I see adults regardless of size, gender, sex, race, ethnicity, ability, religion who feel like a stranger within their own body, mind, and spirit. This may be due to loss of faith (deconstruction), identity work, existential questions, relational issues, chronic self neglect, disordered eating, trauma. Those who are hungering to be more attuned and embodied in their emotions, values, sense of worthiness but somewhere got lost along the way and are ready to find home again.

I practice from a relational, attachment-based lens and prioritize your holistic well-being.
Welcome! I’m glad you’re here. I enjoy working with individuals on mind/body integration, meaning that you know in your mind how you want to feel, but you don’t yet feel it in your body. We will work together to help you integrate by approaching your unique needs and goals through understanding your story, working with your strengths, and building your inner resources to tend to yourself when challenges arise. This may involve incorporating EMDR, mindfulness practices, visualizations, or inner parts awareness into sessions.

I have a passion to work with adults through their trauma, especially those with a military background, first responders, and their families. It is my passion to walk alongside people as they engage in their story and their own healing. The journey that people find themselves on is one worth exploring and diving into. Your story matters, and I believe has purpose and meaning.

Whether you’re looking to heal wounds, understand your role in the world, or develop practices to support a lifetime of wellbeing, I offer a non-judgemental space to explore what it means to be you in a complex world. We will not only examine the broader systems and dynamics that have informed your life story, but work together to explore your sense of self, obtain clarity about how you got here, and develop a pathway to healing and acceptance. Drawing from research on neuroscience and mindfulness, I will help you increase attunement with your body and its unique safety signals.

In my training and career, I specialized in treating children with behavioral difficulties and adults suffering from anxiety, depression and stress. In working with children, my approach includes collaboratively working with the child and their family through their presenting issues and helping institute sustainable changes to foster individual growth in the child and relational growth in the family. This often includes psycho-education and coaching for parents in addition to individual therapy for the child. In working with adults I utilize a range of methods from existential to behavioral depending on the specific needs of the individual.

Do you feel stuck in repeating patterns? Do you feel exhausted trying to keep up with the latest self-help solutions that leave you feeling the same way no matter how hard you try? You’re not alone. These challenges are often connected to what has happened to you, not who you are. Often painful events can shape the way we view ourselves and others. Freedom from these patterns is possible. No matter what you have gone through in your life, you hold a unique ability to heal. I offer couples therapy, and an effective individual therapy called EMDR.

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.

Resilience: “The capacity of a person to maintain their core purpose and integrity in the face of dramatically changed circumstances.” Resilience, at its core, relates to the process of adapting to challenging circumstances. Adaptation does not necessarily mean letting go of past experiences, challenges, or losses, but rather the act of learning to live with pain in a manner that allows you to survive. In seeking support, you are doing just that. Welcome to Resilience Counseling, PLLC.

"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.

In holding the Eastern-based philosophy that sees every human as inherently whole and brilliantly sane, I believe that every pain we carry--at its source--shares the wisdom of how to heal it. Supporting you in connecting more directly to your experience, to inhabit your body, and compassionately navigate the sometimes complex layers of this space can allow for reintegration of parts of yourself you may have lost connection to. In reconciliation of one's whole being--there is often a naming and reclaiming of our lived experience that needs to happen for greater alignment to occur within ourselves and within our relationships.

Not accepting new clients and taking a leave of absence starting October 1, 2022. You find yourself craving structure, but resenting it. You see deadlines as "now, or not now." You have trouble starting or trouble stopping what you're doing. If these contradictions feel familiar to you, and you have (or suspect you have) ADHD, I can help you. I invite you to bring your strengths and motivation to create change in your life to help with ADHD. I work best with adults living with this neurodivergence, rather than those coping with severe mental illness. I offer tele-therapy (video-conferencing) for clients throughout Washington state.

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, it might be useful to first learn more about therapy types and modalities.
How to find a therapist in Bellingham?
When looking to find a therapist, it is certainly important to consider 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.
