Two new mental health therapists have joined the Orcas Island healing community this spring.

Brandon Adams and Analisa Lee recently opened their private practice office in Eastsound.  Adams is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist Associate who is also trained in EMDR (Eye-Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing). He works with adults, adolescents, couples and families.  In early June, he will complete his training in Play Therapy, and begin accepting children to his practice. An associate member of the American Association of Marriage and Family Therapy, Adams says he finds great satisfaction in helping people create healthier lives.

Lee is a Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate who works with adults, adolescents and couples.  Trained in a variety of psychological healing modalities, including Transpersonal Psychology, Energy Psychology, Expressive Arts, and EMDR, she says she tends toward a more holistic approach to mental wellness.

“Science is continually making discoveries that support the notion of the ‘Bodymind,’ whereby there is flexible interconnectedness between what we think, believe, feel, and experience.  It’s a very exciting time in psychology,” she said.

Although the couple are both originally from the Midwest, Lee is no stranger to Orcas Island.

“I’ve been living here off and on for the past fifteen years,” she said.  “It feels good to come home to the islands. We both love it here.”
