About me

Thank you for taking the time to learn a bit about who I am! I'm Stevee, a 47 year old licensed mental health counselor, art therapist and clinical supervisor in the Everett Washington area, and I am here to walk with those in need through tough times.

My entire career has centered around trauma informed care with diverse populations, Native American communities and those living within and around them in a hybridized urban/rural setting. I have eleven years experience supporting people who have a myriad of life challenges from historical trauma and systemic racism, betrayal trauma, historical and family trauma, relationship issues, victimization of all forms at all life stages, addiction, gender and sexuality issues, to spiritual and cultural connection. My specialty areas are Grief and Loss, Developmental Disabilities, Trauma and Gender and Sexuality exploration and resolution.

I practice Rogerian, person-centered, humanistic, transpersonal, existential, spiritual therapeutic connections and interventions with individuals, sometimes couples and families, and on rare occasion, adolescents. I am a registered Art Therapist, have basic training in EMDR and use DBT and other skills with the people I serve. I am also a Reiki Master and can navigate issues of spiritual importance from a variety of perspectives.

I am licensed in the state of WA and am also a clinical supervisor for a community clinic within a Native American community.

I am an outside-the-box clinician who uses intuitive transpersonal connection with my clients to provide a safe, affirming and often fun therapeutic experience while buckling down for hard emotional and spiritual work in a successful way. In that, I am a "homework" therapist and believe the "work" doesn't stop when the session ends.

My goal is to facilitate "Therapy" that feels like working through issues with a wise friend over coffee who happens to be well versed in counseling techniques.
