Hi, I’m Cassady.
I help people experiencing anxiety, depression and low self-worth to move into a place of healing, self-acceptance and confidence.
I love working with people who want support and freedom from their own beliefs that they are not good enough. Many of us feel we must be a certain way before before we can feel good about ourselves, which often leads to emotional rollercoasters, toxic self-talk and unhealthy coping. My goal is to promote healthy self-esteem by providing insight, tools and a safe place to be yourself.
Along with my personal experience living with type 1 diabetes for over 23 years, I have specialized training in Medical Family Therapy and believe there is a strong connection between the mind and the body. I am passionate about sharing strategies (a fair amount of which I have learned hard way!) that address issues like adjusting to a new diagnosis and disease burnout (among others) because I'd like to save you some time, wheel-spinning and goose-chasing.
When I’m not working,
you can find me traveling the world, utilizing my Netflix membership, going for a walk or enjoying Mexican food with my husband and two cats (don’t worry—the cats don’t eat the Mexican food).
Organizations I have worked with
Aside from my professional training (see above), I have spoken at events put on by other organizations including the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, the American Diabetes Association, the College Diabetes Network, Camp Leo, and the Crohns & Colitis Foundation of America. I have been a guest blogger for Kerri Sparling's Six Until Me and WeAreDiabetes.org, and am currently running the University of Washington Type 1 Diabetes support group at the Diabetes Care Center. I am also the Board President ConnecT1D, an organization local to the Pacific Northwest that works to build community and address the psychosocial needs of people living with T1D.
