Adrianne Wallace is a native of the Gallatin Valley and a certified Circle of Security-Parenting facilitator with a B.A. in Liberal Arts with an Emphasis in Psychology and Human Development from Montana State University. Adrianne is completing her Master’s Degree in Marriage and Family Therapy through Northcentral University. Adrianne's background as a director of an attachment-based preschool (Merry Hearts) and her experience as a committed partner, mom, and stepmom motivate her to bring her passion for connecting people to counseling.
Throughout her career, Adrianne has used trauma-informed approaches in movement, art, and story-telling to help families experiencing transitions such as the birth of a new family member, geographical relocation, separation and divorce, blended families, the death of a loved one, and issues with growth and development.
Adrianne embraces everyone with heartfelt empathy and compassion and a sense of humor. A certified Mind Body Eating Coach through the Institute for the Psychology of Eating, she also brings an awareness of the impact that trauma can have on the body, particularly regarding issues with chronic pain, body image, and compulsive or restrictive eating. Finding success with somatic interventions herself, she continues to learn more about incorporating these into her own practice.
When she is not studying counseling, you can find her enjoying her partner's great cooking, riding bikes with her kids and her dog, or walking with a friend through every season.
