Joellen Kenyon, MA, LMHC * Ballard Counselor

Hi I’m Jo, a Ballard counselor working with Folktown Counseling. I seek to help clients in the community heal from the confusion and heartache of trauma as well as a wide range of emotional and relational issues including depression, anxiety or relationship concerns.

I obtained my masters in Counseling Psychology through The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology. My approach to therapy is influenced by my studies in psychoanalytic relational psychology which holds to an atmosphere of curiosity and openness to help clients better understand themselves and others.  I see therapy as a place to grow and learn in a relationship more than problem solving. I believe that most wounding occurs within relationship and therefore healing comes as well in relationship rather than in isolation.

Having personally experienced trauma and loss, I understand the importance of providing a place of safety to work through areas of grief and relational brokenness. I seek to counsel with grace, gentleness and truth in an environment that gently challenges your personal growth. As a Ballard counselor concerned about affordability of therapy, I offer a sliding scale for clients who do not meet criteria for insurance reimbursement.

For more information please contact me.
