Majken Elek, MA
Licensed Professional Counselor
We all deserve to feel aligned, safe and nurtured. Cultivating compassionate self awareness and acceptance, I believe, are at the core of healing, change and growth. When we feel healthy and fulfilled we are more likely to live with presence and peace and contribute to a kinder world.

I utilize a creative integrative approach, centered in mindfulness, somactics and attachment, to promote increased consciousness of thoughts, values, needs, and mind/body behavior patterns. Observing our emotional self awareness increases our ability to cope with stress, relationships, and life challenges. I will collaborate with you to move toward balance, wholeness, and a more integrated self. Free 30 min phone consultation and sliding scale fees. I am located within the Portland Insight Meditation Center.
