I have specialized experience working with adolescents and couples, multiple partners, and families within the LGBTQIA + community.
Hello, thank you for visiting this page! I'm Shannon Maricielo, a Licensed Marriage and Family Associate (LFMTA) in Washington state. I've been interested in human behavior, relationships, and what makes people 'tick' my entire life. Human beings fascinate, inspire, and sometimes disappoint and frighten me. Mostly, I find myself in awe of people's endless complexity and beauty. I thoroughly enjoy working with people therapeutically and am humbled by the privilege of being allowed to walk side by side others as they navigate some of their most challenging life and relationship experiences.

In my practice, I blend NARM with other mindfulness-based methods to help clients gently access and heal unresolved issues in order to decrease unnecessary suffering in their lives. My practice is ideal for clients who are curious about expanding their capacity for intimacy in their relationships and creating greater joy and satisfaction in their lives. I enjoy working with clients who are curious about and engaged in their own healing process, and who are committed to compassion and nonviolence in their relationships with others and with themselves. I welcome adults, adolescents, couples, and clients identified as LGBTQ .

I believe strongly that the therapeutic relationship is paramount in attaining benefit from psychotherapy. Feeling safe, validated, and heard are incredibly important. A sense of trust, as well as having a supportive, and open environment are foundational in beginning the process of unpacking, sorting, and addressing what has brought you to this moment. Essentially, your connection with your therapist matters. My approach is person-centered, with hopes of being able to meet you where you are, with a therapeutic orientation that is intuitive in nature.

Even though it may not seem like it, often times our symptoms are messengers from a deep part of our own psyche, sent to inform us that we need to find new ways of relating to ourselves and those around us in order to reach our next level of growth. My philosophy is one of wholeness; our bodies, emotions, thoughts, and background work in unison to inform our present experience. It is my goal to help you find more flexibility within your experience, so that you can move towards the life that you truly want to be living.

I help with severe grief and PTSD, anxiety, and depression. With grief, I do a grief snow globe, which is a metaphor for the person you lost. It helps you put the loss behind you so you can move along with your life. For PTSD, I use EMDR, which is effective for anxiety and trauma. The goal is to help you be more functional in your life.

I AM NOT CURRENTLY ACCEPTING NEW CLIENTS. Why get therapy? It's hard work and involves change. But for most people, it's worth it. Therapy is taking care of and investing in yourself. It means you are ready to look at the parts of your life that are not working well-the parts that are hurt, broken or in pain. As your therapist, I will listen with empathy and compassion. Together, we will establish goals and focus on what might make your life better by helping you build resilience and develop coping skills. Through this work, you can learn to be in healthy relationships with others and ultimately with yourself.

Each of us has a wealth of wisdom within us, but circumstances sometimes prevent us from accessing our own innate wisdom. Therapy is a process of discovery and a way to receive assistance in accessing your own deep wisdom. My role as your therapist is to walk beside you on this journey and to help you make the most of your unique inner wisdom through talking, reflecting, learning, and discovering your own inner strength, resiliency, and ability to navigate life's challenges successfully.

I have space for one new client at this time. I'm a good fit for clients who want to explore their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and seek to take personal responsibility around how they show up in their life and relationships. Doing inner transformational work can feel messy and unpleasant at times, and I will do my best to support you with respect and honesty in this process. We can explore your past and present experiences at a pace that works for you so that you can build clarity and resilience. If you'd like to send me a message, please also include your insurance and schedule availability.

If you are struggling with trauma, dysphoria, anxiety, or life in general, I want to help you feel better. I believe you can find the calm, healing, clarity, and joy you seek. I work predominately with adult and adolescent clients who experience trauma and PTSD (including C-PTSD), gender dysphoria, depression, self-harm, and anxiety and adjustment disorders. I'm particularly passionate about unsticking negative message received in childhood and accompanying folx on their gender journey. I have years of experience supporting folx through gender transition and providing support to their loved ones.

What if you could make your life the way you want it to be? Would you like to overcome loneliness, self-doubt, anxiety, fear of failure, hopelessness, relationship difficulties? Many times our discontent in the present is tethered to traumatic events in our past. If you suffered trauma as a child or as an adult, chances are you have adapted and survived but you may not be currently thriving. The deeper the wounding, the more profound the negative impacts can be in your present life. The miracle of therapy offers you the power to rewrite your past and reprogram your future.

What type of Poulsbo 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 Poulsbo?
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.
