Get to Know Us

In the spirit of inspiration and compassion, Alternative Wellness Therapies, PLLC emerged in 2021 as the brainchild of Michelle Petty and Marissa Ebert. Recognizing the community's need for more than just a standard mental health private practice, Michelle and Marissa envisioned a haven for alternative methods of treatment, providing diverse options under one welcoming roof.

At Alternative Wellness Therapies, the mission is to guide you towards achieving a harmonious balance between your mind and body through a range of professional, high-quality services. The founders' commitment goes beyond conventional approaches, embracing alternative methods that nurture your overall well-being.


In this compassionate space, the goal is not just to address mental health but to offer a comprehensive sanctuary where individuals can explore diverse paths to healing and personal growth.

Diverse Approaches

We understand that therapy extends beyond the conventional "talk therapy" and is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Our team of experienced therapists utilizes a variety of research-proven techniques tailored to meet the unique needs of each client, spanning from birth and upwards.
