I’m Raelynn, a licensed clinical professional counselor, registered supervisor, and former school counselor. I have worked as a private practice therapist since 2010 specializing in the treatment of trauma and anxiety disorders.

In my first career, I was an elementary school teacher and health educator. I hold an MA in counseling from Boise State University with extensive post graduate training in EMDR and other evidence based treatments.

My manner is calm and supportive, but I’m not afraid to deliver a thoughtful challenge when called for. I use stories and metaphors to support my clients as well as movement and experiential activities.


I began my counseling journey in my mid 20s, not as a therapist, but as a stressed out young mother who felt overwhelmed and defeated.

I don’t remember ever being free from the critical voice of self doubt and anxiety. I looked at my life and couldn’t understand why I was not happy.

I had a good life; I should have been happy yet I just couldn’t figure out where I was going wrong.

I could feel myself slipping away and it terrified me.

I remember feeling so alone, unable to authentically connect with others, or myself.

I finally reached the point where I couldn’t stand one more minute feeling like this. I picked up the phone book (yes, you heard me, phone book) and looked up counselors in the yellow pages. I don’t know where I got the courage to call, let alone show up for my appointment, but I’m so glad I did.

I found myself sitting on her couch trusting her and letting her into my

It’s perhaps the most uncomfortable thing I have ever done.

The therapist was about my age, but seemed so put together when I felt so tired and used up.

When I described my symptoms and a bit of my story, she looked at me with kind eyes and asked, “Do you, by chance, have an alcoholic parent?”

Until that moment, I hadn’t been able to put together how deeply my childhood affected me as an adult, my relationships and my ability to feel and connect.

This woman, in this moment, changed my life forever.

This healing journey helped me uncover how I had adapted to the neglect and wild unpredictability of a family tiptoeing around an addict.

Together, we explored how these early childhood patterns manifested in my adult relationships, my work and most importantly, my relationship with myself.

I believe good therapists have spent time on the couch, in therapy, doing the hard work we expect our clients to do.

The journey is not easy, but it can shift everything and help us live our best lives.
