About our counseling

Brenda offers individual counseling for adults, often those who are mental health counselors or health care providers themselves. Using evidence-based treatments is important. Therefore, she specializes in Mindfulness Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral, Nature Therapy and Neurotheology, which unites brain science and psychology with spiritual/religious beliefs and practices.  She provides a variety of counseling settings which include inside the office, outside in the forest or near the water as well as on telehealth and the phone.

"Meeting in the forest is far superior to ANY other setting where I've had therapy before." Erica 




At the end of the day, however, she knows the essential ingredients in helping relationships include authentic, empathic, unconditional care for you.


As a “guide by your side” she'll work with you to discover what’s keeping you from feeling healthy, grounded, and joyful. With new knowledge of your True, Essential Self, you’ll graduate from therapy knowing  how to care for yourself using daily self-care practices to support your ongoing growth and overall well-being.

Dr. Butterfield is a fully licensed mental health counselor in WA State, Lic #LH60490501.
She offers therapy services to adults (face to face in the office, online and outside, nature based as well) at the ONE Center on Steamboat Island just 15 minutes from Olympia.

       New Client Intake & Assessment »

By the time folks make it to their first appointment the last thing they want to do is sit and fill out a lot of paperwork.  While some initial paperwork is required by the State of Washington during the first appointment, we can minimize the time spent on it if you spend a few minutes to review these two documents before we meet. There is NO need to print the following documents.  But please do take time to review them before we meet so you will be an informed consumer when I ask you to sign them during our first appointment.
