Katelyn Elizabeth Nies, MA, LMHC, Counselor in Seattle
If you're experiencing anxiety, depression, stress, relationship issues, or are struck at a difficult point in life, I can help. I'm passionate about supporting others in recognizing and accepting their authentic self and giving them a fresh start on life. I approach each client as a unique individual, taking careful consideration of your circumstances & personal goals to help you discover how to live a satisfying, fulfilling, and valued life. In our sessions, I'll encourage you to take an active role and will work to engage you between our meetings to support you in living your goals.
My therapeutic approach is eclectic and strongly person-centered. I frequently utilize techniques from Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT) and promote mindfulness practice. I love ACT's focus on the present moment and approach on accepting the presence of unhelpful thoughts without letting them define us or govern our behavior.
A special focus of my practice is work-related stress. I know the huge impact it has on other important areas of life and am skilled in helping others find a sense of contentment and satisfaction with their job and refrain from taking tension home with them.
