Happily, at a young age I found that counseling really helped me grow. It was here I discovered balance, comfort, and courage. Once I learned the skills to manage my emotions, I began to trust in myself once again. I was able to set challenging goals without feeling I would be sidelined by my emotions. These emotional skills learned in my youth have grown with me and have given me tremendous freedom to pursue my passions, take on exhilarating experiences and land exactly where I want to be right now – as a therapist at Bellevue Family Counseling helping youth master their own emotional wellbeing.

I became a counselor to help others find hope and their potential in life. I have experience working with civilian/veteran clients who have been diagnosed with a personality disorder, anxiety/panic, depression, PTSD, adjustment disorders, and who have suicidal ideation, attempts, and/or self-harming behaviors. While we diagnose in order to "name it to tame it," I view us all as human beings who need extra help along the path of life.

As a past athlete I know how it feels to always be striving for perfection. This desperation for being perfect can push you into doing unhealthy practices to be the best. This drive can even push you into using drugs and alcohol to numb this intensity out after a stressful game or competition. Or even worse when you disappoint yourself with your results you can even feel like there's nothing which can take away the extreme regret and pain aside from drinking and drugging. Sports Psych-Mental conditioning takes the negative feelings away and helps you get a handle on drinking and drugging while expanding on your sports performance.

Eastside Insight is the psychotherapy practice of Rose Gillis. Eastside's name, logo, and motto reflect the belief that the elements needed for overcoming an issue are already within. Pulling this intelligence into consciousness is a form of learning called insight. When insight becomes blocked then a relationship with a confidant, who doesn’t feel burdened by your troubles, can help in the process of bringing your truth forward into awareness. It is important then to find a therapist who you connect with, is objective, and supports your needs. The website eastsideinsight.com was created for you, with this pursuit in mind.

Solution Focused Brief (SFBT) Therapists
Solution-focused therapy in Mercer Island, sometimes called "brief therapy," focuses on what clients would like to achieve through therapy rather than on their troubles or mental health issues. The therapist will help the client envision a desirable future, and then map out the small and large changes necessary for the client to undergo to realize their vision. The therapist will seize on any successes the client experiences, to encourage them to build on their strengths rather than dwell on their problems or limitations.

How can I tell if a therapist is right for me?
Therapists in Mercer Island are able to work with a wide range of issues and communities, including the BIPOC community in Mercer Island. They offer in person sessions as well as Teletherapy in Mercer Island
