SERVICES

No two people are the same. That’s why my approach is highly-personalized and refined to fit the exact needs of my clients. Together we will come up with a treatment plan to address your areas of concern. I am trained, specialized, and offer a variety of modalities to meet my clients' unique needs and to support women on their journeys. I am passionate about empowering women not only to explore "what's wrong," but to reclaim their voices, their imaginations, their sense of self, healthy boundaries, and to develop nourishing practices that align with their values and belief systems as opposed to the belief systems of others.

PSYCHOTHERAPY

Feeling tired, overwhelmed, anxious, sad, the world as we know it is moving at such a fast pace. We are not meant to live in survivavl mode. I believe everyone has a bit of healing to do. I utilize compassionate inquiry to help you explore & identify adverse events during your life course which may be impacting your nervous system and the ways in which you relate to yourself, others, and the world around you. Psychotherapy can help create meaning, increase awareness, replace old beliefs, narratives that no longer serve you, create new narratives, assist in developing new coping and regulation skills, along with strategies to discharge stress from the body. Cultivating a sense of safety, belonging, curiosity, imagination, interest, engagement, life purpose, future orientations, and self compassion are touchstones to my practice.

SOMATIC APPROACHES & EXPERENTIAL APPROACHES

Tap into your body's wisdom. Our bodies do not just tell stories, they tell histories. Memories, trauma, incomplete stress cycles can be trapped in the body. We often times do not have language for it, we oftentimes may not remember. Research has shown, without interventions that incorporate body based approaches, such as somatic, movement, touch, sensory, many therapeutic interventions are limited. We cannot think our way out of a "trigger," a stress response. Somatic approaches – body based approaches such as yoga, sensory art based approaches and other embodied, experiential practices – can facilitate reprocessing, somatic stress release, create room for exploration, befriending your body and nervous system, provide a plethora of tools, and enhance quality of life.

TESTIMONIALS

"I never thought I would be where I am now. I was in such a dark hole when we first started. Everything felt so overwhelming, so utterly devestating. In our work together, I felt seen, heard, challenged while also uniquely empowered. I am so grateful. All of these tools, growing awareness, I am in awe of the changes I have made, the hope I feel, what comes next." C

"I've had lots of therapists. You have a powerful model, throwing seeds. My mental health and physical health are closely tied. I was able to put effort towards that, definitely hit milestones. One of the big things, was when you prepped me for a trip. Life changing. Be intentional, notice things, mostly been able to to control my thoughts better, just the awareness that I can change my state. Catching, noticing then releasing, it's been pretty cool, the growing awareness. I'm seeing that I can make changes really quickly and not get caught in the loop." M

"It's amazing to think back, I felt so lost, good to reflect on where I was and see how far I've come, so when I feel hopeless or down again, to remember it's not always going to be this way. I am so grateful, it was huge, lots of change, transformation. Therapy has helped a lot, continued sessions over time has helped me feel more comfortable, helped me overall be more comfortable in my own skin, and it has helped me create a life that is more aligned with what I want. Thank you so much for everything." S

MY STORY

kathryn-sonja-messenger.jpg

I am eclectic, creative, person-centered, solution-focused, strength-based, and a dedicated clinician, passionate about my work, women's health, and healing. I love to learn.


My journey informs my approach and the two cannot be seperated. I am and have been many women. I have started over again and again. I have reimagined my life, and have intricately weaved rich tapestries. My life experiences have allowed me to understand the varying nuances, complexities, individually, collectively, and the systems that maintain and perpetuate trauma and other physical and mental health realted issues. This has gifted me the ability to meet each client where they are, in an authentic, person centered manner. I see and feel with people. I have deep seated empathy, healthy boundaries, and I am very comfortable holding a vast container. 


Healing is a journey of creating meaning, integration of past, current, experiences & memories, whilst cultivating your dreams and aspirations. I am very flexible in my approach. I often utilize humor, swearing (if not offended), and use collaboration and choice points as the basis of my therapeutic interactions. You are the expert in your experience and it is my goal to support and ally with you. I am a Seed Planter & Hope Peddler even when things may feel overwhelming, dark, or challenging. I will help you remember your light, your ancestral wisdom.

I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker Associate in the state of Washington (SC-60857294). I have a Master’s in Social Work from Seattle University, and a Bachelor’s in Psychology from Eastern Washington University, Summa Cum Laude. For the past several years, I have had direct experiences providing psychotherapy in my private practice, previously in community mental health settings, working in an inpatient psychiatric hospital as well as an outpatient partial hospitalization programs.

Outside of the office I actively sing, enjoy expressive arts, live music, the outdoors, have quite the menagerie of outdoor animals who visit with me, and I love traveling with no agenda. I am an activist, intersectional feminist, and I proudly ally with community members for inclusive, social change. Heartspace. 

I look forward to working with you.

INDIVIDUAL PSYCHOTHERAPY

53 minute session: $160

​90-120 minute session $240-$320

Most individuals prefer to meet every week or every other week. The length of individual therapy, session time, varies greatly depending on your needs, desires and the nature of what brings you to therapy. Many clients feel they successfully achieve their goals within a 53 minute session, within a month or two, while others feel that longer sessions and ongoing supportive therapy as beneficial.

I accept credit cards.  All fees are due on the date of service. I have a limited number of reduced cost sessions for people that are experiencing financial hardships.  I also offer a student rate for individuals attending college or graduate school. Please contact me and we will discuss this further.

INSURANCE

Out-of-Network
I am not currently accepting insurance.  Many of my clients are able to get partial compensation for sessions by using their out-of-network coverage.  I can provide a Super Bill (invoice) which contains all the information your insurance company will need to do this.  Please check with your insurance provider to see if you have out-of-network coverage and at what rate.  Also note that submission for reimbursement is done by the client.
