My name is Mandy Traut of New Connections Counseling. I am a licensed mental health therapist (LMHC) in Lynnwood, Washington. As your therapist, I am your guide, advocate, and cheerleader helping you uncover, own, and advocate for your inner truth. Depending on your needs, I will help you through the self-discovery process as well as support you in creating, maintaining and fostering all forms of positive relationships. Let me empower you to, overcome adversity, transcend shame, honor your true self, and work towards establishing meaningful relationships.
I believe we are great story tellers. In the end, then, we are as great (or limited) as the stories we tell ourselves about our self-worth, our inner power, our relationships, and our effect in the world. In helping you connect to your truth, I aim to encourage you to rewrite those stories that are negative or outdated, replacing them with stories that are more conducive to growth, empowerment, and self-acceptance. I look forward to walking this journey with you, bearing witness to the amazing inner wisdom and self-healing powers I believe you already possess.
