About

Compass Counseling & Consulting is a safe place for women to grow, heal, and work toward cultivating the life they want.

Life inevitably brings about changes and circumstances that can cause you to feel nervous, angry, sad, or overwhelmed. Painful emotions tell us that something isn’t right; something’s out of balance. The therapeutic relationship provides a safe space for you to begin the process of healing. By expressing your pain in an accepting atmosphere, and engaging in self-exploration, you are likely to uncover past wounds that are still impacting your life today. Counseling aims to help you discover new ways of handling life’s challenges, expressing your feelings in a healthy way, improving relationships, and increasing your overall quality of life.

 

Holly Morseman, M.A., LPC, Director: Compassionate counselor and consultant who believes that healthy living requires your mind, body, spirit, and emotions to be in harmony with each other. I believe that people are greater than the sum of their parts and encourage therapeutic work in all areas of life. I know that you are the expert of your own life and will treat you as such. My counseling style is person-centered, authentic, eclectic, and collaborative. I draw from the latest mental health research to inform the techniques I use in my practice. I am dedicated to counseling from a non-judgmental, multicultural perspective that honors each person’s uniqueness.

I specialize in working with adult women on a range of issues such as workplace stress, anxiety, depression, life transitions, PTSD, low self-esteem, etc. Having experienced trauma myself, I find working with trauma survivors particularly rewarding. I also really enjoy working with students, other mental health/medical professionals, small business owners or those wanting to start small businesses, and young adults.

My education includes a Master of Arts in Counseling Psychology from Pacific University with completion of the Organizational Consulting Track, and a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Washington State University. I am also a certified SMART® Recovery Group Facilitator.
