Hi, I’m Felicia and one thing I know for sure is that “confusion is the first step towards clarity” (in the words of Syd Field). It is so easy to get caught up in our heads-there is so much to pay attention to that we may have missed other clues that might help us navigate through the murkiness of our thoughts and feelings.
I use a combination of different therapeutic techniques and work from strengths-based, mindfulness-based and attachment theory perspectives to help you explore issues impacting you during times of change or personal growth. When we are working together, I pay close attention to how you operate within multiple systems that can both contribute to and alleviate life’s challenges. We think together about experiences not about thinking away the challenges. I work with people around anxiety, depression, recent moves or life changes, and people who tend to be creative or may have been diagnosed with ADHD/ADD.
A little more about me: I am Licensed Clinical Social Worker in Washington State. My continuing education builds on a Masters of Social Work in 2007 from Eastern Washington University and includes training in motivational interviewing, solution-focused and body-centered therapies. While I am comfortable using the various ways of conducting therapy here, I am not able to message as frequently.
I will be with you every step of the way as you connect to yourself again and trusting yourself to make the choices that lead you to a life well-lived and well-loved. I am glad that you are here and I look forward to meeting you and seeing how we can work together!

Felicia is amazing. She brings up such great questions that really help me dive deeper into whatever it is I am dealing with. She brings humor and lightness to therapy and I really appreciate how she is able to ground me and bring out what needs to come up to keep healing. I wish everyone had a therapist like Felicia.

Felicia has been profoundly communicative, doing an excellent job of clarifying some of my more discordant thoughts while introducing new lines of questioning to help me tease out some thoughts that have proven beneficial for giving form to some of my more shapeless issues.

I've been working with Felicia for a few weeks now, and she's really helped me explore my feelings, and in turn, helped me start understanding myself more. I look forward to continuing the work we've started and gain a deeper sense of self awareness with her help.
