Kelsey has a special interest in eating disorders, body image, trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationships. She provides individual, couple, and family therapy. Working from a systems perspective, Kelsey recognizes the power of relationship in promoting change. Her therapeutic influences come largely from acceptance and commitment therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness techniques, emotion focused therapy, and dialectical behavioral therapy.
Passionate about eating disorders and their relevance in our culture, Kelsey works with a wide range of food and body issues. From body image and emotional eating patterns to the more acute disorders, Kelsey enjoys helping clients find peace in their relationship between food and body.
Kelsey also works with horse owners and riders who are looking for a therapist who understands the role they can play in one’s life; whether for competition or pleasure. Still an avid competitor, Kelsey finds work with athletes of all types intriguing, working on the relationship between stress and performance, injuries, and the role exercise can play in ones life.
Recognizing the ever changing culture and wide use of technology for communication, Kelsey offers distance therapy via phone or video when appropriate. This offers continuity of care as clients move through transitions and relocations. This service also accommodates those who have challenging schedules or difficulty arranging transportation to the office.
Unbridled Counseling is lucky enough to be backed up against Bridle Trails State Park, a 28 mile trail system just minutes from Seattle. The trails are only open to foot and horse traffic, making it a quiet environment for a walk. Many people feel more
comfortable in the outdoor setting and find that they do their best work while incorporating movement.
Kelsey has met the requirements to be an approved supervisor in Washington state, offering guidance and support to therapists seeking licensure. Supervision can be provided for both talk therapy and equine assisted therapy, with specialized consult in eating disorders.
