Rising Lotus Counseling is the Brattleboro based practice of Ted Walls, LMHC, and is dedicated to the idea that there is a warm compassionate presence alive in each of us that is capable of holding our most difficult experiences and healing our deepest wounds. My goal as a therapist is to help clients begin to identify and change the habitual patterns of reactivity that may be clouding their lives and relationships, become more relaxed and mindful about their emotions and motivations, and find greater clarity in the actions they take. In my practice, I see couples, individual adults and adolescents. I have over ten years of experience helping clients dealing with a wide range of issues including: depression, anxiety, addictions of all kinds, trauma recovery, panic attacks, obsessive thoughts and compulsive behaviors, mood instability, and relationship difficulties. My approach focuses on helping clients create a better relationship with themselves and others by using proven techniques and exercises that are immediately accessible from the very first session. My goal is to provide a warm and inviting environment that supports personal growth and self-acceptance.

“We can let the circumstances of our lives harden us so that we become increasingly resentful and afraid, or we can let them soften us and make us kinder and more open to what scares us. We always have this choice.” -
