Carley Burton, LMHCA
Hello! My name is Carley, and I am a licensed mental health counselor associate.
I graduated from City University of Seattle, WA in June of 2022, and have been counseling clients for a little over three years. When working with clients, it is my goal to make the space comfortable, safe, and welcoming at all times to allow you to work through your struggles, concerns, and the emotions that come with it.
As a WOC, it is important to me to have equal representation in the mental health field. Through my own personal experience with counseling, I have found that I was able to connect on a deeper level with a counselor who I was able to relate to on a multitude of levels. It is my hope that I can provide the same opportunities to others. I have always had a deep interest in serving and helping others in ways that I did not have access to growing up. Counseling has allowed me to do both, while providing consistency, empathy, and support in other's lives.
My areas of expertise include, but are not limited to: My experience allows me to understand the best ways to address each client’s needs in an effective manner. I am flexible in my approach and use collaboration as the basis of my therapy. My counseling modalities include Person-Centered Therapy, Adlerian Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and Mindfulness.
During my off-time, I enjoy spending quality time with loved ones, painting, discovering a new recipe for the family to try, or spending as much time as possible outside.
Areas of Expertise:
Trauma and PTSD
Grief and loss
Addiction and recovery
Self-esteem and acceptance

Nadia Henderson, Certified Counselor
My name is Nadia Henderson, I completed my Masters in Psychology in September 2022, and I have a BA in Human Service. I have worked in the Native America community as a teacher and in various other roles for 15 years. I have also worked with the developmentally disabled population since 2006. I worked both jobs while completing my education and building my family. I have always had a passion for helping people, thus, I felt that counseling would offer me that satisfaction. I then started working my way to the counseling field by volunteering at the Rescue mission and at my church helping individuals however I could. In June of 2022, I took a leap of faith, ended my time at the school, and began pursuing work in the counseling field and was lead to Puyallup Psychotherapeutic Alliance where I am currently working with a wide array of individuals.

Natalie Sovde, LMFTA
I am an LMFTA and I have worked in the behavioral health field since 2006 as SUDP. I graduated with my MA degree in marriage and family therapy in 2021. I am a firm believer that every person has strengths and my therapeutic approach is rooted in empathy with the belief that each person has abilities to flourish in life, recognizing that trauma and other factors can hide those abilities and strengths deep within us. Therapy is a way to gently explore our inner selves, bringing to light those strengths and hopes to overcome life's challenges in order to live a meaningful life.
