About Me

Hello and welcome. My name is Mary "Jane" Poulson and I go by "Jane". Thank you for reviewing my profile. I know how difficult it can be to reach out for help and even more challenging to find a therapist who feels comfortable enough to trust and share our problems, conflicts, or emotional pain with. I am here to provide support, assist you with processing and offer tools to help you manage and possibly resolve some of life's challenges. I have more than 25 years of post-graduate experience in the behavioral health field working with adolescents and adults specializing in the treatment of anxiety, depression, and trauma while being compassionate and respectful. I am a graduate of Gonzaga University with a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology and I completed my undergraduate program in Psychology at the University of Oregon. I have been a Washington State Licensed Mental Health Counselor (#LH00005937) since 2001, a Children’s Mental Health Specialist since 2000 and a National Certified Counselor (#43150) since 1995. My therapy style is down to earth and interactive providing counseling as a facilitator and educator. My approaches include, but are not limited to, Client-Centered, Solution-Focused, evidenced-based Cognitive Behavioral Therapy(CBT), Trauma-Focused CBT, Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) and teaching mindfulness skills to decrease and manage symptoms while providing a supportive, safe therapeutic environment. I integrate complementary methodologies and techniques to offer a highly personalized approach tailored to each individual. I am also experienced working with grief and loss, post-partum depression, other mood disorders, LGBTQ focus, attention problems, chronic pain, communication and relationship problems, job stress or other life issues. It takes courage to ask for help, so if you think I could be a good match please reach out and we'll work together to improve the quality of your life. I look forward to meeting you. Be well. Jane Poulson, MA, LMHC, NCC

In just a few sessions Jane has helped me begin to work through some traumatic childhood experiences that had previously been unaddressed. She's helped me not just face those memories and emotions without feeling overwhelmed, but to see them from a new perspective that makes those experiences easier to live with. I've always been afraid to talk about these things with anyone, but she immediately made me feel supported and safe to express them. I'm looking forward to working with her more.
