It's so frustrating to want change and feel stuck. I want you to know there IS a way to change the things you want to change. There is a way to find yourself, trust yourself and care for yourself. Therapy is an opportunity to heal painful wounds and discover why you face the same challenges over and over. No matter the presenting concern: anxiety, depression, loss, or any life transition (major or minor), therapy can be an intensely rewarding and life altering process.

I chose to name my therapy practice, Weeds to Wishes Counseling, because I see counseling as a way to shift your perspective. I was inspired by the quote, "When you look at a field of dandelions, you can either see a hundred weeds or a hundred wishes". In working with each individual, I hope to give you new ways to change your perspective, see the world differently, heal and begin to see more wishes than weeds.

I specialize in working with adolescents and adults aged 16-45 as I love working with people who are stepping into their personal power, developing identity, and establishing relationships and intimacy with others. I also enjoy helping clients transmute their anxiety and release old family patterns that are no longer serving them. My attitude is warm, positive, and nonjudgmental. I offer an environment where you can truly be seen; I promise empathy and presence. I recognize that you wish to be loved, hope to belong, be understood, and search for value in your life. I invite you to have hope and courage, be authentic and open.

I am a licensed psychologist with over ten years of experience working collaboratively with individuals, couples and families as they've navigated difficult life passages. I've worked in numerous settings: an inpatient psychiatric unit, outpatient counseling center, hospice, integrated primary care, mobile therapy (patient homes & schools) as well as in transitional housing for those fleeing domestic violence. These experiences have inspired passion for the therapeutic process and that no person journey alone. That said, I believe healing is a choice to journey and that every journey is as unique as the person taking it.

The search for a therapeutic relationship founded on trust, compassion and understanding driven by your needs, goals and dreams is one of the most important decisions you will make. It takes a tremendous amount of courage and strength, built on the foundation of hope to begin the journey of finding ourselves. As both a Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Substance Use Disorder Professional I believe we all have a unique story to share with the world. Our knowledge of ourselves; spiritually,mentally and physically drives our choices and is the catalyst for change in that narrative.

The quality of our personal relationships is one of the most important things in life. Relationships of all types--romantic, parental, friends, co-workers, etc.-- have the capacity for both tremendous joy and tremendous aggravation and heartache. My speciality is working with couples to help improve romantic relationships. Humans were created to be in relationship with one another and whether I am working with an individual, a couple or a larger family unit, the client's ability to maintain healthy relationships with family and loved ones is a primary focus.

Your best self feels just out of reach...what happened to me? Why am I so stuck? Anxiety, depression, grief, or a general feeling of ungrounded self is a common experience as we move through the complexities of life. We watch patterns repeat and often feel powerless in the process. We find ourselves in systems or roles that no long serve our highest selves. Present or past experiences might keep you from living life in a way that feels physically healthy, connected to others, and with purpose. You are ready to live in stronger connection with yourself and the people around you. You are courageous and moving towards growth.

There are times in life when we find ourselves wondering what we can do to handle certain challenges. Sometimes, a bit of help is needed to move on from difficulties, transitions, relational issues, and unexpected events of our lives that challenge us. It is possible to find opportunity and healing where none was thought to exist before. We can gain new insights, and grow from our experiences. Jupe can be helpful as you explore and accept what is and eventually grow and heal in your life. There are always choices, and always room to grow, heal and change.

"Vulnerability sounds like truth and feels like courage. It's not always comfortable, but it's never weakness."--Brene Brown. Hi, I'm Lydia and I utilize a solution focused, mindfulness based approach to aid clients in exploring their authentic selves and behavioral patterns. 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.

Living with anxiety is hard, and chances are you’ve really tried to manage it on your own. Maybe you have a general sense of worry all the time, or maybe there's something specific that brings it on. Either way, you want to feel better. Ignoring it and pretending to be fine isn't working for you anymore. On top of the exhaustion and overwhelm, you might worry there's something wrong with you. At this point, your anxiety is giving you anxiety! What if you felt in control of your anxiety? What if you were your own biggest cheerleader rather than worst critic? What if you could live a full, bright life without anxiety holding you back?

What type of Bellingham mental health professional is right for me?
While most types of therapy have a lot in common, they also fall into clusters that share core features, such as cognitive therapies or psychodynamic approaches. It is important to seek someone who practices evidence-based therapy, meaning one or more forms of treatment that have been scientifically evaluated and tested, and demonstrate consistent improvement for a majority of patients.

If you are unsure about choosing the right therapist or psychologist, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.

How to find a therapist or counselor in Bellingham?
When looking to find a therapist, start by considering training and credentials. Studies also indicate that the therapeutic alliance, or the relationship the client develops with the therapist, is an important factor in their ability to work together to achieve the client’s goals.

What method of therapy is right for me?
When it comes to treatment methods, there's no 'right way.’ Each method of therapy can be beneficial for a variety of issues. Finding a psychologist or therapist who is a good fit for you is the most important step to discovering what type of therapy, or combination of therapeutic approaches, will meet your individual needs. Learn what to expect from different types of therapy and how they work.

How to use my insurance?
Understanding cost and insurance coverage is an important concern for many people. With some basic research and conversations with prospective therapists, you should be able to have a good understanding of the best way to afford therapy.
