By listening to the deep wisdom of our bodies, we begin to shift from rigid expectations and unconscious behaviors to an expanded sense of our true essence.

Psychotherapy
My practice helps heal past traumas, address current destructive habits, and ease life transitions. By bringing kind attention and respect to our body’s habitual responses and parts of ourselves that have been hidden away, we begin to connect with a deeper understanding of who we are as individuals. Hakomi is a form of psychotherapy that provides a non-judgmental stance of guided self-discovery. We shift from everyday conversation to kind observation of the present moment. As opposed to talking about our emotions, thoughts, and physical experiences, we bring kind attention to the habitual patterns in your body and emotional reactions and even thinking patterns that are based on unconscious beliefs and habits. By slowing down the conversation and refocusing our attention to guided self-study Hakomi supports you in discovering hidden responses and stuck patterns of reactivity. My practice offers kind experiments to discover possibilities of choice and freedom from these constricting views and habits. Call or email for an appointment: 206-723-3402 or kelly@kellylross.com

Sex Therapy
By exploring the mystery of the erotic, we uncover and claim our full aliveness and humanity. Through the lens of sexuality, I will help you develop appreciation and curiosity for your life rather than shame and retreat. I specialize in the area of sexual health for individuals. As a Nationally certified Sex Therapist through the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors & Therapists (AASECT), I am able to help clients explore the sexual issues that have been affecting their current relationships and limiting their self-esteem and pleasure of life.

Clinicians
Just as healing requires a holistic approach, I view psychotherapy through a systemic lens and enjoy the strength of addressing issues with a team approach. I am a licensed mental health counselor (LMHC) in Washington state as well a nationally certified Sex Therapist, clinical member, and Sex Therapist “Supervisor in Training” with the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT-2004), and a certified Hakomi Therapist through the Seattle Hakomi Education Network (SHEN-2012). I have worked in the field of sexual health for over 20 years. First while a Parole Officer and Training Coordinator for the State of Washington as well as a volunteer outreach worker for the N.W. AIDS. It was during this time that I realized my passion for sexual health and counseling could be combined to help people recover their lives and to increase their well-being. I received my M.A. in Systems Counseling from the Leadership Institute of Seattle (LIOS) at Bastyr University. My internship was at Seattle Counseling Services for Sexual Minorities (now called Seattle Counseling Services) in Seattle, and my externship was at Presbyterian Counseling Services. My training is primarily in mindfulness based body centered (somatic) psychotherapy and family systems therapy. I was on the faculty of LIOS and Bastyr University teaching Counseling, Human Sexuality and Sex Therapy in the Psychology department and medical school (2005-2009). I am a member of the American Mental Health Counselors Association (AMHCA) and the Washington Mental Health Counselors Association (WMHCA), as well as a Clinical member and Supervisor in Training for AASECT and assistant with SHEN as a Teacher in Training. I am also on the advisory counsel for the Seattle Institute of Sex Therapists Educators and Researchers (SISTER).
