Olya Pavlishina, LMFT
I am passionate about my work as a therapist. Much of my life is spent thinking, learning and praying about how people can connect on a deeper level, heal from their deepest problems, and live out their authentic purpose in life.
My persistent curiosity about how to help people live more fulfilling lives has led me to earn a Master’s degree from George Fox University in Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a WA state licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LF00002109).
I have attended numerous workshops and conferences and have been trained in EMDR therapy that I find helpful with clients who experience anxiety or have a history of trauma. EMDR has been clinically proven to help people resolve the emotional and physical impacts of disturbing life experiences.
While all my schooling and training has been of great use, it is my clients who have been my best teachers. It’s my thousands of hours with clients (since 2000) that help me to continue to master my skills as a therapist and be effective with you.
Above and beyond my education and years of clinical hours, I have a great deal of life I have experienced. I have been through some very difficult times. I know how it feels to be there, how it feels to work through struggles, and how great it feels to move beyond an issue!
