My Approach

My name is Kelli Gordon and I am a Seattle based licensed mental health counselor associate (MA, LMHCA). I work with people of all ages, individually, as couples, as families, as polycules, and in small groups. As a therapist, my ultimate goal is to honor your sovereignty and autonomy while helping you come into more intimate and intentional relationship with your experiences and decisions so that you can suffer less and enjoy life more. My practice is LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC friendly, body positive, sex positive, poly friendly, and kink friendly. I am a proponent of radical self-acceptance in the healing process. I am committed to social justice and anti-oppression work, which extends to my work with clients.

The most important factors in the success of therapy are the quality of relationship between the therapist and client and the client's motivation to do the work. I strive to facilitate your healing journey by creating a comfortable and safe environment where you can be your whole true self without fear of judgement or rejection. If after our first session, you do not feel comfortable with me, I can suggest referrals so that you are supported in finding your best therapeutic fit.

I am currently accepting new clients. You are welcome to schedule your first session using my online booking tool, or if you'd rather check in with me first, you are welcome to text or email me at 206-910-4704 or wildwoodhealingessentials@gmail.com. Walk and Talk sessions available upon request at Golden Gardens, Discovery Park, and Greenlake Park, rain or shine. In-state phone and video sessions are also available upon request.
