Hello & Welcome
Thank you for coming to learn about counseling with me. I am Haley Kliefoth, a Professional Counselor who you might also call a truth-teller, trauma-educator, life-changer, child-whisperer and relationships guide.
I help people who are seeking wholeness in themselves or for their children but hold back because they are hopeless, scared, or don't know how to take the next step. I guide and empower people to find their healing path and move forward in life so they can stop carrying around the heavy weight of emotional pain, recapture their hearts, and live authentically whole-hearted.
I know from my years of sitting with my own stuff and working with plenty of kids and adults that healing is not just a theory or idea but an experiential reality and a recovery of your true, whole self. I believe in your decision to seek healing for yourself or your child, which is why I hope you will take the next step and reach out today to schedule an appointment.

you're here to feel fully".
A note to my present and future clients,
Asheville, North Carolina is a place of natural beauty and a spot that attracts both healers and people who want to heal. This corner of our beautiful earth seems to have a specialness to it -- an open, soothing, connected place where healing is not just a value but a way of life. My move to Asheville, the opening of my private practice, and my personal process of learning and practicing how to stay in relationship with myself all converged at the same time. Out of it comes my hope and desire to serve this community through a relationship of healing and coaching with adults and children. If you're working with me or you want to work with me, know that I am committed to the protection of your hurt and your hope, and to being present with you in your healing and evolution.
I look forward to speaking with you soon.
Take care of yourselves and each other,
H a l e y
