Kelly Edmundson, MA, LMFT, LCADC, EMDR

Psychotherapist
Occidental CA
As your therapist, I am an engaged consultant and collaborator committed to you through this unfolding journey. My hope is that you experience meaningful shifts soon. I provide integrative mind-body focused counseling to adults who are ready to access themselves in powerful ways.
I'm a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and Licensed Clinical Alcohol & Drug Counselor splitting my time between Lake Tahoe, NV and West Sonoma, CA. I am currently enrolled in the Certificate in Psychedelic-Assisted Therapies and Research training program at CIIS in San Francisco (2022-2023). This includes training modules in MAPS clinical trial of MDMA-assisted psychotherapy for treatment-resistant PTSD. I'm certified in EMDR therapy by the EMDR International Association. I weave elements of several contemplative practices and mind-body modalities into the art and practice of counseling. I enjoy exploring Lake Tahoe and the Northern California coast with my family, dog and friends. I thrive being with nature and enjoy meandering through the forests and meadows, hiking, playing in the ocean, lakes and rivers, hot springs, mountain biking, yoga, meditation, dance, art, backcountry and nordic skiing, golf, music, art, cooking and learning.
I offer services to adults living in CA and NV. Some areas I specialize in include: - Healing from traumatic or distressing experiences & memories, attachment wounds & post-trauma growth - Issues facing people in helping/healing & education professions (trauma, burnout, overwhelm, vicarious trauma, boundaries, moral injury, anxiety, panic) - Preparation and Integration therapy for psychedelics & entheogens - Exploring consciousness, spirituality, transpersonal & existential themes in depth - Creative growth & creative blocks - Overcoming intrusive fears & phobias - LGBTQIAP+ affirmative care
