I am a compassion focused LPC. I work with people of all ages and diverse backgrounds who struggle with a variety of problems. I make sure to provide a safe, calm, non-judgemental environment to help you navigate your life’s journey.
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.
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 believe that while no life is without some measure of pain or struggle; therapy can be a transformative, healing process which opens the door to a more fulfilling relationship with yourself and others.
I enjoy working collaboratively with people experiencing grief from a variety of life circumstances; death of a person or pet, changed/estranged relationships, navigating chronic and/or terminal illness, traumatic incidents and more.
