Kelcie Cannon’s Therapist Disclosure Statement <<< (Clickable)

In my practice, I adhere to a humanistic philosophy, valuing the uniqueness and inherent worth of each individual. I believe in creating a safe and non-judgmental space where you can explore your thoughts, feelings, and experiences freely. I believe everyone is capable and deserving of healing, and I enjoy being able to join you in that process.

In my practice, I strive for an integrative approach to best serve the unique needs of every individual. With that said, my practice is guided strongly by systems theory, attachment theory, and somatic experiencing. Additionally, I work through a trauma-informed lens, recognizing the prevalence and impact of trauma on one’s emotional well-being.

I am Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate, as well as a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in the state of Washington. I received my Masters of Arts in Counseling Psychology from National University. I received my Bachelors of Arts in Psychology from the University of California, Santa Barbara.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my partner, my cat, my family, and friends. My hobbies include backpacking, camping, gardening, and reading. I absolutely love a good road trip, especially when the destination takes me to the mountains.

Q&A with Kelcie

1.) Some therapists are more comfortable addressing the immediate problem, while others want to focus on the deeper issue. Which are you?

I am comfortable addressing both the immediate concern and delving into the deeper issues. I will always ask about your comfort level and preference. There is space for both, and healing can happen through tackling immediate concerns and exploring deeper issues.

2.) Do you tend to lead the session, or follow my lead?

I believe you are the expert of your life and I want you to feel empowered to take the lead. As we work together, I welcome discussions on the structure of therapy. I will gladly take on the lead when deemed appropriate or most helpful for you.

3.) What are your strengths as a therapist?

I believe some of my biggest strengths as a therapist are that I am genuine, gently curious, and highly compassionate. I believe everyone is both capable of healing and deserving of healing.

4.) If you had one superpower, what would it be and why?

Tough to pick just one! I would love the ability to talk to animals. I would also love the ability to withstand extreme temps, to further explore the most remote areas of our planet (and to never be cold again!).

5.) What makes you laugh?

Videos of my cat, Juju!

6.) Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive?

Jane Goodall, Esther Perel, and both of my grandmas, who I miss dearly!
