Founder and Director of OptimalLife Wellness Center in Bellevue, Washington since 2013. I am a marriage and family therapist specializing in trauma recovery, PTSD, and anxiety using a mind-body approach to healing and empowerment.
I was born in Spain and moved to the states as a child. Have a B.A. from American University in D.C. and an M.S. in applied psych/mental health counseling from Lynn U. I am trilingual (Spanish, French and English.)
Kathryn Parke, LCSW-C is an EMDR trained trauma and anxiety therapist in Baltimore, MD. She works with adults and older adults, specializes in C-PTSD and is also trained in CBT and psychodynamic therapy.
I have spent my career as a trauma therapist offering unconditional kindness and deep care. My work is relational and incorporates mindfulness, self compassion and somatic experiencing. I am also certified as a perinatal mental health specialist.
My main goal in a therapy session is to let you be heard, and to get to the bottom of what’s going on. I specialize in treating trauma with EMDR therapy. I focus on your strengths, and support curiosity and self compassion.
I am an EMDR-trained therapist who helps clients explore how their nervous system has adapted to stress and trauma over their life span. My background is in trauma-sensitive yoga. I am pursuing training in Internal Family Systems Therapy and EFIT.
