Kelly Bennett-Aurdahl

Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker (LICSW)

(206) 335-3011

My specialty and focus is working with adults on issues such as anxiety, depression, grief and loss, trauma, behavior challenges, and relationships. I combine traditional mental health modalities with non-traditional mental health approaches. This means that sometimes talk therapy is suggested, other times non-traditional approaches to mental health such as Reiki, culturally based therapies, or relaxation and stress release therapies. Reiki is an alternative and complimentary healing method. Reiki is an ancient laying-on of hands healing technique that uses the life force energy to heal, balancing the subtle energies within our bodies. Reiki addresses physical, emotional, mental and spiritual imbalances.

I am an Advanced Certified Heart Centered Hypnotherapist (ACHt). Heart Centered Hypnotherapy® combines hypnotherapy with developmental, behavioral, and humanistic (gestalt; transactional analysis) psychologies as a powerful way to assist people in accessing the source of problems, helping them to reconnect with dissociated emotions and disowned parts of themselves. In trance, clients directly access the body's memories and associations, re-experiencing then reframing prenatal, perinatal, and childhood events. The session ends with self-acceptance and identification with the most loving part of oneself. The corrective experience for the client includes a heart-centered connection and, at times, a personal transformative experience of great clarity.
