What our clients say:
"I have had the pleasure of Kelsey treating my adopted daughter for the past 5 years. Kelsey took a little girl who was acting inappropriately in situations to a little girl that acts appropriately. Kelsey has been able to help her open up and become assertive for herself. She has not only been a help in my daughter's treatment but has assisted the entire family in dealing with difficult behaviors. I strongly recommend Kelsey for any child."

“Olya has inspired me to positively improving my life. She is a fantastic listener and her manner gives me comfort and the feeling that I can tell her anything. Never feeling judged! She has helped me to confront smoldering issues of my past and our excellent discussions give me much food for thought. She has helped guide me through self-discovery; however, the distinct quality that separates her from others is her understanding that no two people or two problems are ever the same nor can be treated the same. Olya has helped me devise problem-solving methods that work with my individual life and lifestyle and has helped guide me to be the person I want and aspire to be. Three words I would use to describe her are passionate, encouraging and objective.”

“Anjelika, We want to express enormous gratitude to you for helping us heal and restore our relationship. You were our last resort. We decided to try marriage therapy before getting a divorce. We loved each other but we could not get along. We were constantly arguing and could not agree on anything. From the very first session we felt comfortable and safe to share with you our feelings. We both felt heard and understood by you, and it gave us hope. At first we thought that we would be coming to see you for at least two years, considering the amount of problems we had. When you showed us how to communicate with each other from our heart and not anger, we were able to apply the skills to resolve our marital problems on our own only after eight sessions. We are doing great. Thank you.”
– Couple with two children
"Kelsey is the best person to talk to when you're having a bad day or your thoughts are not clear. She is the one who will be there for you every step of the way. Going to her has been a blessing. She is the most amazing person I have ever met."
- Female client (32 yrs old), Washington
“Counseling with Olya helped me to figure out what to do with my life. Olya listened to what I had to say and it was really helpful (instead of someone just ignoring what I think). I feel happier now.”
– C. (16 y.o.) Battle Ground, WA
“Anjelika, Thank you! We are doing really well. We have been doing so much talking and ‘mirroring’ and listening. I so appreciate your guidance during this process. This time and this process have given us the ‘permission’ if you will to be so open and honest. It has been really exciting. So much love and ‘rawness’. It is as if we have never given ourselves the permission to have this kind of relationship. I am feeling so hopeful and the healing is amazing.”

"Kelsey made things so simple & easy for me. I never had to worry if I was on track with what I was supposed to be doing. She showed me respect and I felt her and I were on the same team facing my situation together."
- Male client (21 yrs old), Washington
“Olya is professional, intuitive, nonjudgmental, and above all, caring. Her suggestions and help has made an enormous difference to each member of my family. She’s equally amazing with my kids and with myself and husband. I would highly recommend her to any family that is seeking help.”
– Mother of N. (12 y.o.) Camas, WA
"We really like Kelsey. We just cannot believe how she explains to us exactly the emotions we are going through. We are finding great benefit from her service.”
- Grandmother & 16 yr old teen, Washington
“We took our teenage daughter to see Olya for counseling services and found our experience to be a very good one. I would have no hesitation in recommending Olya’s counseling services for your teen. She is compassionate and really seems to understand what teenagers are going through and cares about them and their problems. Our family was in a desperate situation and Olya helped to diffuse that and give all of us tools to use to bring our family closer together. Life with a teenager is challenging at times, and to have someone like Olya to go to for help is very reassuring. Thank you Olya for all of your help!! Things are on a good path now.”
– Mother of K. (15 y.o.) Vancouver, WA
“Learning to be assertive was really helpful in counseling. Olya taught me to talk about my feelings without being rude. She gave me confidence. She made it easy to trust her and it helped me to open up about my problems. She kept everything confidential.”
