other humans who had their own abortion experience(s). I am honored to work with Jen to provide a safe space to support folx in releasing pregnancy with dignity.
