Congratulations on taking your brave first step towards self-work and healing! I’m a Certified EMDRIA EMDR Therapist, an EMDRIA Approved Consultant, and Gottman Level 3 trained Therapist, specializing in trauma, anxiety, depression, and couples counseling. I’m also a Gottman Leader in “7 Principles for Making a Marriage Work,” bringing expertise in treating affairs and trauma within relationships. My therapeutic approach combines EMDR with advanced protocols like ASSYST, PRECI, IGTP, and Gottman Couples Therapy, along with CBT and Mindfulness. I am also trained in other specialized protocols such as Sandra Paulsen’s Early Trauma Protocol and “Looking through the Eyes of Trauma and Dissociation.” I offer flexible treatment options, including traditional weekly individual sessions and EMDR Intensives or Couples Counseling Marathons/Intensives, tailored to your unique needs, whether you’ve experienced recent trauma or ongoing stress. Licensed in the state of WA, I provide services through telehealth/online therapy and in-person sessions on Bainbridge Island. Additionally, I am an approved clinical supervisor and a CE Course Developer and Trainer.  I’m committed to supporting professional growth.

Rachelle Lim, MA, LMFTA

I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate and hold a Master’s degree in Counseling specializing in Marriage and Family Therapy from San Diego State University. As an immigrant, I faced various life changes, societal and social pressures which affected my mental health; therefore, I have first hand experience dealing with life transitions, cultural identity issues, and navigating trauma. Additionally, I have worked with immigrant families navigating cultural adjustments, parenting, and strengthening family bonds. I am bilingual in English and Tagalog, and can conduct therapy services in both languages. I am also passionate in advocating for accessible high quality mental health care especially in Asian American communities in order to combat mental health stigma. Outside of my therapist role, I love being in nature (walking, hiking, kayaking), practicing yoga, mindfulness meditation, cuddling with my dogs, trying new cuisines, and traveling to new places.
