My Approach to Helping
Hi! My name is Kelsey and I am a counselor in Washington state. I am currently accepting new clients from anywhere in Washington state (via telehealth).
Being a human is hard and sometimes we can feel lost, stuck, or alone. We develop ways of existing in the world that allow us to survive, but sometimes these patterns of coping block our ability to connect to ourselves with compassion. Therapy can be a way to identify these unhelpful patterns and reconnect to our wholeness and innate wisdom. My role as a counselor is to walk beside you on this journey, providing a safe space for a gentle and curious exploration of the wounds you have experienced and the ways you have learned to survive.
My approach to therapy is integrative and grounded in evidence-based practices. I am primarily influenced by attachment theory through an anti-oppression lens. This means that I will help you unpack the harmful and unhelpful messages you’ve internalized about yourself from childhood, traumatic experiences, or from just being a human in this world.
As your counselor, you can expect me to deeply listen to your experiences, offer feedback and insights, and help identify patterns and beliefs that may be getting in your way. My goal is to help you decrease shame and increase self-compassion. If it sounds like I'd be a good fit for you, I'd love for you to reach out to me through the links provided. Thanks!
