Accepting Clients

Hi, I'm Lydia and I utilize a mindfulness based approach to aid clients in exploring their authentic selves and behavioral patterns.

Counselor in Bellingham, WA

About My Clients

Like a Phoenix, I believe individuals have the ability to rise from the ashes as renewed, stronger versions of themselves. Whether those ashes are from broken relationships, perpetual marital problems, crippling anxiety, career dissatisfaction or the aftermath of trauma, they have the power to transform you. While my experience is diverse, I specialize in working with couples issues and anxiety/OCD disorders.

My Background and Approach

I have both my LMHC and NCC credentials and specialize in working with Couples/Relational issues, as well as Anxiety disorders in individuals. I am a big outdoors enthusiast and love to incorporate physical wellness into my counseling services when desired. I have experience in a variety of mental health settings that include working at a non-profit for 5+ years, an inpatient facility, a group practice and now my own practice for the past three years. My three top values in life are authenticity, adventure and peace. I am a type 5 enneagram, so I thrive on learning new things. I often share articles, videos and worksheets each week that are aimed at aiding you in the counseling process.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

"Words are, in my not so humble opinion, our most inexhaustible source of magic. Capable of both inflicting injury and remedying it."--Albus Dumbledore. Counseling to me is one source of this magic that Dumbledore mentions. I believe counseling is not a one size fits all approach and I use multiple modalities in order to cater a specific treatment plan to each individual/couple based on what is needed. I am LGBTQIA+ allied and sex/kink positive. My goal as your counselor is to be genuine enough to laugh and cry with you, and honest enough to tell you the truth. I would be honored to join your on your journey to becoming the strongest version of yourself.
