Mary Day, LMHC
We often don’t choose the steps of our journey, but I believe that our truth is ours to discover. Therapy can give us the insight and agency to write our own stories, and discovering compassion is key.
My approach to therapy is client-centered, and I will work with you to establish an open, respectful collaboration to attain your goals. I attended Central Washington University and have a bachelor’s degree in elementary and special education, and a master’s degree in counseling psychology. I have been fortunate in serving a diverse group of clients in an Ellensburg community mental health setting for over twenty years. People of all backgrounds and cultures are welcome, including POC and LGBTQIA+; I work with clients aged 16 years and older.
I use multiple evidence-based therapies including a range of cognitive behavioral therapies to address anxiety, depression, OCD, and mood disorders. My specialty is trauma recovery and I have extensive experience and advanced training in several approaches including EMDR, Cognitive Processing Therapy, TF-CBT, Ego State and Attachment-Focused Trauma therapy.
“Your true self is right there, buried under cultural conditioning, other people’s opinions, and inaccurate conclusions you drew as a kid that became your beliefs about who you are. “Finding yourself” is actually returning to yourself. An unlearning, an excavation, a remembering who you were before the world got its hands on you.” ~ Emily McDowell
