Ashlee Knight Counseling, LMHCA

Mental Health Counseling

It can be so hard to reach out for help, to admit you can't do it alone, but you've got this. To me, therapy is a relationship, a space, an hour to explore and try on your true self, to give yourself permission to be a messy human being, to let yourself be seen by another person and accepted as you are, and to dare to imagine what it would be like to find healing and take up space in the world – more fully alive.

A great deal of our pain as humans stems from strained, harmful, and ruptured relationships with others, and also with ourselves – and most of the rest of our pain comes from the unhelpful and unsustainable ways we try to cope with that pain. We often vacillate between ignoring and attempting to problem-solve this pain away, but years pass and we never get anywhere – I know this because I’ve tried it too.

The only thing that can even touch that old relational pain is practicing new ways of relating, and therapy is an ideal place for this kind of practice. Where perhaps you were once silent, therapy becomes the place to begin voicing unspeakable truths; where perhaps you were once terrified of conflict, therapy becomes a safe place to bring your anger; where perhaps you often find yourself sabotaging good things out of a deep belief that you don’t deserve them, therapy becomes a relationship that will not be so easily ruined but rather stays steady long enough to lead finally to growth instead of repetition.

I also believe in an integrative and holistic approach; I believe deeply in the mind-body connection. I have seen time and again that the body is key to accessing that which we don’t have words for, and in that way it is essential to healing. I would encourage any of my clients to collaborate with other providers and specialists so that the entire self is engaged in the therapeutic process.

Melissa Myers

Mental Health Counseling

Welcome to my practice. 

It is my passion to blend ancient philosophies of yoga and wellness with modern anatomy, neurobiology, and trauma research. As we journey thorough life, our life imprints upon us. This happens naturally within the body via the senses and encodes into the body's memory, the nervous system. This sometimes creates habitual holding patterns in the body or mind and/or distorted views of reality based of prior experiences; especially if they were overwhelming, scary, or unpleasant. This is a normal reaction to an abnormal situation. By observing the stories we are telling ourselves to be true, we can create change in how we perceive the world around us.

Recently, the #metoo movement has brought light on the darkness of sexual assault in this world. Anxiety, depression, isolation, fearfulness, and pain are just a few associated symptoms. Our memories live in our mind, as well as the body. Sometimes, talk therapy alone is not enough. If this you, you do not need to face this alone. Along with psychotherapy, I off therapeutic yoga. Modern research has shown a direct link to the clinical effectiveness of incorporating mindfulness and yoga within a therapeutic framework. This unique approach can help decrease chronic pain, PTSD symptoms, and rebalance the nervous system.

I am a licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate in the state of Washington and received my Master of the Arts degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Antioch University here in Seattle. Inspired by the depth of clinical research and my own curiosity, in 2015 I completed my yoga teacher training through a Yoga Alliance approved school and have since been certified in Yin and Restorative yoga. 

Bhramari Seattle provides compassionate professional care to those seeking support, encouragement, and healing with life's complications. Are you ready to share your story?

Kanna Toguchi

Thai Yoga Bodywork

Kanna Toguchi turned to the healing arts when she found herself struggling intensely in life, disconnected with a plethora of health challenges. Through her personal healing journey, she discovered powerful tools that enabled her to reclaim her sense of Self and embrace the samskaras as gifts to align her Heart and Mind. As a heart centered practitioner with over 8 years of experience as a bodyworker & energy healer, Kanna utilizes her IMT Training (Integrated Movement Therapy, a form of holistic therapy) to serve as the foundation of her practice. IMT merges yogic philosophy, movement and spiritual framework with cognitive behavioral therapy, that views each person as complete and whole. As a certified Samarya yoga teacher, former athlete and dancer, her love for intuitive movement and spirituality deeply informs her work. It is her intention to be a guide in a process which embraces the uniqueness of each individual; offering a space for the spheres of the mind, body and spirit to coalesce and communicate harmoniously. She is nourished from sharing her passions and the symbiotic relationship that is generated with her clients; thus empowering people with tools to awaken to their own Truth and Divinity. Above all, it is Kanna's intention to impart the great importance of Self Love and the innate capacity of the body to heal, restore and renew itself. She is honored to co-create with you and bear witness to your unfolding.

Rachel Wallerstedt

Intuitive Development guide

Rachel is an Intuitive Development Guide based in North Seattle. Intuition is a way to describe the mind’s ability to solve problems and express creativity without conscious planning. Intuitive development is the process of learning to strengthen our intuition in order to make wise choices, share our gifts with others, and find inner peace. It’s an excellent form of self-care for anxious minds and curious hearts alike. During intuitive development sessions, we use metaphysical tools such as Tarot cards, astrology, and manifestation visualization to guide you on your personal growth adventure.

Rachel has lived most of her life as a practicing witch, focusing on the healing and divinatory aspects of the craft. She is inspired by the spiritual teachings of Wicca, Buddhism, and Mediterranean folk traditions. When she is not performing rituals, Rachel writes about spirituality and its role in our changing world. She is the founder of Storytime Psychic Alliance, a community for people interested in metaphysical and Earth-based spirituality. You can find metaphysical tutorials from Storytime Psychic Alliance on YouTube. 

Rachel lives in Greenwood with her husband and their cat, Lady Hrothgar.

Jennifer is a private yoga teacher, Thai yoga bodyworker, loving mama, recovering perfectionist and perpetual student who’s passionate about supporting yoga practitioners in finding balance and prioritizing their wellbeing.

Jennifer earned her 200-hour hatha yoga teaching certification at 8 Limbs Yoga Centers on Capitol Hill and has since gone on to deepen her studies in restorative yoga, yin yoga, yoga nidra and, most recently, traditional Thai yoga bodywork.
