Eryn Skye Phelps, Internal Family Systems therapist, EMDR certified
Eryn is a licensed mental health counselor in the State of Washington. She believes in the profound healing abilities of nature as well as feeling understood, rather than judged. She is an Internal Family Systems therapist and certified in EMDR by EMDRIA. She uses these modalities to help individuals recognize their inherent strength and value and release burdensome memories and beliefs. Eryn has lived and worked across the country from Alaska to New England at residential treatment centers, wilderness therapy programs, summer camps, public and private schools, and community health centers. She earned a Master's Degree in Mental Health Counseling from Plymouth State University in New Hampshire, and a Bachelor's Degree in Creative Writing from the University of Montana. She spends much of her time outside with her dog Anchor, who helps keep her grounded. While Anchor is not a certified therapy dog, he is pretty good at listening.
Eryn first became a licensed counselor under the supervision of Will White, co-founder of Summit Achievement in Stow, Maine. She continues to study EMDR under Amber Stiles-Bodnar and Jamie Marich of The Institute for Creative Mindfulness. She completed Level One Internal Family Systems training in Ericeira, Portugal under Susan McConnell and Osnat Arbel.
What Clients Have to Say
"You’re supposed to be happy after surviving a near-death experience, right?! I was recovered after five minutes, buried six feet below an avalanche. The grief and PTSD that followed came with confusion, anger, fear and depression. Eryn understood. Having a relationship with the mountains herself, she was the first counselor who could relate to me. Throughout our sessions using EMDR therapy I noticed my body shaking less, and my mind- my story -becoming clearer. EMDR therapy wasn’t burying my experience, rather, uncovering it and giving me the tools to process each trigger as a witness instead of a victim."
"I attended Eryn’s practice in 2019. As a police officer, EMDR therapy assisted me with overcoming PTSD situations incurred from work. The therapy has improved my quality of life and provided skills to utilize when needed. I am healthier mentally. Thank you again for all you do and helping me through my situations. Everything is so much more calm in my life especially at home. I can’t thank you enough."
